Day 20: Sunny Purgatory

Yea! I made it through to the end of our Photography 101 Challenge 🙂

Although I didn’t complete days 18 and 19 I am still celebrating.

Ya’ll are probably wondering why, so let me cut right to it. For almost a year now, I have gone back and forth, cried some tears, had a few drinks, and spun myself right round about what my future plans will be regarding studying music.

Will I give it another go at my local college? Maybe look for work at some starter up company? Should I pack up and do like they do in the movies and move to some big busy city?

The answer to all of those questions are no. I’m not as dramatic as I thought 🙂

I have decided to finish getting my AA and pursue my BA at my local university. Although I did recently found out that my current college is offering an Audio Technology Certificate…which could help me gain work that will PAY in the future…if I can fit it into my last 2 semesters (this Fall and Spring) then I will consider it.

Though for now, at least this summer, I am going to knock out more of my general classes. And when I can, I will still study music. As well as practice my guitar, voice, and piano on campus.

Then this time next year I’ll be study…History? Language? Art?

I haven’t decided yet. Though I do know that I still have plenty of reasons to smile. Because I had an opportunity to try, and that’s more than most. Going to school for something that I am so passionate about was great – even when it was really hard. That doesn’t mean that it’s over, that I just stop pursuing a career in music.

There are many more roads to travel in this field. And I intend to seek them out. Now that I am out of this purgatory that I’ve put myself in.

Things are looking up ya’ll!





Music has always been a part of me. No matter how many times I would try to pursue a career in something else I would find myself coming right back to it. So now I am done with running scared. I was all in on this journey. And I'm so glad that I saw it through, because it lead me to something that I love. Something that I didn't think was possible - the ability to become a self published author. For years I have written poems, my thoughts, short stories, and songs. Really it was just therapy to me, but now I want to see where else it can take me too. So I'm learning the social media ropes thanks to all these social media outlets. Also working up my nerve to face the networking scene for the artists and musicians in my hometown too. All with the hopes of connect with others who love music as much as I do. And to make some coin by music and write freelancing. Let's see what happens, shall we?
