GerGer turned six in June this year, and we started her on weekly piano lessons in August. I am ashamed that I have little time to practice with her. Her progress was actually good, despite me having no time to practice with her. However, she could not play any song with confidence, according to our… Read More I practiced piano with GerGer, finally.

I had a late night, so I stayed a little longer in bed this morning (this… Read More Business means work life integration
