nobody can be successful unless he loves his work

it's sad to see that nobody cares and leave them breathless. some of them stated that this is part of their life. some says they can't live without it. some says they can't go a day without it. what is it? music. everyone loves music right? who doesn't? there's a bunch of kids who's very keen to play music at such young age. maybe they were inspired by musician like yiruma, sung ha jung, bach, rachmaninoff and many more. i have this one lucky chance and might be opportunity once in a lifetime to teach several of them at home. yeah, as i didn't do anything at home, my piano teacher had offered me a job to teach kids music at their home. we can say that i'm a private tutor, in music.

 i get to see this lovely and wonderful kids as my student, how they passionately want to play piano, guitar. i'm so glad to teach them whenever they need me. even their parent have been looking forward to see their kids play some instrument. you know, one of my student named lucy has been my favorite student. haha. you know she's naughty, so stubborn but yet she has that pure talent i rarely seen anywhere. i can tell you she might play better than i am when she's at my age. she's amazing. they way she play it, i know it was from her heart. despite her young age, she improved a lot better than any of my students. i don't expected that. sometimes she reminds me of the young me. sometimes we quarrel a lot, but when she plays, i looked at her and i tell this to myself, how lucky iam to have this little girl as my student. she even called me 'sir wolf' haha. for your info, she's the first student to call me 'sir'. sometimes she called me 'wolf'' instead of 'sir' whenever she feel unsatisfied with me. haha. you know, now i miss her so much. haish, that kiddo. :') this little girl has been special to me. well, we can say that i already treat her like my own daughter. lol.

but i know, she won't live longer. her mom has told me that she has a cancer and the chance for her to live is too low. i really feel sorry for her. at such young age, she has to struggle so many things in her life, knowing that her pain could kill her. i just hope for this miracle so that one day she would survive. yeah, that's one of my dream now. i really want her to be safe. she inspired me a lot in such short time. i will definitely encourage her to fight against her disease until the end. i will try my best to help her.

eventually, i really love all my student. because of her, i get to learn to appreciate everyone in my life, including all my students. beside that, i really do love my job. i get to see these kids every single day. i love kids! i love music! so this is a perfect job for me. to lucy, i just hope you're gonna be alright, eh? there you go your favorite word, 'eh'. well, keep on positive. i will see you in the upcoming class! :') also to my other students, i can't wait to meet you guys back. i already miss you guys a lot. period. :( 

So it's a Lunar New Year right? I hope this isn't too late but Happy Chinese New Year to all my chinese friends including my classmates and my lovely piano teacher. to all chinese around the world, Gong Xi Fa Cai!
