I'm eating chinese take out right now with my brother. I had to get online because I was annoying him with constant talk of my NY trip. Which I could've talked about on here but strangly now I don't feel like talking about it, like I spent the energy already. A bit sleepy, but content at the moment.
Only the positive!

Its apparently suitable for my level of guitar playing, but I don't get it. Even the Bach Allemande (which is the second easiest piece I'm playing) is twice as difficult!
Today, I found out that I won January's MVP ("Most Valuable Player") at the hotel I work at. It's a sort of "employee of the month" thing for just the hotel (each Ameristar property does a "team member of the month" award for the entire property). That felt so good, since I've only had a job for four months. The prize included a free one-night hotel stay and a $25 food voucher. Later that night, though, I accidentally messed up someone's show ticket sale pretty bad. They wanted table #70, but I accidentally charged them for booth #20. Since I'm unable to change seating once the tickets are sold and my manager had gone home for the evening, I had to explain to them that moving to table #70 (and fixing my mistake) would require a separate charge, and that refunding them for the tickets at booth #20 would take several days if we could do it at all (I gave them about a 90% chance of success). Thankfully, they were understanding (the one paying for the tickets works at a bank), I sold them the extra tickets and filled out the ticket refund request form to be passed on to my manager in the morning, and they left satisfied.

I'm looking for a hundred dolla' check I have misplaced and can not afford to not find.
I get to feel cool because I'm listening to 21st century music and am composing piano pieces that avoid tonal centers tritones, augmented chords and such, and prevent from sounding like Scriabin with rhythms and such...
'Cello lesson at 3:15, I should probably get practicing.
