I've been playing the piano since I was six. I love playing piano. I placed second in two piano competitions. So I always wonder why I barely know anyone who plays the piano, or at least, seriously. 
 People think piano is boring and difficult. But that's like anything else! You can't give up just because starting is slow.

The only things I don't like is practicing for an hour a day and not being able to take my piano on trips with me. 

I'm practicing four pieces now-

This one is my favorite.


I also play this one.

What instruments do you play?

I have a cold. I don't think I'll post from Christmas Day-New Years day.


  1. I also play the piano, although I haven't been playing for nearly as long as you have. I play while the offering is being passed around my church usually on Sunday nights. Those songs that you posted are very pretty, and terrifyingly complicated. :-D

    -Barriss :-D

  2. I've played violin for like, five years. And I love it so so much :)

    Maybe we should get together and throw a piano-violin concert... :P

    Hope you get better soon, girlfriend <3 And I like the blog design ;)

  3. I like your blog design. :D

    I've been playing piano for about 5 years, but we no longer have a teacher because no one in this podunk town offers lessons. ;-;
    I'm trying to keep playing regularly, but its hard because I never have time.

  4. I used to take violin. I didn't quit taking. We just couldn't find another teacher for me. The first one was awful, the second I couldn't take from anymore, the third moved away, and the forth was awful. After the forth, we didn't have much to choose from. There aren't many violin teahers here. =P I was really good at it too. I was first chair. (Not to brag or anything. ;D) I haven't played in so long that I'd have to really work hard to catch back up. I have considered taking it up again, but the program we would use is expensive. I want to be sure before I take it again.

  5. I play violin too!!! I also play the viola. I like both, but right now I'm playing the viola in orchestra, and I'm one of two violists. Yay Leia, First Chair!!!!!!! I'm Principal Viola in my Orchestra, and I've only been playing the viola for around six months!!!! Violin is more competitive in Orchestra, but I still play it by myself. I have been playing it for eight years now. I have alot of experience with the Violin, and I know alot more songs. That's so cool that you play piano, Amaranthine, my cousin and my sister play, and I think it's a cool instrument. Not boring at all!!
    BTW, I have a cold too. I'm just getting over it. I think that this is the first year I'm sick at Christmas.

my fangirl obsessions go in cycles...this week, it's totally Heroes of Olympus/Percy Jackson(again)

There's this amazing artist on deviantart...burdge-bug...who does AMAZING Percy Jackson, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Maximum Ride, and even HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE fanart. Now, we need to get her to read Artemis Fowl...XD.

Anyways, here are some of my favorites of hers.

I kind of want to pull a Ms. Black and blast Jason right off the tapestry. There's some speculation to whether or not Annabeth will be on the Argo II. I kind of don't want her to be, so Nico can join instead. Then again, if Nico is already in Rome(as speculated at the end of Neptune) there's still room.  GAH RR WHY MUST YOU TORMENT US SO

love this scene...Senatus Populusque Romanus FTW.

Which do you think is cooler? Camp Half Blood or Camp Jupiter? Camp Jupiter definitely has a more efficient way of doing things(separating by cohort instead of parentage, sending large groups instead o…

Ciel Phantomhive vs. Artemis Fowl

Don't laugh. XD
The similarities between the two characters are so distinct and obvious that comparison is inevitable for anyone who's read/watched both series. I seriously thought when I first noticed Black Butler(more popularly referred to as Kuroshitsuji) that it was literally an anime adaption of Artemis Fowl.  Other people have read Artemis Fowl and thought "CIEL HAS A CLONE??!?"
So I thought I'd outline some of the differences and analyze who would win. XD
Appearance:  This is the first similarity, and one of the most major, because if they didn't look so darn alike I don't think the comparison would have been as striking. The above picture of Artemis is a fanart, because there aren't really any good pictures of Artemis, and the manga style makes it more obvious. They are both from the British Isles and have black hair and blue eyes. Both of them lose/change/switch an eye resulting in two different colors. 
Circumstance: They both s…

updates on life(aka excuses to post tumblr gifs)

If I had to describe my life in one word right now, it'd be cold. Brr.

Let's see..what's happening?

I got my back bend kickover from le ground in acro. It's awesome. :) I never thought I'd be able to do it XD

Of course, it's not with straight legs(yet). And I don't hit my splits in the middle. Come to think of it, it's actually sort of a back flop-over.

I read Skeleton Key and Eagle Strike(next two Alex Rider books) last night. The series has gotten better, but it still has the same problems. Just like Suzanne Collins makes the simplest events seem chilling and scary, the numerous random deaths in Alex Rider are just like "meh...whatever."

They all still have similar plots. Such as:

1. The book opens with some sort of mysterious circumstance. Usually an assasination or an exchange where one of the members gets stabbed in the back(sometimes literal, sometimes not) and killed. Either way, someone usually dies.
2. Alex Rider is hanging out drinkin…
