I kind of agree with Noah here, Emily. You could have learned half of Chopin's output in the time it took you to write this thing ;). Prioritize!

I think I could learn at least a few preludes in the time it would take me to come up with a definite answer...

I too, find that most of my time is wasted on PianoStreet..... sigh

But now I know I'm not the only nerd who knows the opus number to practically every piece... In my case, op. 15, op. 28, op. 30, op. 56, op.  op. 10 and op. 25 (way OP though)
