Okay. I have a problem here. How are you naturally good at all these things? Are you an alien come to take over the world starting with WHA?

Let's review:
Math: Okay, you practiced this a lot. That makes it understandable that you're good at this.

Skateboarding: What free time? From the way you've made your character it sounds like any free time she would have would be spent, studying, or helping your mom with chores and other such things.

Piano: Okay, so grandma taught you. What happened when Grandma died? Any normal child would have started learning an instrument about age 9-11. So, Let's assume you started earlier than most children, let's say 7. You only learned piano for 4 years and you were still a child, barely able to sit still in you seat, let alone concentrate long enough to learn a whole lot in the time frame. Also, when grandma died, did you stop playing for a while or did you keep playing for whatever reason?

Handling animals: Just no. I could see if your mom taught you how to handle the animals or if you said that you watched mom handle them and picked up from what you saw but, nobody's just naturally good with animals straight out the gate.



Now, I will give you this suggestion if you really want to keep all these things as skills and proficient in them. Say, you tried to learn piano from your grandma but, when she died you stopped playing and filled the time instead, with skateboarding. While doing so, you found that you were amazingly balanced and learned fairly quickly how to drop into a half pipe. After you grew up some, you picked up piano again and, with better concentration than a ten year old, were able to recollect what grandma taught you and advanced this skill further. Now, when you went with your mom to the vet office, you watched as your mom handled the animals and learned things from watching her and, as you grew older, your mom began to teach you how to do so.

Ok,I can fix some stuff.

As for handling animals,I have to disagree with you there, Some people can handle animals right away with no previous expierience, I am one of those people IRL,I've seen people who animals hate and they never like them,it just comes down to the person,usually the calmer the person the more animals tend to be calmer themselves.
I'm studying to be a vet,and spend alot of time around a vets office and have seen this alot,and I can handle animals and haven't been around them very long at all.

Skateboarding though I agree with you,it was something that popped into my head at the last minute and i didn't totally think it through,I'd be happy just removing it totally.

Piano: She actually started learning at around 5,which is possible since some people have learned at 4,So she had 6 years,true she didn't remeber much of what she learned,and she stopped playing after her Grandma died for quite a few years so she is very rusty,and doesn't know many songs or chords but she's trying to pick it back up,she just started playing again this year.

I am going to completely remove skateboarding.

Hope you approve now,and sorry for any spelling errors sometimes I type to fast and don't catch my mistakes...

These things you've just told me need to go in the history part of your skills.
