Back to the Piano

Ellen Von Unwerth for Vogue 2011

Having just graduated from college last December (!!!), and with almost a two month break before starting my full-time job, I've had plenty of free time on my hands to relax and reflect. I know it sounds great (it is, kinda), but I get bored really easily and having to deal with a personal relationship issue lately has not made the situation any better.

One of the things I've picked up again to fill my time with is playing the piano. I haven't played for fun in the longest time and only recently started playing again for my church. My little brother is taking piano lessons and my parents recently got a keyboard with weighted keys. So he, my sis, and I now fight over the keyboard. Just kidding! Or not..

If you haven't watched Pride and Prejudice starring Keira Knightley, you totally should! It's one of my favorite movies and I love love love the soundtrack. I've been practicing one of the pieces - Dawn by Dario Marianelli and after playing it for I don't know how many times, I am now decent at three-fifths of the song :P. It sounds so beautiful, though, and it makes me feel all Elizabeth Bennet-like.

Wish me luck in finishing the piece soon!
