January 2016 was so much better than January 2015 that I can't even. (Or odd.) I mean there was some hard stuff and sad stuff and Sunday was an emotional roller coaster, but I felt soooo much better than I did last year at this time! I know it has to do with my attitude, but also certain things that are different in my life this year, like having a clear goal/ambition. (Still don't know where I'm going to college cuz I still don't know where I'm moving...)
This month, I got to play piano in TWO concerts during the offering. That was really fun, and the people were sooo nice. That has been really fun, and I can't wait to do it again in a few weeks. I also realized that there's a very good chance I can go to a Southern Gospel Music camp this summer if God opens some doors. (Read: scholarships...) Here's me playing for the first concert.
I also set my graduation date for April 17. However, I'll still be going to school after that probably. Because I will probably still have work to do. And cuz I want to spend time with my friends because all my friends outside school do not live near me... :( I don't have to take English this semester because I tested out, and now I have a lot of study hall time to read, play chess, work on reports, and practice piano. So WIN!

Reading actually went well this month. I'm two books ahead of schedule according to Goodreads, which is how I plan to keep it :) I read about 2 books a weekish sort of not really. I got seven in all, so figure that out. I

Oh, and one more thing: I started a new blog Southwestern Gospel. It's more of a music blog, specifically for Southern Gospel. I just felt weird putting those posts here because I get the feeling that's not really my audience. Feel free to check it out! I'll still be blogging here every week, don't worry. (Here's a secret: A to Z is actually more of a priority than Southwestern Gospel at the moment ;) ) And I'll still put some piano stuff here, never fear. (I'm a poet and I didn't know it!)
And just for kicks, here's an arrangement I did this month. You can get the sheet music HERE. It's easier than my others, I promise :)
