I really need to get my shit together as far as practicing goes.

Tonight while practicing, I not only imagined the general criticism of The Thin Critical Man With Folded Arms, but imagined in detail an imaginary conversation about the Schubert, specifically about the tempo, specifically about how it's not fast enough, specifically about Janie or Johnny TigerStudentKid who achieved performance tempo after Just Two Weeks of Practice!, specifically a conversation in which it is pointed out that because I, an adult, cannot achieve performance tempo after Just Two Weeks of Practice!, it is a done deal that I will never be able to play this piece, and I will lose the audience two bars in. Damn! There goes my Carnegie Hall debut.
