    I was satisfied with how I performed in the audition, playing all the pieces without wrong notes. I could have worked a bit more in places like tempo, dynamics and the chromatic scale, but I thought it was good enough. The last piece of homework was finished and I decided to relax the rest of the night using my iPad.
