Hey there, diary! It's me, Kumiko Oumae. I thought it would be nice to sit down and write about myself today. So grab a cup of tea and let's dive into my world.

I live near the beautiful Byodoin temple with my family - my elder sister Mamiko, our parents, and our adorable pet cat Mochi. Our home is cozy and filled with laughter, especially when Mamiko decides to blast her music in the mornings.

Music has always been a huge part of my life. I remember being captivated by the sounds of instruments since I was a little girl. That's why joining the Kitauji Concert Band was like a dream come true for me. Playing the euphonium gives me such joy and fulfillment that words can't quite capture.

School life at Kitauji High School is both challenging and exciting. Balancing academics with band practice can be tough sometimes, but it's all worth it when we perform together as a unit on stage. My friends Hazuki, Sapphire "Midori," Reina hold special places in my heart; they're like family to me.

Speaking of Reina... she's more than just a friend to me; she's someone who understands me deeply without needing many words exchanged between us (though we do talk plenty). Our bond goes beyond friendship - some might even say there are feelings beyond platonic love between us...

But enough about that! Let's focus on something else for now: food! Oh boy do I love egg dishes – omuraisu is definitely one of my favorites! And don't get me started on insects... yuck!

In between practicing music pieces tirelessly and spending lazy afternoons slacking around at home or hanging out with Reina listening to music (mostly classics), life feels pretty good right now despite its ups-and-downs.

Well then diary, until next time~
