I already put this on Facebook as an exercise in self-humiliation. I mean confidence.
It's just tiny and it's only the good part. But it's my way of saying that, officially, I'm going back to school in the fall. I know I've talked about it and maybe even said I was going to, but this time I mean it. I filled out a FAFSA and everything. Looks like I have a scholarship too.
Chopin beat me, as a early-admission freshman in college. That's right, at the ripe old age of 17, I decided I would never be good enough to be a pianist.
But you know what?
I'm no longer too proud to go to community college.
I'm okay with not being the Most Amazing Pianist They've Ever Seen.
(Well, I do have some performance anxiety, but...that's a different issue)
I'm just here to learn and to love the process.
I am not as good as I used to be, but I didn't believe I was any good back then.
Hooray for second chances.
