Determination Is The Key

Usually being a beginner to the world of blogging, I bypass the daily prompts.

Today the suggested prompt word ‘harmonize’ sparked interest. It’s a word I’ve become used to hearing the past few months since resuming piano lessons two months ago.

Although away from the music instrumental world for a period of time, I returned with a passion fueled with desire to learn more and complete both of my Adult All-In-One Course Level 1 books.

Previously I had gone off course when I requested to learn certain artists’ tunes and of course I can’t forget those beautiful Christmas carols.

I chose without the instructor’s request to review the manual page by page starting with Page 1. This extra-curricular activity already paid off in the short term when this past week I mastered quite a difficult piece over a two-week period.

The instructor’s smile and input were a most heartwarming reward for all the effort I’d  put into self-discipline practice.

Harmony in piano is defined as playing notes together. It accompanies melody which is made up of notes played separately. I attained my goal to play both hands together in perfect harmony.

This senior citizen is quite pleased with herself and looking forward to the next challenge amidst the 30 pages shy of completion of that first level book.

In life one is never too old to learn.

Today’s word prompt: looking

The past few days I’ve been looking for opportunities to supplement

my income. 

I was flabbergasted when I read about the success of a 19-year-old

who currently is earning big bucks from a crafts business she started 

little over a year ago.

Yes, twas hard for me to comprehend since during my tenure of life  

I’d dabbled in the same Hobbie. 

Bravo to the young lady from the UK!!

Me? I shall continue looking and conduct research in hopes of a

last chance at success.

Student’s Academic Performance

Three R’s education . . .

Reading, writing, ‘rithemetic

Three basic skills taught in schools.

Modern technology allows a parent

access to their child’s performance two

different methods ~ hand-held card plus

view report online.

Once upon a time students with poor

grades in order to avoid punishment

would sign a parent’s name to the back

of their report cards.

Remember when:

Face morphing ~ Coffee Please

l.likee.video/v/27Xolg

Hello . . .
Trial and error – sooo fun (LOL)
I shall return following breakfast.
Think ‘trial (OK) ~ transfer ‘error’

Explanation ~ determination ~ key

Cell phone app fun much
Video creator, fan
Enjoyment hobbie
Supporter family, friends
Amazing experience

Via invitation I joined the app five years ago.
Fan to creator, another invite ~ should I bother?
Yesterday I listened words ‘you can do it’ vocal insta-message.

Do I wish to livestream? Uncertain.

Already have more things to do and not enough time to do them.

Explanation video ‘face morphing‘:

I transferred a picture of a bit younger me to a different app.
Then the transformation – future – present – past (similar to
conjugation of a verb in reverse tenses).

This morn was chock full of shock sensations 1-2-3.

First, I see the strong resemblance of younger self to my
talented’ youngest granddaughter.

Second, I opted to transfer the face morph video here
and it landed in the title bar. Oops!

Third, the apartment complex’s fire alarm sounded
at 8:30 a.m.

The old me, prior to current self-love journey, would
have become irritated; new me, endured and laughed.

Progress!!

Kids’ Choices ~ Junk Food

Middle school – grades 5 – 8

Pre-teens often prefer to purchase their lunch.

Mom’s bagged lunch days behind them, feeling

a tad grownup, students face a new challenge with

regard to healthy food choices.

Reflecting back on days when my children were

given lunch money junk food ranked high in their

nourishment selections.

Daily the school cafeteria’s well-balanced meals

took a backseat to pizza, fries, ice cream bars and

vending machine options.

Today I was happy to read that my state is one of

four that has banned junk food in schools.

It’s about time.

A high percent of today’s youth classifies obese.

Hopefully this ban will aid in the improvement

of their health.
