Light, darkness, hearts and all that gig.  
I just finished playing Kingdom Hearts for the nth time today. What can I say? I just can't get enough of it. But I always get frustrated at the ending -- why didn't he jump into that platform where Kairi was? Sora, you derp. But I still like you. :3

Anyway.
You know what I've always wanted to do? Well, watching the Distant Worlds concert is one thing and travelling around the world is another one, but there are more. See, I have this long list written on my journal -- it's about the stuff I want to do before I die or have amnesia. And fully learn how to play piano is one of them. 
I'm always amazed by those who can play piano so nicely, so expressively, so smoothly... that it made me want to be like them, too. I have this friend -- or classmate, to be exact -- who's really good at it. She performed Besaid Island (from Final Fantasy X) on prom night several days ago. I was absolutely... stunned. Dazed. Astonished. Awed. Hell, I could write more synonyms to express the indescribable feeling I had. I simply had to learn how to play piano. I could play To Zanarkand (again, from Final Fantasy X. That game is full of musical wonders, you know), but when I play it, it never sounds as amazing as I thought it would. I wanted to convey my feelings into something as beautiful as that piece I heard that night.
I told my mom about this, and she said she wanted to help me find a piano teacher that would come to our house -- since I'm a lazy ass when it comes to going to places and my parents are continuously over-protective of me. But, the problem we are currently facing is the price and service. Most of the piano lessons are expensive these days, and the lessons would only last for 30 minutes or 1 hour. Plus, some of the teachers would only come once a week. What a drag.
I'll try asking that friend of mine about her music lessons someday. Mm-hmm.

It's true that music lessons are typically pretty overpriced, but generally those who teach it as their career are really experienced and knowledgeable. The voice coach that I worked with for several years had her phd in music theory and had been in 100+ operas in her young life. I think it was worth the price. Good luck finding a piano teacher!

I wish the lessons would last longer, though -- maybe I'm just too eager. But, you do have a point there! I just hope to find a really good teacher with extreme patience haha. Thanks!
