Hi guys! My name is Gabrielle, I am 15 years old, and I play the oboe. A picture of my oboe, Veronique (yes, she has a name), is in my avatar. I love to read, chat online, read and write fanfiction, play my instruments, and talk A LOT. :D
Oh, and I'm the typical totally-beyond-obsessed Twiwhore.
Fave Cullen boy: Jasper! (sorry guys! Edward is hot, but I like Jasper better!)
Favorite Twilight character: Alice, Bella, Jasper, and Edward
Fave TV show: House, MD
Favorite music genre: pretty much everything. Favorite classical composers are Shostakovitch (string quartets are amazing, as are his symphonies), Mozart, Beethoven,
Random Funny Junk (well it's funny to me)
When life hands you lemons, make grape juice, then sit back and watch the world wonder how you did it.
When life hands you lemons, throw 'em back and demand Edward (or Jasper lol)
Don't try anything, oboists carry knives
Save the orchestra...tune the oboes
Forgive your enemies - it messes with their heads :P
If all the world's a stage, then why do I keep falling in the orchestra pit?
I wouldn't have OCD if everyone else would just do things the right way.
Your shin (n): a device used to find furniture in the dark
Alice in Wonderland Oh! Is that the story of Alice before she went into the Asylum?
People that don't know me think I'm quiet. People that do wish I was.
Sarcasm. It's easier than actually having to deal with stupid people.
If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.
Quotes Relating to Vegetarianism (Oh yes, I'm going there!)
Why should a man expect his prayer for mercy to be heard by what is above him when he shows no mercy to what is under him? -Pierre Troubetzkoy
Hunting is not a sport; in a sport, both sides should know they're in the game. -Paul Rodriguez
My perspective of veganism was most affected by learning that the veal calf is a by-product of dairying, and that in essence there is a slice of veal in every glass of what I had thought was an innocuous white liquid - milk. -Rynn Berry
Truly man is the king of beasts, for his brutality exceeds theirs. We life by the death of others: we are burial places! I have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men such as I will look on the murder of animals as they now look on the murder of men. -Leonardo da Vinci
It is my view that the vegetarian manner of living by its purely physical effect on the human temperament would most beneficially influence the lot of mankind. —Albert Einstein
Our task must be to free ourselves— by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty. —Albert Einstein
Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet. —Albert Einstein
Vegetarian food leaves a deep impression on our nature. If the whole world adopts vegetarianism, it can change the destiny of mankind. —Albert Einstein
Thousands of people who say they ‘love' animals sit down once or twice a day to enjoy the flesh of creatures who have been utterly deprived of everything that could make their lives worth living and who endured the awful suffering and the terror of the abattoirs. —Jane Goodall
Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages. —Thomas A. Edison
If we cut up beasts simply because they cannot prevent us and because we are backing our own side in the struggle for existence, it is only logical to cut up imbeciles, criminals, enemies, or capitalists for the same reasons.
The assumption that animals are without rights and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance is a positively outrageous example of Western crudity and barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality. —Arthur Shopenhauer
People often say that humans have always eaten animals, as if this is a justification for continuing the practice. According to this logic, we should not try to prevent people from murdering other people, since this has also been done since the earliest of times. —Isaac Bashevis Singer
Nothing more strongly arouses our disgust than cannibalism, yet we make the same impression on Buddhists and vegetarians, for we feed on babies, though not our own. —Robert Louis Stevenson

A Player's Guide to keeping Conductors in Line
Never be satisfied with the tuning note. Fussing about the pitch takes attention away from the podium and puts it on you, where it belongs. When raising the music stand, be sure the top comes off and spills the music on the floor. Complain about the temperature of the rehearsal room, the lighting, crowded space, or a draft. It's best to do this when the conductor is under pressure. Look the other way just before cues. Never have the proper mute, a spare set of strings, or extra reeds. Percussion players must never have all their equipment. Ask for a re-audition or seating change. Ask often. Give the impression you're about to quit. Let the conductor know you're there as a personal favor. Pluck the strings as if you are checking tuning at every opportunity, especially when the conductor is giving instructions. Brass players: drop mutes. Percussionists have a wide variety of dropable items, but cymbals are unquestionably the best because they roll around for several seconds. Loudly blow water from the keys during pauses (Horn, oboe and clarinet players are trained to do this from birth). Long after a passage has gone by, ask the conductor if your C# was in tune. This is especially effective if you had no C# or were not playing at the time. (If he catches you, pretend to be correcting a note in your part.) At dramatic moments in the music (while the conductor is emoting) be busy marking your music so that the climaxes will sound empty and disappointing. Wait until well into a rehearsal before letting the conductor know you don't have the music. Look at your watch frequently. Shake it in disbelief occasionally. Tell the conductor, "I can't find the beat." Conductors are always sensitive about their "stick technique", so challenge it frequently. As the conductor if he has listened to the Bernstein recording of the piece. Imply that he could learn a thing or two from it. Also good: ask "Is this the first time you've conducted this piece?" When rehearsing a difficult passage, screw up your face and shake your head indicating that you'll never be able to play it. Don't say anything: make him wonder. If your articulation differs from that of others playing the same phrase, stick to your guns. Do not ask the conductor which is correct until backstage just before the concert. Find an excuse to leave rehearsal about 15 minutes early so that others will become restless and start to pack up and fidget. During applause, smile weakly or show no expression at all. Better yet, nonchalantly put away your instrument. Make the conductor feel he is keeping you from doing something really important.

7 Reasons Not to Mess with Children (small children)
A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales.
A Kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they were drawing. She would occasionally walk around to see each child's work.
A Sunday school teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments with her five and six year olds.
One day a little girl was sitting and watching her mother do the dishes at the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed that her mother had several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast on her brunette head.
The children had all been photographed, and the teacher was trying to persuade them each to buy a copy of the group picture.
A teacher was giving a lesson on the circulation of the blood. Trying to make the matter clearer, she said, "Now, class, if I stood on my head, the blood, as you know, would run into it, and I would turn red in the face."
The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made a note, and posted on the apple tray:
Some pictures of my stuff.
