March has come and gone with not a lot happening. Apart from a lot of snow. I'm tired of snow and i'm tired of rain, despite the latter not being around that often. And i don't want it to be. I love shorts and flip flop weather and it really has been a long wait to finally get steady warm weather.
First week back after break and it's been pretty good. Nothing exciting has happened (apart from my classes on Thursday and Friday being cancelled, yayyy), but I'd rather not be too bogged down. I'm allowed to play one of my favorite songs from a video game in my piano class which is pretty cool.
The class is going ok. It's still pretty hard for me as the piano really isn't something I ever thought I'd play nor did I ever want to play. It's just never been an instrument that really spoke to me. There are all those specific things you have to do with it; sit a specific distance away from the piano, wrists have to be up, fingers curled, you have to use pecific fingers for specific notes, and on, and on.
I like the unpredictability of playing the drums. I like feeling of the drumsticks between my fingers and how you can play one song in different ways. Sure, you can transpose in piano, and do variations, but I feel like you're still essentially playing the same thing over and over again.
Nothing against piano players. I have to give you props for what you can do. I've only gotten a glimpse of just how much work goes into being an exceptional piano player. Just doing transpositions and learning how to play with two hands at one time, reading off a lead sheet, and and and. I just get incredibly frustrated with it at times. But, I'm still forging on.
I can see the school year coming to an end, but I don't know how I feel about it. I just keep taking things one day at a time. Plus, I have my sisters around, so there's never really any time for me stress in between our fits of laughter.
April Fools' Day was pretty uneventful. That's normally a day I don't really take much stock in. On the one hand, I take everything with a grain of salt that day apart from just refusing to believe anything people say at times. On the other, I can never really think of great pranks to do.
When I was younger, I used to take worms and stick them in Pringles cans, never knowing that salt actually hurt and/or killed them. And then in sometimes, I'd swap out the cream for toothpaste, but that always back fired because people could smell the mint.
But, the one prank I love and don't care if it is real or not is how Google Maps has this Pokemon Master game going on. A fake job position goes to whoever can catch all the Pokemon in the world. From what I've seen it's a pretty cool little app; I haven't figured out how to work it, yet. It'll probably be much easier to catch the Pokemon from that than in the actual games.
I hope you're all doing well.
