When a #Piano Dies, #Music Itself Weeps to Hear

2 Sep

This is so awesome. I know that they’ve gone through a ton of other devastation, but as a devoted piano player — I know how sad that kid and family must feel. Anyone who loves the piano knows how precious your pianos are to you. You treasure those notes and keys — the sound it plays (even if out of tune) becomes the standard by which you judge all other music. It stands with you when your happy, it soothes you in sorrow, it rages in your anger. The piano is like an old friend, always sturdy and waiting for you to just open the lid and pick up again. It plays any song you’re feeling, giving you an outlet for expression and a listener at the same time. I used to have a beautiful old upright piano that I LOVED. I still think it’s notes were the prettiest I have ever heard. It followed me from home to college to graduate school thanks to AMAZING Family who helped us move it despite the weight. But when I came to China, I had to give it to a new person. It was so hard to do. I still cry when I think about it — I REALLY miss having a piano. It’s so kind of Yamaha and the singer to replace this families. I love this guys response to the losses and how he is facing it head on. That’s what piano players do — sit down, play until you have the strength to move on, and then go out and face the world with new determination. Prayers for Texas, Oregon, and Montana!

Bar Exam Results & MPRE Requirements

4 Nov

Hey!

   For my Law School followers, I’ve added two new pages to the blog.

  • The first is “Bar Exam Results” — Here you can find links to all the officially posted Bar Results (some states don’t post them, and I’ve marked those) and Statistics. This covers all 50 states as well as Guam, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Virgin Islands, and the Northern Mariana Islands. Good Luck!

  • The second is “State MPRE Reqs” — Here I share the minimum passing score for each state and the time limits for when they will accept an MPRE. Did you know that 2 states don’t actually require an MPRE score? Good News!
