Hello dA artists,
It's been so long since I update a journal on this account. Life has been very busy for me compare to how I was when I was super young. Well, I'm 24 so I still have my youth. Return to college since 2012 in Fall semester and a lot has changed for me. I am almost done with my generals and all I need is to go all out for my major. I have been taking music classes for my major such as beginning/intermediate piano, Intro to Music, and fundamentals of music. Plus I have perform in a Band and my first recital. It was quite an experience and it help me to see where I need to be aware of on my weaknesses. I get nervous easily whenever I perform for the judges and I notice I tend to be hard on myself. But ever since the recital I have become a little more confident. I won't stop from there, there is so much work that needs to be done when it comes to skills and being a really good performer.
I haven't told my advisor yet, but I'm planning to minor in music. One of it is because I am focusing on career choices. Another is there is a lot of work for a music major. Thirdly, is because I have a lot of doubts in myself when it comes to career success as a musician. Well, all I can say is I'm going to keep on going no matter what. Despite all the set backs and doubts, I refuse to give up even though it's tempting. I hope to hear from you all soon. It's been so long since I check-in and see how you guys are doing.
Take care you amazing artists!
