It's April 2004 and I couldn't care if I was working on any piece.  Right now, I'd rather play scales, arpeggios, et al than learn a piece.  This is mostly to improve my technical abilities so I can play the pieces I'd like to play in December 2004.  Also hoping that my sight reading will improve.

It's just hitting the right notes at the right time.  How hard is that?

Right now I'm on Gottschalk....

1. Le Banjo  
2. L' Union  

Not sure....possibly Bamboula after the other two. Le Banjo is pretty simple...just working at getting it up to speed. L' Union slightly more demanding, wonderful piece!  Funny, since I've discovered Gottschalk's music, I can't seem to get away from it.

Right now, number one priority for me is getting Czerny Op. 740 no. 2 arpeggio study up to a disturbingly fast speed. This is for an exam on June 7.
Apart from that:
Beethoven Sonata  op. 10 no. 1
Debussy Passepied from Suite Bergamasque
Bach Sinfonia from Partita 2
And just some various Chopin and Liszt stuff for next year.
