Are you getting tired of my blogs about my cats? SHOULD I WRITE ABOUT SOMETHING DIFFERENT THIS TIME? (Rhetorical question). I GUESS I WILL WRITE ABOUT ONE OF MY FAVORITE POSSESIONS-MY GUITAR. (Dash to emphasize the last element of the sentence). My seven string guitar to be specific, since I have a handful of different guitars.
I bought this guitar during the fall of my senior year of high school. I was jamming with a friend of mine, and we decided to take a break and go to Sam Ash, a music store. WE WANDERED AROUND, MESSING AROUND ON DIFFERENT PIANOS AND GUITARS. THEN I SAW IT. A SEVEN STRING IBANEZ ON SALE, CHEAPER THAN I HAD EVER SEEN ONE BEFORE. (Then and than).
I PICKED IT UP AND LOOKED AT IT FROM ALL ANGLES AND PLAYED IT FOR AWHILE. (Simple sentence with compound verbs connected by ands). After a few minutes I decided that I needed it. I had been working at Arby's for about a year at this point so I had some money saved up. I THOUGHT THIS WOULD BE A GREAT USE FOR MY MONEY, HOWEVER MY MOTHER DISAGREED. (However).
SHE TRIED TO CONVINCE ME TO TAKE IT BACK AND GET MY MONEY BACK, BUT I WAS STUBBORN (SOMETHING I AM VERY GOOD AT DOING), AND INSISTED ON KEEPING THE GUITAR. I AM GLAD I DID. (Long sentence followed by short sentence). This particular guitar has gone all over the country with me and I have written many songs on it.
A few years ago I decided the guitar needed a paint job. I took the guitar back to Indiana over Christmas break (I was living in Miami at the time), and painted candy cane stripes on it. It was originally black, but now it is black and bright red candy cane striped.
BY PAINTING IT, I MADE IT MORE UNIQUE AND MORE A PART OF ME. (One sentence paragraph).
DO YOU HAVE ANY POSSESIONS THAT HAVE BECOME AN IMPORTANT PART OF YOUR LIFE? (Real question).
