OK so I know I am always talking about how bad I am doing on learning piano, but when I really think about it, Im not so bad. I am definately not so great yet either. But I am just a student afterall and havent been playing long. So I am proud of where I am and what I am learning. I need to be more positive about it. I have realized though that some songs I seem to understand easier. That this song I am currently learning about Mary sifting sand.... it kinds stinks big time (at least when I play it) but Clementine...she's my darling! :) I am really starting to learn the notes, to be able to play a little faster because I am not spending as much time trying to count/ figure out which note comes next. So thats exciting for me! Now I just need to continue working on my fingering and chords! Oh and that whole issue of playing both hands at once...Im still a little sticky there too but its all good! Afterall I have an amazing teacher with a lot of patience so its great!
So today (well I guess technically yesterday since it's after 2 am) I got to go see Mamma Mia. It was incredible. I just recently learned (from the preview for the upcoming movie) that Mamma Mia is based on ABBA songs. Which I don't know very many of, other than Dancing Queen which I think is universally known! So anyways I got a call at 8:30 am that something came up and Renee's parents weren't going to be able to go and she was wondering if I would care to join her in seeing it? So I said sure! I am really glad I did. I had a lot of fun and it was a fun story. Renee and I discussed some stuff after like the ending and some little things we noticed from it that could've been done a little different but it was great! I don't want to really say some of the things we think could have been better because I don't want to give the story away but overall it was good. I mean I bought the soundtrack so I had to of enjoyed myself! I may even pick up an Abba CD next time I am CD shopping if I see one!
Well I should be off to bed! But first I gotta clean it off... I put a bunch of stuff on it earlier that needs to be put away. So then I went to practice piano. I figured if I cleaned first I would neglect the practicing, so I thought if I practiced first I would still have to clean off my bed to sleep in it... but then when I was done practicing my sister was watching a movie and I sorta joined her, then dosed off to sleep. So then when I woke up I switched over my laundry and came to my room.... and of course I am online again and my bed is still a mess! But now I am even more so tired and so I will probably re-locate the mess to my chair and worry about it tomorrow after church! Ugh to me! I really hate having my room be messy and even more-so I hate when I don't make it a priority to clean it! I only have myself to blame! But what-ev! Goodnight!
