As my parents would say, all my hard work has been “para la nada,” or “for the nothing.”
What do I mean? Well, I’ve been composing a piece for the last week or so. It’s just a little project, a song for female voice (in the Soprano register) with some piano accompaniment, but there’s been about 35 hours of work I’ve put into it over the last week or so.
So when I was getting very close to finishing it, and then my computer’s battery died, I freaked out. When I realized that the project didn’t save, after I charged my computer and turned it back on… I couldn’t take it.
I was lucky to have saved a few snapchats of the first part of the piece, and recreated it based on that, but it’s still not the same. I’m currently doing what I can to catch up, and recreate as much of it now as I can from memory, but I know it won’t be the same.
Really, I’m disappointed in myself, but I wanted to finish this song before Christmas, so now I’m putting in my extra hours to finish it.
Pray for me, y’all.
