Positive, healthy, loving relationships in your twenties... I don't know if anyone would disagree with it: I think they're the exception, not the norm.

Know the names of past and current artists who are most famous for playing their instruments.
Marilyn vos Savant

I'm a natural piano player. So all the practicing I do at this point is in my head. If I don't play for a year, my chops aren't going to get any worse.

Harry Connick, Jr.
