I had my employee and compensation review today. One percent raise.

On the other hand, it felt pretty fair, in that I've not been as diligent and as focused as I should be. Or at least, could be.

The upcoming stuff will be better at engaging my interest.

Piano lesson today. It's really nice to get there at five thirty and have the sun up, and get done at six thirty and still have the sun up.

A-minor scale, E-minor scale, and B-minor scale. Every time I think I have the fingering down, and start superfocusing on clarity, my fingertips trip. Crud. Well, it can only get better.

Still working on the Bartók and the Mozart. The first is a brutal exercise of counting, phrasing, and accents. The second is a tough exercise is long intervals, that have to be hit fast, no looking at my hands.
