Watching Hibike! Euphonium religiously for the past two years, as well watching Kimiuso, rewatching Nodame Cantabile, and reading Piano no Mori, got me thinking about why I still haven’t gotten back to playing the piano. I must have stopped playing the piano, on a consistent basis, about five years ago, when I was a freshman […]
In terms of personal goals, the most important thing to me right now is to have a consistent schedule. Otherwise, I turn up a complete mess of to-dos and unfinished work. Take my laundry, for example. Sometimes I’m right on top of things: put them in the washer, put them in the dryer, fold them, […]
I’m probably the last person awake in this house right now.

I was supposed to be asleep about an hour ago. It’s hard, really, to change up your sleep schedule. My trip last year to Toronto was similarly rife with my refusal to adjust to a designated sleep schedule. I stayed up until 2 in the morning most nights since I never bothered to adjust to […]
My backpack is heavy. It reminds me of when I was in middle school, or even high school. I’d shuffle between classes with an oversized backpack, which held all of my textbooks. Of course I would eventually use them, but barely. And with great pain to my back. Or, I think so anyways. I don’t […]
