For most of my childhood my sister and I played the piano and on a pretty sweet piano might I add. However in twelve years of playing the piano and executing recital pieces, my junior year in high school I played a piece I had practiced a thousand times but when it came time for that particular recital, I completely butchered the song. Ok, maybe I'm being a bit dramatic but I did mess up and I wasn't happy about it; in fact I was mortified and after that I didn't continue my practicing. It's been close to a year since I've touched the keys of a piano and of course I'm starting to miss an instrument that played such an important part in my life. I've recently become a huge fan of Jon McLaughlin and greatly admire Vanessa Carlton and Sara Bareilles piano skills. With a little inspiration to get back into playing let's see how well these dusty little fingers do for my first time in such a long time.
Now that I have a free summer from school, I've been thinking about how I want to spend all my free time and since I'm the kind of person who is constantly setting goals, I've come up with just a few which include finishing up a collection of short stories I've been working on for the past five years, a few little trips, dropping five to seven pounds and getting back into playing the piano. How do you spend your summer, have any goals to work on, please share I'd love to know.
This has been one relaxing week and I couldn't be more pleased, I hope yours went as smooth as mine. School officially ended, I've been sleeping like a baby, have had this bedroom in mind all week and have already read a book and a half, it's turning out to be a good week. I'm traveling for an extended weekend, getting reacquainted with the mid-west (hopefully enjoying a little cooler weather than back home in the desert) and watching my sister graduate from grad school. Can you say YAYYY?!!! So sit back relax and have a lovely weekend, see you Monday!!!
