XT: Yang Yang, the [piano] competition is just around the corner, how's your piano practice coming along?
YY: Nothing great.
XT: From the tone of your voice, you sound very indifferent.
YY: I've already done everything I can.
XT: This is definitely not the Yang Yang I know. You're one who is very eager to excel.
YY: Playing the piano has never been my hobby so it's excusable if I don't perform well and fail to attain any position.
XT: How can you give yourself with such a lousy excuse? After all, you have been learning the piano for more than ten years now.
YY: If it wasn't because my mother insisted that I learn to play the piano, I wouldn't be sitting there everyday practicing piano for more than ten years; it's boring. I'm really envious of my other schoolmates. After school, they can go right off and have fun.
XT: Your mom understands you. She found out that you're musically gifted and didn't want your talent to be overlooked.
YY: But I like to be carefree, I don't want to be restricted.
XT: Actually, practicing piano does not conflict with your freedom. If you put effort into your piano practice, two hours of result can be attained with just one hour of practice. After your practice is over, you can still go have fun with your friends, right?
YY: Sigh, you sound exactly just like my mom!
