When I bring this up to my real life friends… I basically get called a geek and a nerd. Which I am fine with by the way. Even my Mac decal is Snow White in geek glasses.

There’s this music studio is my neck of the woods that just put a sign on their window offering up ukulele lessons. It’s the strangest thing but I am sort of really considering taking them!! I’m so old -I feel like it’s too late for me to learn an instrument. But at the same time, I keep thinking to myself… WHY NOT???

I am absolutely obsessed with Ingrid Michaelson and there’s this song on one of her albums that I play on repeat which has a ukulele in it. Suddenly, I’m picturing myself being able to play this stupid song and I get all giddy and ridiculous.

My cousin came over last night to watch a movie with me and I was telling her. Her response?

Dead Face.

She was like… are you kidding  me? The ukulele? What are you going to do? Bring it to the beach and play around a bonfire.

And I said that sounded like a fantastic idea!! lol

I just don’t know. I really WANT TO DO THIS – but fear of failure is always something that lumes over me. When I want to learn something, I dive right in and I don’t stop until I am a master of whatever I decided on. It’s all or nothing. It’s the only way I play.

Do I have it in me?

Did you pick up an instrument at a later age? I need advice!!!
