Well, not five minutes ago I finished practicing piano. I haven't had the time, or energy, to do so in days. It's awfully frustrating. Work has been stealing my soul. I'd like it not to because I enjoy working and earning my own money. And it's partly my own fault. In the spare time I have actually had free, I've spent it mostly on social occasions. I could've made the time, but I chose my friends instead. Both worthwhile activities.
I gave up a few days ago. I knew there wouldn't be enough time in the day to practice, so I planned not to. I looked at my future and saw time next week where, I hope, there will be time to strengthen my music. But at the time there just wasn't anything I could do. So I gave up, but only on short term.
