After quitting music school, I wanted to keep playing piano and learning more songs. I also want to share it with people, and keep a audio-visual record of the reperotoire I’ve learned. I decided to film 2 piano videos a week due every Wednesday. Yup, that’s learning 2 new songs a week. It’s very […]Read More Filming Piano Videos – First Take!
Since I started sharing more about my piano progress, I get a lot of “follow your passion” talk. The comments to “follow your passion” are supposed to be supportive, and I understand where these people are coming from. But something about it seems off to me… I’m going to deconstruct where this saying comes from. […]Read More Why I’m done with the saying “follow your passion”
I imagine my days like a sculpture, taking out what is not serving me. Taking out people who aren’t worth my time, things that are distracting like iphones, and jobs that are a waste of time.

This weekend my Mom and I had the best live music experience of our lives, not an exaggeration. We ventured to New York City to see two great pianists: Martha Argerich and Andras Schiff. I’ve wanted to see Martha Argerich in concert after listening to her interpretations for a couple of years. She rarely comes […]Read More Best Concerts of My Life
I decided to change up my daily routine. I was on my last 30 pages of “Upstream”, so after class I checked out SMU’s literature selection to pick up my next read. I went to the library stacks for the first time in search of nothing in particular, hoping that a book will reach out […]Read More Rescuing Books
Like a girl scout collects badges, I have about four or more undisclosed memories on my shoulder like a badge, I am a woman. And I’m bound to get more over my lifetime. They’re nothing to be proud of. No matter how deep I hide them, I can go back to them instantly. They hide […]Read More Bad Memories.
I like dealing with money, I like saving and making it, doesn’t everyone? Let’s be honest. I didn’t want to shy away from talking about money.
