Watching Tusk (2014).

Teaching piano lessons at Music Makers. I always seem to have trouble with my 3:30 lesson, Thomas. He has such a hard time focusing. And I, as a teacher, am not one to let anything slide. If any of my students make a mistake we spend extra time with the scale, exercise, or song until it is corrected. The problem with Thomas is he's kind of scatter brained. Today we spent the whole 30-minute session on the C major scale. He's actually a very smart and talented kid but just has a hard time concentrating. I'm only stern when necessary but I wonder if I softened up a little with students like him we could be more productive.

I scoop up Ana from the house and go to the Rec. I spend the majority of my time in the gym working it on the basketball courts. Pick-up game after pick-up game.


On the drive home I express my concerns about my lesson today to Ana.

Me: "The problem with me is I don't let things slide!"

Ana: "You just want to make every nook and cranny better in people."

Ana makes dinner for us this time: Lentils with Onions, Broccoli, Carrots, and Brown Rice.

Watching Kevin Smith's ridiculous comedy horror flick Tusk (2014).
