Sad Music but Happy Me!!

Everything goes so fast, no waiting, no freezing, and all seem so bright! Just one click and it's all there in the blink of an eye. Or even faster. This feeling is new, as I was used to a lot slower response from the tool that served me during the last few years. You know what I'm talking about, right? Yes, that's the feeling when you use your brand new laptop for the first day. I hung out with an old one for a long time and it was the time for this change. Finally.

In fact, I bought this new one a few days ago, but due to various circumstances, we have not been able to set everything I wanted on it until today. Migraine, work, then migraine again, so it's been a couple of days... But Sunday came, as a perfect day for a SadSunday post I used to publish some time ago, but alas, how sad it can be if such positive excitement rules today? We successfully set everything I needed for now in less time than we thought. All went pretty well, here and there a few things, but all good now.

One of the first things that were installed was the PreSonus Studio One 5 software that I use to record my music. Of course, I already tried it right now and recorded one piece. What a nice feeling not having to lose unnecessary time for trying to get the interface to be recognized by the laptop. It went every time lately with the old one in that way, it was a bit frustrating even to think about recording something. So, the first recording went very well. Also, after editing the video, the upload to 3Speak went in less than 30 seconds! That was nice also!


In the next few days, I will start to sort out from the old laptop the documents I consider that I will need. Tons of music sheets, photos, backups, recordings will or be deleted or stored in the external hard disc. Oh, and the endless list of once bookmarked sites also. I know, it will be time-consuming, as I will want to save many things, but I will try to be efficient and not let myself think in the way: I will need this piano score one day. No, in all that mess I don't even know what do I have. Now I see everything clean and running fast, and I do like it. Good organization will take place! Exciting :))

One of the scores that I have on the old laptop is this Nocturne no. 4 in D minor that I play here. The composer is Dennis Alexander, a retired piano teacher and composer from the U.S.A. It is a nice piece, but I think it will be thing less to save. I recorded just the audio part of how do I play it and added a royalty free video downloaded from pixaby. I tried to find a sad one, at least something to be sad for this #SadSunday post hahaha.

This was my Sunday, setting this new thing and playing a bit the piano, and being happy because of that. Well, just happy is a weak word right now, but anyway, let me leave it that way.

How about your Sunday? What nice happened today to you? Or a sad event maybe? Did this piano piece, Nocturne brought you sad or nice musical moments? Plenty of questions, to be easier to choose among them... Hopefully, there will be some soul to see them and maybe answer to one of them... :)
