When the same team has won State every single year SO has been in that state except for one. Its rigged but no one else seems to give a crap except for the teams that lose every single year.

THAT ANNOYS ME.

7th position isn't annoying. It's the even ones... :evil:

Drawing annoys me too. I know what I want it to look like, and I can't express how much I want to make it look like that, but I just can't.

i know exactly what you mean, about both things. the even positions are definitely harder to learn and more annoying to play. and as for the art thing, YES YES YES. i love to draw, but my pictures almost NEVER turn out the way i want them to. and the more i try to fix them, the more they get messed up...

-when people try to hit a high note (singing or violin) and its just the slightest bit out of tune.... it drives me insaaaaane.
-center chin rests are really weird but i don't mind them. they just make the person using them look sorta funny 'cause his/her hand ends up waaay past his/her nose when playing at the frog. haha.
-i absolutely cannot stand suck ups at school. especially when teachers fall for it.
-people who brag about grades, or people who imply that they are smarter than everyone else during conversations... but its really obvious that they're just bragging. those people seriously make me want to punch them in the face... because not only are they being so immodest, immature, and just annoying, but they aren't that great at whatever they brag about.

I don't think 8th position is as bad as 2nd 4th and 6th. Once you go that high, you don't really have many preconceptions as to what finger plays which note. EDIT: Actually, it is pretty annoying. At least it's not as common as the others.

And for drawing, I like drawing manga, but I can't get the whole face right, so my notebooks basically just have eyes in them :lol:
