    I enjoy cello, reading, discussing books and movies, video games, and observing behaviors of more usual people my age. Music, music, music, music.

    Welcome to the shard! Do you play an instrument?
  2. Hello and welcome! Do you play an instrument?
  3. Hey, everybody, I really, really need to be able to calm down right now.

    What do you people do when that happens? Any tips or ideas?

    Thanks in advance. You people are all awesome.

      My dad always want us to do this, because he says it puts him to sleep.

      Just sit and close your eyes and describe what each of your five senses are feeling right then.

      Whenever I feel stressed or panicked, I usually withdraw into that creative space somewhere... calmer. If I need to focus on the current situation, I start to think of a song, and let that sooth the stress in the background. If all else fails, just sketching or drawing really helps.

      (I might be too late for this, but I hope this helps!)

  4. Thank you, and I agree, though I do think it is somewhat part of my natural disposition to be shy.
  5. Hi, I'm definitely an introvert, and also the oldest. I personally think there isn't really any correlation between personality and birth order, but it might be interesting to look more in to that.
  6. Vin, I think. I like Vin and find her relatable. I'm going to say dragons because they are awesome and I'm too tired to think of anything else. Fantasy animals are so cool. My favorite real-life animal is difficult, so I'm going to say rabbits because I have pet rabbits and they are so cute. Hmmm, my favorite Sonata? I wouldn't say I know enough of them to give a super well thought out opinion, but I love the Sonata in G minor by Henry Eccles. (Cello, obviously) I'm not good at picking favorites, and this one is especially tough. Vivaldi, Bach, and Edward Elgar are some of my favorites, but Mendelssohn, Debussy, Rachmaninoff, and Tchaikovsky have a lot of great pieces as well. Honestly, I just really like music. It's really hard to pick favorites. Not completely, no. I'm always open to listening to new music, however.
  7. "Oh my gosh. Seriously. Leave me alone you little demon!" The Cellist was very not pleased. He was actually on very good terms with the Being of Ultimate Cookies and was very mad that Noot now wanted to sacrifice him to his good friend. In anger, the Cellist summoned Butt Venture through a portal he created in the floor. Butt Venture then ate all of the cookies that Noot was making.
  8. I do! Except it's not massive, it's not very stressful because the music is easy, except it actually is because it's my school orchestra and most of the people can't play the super easy music for some reason. It's more just an annoyance. I did, however, play a concert with my local symphony orchestra, and that was kind of stressful.
  9. YESYESYESYES!!! That's awesome!
  10. I mean, I don't know. I don't feel very bossy.
