This Blog Is Changing, fo ' shizzle.

Once in a while, I like to revamp this blog.  I've decided to do so again, but this time it'll be in a different way.  From now on, in  addition to a focus on my music and pianos, I'll also be highlighting more of the visual art and art projects that I've been working on; therefore, the look and feel of the blog itself will be cleaner, less cluttered, and focused more on the image content and text in each post.

First off, there's a new header that's pretty minimalist overall. 

Secondly, I've created an entirely white background for the blog to keep things more simple for you, oh gorgeous blog reader/visitor. To give you a sneak peak at the future of WPR, here are some examples of stuff I'll be posting from now on. DOODLES .  .  . oh snap, an asian lovin' on a piano. (that's some good lovin')

Goodbye 2012

On Tynan

I'm sitting by a crackling fire at my aunt and uncle's house in New Jersey and we're just a couple hours into the new year, which means that it's a perfect time to review the year and look forward.

If I were to title my year, I'd call it the year I got serious. Something interesting happened near the end of 2011-- I realized that I wasn't actually on track for a lot of my goals, that I was going to have to actually get serious about stuff, and that this seriousness had to come in the form of action, not talk. I ended 2011 with a few months of solid productivity under my belt, and a year-end post that optimistically predicted a productive year.

I'm happy to say that the productive year materialized, and that my focus on getting serious has intensified.

When I was young, maybe third grade or so, a psychologist did a study at my middle school. We answered some questions and were offered two choices: a small prize now or a large prize later. I took the small prize now. I think knew it was the wrong move at the time, but the pack of stickers on the table looked like a lot of fun. Later on the big prizes were given to the waiters in such a way that I was able to see what they got. Sure enough, their prizes were a lot better and my stickers were long gone.
