    I feel like I'm less of a person

    because I can't play any kind of musical instrument. When someone asks me "What instruments can you play?", I just keep quiet or say I don't know how to play any. And I feel stupid and belittled for not knowing.

    I never had a chance to learn it.

    And I regret it. I really wish I would have learnd to play violin or piano. Maybe one day, when I have a lot of time for myself, I'll make a try. :)

    I Wish I Could

    I'm like a super talent on guitar hero and rock band. I can even rock a fisher price xylophone pretty hard. You'd think I could just pick up a guitar and blaze it, but alas, it is not to be.
