Happy Happy Happy Happy!

I'm so happy right now (which you probably couldn't tell at all, based on my title)

You see, I play piano. I've been playing since I was 7. I have a very interesting relationship with it. It's like that best friend that you've known forever, and sometimes you drift apart and don't speak for months, but when you finally do get together again, it's like nothing has changed, only you're happy to be together again. That's how I feel.

I haven't played for months. Before my piano lessons ended for the summer, I practiced my lesson music a couple times a week (which is the bare minimum really; I'm so lazy), but I never played for fun. Like I never played any music that I love, or for the enjoyment. Honestly, I don't think I've enjoyed it for a whole year.

It's back though. It came back in this little reunion through a song known as "Let It Be" by the Beatles. I sat down today and played for the first time this summer, and I just felt so happy. I didn't want to get up until I learned the first page perfectly, and I did!

I'm thinking maybe I should try writing a song using my piano. I don't know if it'd work, because I've never written a song before, but I really want to try. I feel like that break I took from it really helped me realize a lot. I'm really so grateful to be able to play such an amazing instrument.


  1. Aww I'm so jealous! I'd love to be able to play a musical instrument! Being able to play the violin or piano would be amazing in my opinion :)

  2. This is just so sweet! Back in the day, I played piano, but then I got reeeeally lazy and never really got out of that state, but I'm so jealous that you can play! <3 And a great song too :) Hehe, let us know how it goes if you end up writing a song, that'd be awesome! <3 Hehe, awh, and also thank you for your comment, definitely made me feel better knowing that we've both gone through bad situations with friends :S Have a gooood night!

  3. omg! I didn't know that you play piano! That's awesome! Let it be is such a great song. I wish I could hear you play it. Hey! Maybe you can post of video of yourself playing it! :D

  4. Wow. I've always wanted to learn to play the piano and guitar (and, well, a lot of instruments), but I've never got around to it. It's so cool that I know somebody who does.

    And, as for the song, I say go for it! Write your heart out and see where it takes you. Start with the notes or start with the lyrics, whatever you like.

    Just have fun! And give it everything you have. Have a great time, and happy playing!

  5. I used to play the piano as a child but I never got to a really good standard - I hated reading music and always learnt the songs by ear, but that of course didn't help me progress all that much :P

    I used to really enjoy composing little pieces though - you should give it a go and show us your efforts!


Your comments are like cake to me. I can never get enough.
