My Piano Recital For My Biggest Fan- Me!

For my final learning project, I played “A Thousand Miles” by Vanessa Carlton! I was so excited to be able to play the song, there was one part of the song that I struggled with, and I plan on practicing more. I think my next step in the song process is fixing up the part I am struggling with. Then I will work on memorizing the song so that I can whip out my piano-playing skills whenever there is a piano nearby.

When I was practicing for this song, I thought it would be funny to write out lyrics to the song that has something to do with our EDTC class. You can find the lyrics below, the bolded parts are my lyrics and the other half are the lyrics from “A Thousand Miles” by Vanessa Carlton.

Making my way downtown- Chillin in EDTC

Walking fast, faces pass and I’m homebound- Blogging it up, playing bops, and were learning

Staring blankly ahead- Zooming into class

Just making my way- ready to learn

Making a way through the crowd- Learning about Twitter

And I need you- and bios

And I miss you- and hashtags

And now I wonder- and now we all know

If I could fall into the sky- Blogs need links and images

Do you think time would pass me by?- We need posts not pages

‘Cause you know I’d walk a thousand miles- ‘Cause you know i did my learning project

If I could just see you tonight- and posted it online

It’s always times like these when I think of you- At 7pm we gathered round started to learn

And wonder if you ever think of me – Thinking about cybersaftey

‘Cause everything’s so wrong, and I don’t belong- Cause everythings so sad and things go bad

Living in your precious memory- trusting in internet strangers

‘Cause I need you- cause it’s scary

And I miss you- and dangerous

And now I wonder- and we hope our students know

If I could fall into the sky- If they dont know, we’ll help them learn

Do you think time would pass me by?- do not trust randos on Social sites

Oh, ’cause you know I’d walk a thousand miles- OH cause you know even friends of friends

If I could just see you tonight- just might not be real

And I, I don’t wanna let you know- And we, we built eportfolios

I, I drown in your memory- we, we expressed ourselves online

I, I don’t wanna let this go- we, we read eachothers posts

I, I don’t- we, we blogged

Making my way downtown- Now that we are all done

Walking fast, faces pass and I’m homebound- we will take what we learned to the classroom

Staring blankly ahead, just making my way- teaching our students, how to be

Making a way through the crowd- responsible and safe online

And I still need you- And we are still learning

And I still miss you- We’ll make mistakes

And now I wonder- but we’ll look back on

If I could fall into the sky- what we we learned, in EDTC

Do you think time would pass us by?- I know we will remember why

‘Cause you know I’d walk a thousand miles- we need to keep a strong digital 

If I could just see you, oh-oh- IDENTITY

If I could fall into the sky- Our main takeaway from this course

Do you think time would pass me by?- To teach students to be safe online

‘Cause you know I’d walk a thousand miles- as well as use all our resources

If I could just see you- and broaden their minds

If I could just hold you- to give them the best 

tonight- EDUCATION

Please find my voice memo of me playing “A Thousand Miles” by Vanessa Carlton, just a reminder, I am definitely not a piano-playing genius but I tried my best and I plan on continuing my progress.

I had a great time learning the piano and as I went through my past posts I found some photos that show just how much I love the piano. Whether it be smiling while I play or goofing around for the camera I had a blast.

Thanks for reading, you’re a gem ?

I’ll catch you next time.


Update: I went to Costco today and I sat down at the piano and continued to practice the section of the song I remembered.

I know the sound quality isn’t the best, but I am excited to practice whenever I get the chance.
