Unlcuky concert

Unlucky with the concert man. Just ignore the audience when you're up there

I don't play the piano anymor

I don't play the piano anymore (prefer the guitar) but at one of my concerts a couple of years ago, I'd been practising on an electric piano, so when I performed on a grand one the keys were so much harder to press, you could barely hear half the notes..

I find myself constantly reading your diary. You're an interesting person :D

One day we will start to fly and never look back..

I've been there.. Played the piano since I was 7. I used to like the concerts. Until I once had to play this inventio by bach. Lets just say I had no idea I could play that badly. I wass so nervous before going on I forgot everything.. So I skipped the concerts for a whole year.. was afraid of playing in front of ppl.. I've found that you can practice too little, but you can also practice too much. and thats when it really goes to hell..

Don't worry.. Just keep playing, and try to relax more the next time.

I think tradition is what really makes a religion. It's comforting to believe, it makes it easier, and the traditions are so familiar it's more comfortable.

Sorry to hear about your concert. Keep playing, there will still be good ones.

Are you hanging on to something useless just because you think it's beautiful?

Don't worry, it's not the end

Don't worry, it's not the end of the world! There will always be more concerts-maybe you should try deep breathing or something before you get on. (I've done concerts before too...I'm always abysmal because I'm so nervous.)

Man, you always have so much stuff to do, I'm envious:).

As for religion...

Belief in and reverence for a supernatural power or powers regarded as creator and governor of the universe.

A personal or institutionalized system grounded in such belief and worship.

The life or condition of a person in a religious order.

A set of beliefs, values, and practices based on the teachings of a spiritual leader.

A cause, principle, or activity pursued with zeal or conscientious devotion.

I'm way too vague, mystical, and intuitive to give a straight answer, so I give you the version:)


I’m not as sad as Doestoevsky,
I’m not as clever as Mark Twain,
I’ll only buy a book for the way it looks,
And I'll stick it on the shelf again.
-Belle and Sebastian
