Fantasia no. 2 in D minor

This is a 18th century piece by Georg Philipp Telemann which I have been practicing for my Trinity, Grade 5 Piano exam.

Note: I haven't yet got the dynamics and the feel right so please bear with me :(

More about me - Assumptions

A lot of people, almost everybody, including my parents assume (or have assumed) a lot things about me which I am not.

  1. I was once (and fortunately still) assumed by a few to be a programming genius.
  2. Those who doubted my programming skills quickly assumed me to be a musical wizard .
  3. Even though I can barely sing, my mom has assumed that I have a good voice.
  4. My college friends think that I have a perfectly laid out plan for my future. I am clueless on what to do after getting up in the morning everyday.
  5. Just because I don't talk much people think I have a conceit personality.
  6. Just because I don't talk much people think I am a man of action ;)).
  7. My parents and even some of my relatives think that I could do well if I took up animation.

Well, that's all I can think of for now but I assume there could be more.

How did people come to these assumptions?

  1. I used to do a lot of c++ programming when I was in my 11th and 12th grade and for some time in the first year of college.
  2. I just know to play the keyboard and I can compose a little bit. Have had some formal training in western classical music and playing the piano.
  3. I sometimes practice singing when I am alone.
  4. As I don't do 'things' that are considered to be 'normal' for college boys I have been termed intelligent and according to them an intelligent guy always leads a well planned life.
  5. This ones funny. Its normal to consider an introvert to be diffident, but conceit? I am clueless.
  6. No comments :).
  7. I play a hell a lot of computer games, love cartoons, animax etc etc.

I certainly don't deny that I have interest in music or programming. What's my problem then? I am an extremely lazy guy. I strongly believe that high expectations would result in me having to put extra effort :( .

Fools garden - Lemon tree

I'm sitting here in a boring room.

It's just another rainy Sunday afternoon.

I'm waisting my time, I got nothing to do.

I'm hanging around, I'm waiting for you.

But nothing ever happens, and I wonder.



Its not exactly a rainy sunday afternoon, but...
