Nothing particularly exciting to say (as per usual). But I was reading through my blog, and a couple of weeks ago I mentioned about playing the piano — does starting later in life mean that you have some form of ceiling as to how good you can get?
I didn’t know then, but I am beginning to suspect that – no, it doesn’t. The reason being, I’ve certainly improved over the past six weeks (or however long I’ve been practising). I’m sure that people who start earlier only have the advantage in that they get to practise more, it’s just something you do. So I’m fairly confident that with practise, I’ll get to the level where I’m adequate, even if I’m never really good!
One more piece of news — I applied for a job last night, a programming job in Felixstowe. I’ll update when I hear anything. To be honest, being unemployed is one of the toughest times to be going through — it really isn’t nice to always have no money. I can’t buy records or go down the pub or anything! Being a student means that you have to count pennies to an extent, but it’s nothing compared to having no money whatsoever.
So a job would be nice 🙂 I’ll keep you posted on that one.
And it’s less than a month now (in fact, quite substantially less) until my good friends Sarah and Jon get married! That’s a day I’m looking forward to 🙂
Ok, I think I’ve rambled on for long enough now. Later…
