I'm so excited -- working with my teacher on the Beethoven Pathetique Sonata, 2d Movement, and its the first time I'm actually working on FOUR pages of score at the same time! A milestone!

To be able to play any Beethoven sonata properly is a monumental accomplishment! (except perhaps op. 49.)

Congratulations! Sounds like you're getting somewhere. Beethoven's music is so loved.

Congratulations, doesn't sound very beginner-like to me! How long have you been playing?
