Here we go, once again. But this time, it is the last time. My final update. To let you all know, my largest problem was my persistent and rather annoying writers block. This little problem stuck with me since the middle of the project, and took a large toll on my work ethic. I caused me to get frustrated, bored, and to lose motivation for it all. I did eventually. It just took way too long. I had gotten over it when we had gone into the last few weeks of the project, making it impossible to finish my song on time. The way I had gotten over this road block of the mind is that I had just waited it out. I had no tools in the box inside my head to break down the wall, so I just waited it out. Now that I have come up with some ways that would have kept me busy, I seriously regret my decision to wait out the massive amount of time that sat ahead of me. I wish that I had looked at more pieces of music so that I could have gotten more ideas. I wish that I would have looked up ways to get past writer's block faster. I wish that I would have listened to music to try to find more inspiration, but I did none of that. I only sat down at a piano and practiced. Day after day. I did nothing be practice and wait until I had gotten past my writer's block.
To be completely honest, I think I will not remember more than one or two things from this project, 10 years down the road. I think I will only remember how to play the piano, and read and write music. Everything else, I will have potential and sadly forgotten everything else. I will make the same mistakes I did with this project 10 years down the line. I will still be playing piano 10 years down the line. I will be playing music 10 years down the line. I will be procrastinating, getting frustrated, getting bored, having writers block, doing nothing 10 years down the line. I won't learn from my mistakes and I will suffer from it 10 years down the line.
Finally; Do I think that schools around the country should have 20% projects? Yes. I do think that schools should have some sort of 20% project. This project does need a lot of fixes and changes, but over all it is a good idea. This projects allow students to explore some of their interests and allows an expression of creativity that some schools don't even give students a chance to explore and feel. This projects gives a student a break from usual work and lets them work on things that they would much rather do.
