I. .. its valentines day! *:･｡,☆ﾟ’･:*:･｡,ヽ(・∀・)人(・∀・)ﾉ ,｡･:*:･ﾟ’☆,｡･:* tbh, im actually way more excited for my impending 4-day weekend due to presidents day. my valentines day planz are yet in the incipient stages of gestation .. neither of us really knows how its supposed to go, lol.
i think it goes without saying that the best part of today is the cornucopia of parody valentines that the internet is overflowing with. an old classic:
II. i received a dual anniversary/valentines day gift of a yamaha digital piano. ( ＾～＾) full 88 keys, & the sound is just so poignantly beautiful, even better than the real analog piano at my parent’s house. i love it so much. ever since, ive been butchering various final fantasy songs ad infinitum .. because apparently, after 10 years of my childhood spent being forced to learn piano at gunpoint, the only music im really interested in playing is from the vidya.
the one song ive been focusing on is final fantasy xii’s eruyt village. ive got the treble & bass parts down individually, but combining them is proving to be a pickle. D: timing and rhythm have always been the most challenging aspects of music for me.
III. more final fantasy xi updates– got my whm to level 50 finally. there was actually a touch of party drama last night lol, people being uncooperative, abusing leader privileges, etc.
