    Okay. *inhale*. *exhale*.
These videos were taken at the end of 120 minutes of my practice on this 120-second-passage in Prokofiev 2.  Yes, I spent 2 hours on less than one page of music (that wasn’t even Don Juan, lol.) Why?  Because I am disappointed at the prospect of sounding anything less than Julia Fischer.  Is this a good goal?  Yes- but is it fair to my self?  At this point, most definitely not.  Am I happy with the final video?  Heck no. Did it contribute to my mental stability today?  Um, see: videos 2 and 3.
I have operated on a “never give up” rule of practicing for a very long time- which occasionally means “don’t take a break whatever the cost”. I struggle to sacrifice the idea for the long term health of my career and, well, myself.  Does it make me a better violinist today or tomorrow?  Yes.  Is it sustainable?  Maybe- but evidence says that it’s destructive to all other areas in my life.
Because it is now 7 PM, and I have practiced 4.5 hours, cooked 3 meals for myself and family, finished writing several articles, and finished several crochet projects for other people. But haven’t, like, gone outside 😬
So, it’s time to re-evaluate this way of practicing and change.
Speaking of writing, articles, and mental health- I’ll cryptically say: watch for another post tonight, and maybe.... a link.....
