I snapped one of the strings on my violin while trying to tune it. I also cut my finger on another of my strings, and dropped four pencils into my grand piano and hurt the same hand trying to get them out. So far, today has been terrible...

A big spider crawled up my arm while I was in bed, in the middle of the night last night  :-\ :'( :'(

It wasn't *quite* as bad as I imagined it would be, but it was still not really that cool.

That's terrifying. I'm extremely terrified of spiders. Now I'm scared of finding a tarantula in my bed... Ugh.

Okay so first, I bought this GoodWood wooden bowtie, and it looks pretty cool.  I'm gonna wear it to school tomorrow.


After that, my piano teacher canceled piano lessons!  I don't know whether or not to be happy or sad.   :) :( :'( :-\


Later on that day, I went to Wendy's with my friend, and I had my Rubik's cube out on me.  So this one guy was like...

Him:  hey man, can you solve it?

Me:  25 second average

Him:  no way dude you're lying!

Me:  I'll make you a deal: if I can solve it in 25 seconds or under, then you buy me a mean

Him: two dollars

Me:  sure!

So he scrambles it and I solve it in 22 seconds...  He felt soooooooooooooooooo salty!!!!!!!!!!!!  Then I did the same thing with the peope who work at Wendy's and I got two sandwiches and a frosted for free!  Swag in the freaking bag man!!!!!!




Later on that day, I was skating home Down the street, and I hit a rock and Slammed soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo hard!!!!!!!!!!  I was in the middle of the intersection in front of EVERYONE and I felt sooooooooooooooooooooooooo salty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I fell down so freaking hard from that itty bitty tiny stupid rock!  What the freaking heck?!?!?!

Bowties are nice. Not sure about wooden ones though.

Why does everyone think Rubiks cubes are impossible? I can solve one in 17 seconds on average (I do have long, flexible fingers though, so that gives me an advantage), and the people at the local string instrument shop gave me a new chin rest and E string for my violin for free last week because I could solve their scrambled Rubiks cube that they couldn't solve. Although I think that was partially because I was able to play Mozart's violin concerto in G Major, K. 216, without the E string.

Anyway, what is "feeling salty"?

I saw a tarantula trying to get in through the bathroom window today. It was terrifying. Thankfully the windows are closed and firmly locked. And the doors are fitted with "draft guards" that I actually use to keep out spiders.

One of the multiple indicators of the presence of the user rachmaninoff_forever on this forum.

Here are a couple more:

- "I FREAKING LOVE VALENTINA LISITSA[insert as many exclamation points as necessary to annoy other people]"
- "WHAT THE FREAKING HECK?"
- "j_menz is a professional pianist."

There are probably a multitude more, but I'm surprised that I can't think of them right now.

Dude I freaking learn the rest of the OLL and F2L algorithms.  I really want to get my average blow 15 seconds but I haven't found the time to practice.  And I gotta buy a new Dayan Zanchi.  I tried lubricating the one I have and it freaking backfired!!!  Now it's extra slow and sticky and it wears down on my freaking time.

He really is a professional pianist.  Like I'm nor joking. 

He told me that he was some time ago in a personal message, but whenever we're talking on the actual forum, he denies it!

It's just like my music theory teacher.  Whenever we're alone, he says that he plays the piano, but when we're in front of other people, he freaking denies it!  What the heck?!?!

OK then. I thought I saw him say he wasn't a professional pianist in a post somewhere in Piano Forum. However, I think you told me once that he was a professional pianist and not to let him "deceive me".

Your music theory teacher reminds me of my violin teacher. She plays the cello and the piano as well, and her students have seen her play both, but in public she denies her ability to play piano. Whenever I'm there and she is being asked to play the piano by someone else, she always says she can't and asks me to play my latest Debussy prelude or something.

Incidentally, I think the wooden bowtie was more impressive than my playing.

Saw Anton Kuerti perform Mozart's Sonata in Am, Beethoven Op. 111, and the Schubert Sonata in B-Flat. The Schubert was absolutely amazing in every way! I'll have to get his recording of it. I talked to him afterwards and I got the feeling he wasn't too happy with his performance, but I wonder if anyone ever really is?  :P Also got a signed CD of him playing Beethoven 101 and 106. His  Op. 101 might just be my new favorite performance of it  :)

I played live stream for Wolfi!  It was really fun :).

You didn't record it so we couldn't watch?



Just now someone sent me an anonymous message on face saying that they have been crushing on me ever since they met me.

I've narrowed it down to a few people.  I'm gonna start throwing newspapers and pictures on my wall and connect them with yarn, and get my smoking pipe and monocle.  Gotta get to work.  *cracks neck*

But to be for real, someone's probably just trying to mess with me.

EDIT:

Nevermnd, I found out who it is.

I should be on freaking Anonymous!

EDIT:

Dang I got the wrong freaking person!!!

Hahahahahahahahhaa I had the best freaking audition ever!!!

He let me play all of my pieces in whatever order I wanted, then we talked a bit and did some sight-reading that I could actually do.

Then we did some jamming together it was sooooooo fun!!!  And it turns out that he likes Valentina Lisitsa and Rachmaninoff, so we're like freaking best friends!!!

And now he wants me to come down again sometime for a free lesson!!!

There were supposed to be two other teachers there, but one was like giving birth and the other one was like sick so it was just me and him.

I had a weird dream. I dreamed that I was asked to perform in an all Chopin recital, but I freaked out because I know that I suck. Then I looked in the mirror and found out that I was Evgeny Kissin. Everything went well from there. I remember playing the Revolutionary Etude, and then everything else was a blur.

I took the SAT this morning. I feel pretty good. Hopefully I'll achieve my goal of a 2100 (which is quite a stretch, considering my unpleasant experiences taking the less popular ACT).

Today I was throwing away old stuff from the basement and found a box with really old papers and there were also some old certificates and stuff...and I found a certificate from piano lessons dated 13.4.1978...must have been my last year because we moved that year. It says I behaved well  ;D

Anyway it had the name of the teacher so I googled and actually found out that she is not only a piano teacher, but has also composed a lot of songs...

Thought I spilled something, but turned out to be a false alarm. Oh well, reshuffle a few deckchairs and back to business.
