    I hope this isn't too late, it seems like your mind is already made up. But I need to give you my 2 cents too. Sorry if it goes too long.

    Aldrine, I see you and all the others here like an ukulele. I believe we all play this instrument, because we want to show others, how beautiful this instrument is. A diamond in the rough. There is so much more to this instrument than others can fathom. We've all been through it when we've watched some of your's and other's videos. How many times did we have to stop ourselves and rewind only to still not believe the beauty that comes from this instrument. Bro, there's so much more to you than just being a musician. If that girl's family or her don't see it, then that's their bad. You're actually lucky, you didn't get deeper into the relationship than you had. I mean, it seems, if it isn't one thing then it's another. It's obvious money and status is how they judge people. I as well as other's believe we should judge the character of the person, not the job/material posessions they have. You should separate yourself from that negativity.

    Don't quit your passion for spite, because you'll only regret it in the end.

    If you feel deep down inside, that you need to go to school, get a degree, by all means do that. This will only bring you more options in the future. But there is no reason for you to shut down who you are, what you enjoy. The best study break is probably bringing out your uke to relax a bit.

    I know it hurts, it's going to take awhile. I've been through it, other's have been through it, but you'll get through it.

    I'll leave you with this, I don't want to be rude, but, Aldrine, Man the F#$% Up!!! Be happy with who you are, and what you've accomplished. Count all the blessings that you have right now. These bad cards that you think you've been dealt are so miniscule to what others are going through. You obviously have a great family that has nurtured you and your talent. A bunch of great friends, and a following of online members that look up to you, and hope you can find your way through this problem. I hope you make the decision that's best for you.

    Well said bro...I was thinking the same thing. I really hope Aldrine reconsiders because he might regret it one of these days, but in the end, it's still his decision.

    Smile Hey Aldrine

    Hey Aldrine. Luckily I stumbled across your lessons and performances on youtube.com. I have seen a lot of great uke talent on youtube etc. Besides Jake's performances, yours were the only ones where I yelled to my girlfriend in the other room "Hey come check this out." I wanted to show her how talented you were. She agrees of course. Not only are you a great uke talent, but you also have a very pure/great voice at the same time. I will be very bummed if you all don't continue with this site and what you are doing in regards to promoting the uke. As a fairly new uke player myself, I need a comfortable place to go to in order to find tips etc. Please move forward with this great concept. I think you guys are on to something here..

    a man you got a grate amount of skill and natural musical talent. When i first found your videos i just thought they where the coolst then when you started doing the lesons on iamhawaii i was checkin like every other day wating for the next vid then when i heard about the UU i thought it was so cool being from the mainland, there arent that many ukulele players that i could get in touch with so this was another grate way to meet other players besides the few i alredy know.

    I encourge you not to give up on your drems and not to give up on music ither. There are so many things that you can do with it. If music is your true passion you should go for it just cause theres some trouble now, dont mean its not guna get better.The site wont be the same without you and the entier ukulele community will lose out.
