So, I have this crazy idea to pick up drumming cause, you know, it’s so damn cool.
Being the music junkie that I am, you would have thought that I would have majored in music especially since I did dance, theater and music in high school (Broadway bound baby!) but alas, I did not continue with that dream and majored in something “practical”in college.
That decision is forever embedded in my brain from a convo with a family member:
Me: I am looking for a job and boy is it hard
Family member: aren’t you glad that you didn’t major in dance imagine how much harder it would have been.
Me (with that weird “you just backhanded insulted me and did not know it” look): I guess?
I should have said “At least I did something I loved!”
Family, Love them but completely misunderstood by them…
So I took their advice and did what I “should” do…and now I am at the point of doing what I want. And I miss performing and the performance high (the adrenaline that comes after being on stage). So I thought, hey! Why not? It would be fun, different, hard but fun! I love challenges.
I told my love and he got so excited (I was going to surprise him but I am terrible with holding surprises with him. I went crazy waiting on him to open his birthday card on his birthday) that he got me the pencils (and the book since we are both big nerds).
How awesome was this?!
