It’s funny how so often, even when we’ve done something many times, we assume we’ll react in a different way than we have every other time we’ve ever done it. Like even though you never wake up to do work when you set your alarm an hour earlier, every night you decide to let yourself go to bed without finishing it with the promise to yourself that you’ll wake up early you think, “This is going to be great. I’ll go to bed now, wake up early, make some coffee, and get to work. My goodness. Why don’t I do this every night?” And then you sleep in even later than you would have normally. Or maybe you’ve watched the movie Punch Drunk Love four different times because everyone around you loves it and you think, “Maybe this time I’ll love it,” and then you still just don’t really like it very much at all. Or you order a juice that has vegetables blended in it because, I don’t know, it sounds like it will be fine? And healthy, too? And then it is just the grossest thing and you can’t even drink any of it at all, and it was so expensive. Or like maybe you see a video on the Internet of a small child playing piano very well and you think, “Oh, I’ve seen things like this before. He’s a kid so you don’t he’s going to be that great, but then he’s really great. NBD. I’ve you’ve seen one of these things you’ve seen all of them.” And then you watch the video and IT IS SO GOOD.

AHHHHHH!!! He’s so tiny! Look at how fast his tiny hands are moving! He hasn’t even been on Earth long enough to be that good, how is he that good?! WHERE IS THIS BABY AND HOW CAN WE HAVE HIM TO KEEP? (Via BuzzFeed.)

  1. okay, what am i even doing with my life?

  2. Noooo! I get stuck in these internet rabbit holes where I just watch videos of tiny children playing the songs I’m trying to learn as a grownup who has been playing piano for almost 20 years and they are so much better at it than I am and then I have to go cry into a a glass of wine :(

  3. Isn’t he delicious in his little adorable pj’s.

  4. He totally missed that E flat in the fourth bar, third measure I have no idea what I am talking about. How can I has talent?

  5. As a fellow yellow, I’m getting angry just thinking about the youTube comments on this video.

  6. In other news, though, this kid is great. He looks like he loves playing, which is not always true of five-year-olds playing the piano.

  7. I’m obviously impressed by this kid’s talent, but I’m even more impressed by how genuinely excited he is to play these songs.

    When my parents made me take piano lessons, I hated it. Of course, now I wish they had forced me to stick to it.

    Like OH.MY.GOD Kelly, this is my life.

  9. I should just go home and go back to bed

  10. I don’t care for Punch Drunk Love either! That feels good to admit.
