The Cello Tag | The Cure To My Writer’s Block

the-cello-tag-2-0

Celllo? Oh dear.

I was nominated ages ago to do this tag – thank you so much Kaylyn for the kind nomination! You must check out her blog. She has certainly moved around, but where she is right now is a beautiful place to be. 

Oh, isn’t it just typical. To not have the time to write when I’m motivated. No instead, I have time when I really don’t have motivation. It’s drives me wild: being in bed having thoughts that are life-changing, blog-changing, world-changing. 

I literally just sang that paragraph back to myself… we all have our quirks!

I was nominated ages ago to do this tag – thank you so much Kaylyn for the kind nomination! You must check out her blog. She has certainly moved around, but where she is right now is a beautiful place to be. 

The rules:

  • You must list these rules in your post
  • You must thank the person who nominated you and give a link to their blog (linked above)
  • Put the link to the original post in your post: it’s right here!
  • You must put The Cello Tag’s button on your post (I had trouble with this, but I hope it’s okay.)
  • Come up with five cello/orchestra/violin (orchestral family) facts and put them in your post (keep reading and you’ll find it!).
  • You may only reuse one fact from the previous post that nominated you.
  • Nominate 3-5 people (naughty me, I nominated all of you!)
  • Notify your nominees and send them a link to your tag post. Well HELLO!

The facts: (I’ll be ranting a bit here)

  • All of the family I live with play a string instrument, that’s my mum, dad and brother. And they all play guitar!
  • I’ve been in a ditch this month and I really am trying my hardest to get out of it. School hit hard and with it my over-thinking (where are you going with this Erin) so my Cello has slid out of hand, quite literally, I haven’t been picking it up recently. But after my second lesson of the new academic year I think something may be hitting again, a little spark of motivation.
  • I forgot to say at the start, I play Cello!
  • I have been playing the Cello for just over half a year and only broken a single string! (If you are interested it was my D string.).
  • I joined a String Group today! Whoop!

Thanks for reading, I have found that little spark and I hope you are full of flames! I nominate any readers reading! If you are maybe on a writer’s block or feel really groggy, a tag is a good way to keep posting!

Oh, and don’t worry if you don’t play any of these instruments, Google can do the work for you!

I really appreciate all your likes and comments, thank you for those.

Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow | How Bad Are Your’s?

Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow: Tag

What does this remind you of? To me it reminds me how lucky I am to have those days. In those days I have smiled so much, met people I have never seen before, greeted family I haven’t seen since earlier this year. And as I look back at the photos I grin, then I yawn… and I finally thank.

  • Thank the person who nominated you and give a link to their blog.
  • Answer all three questions: at least a paragraph for each.
  • Tag 10+ people

Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.

What does this remind you of? To me it reminds me how lucky I am to have those days. In those days I have smiled so much, met people I have never seen before, greeted family I haven’t seen since earlier this year. And as I look back at the photos I grin, then I yawn… and I finally thank.

Yesterday I was at home mostly all day. My brother and I’s friends went up to a nearby wood – with to many Nerf guns for our own good and had a Nerf War. My dad taught us things he did when he was an air cadet, as I sweated myself out because I was wearing dungarees in 24 degree heat. In the rest of the afternoon I took all the clothes from my old wardrobe into the new (it was set up that morning), watched Doctor Who and drew like nobody’s buisness. I’ll show you the page of sketches:

I digitalised the second.

Today I am writing blog posts, for today and Friday. After this I will practise my Cello thoroughly as I have been on camp and then holiday so everything I’ve learnt this year is slacking. I’m meant to be ‘ready for my Grade One’ at the end of these holidays… 

But today I am going shopping with my best friend (who lives away and I have not seen her since 6ish weeks ago). There will be photos and laughter and trying on ridiculous clothes…! I can’t wait.

Tomorrow I have nothing planned. Tomorrow I will be at home sketching and hopefully writing. It will be a chill day, I’m thinking. I will do my best to read all of your recent blog posts and set my blog up and running again. It’s been at the back of my mind at the minute.

I nominate:

Kaylyn Grace (beingwhoimmeanttobe.wordpress.com)

Natalie (takinghtecakee.wordpress.com)

This Or That | Tag

Aren’t I getting popular being nominated for all these tags? Aww, thank you Becca for the nomination! She keeps on being so kind! I am loving taking part in these tags – this one is definitely the most challenging, This Or That? Argh!

Before I start babbling on, shall we get started?

The Rules:

  1. Thank and tag the person that has tagged you
  2. Attach the tag photo (couldn’t find it)
  3. Answers the This or That questions
  4. Tag 10-20 friends (I’m a rebel)

The Questions:

  • Dog or Cat? I think it’s probably cat – however I love both.
  • Netflix or YouTube? YouTube – there are so many things on there! Plus I don’t even own Netflix (what a saddo)
  • Phone Call or Text? Text, it can be less awkward that way.
