There’s nothing quite like seeing an advert you replied to – and got no response – has been reposted. Trying to decide whether to apply again is exquisite.
Another wonderful experience is practising an excerpt to making-significant-progress accuracy at what seems a reasonable speed – then checking the metronome marking and finding it’s much, much faster.
Or having so many things you want to practise that your left hand actually starts seizing up because you haven’t played at that intensity for about a decade.
First-world problems, true. But they still demand a lot to keep going through them (almost as much as sheer absence of anyone apparently looking for what you think you have to offer right now!). Here’s hoping for perseverance, or maybe – just maybe – for a few signs of results. That would be nice.
