One of my favourite ways to spend my mornings, playing the piano after waking up. Been practicing only the First Movement of Beethoven’s Pathetique Sonata and quite happy how it is slowly turning out. My tremolos are ten times better then when I first started out. My hands have grown accustomed to it and the fact that I am able to control my wrist movement a lot better and not get tired is definitely helping me increase my speed. I think I need to whip more discipline on myself in practicing piano especially since I’m not seeing my teacher for two months. Either she’ll do it, or I’ll do it. I think I’ll choose the latter.

The Blessedness of Possessing Nothing

God let the suffering old man go through with it up to the point where He knew there would be no retreat, and then forbade him to lay a hand upon the boy. To the wondering patriarch He now says in effect, “It’s all right, Abraham. I never intended that you should actually slay the lad. I only wanted to remove him from the temple of your heart that I might reign unchallenged there. I wanted to correct the perversion that existed in your love. Now you may have the boy, sound and well. Take him and go back to your tent. Now I know that thou fearest God, seeing that thou hast not withheld they son, thine only son, from Me.” Continue reading

What is better than sitting and talking with your best friend after cooking some comfort food to eat together? What is more awesome than sitting and putting your feet on the coffee table together only to find you and your best friend have the exact same pair of socks except yours in purple and hers in blue?
I love you Jenny.

I’ve got sunshine in my pockets

I was sitting in my Uncle’s Honda S200 with the roof down today and heard Natasha Bedingfield’s song came on the radio. It quickly reminded me how much I missed the feeling of some nice warm weather especially today. The breeze rushing through my hair and the sun beating down on me made me crave summer except until temperature rises over 30 and increasing humidity. Hands down it was a happy day especially without being tied to my desk for the entire day.

“Pocketful of Sunshine”

I got a pocket, got a pocketful of sunshine.
I got a love, and I know that it’s all mine.

Do what you want, but you’re never gonna break me.
Sticks and stones are never gonna shake me.

Take me away: A secret place.
A sweet escape: Take me away.
Take me away to better days.
Take me away: A higher place.

I got a pocket, got a pocketful of sunshine.
I got a love, and I know that it’s all mine.
Oh. Continue reading

Combo#1: Tucker’s Marketplace & Olympic Controversy

I just finished eating with my dad and brother at Tucker’s Marketplace after they decided to call me right after I was done at the gym. Awesome timing. I haven’t been there for a good 5 years now and I definitely appreciate that kind of food a lot better especially since I’m starting to cook more western food. Their chicken and bacon leek, and along with this potato type chowder was rich, tasteful and was not overly diluted with water like some other places. This pesto was nice, I always wondered what it would taste like since I’ve been eyeing this recipe for a while and wondered whether I should give it a try. I ended my meal with a nice waffle and vanilla ice cream on top, just the way I like it! Continue reading

During the last two weeks,

  • had an awesome extremely belated 17th birthday adventure from Ted.
  • during Ted’s plans I got a chance to take a picture and meet Evgeny Kissin, a Russian pianist. (Cries in a corner at Kissin’s awesomeness)
  • my adventure also happened to be my last day of fun so it was a good way to start off the hardcore studying month of april
  • been working hard and have consistently improved my work/study ethics
  • my schedule everyday has been as followed: wakeup, school, come home, snack, study, piano, study, dinner, piano, study, piano, study. It would explain why my fingers feel stiff and sore.
  • Continue reading
