I just purchased a guitar. Sometimes I baffle myself. Up until approximately three days ago, I have never had any sort of inclination to learn how to play any instrument. Then I walk into an instrument store and pretty soon, the whole world evolves around whether or not I should learn how to play guitar or trumpet. I decided on purchasing a guitar, as my friends and family awared me of the fact that me practicing playing a trumpet is not going to be a pretty sight. Anyway, I ended up getting an amazing deal on a guitar (this is coming from a guy who has been fanatically obsessed with guitars for total of two days) but made a somewhat irrational decision on this. I really wanted to learn how to play this instrument, but it’s going to be a long long road. I just watched the instructional video that came with the guitar and it wanted me make return the darn thing.
So I just went back to the store and returned my guitar. 58 minutes after purchasing it. That has to be a record. It was quite challenging to present my case to the sales clerk. Surely, the quickest case of buyer’s remorse the guy has ever seen.
Back at the house, sitting next to my laptop (this story is written in real time) I have realized that it might not be the appropiate time for me to start something new all over again. I really would like to bring a little consistency into my life and maybe pursue the same activity for more than a week at a time. For now, I am sticking with comedy, golf and exercising. At some point I am going to learn how to play the guitar, but right now I really want to prove myself that I can succeed with the hobbies I have dedicated myself to.
