A New Leaf Turns

In life, change is inevitable...

Lately, I have found absolution. At least, that's what I have likened the new changes I could see in myself.

I've braved new challenges; opened a bank account that I actually use, opened another education fund by myself, taught 10 to 12-year-old children in 4 subjects, learned how to drive a manual car...

There's so much you can do in so little time.

Then there's that waning addiction towards japanese anime and fanfiction. Don't get me wrong, I still like them, just not as crazy as I used to.

On the other hand, I still hadn't made a dent on Liszt's La Campanella. I know I'm supposed to practice the piece but I've been sidetracked by other endeavours, namely the pieces: Musette by Mozart, Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven, Canon in D by Pachalbel, An American Tail Theme Song (my staple, I'm afraid), Pomp and Circumstance by Edward Elgar and a few Chopin works.

Suffice to say I'll have to start back from the beginning if I were to successfully play La Campanella - and avoiding note omission where possible, of course.

Besides that, there's the fact that SPM results will be announced in mid-March. I'm so nervous and scared I could vomit. At least I have done my university and college applications already. If not, I'd be in a world of trouble.

In the meantime, I'll use the time in my hands to better myself before furthering my studies. I'm sure something worth doing will come. After all, take life by the moment, take the moment as if you are living a lifetime. Take a lifetime as if there is no tomorrow. In other words, God is always your guide for tomorrow might be the day God decides to call you. Keep in mind that always do good today before your chance to do good tomorrow is taken away.

That's a piece of wisdom for now.

For the time being, it'll do.

This is me, signing out for the night.
