It was a great last day in Paris! Now I'm at my grandparents' and it's going well too. Yesterday my grandfather and I went to a music store where I found a guitar I've wanted since I was twelve and saw it first. It's not that expensive (compared to 3000 dollar guitars) but I can't get it right now. I already know the guitar I want and it's a beautiful guitar. It's also a "normal-looking" guitar, while the one from yesterday is quite different. I showed my friend a picture yesterday and he went "eek!" but when I pick it up, it feels amazing, the sound is incredible, and I guess I like that it's weird. The guy at the store said it's a pretty rare guitar so they won't always have it all the time. I said "prob not many people want it" to which he responded "That is true!" and made that weighing-your-options hand gesture. We didn't leave empty handed, I bought a stand that I can use for my ukelele or mandolin. It's great! 
I'm so excited about decorating and putting everything away in my room at Smith! I can't believe I'm a junior. I want to tell you about the rugs that I bought, but I'll wait and give you a "tour" of my room once I'm done unpacking. I think I'll also wait until I get my new instruments... It's going to be a great year!

Cheers!

Wouldn't it be so sad if the guitar was gone?

And for years you'd think, "I should've just bought it, why didn't I just buy it?"

Then, one day you'd see it.

Like a prodigal child.

In the arms of an elderly man.

He's plays sweetly, but purposefully, for those subway passengers.

You smile to yourself, and continue on your way.

Maybe it wasn't meant to be your guitar after all.

It would be sad, but guitar center isn't the only place to find it... Vx
