Haha! It looks like a future me! Sweetheart, the pieces which you are learning now are helping to establish your technique. You need technique. Believe me. OK, if you think Moonlight Sonata is hard, you should see some of the other stuff out there. And the "easy" pieces that you are playing now are teaching you things, whether you know it or not, that will help you play the songs that are REALLY difficult. What I did was just quit lessons, so I didn`t have anyone to make me learn all these seemingly foolish technique songs, so I thought, "yay! now that I`m free from lessons, I can play whatever I want"...so now, here I am, and as I have stated, very very many times in these forums, now I am struggling--but actually sounding good-- on Rachmaninoff and such. I mean, my playing isn`t faulty, I just don`t have the fundamentals to help me master music with more ease and in less time. SO in conclusion, if you think you`re being all high and mighty by critisizing all of those songs that are sooooo easy and ridiculous, you`re uh...really not being high and mighty. Just tough it out, learn the easy songs, and you`ll have MORE FUN playing the real music WHEN YOU GET THERE. TRUST ME. GO THROUGH THE METHODS. Good luck, Jackie.
