Chopin Waltz in A minor

I learnt a Chopin Waltz for an adult beginners online forum piano recital which took me a month of intense practicing.
It still needs more work, but given the deadline of the recital (last night), I’m happy that I could even make it somewhat listenable.

I was under the impression that it was one of Chopin’s easiest pieces, but apparently i’m mistaken. Oh well, I feel that i’ve progressed quite a bit from the experience of trying to learn it and plan to keep on polishing it up.

I think I need to practice playing without looking at my hands. I do recall in a previous video of this same piece, I noticed that my head was turning left and right furiously trying to make sure both my hands were hitting the right keys. It seems ridiculous that I was doing that to coordinate my hands to the keys.
