Playing the Piano in Church
Today was so scary. I had to play a piano solo in church, which I've never done before. I've played songs for the choir before, because I'm the ward choir piano player, but I've never done a piano solo before. Luckily, though I'm not sure if thats the right word, my eye was hurting and it took my mind off of playing the piano and I didn't really get nervous. I guess it was kind of a good thing, but thankfully my eye stopped hurting when I went up to go play. I didn't want everyone up there to see me crying for no reason. That would have been way embarrassing! But my eye felt better while I was playing. I think I played the song the best I've ever played it, and I hardly messed up. It seemed to go by really fast, too. Oh, and the song was "We'll Bring the World His Truth (Armies of Helaman)." Lots of people came up to me afterward and told me I did an amazing job. Also, lately I've been thinking of teaching piano lessons, and because of this, I think I might. I need a job anyways, and a lot of people were asking me and my mom if I taught piano, since there's no one really in our ward that teaches. I would have fun doing it too. I'm proud that I was able to accomplish something new today, even though I was scared.
