Hey errrbody! It’s that time of the year again where you make resolutions that sound pretty in a list, impress people, and become forgotten by the end of the month!
kidding. I’ve promised myself to follow through with a couple of things because some habits got to change or otherwise I’m going to kill myself a little faster.
1. No consumption of chips (the actual potato is okay to eat though and tortilla bread). Now you know what kind of chips I enjoy..
2. No binge eating!
3. No munching on snacks or food-related items after EIGHT THIRTY PM but consumption of liquid-like items are acceptable
4. No more soda until Spring break! :/
5. Aim to burn calories twice a week by doing cardio exercises in 30-minute sessions (I aim to look like Jessica Alba. haha)
6. Practice with meaning and not just for time fillers (heh)
7. Save up for a Domo and Mashimaro plushie
I think this is all. I pray I keep these resolutions at least till the end of this semester..
This is not a dramatic post about emotions, experiences, and feelings..
I’ve only come to proclaim that I .. enjoy Mozart. I love him! Talk to me a couple years back and you’ll get a totally different response but now, the more I play him, the more intrigued I get. I’m more of a twentieth century/contemporary/romantic genre type of pianist but I am appreciating him much more. The phrasings, the articulation and the physical approach used to play his music haven’t been mastered yet by me but I’m finding new ways to have better control over my technique. People bash on Mozart because he’s quite the trickster. Plain and simple his music looks but playing him with an acceptable and exceptional interpretation proves to be quite difficult.
I attest to the fact that time does change someone because it certainly changed me.
First Try… (by Thomas Ferguson)
We are called to be a godly people who think, feel, and act in harmony with the principles of heaven. For the Spirit to re-create in us the character of our Lord we involve ourselves only in those things which will produce Christlike purity, health, and joy in our lives. This means that our amusement and entertainment should meet the highest standards of Christian taste and beauty. While recognizing cultural differences, our dress is to be simple, modest, and neat, befitting those whose true beauty does not consist of outward adornment but in the imperishable ornament of a gentle and quiet spirit. It also means that because our bodies are the temples of the Holy Spirit, we are to care for them intelligently. Along with adequate exercise and rest, we are to adopt the most healthful diet possible and abstain from the unclean foods identified in the Scriptures. Since alcoholic beverages, tobacco, and the irresponsible use of drugs and narcotics are harmful to our bodies, we are to abstain from them as well. Instead, we are to engage in whatever brings our thoughts and bodies into the discipline of Christ, who desires our wholesomeness, joy, and goodness. (Rom. 12:1, 2; 1 John 2:6; Eph. 5:1-21; Phil. 4:8; 2 Cor. 10:5; 6:14–7:1; 1 Peter 3:1-4; 1 Cor. 6:19, 20; 10:31; Lev. 11:1-47; 3 John 2.)
It was fifty years ago today that Bob Dylan had his first recording session at Columbia Records. Dylan was backup harmonica for folk singer Caroline Hester — It was shortly after that Dylan was offered his own deal with Columbia.

In April, Dotan Negrin started a journey to develop himself as a pianist. He left New York with his dog, Brando, his upright piano, and a plan to cross the country and perform in improbable public places along the way. Today, Dotan finds a deeper meaning in his experiences. “My mission is to inspire people to create unique projects like this, to pursue their passions. I believe anyone can do anything if they have enough passion,” he says.
