"Why oh why didn't I take the BLUE pill?"

You shouldn't have taken the RED pill!

Tomorrow, I have only to be at the office by 8 p.m., so there will be plenty of time during the day. Therefore, I had planed to go to take the violin lesson early in the afternoon, but I won't. As my violin tutor has other plans at that time, she is not available for the lesson. I'm going to practice by myself anyway.

Key Resolve-the U.S. and South Korea joint military exercise has begun. I will be on duty from the day after tomorrow. Once again I am going to work on the night shift against my will. Just thinking of it makes me enervated.

Last Saturday, I bought several books including 「영어상식 99」 a book that my friend highly recommended. It really contains a lot of useful tips for English speaking.

When a warm breeze gently brushed my face, I felt that spring has come. These days the sun is still shinning when I leave the office. I can enjoy the soft evening sunlight for a while before get to the library. That alone is just enough to fill my heart with happiness.

I just couldn't have missed her recital. Of all concerts I have seen these days, Son's performance was the best. Every single touch on the keys overwhelmed audiences. With such virtuosic skill, she outfoxes most of her contemporaries. It seems that her heyday is beginning. I can't believe she is just my age! I'm pretty sure all the audiences in the concert hall shared the same feeling, a feeling of joyful anticipation that this young pianist before their eyes will become the piano giant in the near future.

A full review will be followed later!

Perfectly returned to the routine of daily life; I read the Analects of Confucius in the library, took the violin lesson, and exercised in the boxing gym as well. A new piece of music I'm going to practice is the Mozart's violin concerto no.5. My violin tutor had me practice only the first two rows of the music. These two rows are what I will be sticking to for the coming week.

Minor deviations I have done; didn't go to the library, skipped the violin practice and workout.

I had not known that it was a memorial concert of cardinal Kim Sou-hwan until I took and looked into the pamphlet. No wonder so many nuns were there.

The orchestra provided a variety of programmes from vocal musics to a magic show. It was fun to watch over all, but the performance was rather risible than touching. In the first place, their selections of music had not a single association with the purpose of the concert.

And especially the violinist who played the Wieniawski's concerto! As soon as she had come up to the stage, I remembered her. She was the main culprit of messing up the Bach's double concerto at the last concert and this time also made egregious mistakes. What a grand finale!

The Mini Concert is over. It was nothing more than a chance to rediscover how bad I am. Anyway I thank to my friends who came from far away to see this clumsy performance. I hope I can repay them with a better playing someday.

Yesterday, I went to see the musical Mamma Mia. A fellow who exercises with me at the same gym got me the ticket. I have known this guy since he registered in the boxing club. He weighed over 100kg at that time but he has lost more than 20kg so far.

Tomorrow I'm booked for another concert. A chamber orchestra where Yoo-hee belongs will perform. And coming sunday, my violin teacher's quintet will also have a concert. So I have to attend that, too.

초중딩들과 함께. 내 이름 뒤에만 아무 것도 안 써있네. ‘공군중위’라도 넣어달라고 할 걸 그랬나.

연습 중심 생활. 내가 생각하는 이상적인 연주의 수준을 100점이라고 하면, 연주 날까지 내가 도달할 수 있는 수준은 한 70점정도. 그리고 현재, 이미 도달 가능한 정점은 찍은 것 같다. 이 이상은 기초 실력의 한계가 있어서 연습한다고 나아질 것은 없어 보이고, 다만 과제는 연주 당일 날 내가 준비한 것을 얼마만큼이나 펼쳐 보일 수 있느냐 하는 것. 70점에 도달했다고 해도 그나마 반드시 70점짜리 연주를 해낼 수 있을 거란 보장은 어디에도 없다. 연주하다가 갑자기 멈춰버리기라도 하면 그냥 0점이 되고 마는 것.

반복 그리고 또 반복이다. 손끝에 굳은살이 돌아왔다. 이탈리아에서 하게 될 생활의 맛보기라고 생각지만, 가서는 지금보다도 훨씬 많이 연습해야겠지? 하지만 그렇게 보내는 1년도 나쁘진 않을 것 같다.
