I'm so happy today. Like so very totally very happy.
Well, cos I've always believed that I'm horrible at music. Used to... that is.
For my grade 5 piano practical, I received 101/150... I just passed... ><
And, I didn't do too well on my grade 5 theory...;(
So, for my grade 6 piano practical, I steeled my will and vowed to try harder.
The process was tedious, depressing, and so not-fun... but now, thinking about it, it was SOOOOO worth it...
I spent hours banging away at the piano, my fingers tripping over each other, hitting a wrong note every so often...
Staring defiantly at the little black notes on the score and wishing they weren't so hard to play...
Sometimes, I would let out a scream of frustration, slamming my hands on the piano, and stalk off...
But I gritted my teeth and pulled through...
On the day of the exam, I was soooooo nervous... >~<
I remember walking into the exam room and thinking "im gonna die... im gonna die"...
But I was brave and did what I needed to do...
A few weeks ago, while at a friend's house, I received an SMS from my mom... it read,
"Piano grade 6 score 135 distinction."
I was like... O.o wad?!
Then, i died of happiness... <3
That evening, my family went for a celebratory dinner... SUBWAY!!!! WOOT WOOT!!! <3
THANK YOU, MOM AND DAD, FOR BELIEVEING IN ME!!!
THANK YOU, MS. STEF, FOR NOT GIVING UP ON ME!!! >...<
I couldn't have done it without you people!!!
THANK YOU, GOD, FOR THE STRENGTH, COURAGE, DILIGENCE... EVERYTHING!!!
