I've gotten the bug back. I've missed only 1 or 2 practice days in the last 4 weeks, and I always practise for at least 30 minutes, often an hour, so I'm probably averaging 40 minutes a day.
So the time has come. I've retrieved the ABRSM applicant number from the gmail account, I actually registered a year ago. The exam dates are from early November to December. I can apply after the end of this month, and that's what I'm going to do.
I want to learn to play all kinds of stuff, but I need to get a few grades along the way first. So here we go. No more procrastination or excuses.
