Yesterday's piano lesson was pretty good. I have about a week's more work to do on
Arabesque. My teacher was also happy with what I can do with Spinning Song (although
it's still not yet up to tempo). She started me on a new piece called The Avalanche by
Stephen Heller. The piece involves a lot of hand crossing, which is what we spent a fair amount of
lesson time on.

I still sometimes wish I could speed up my learning. Part of it is because I sometimes feel guilty
about not spending more time looking for a job, or reviewing things in computer science I haven't
worked on in a long time. In reality, I spend more time on both of those things than practicing, so
I shouldn't feel bad about it.
