And now, "uni-tasking." Or, "tasking."

Today I'm playing "Sonatina in C" from Adult Piano Adventures, which is not nearly as fun and dirty as it sounds. I've discovered that it takes my brain 100 percent of its capacity to play music. I start to play it through pretty well, and the moment my mind strays from the next set of notes, it all falls apart. Here are some examples of what I've been thinking when it crumbles:

I wonder how many more times Jeffrey can hear this friggin song.
I wonder how many more times I can hear this friggin song.
Hey, I'm getting pretty good at this!

And then it all disintegrates, a la "He chose ... poorly" from The Adventures of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

My brain needs to learn some discipline.
