Music feeds my soul

So last Wednesday I turned 28. I've been in Hawaii the last few years on my birthday so it consisted of school sometimes but usually i'd ditch and go chill on the north shore with my good friends and go surf all day. I started a good tradition out there of buying myself a present on my birthday. When it came this year I had no clue what to do during the day. I told my bro-n-law that I was gonna go out and find something cool to purchase whether it be a shirt or an electric guitar. Well my friends, i did find a cool rvca shirt.But it gets much better. I found myself drifting over to the local music shop browsing in the electric guitar section and then saw this kid from my homeward who worked there and told me he'd hook me up with his discount. So this is what i ended up with:

and....
Thats right an acoustic-electric ukele and an amp. Im stoked for it. I've wanted an uke since living in hawaii. And one of my goals this year is to spend more time on my hobbies and specifically writing music and getting better. Maybe I will drop some tunes on this and see what ya think. Aloha!

Dan I love you! I love music, it is the best thing in the whole world. I wish so bad that there were a soundtrack to my life, that would be the most amazing thing ever! I am always up for new music! So shoot it my way love, because I will eat it up! I love your ukulele. I'm glad you had a sweet Birthday! Maybe one day the planets will align and you can teach me how to surf! And.... you can teach me to play the guitar. 2 things that I've always wanted to do! And you do them, I'm so jealous! I'm also jealous that you went somewhere with nice enough weather to surf. Me, I just get my tan these days with light bulbs and it sucks ass! Sorry, there's just not a better way to describe the weather right now. I gotta go get Akira from school, he doesn't like it when I'm not first in line.... MUSIC FEEDS MY SOUL TOO! We're twins!

Dan, you are awesome!! Happy Birthday! That's so cool you bought a ukulele. You better start practicing so we can see your skills next year at grandma's talent show.

So I think we should do a Kettle family reunion in Hawaii, you in?

Wow you're old!! if that was a gun, instead of a guitar, you'd look like a hunter in your flannel shirt and hat

Happy Birthday old man! I think it is great that you are spending more time this year on your hobbies, and I fully expect an autographed copy of your first ukulele cd!
