Arts or Music?? What I did to help me decide
So.. it was a particularly lazy and idle Sunday morning. My mother woke up and asked me the quintessential question you ask to a 20 something girl on the verge of finishing college education. “What is next for you? Are you worried at all? What are your future plans?” However, I gave the same odd answer we all give, “Five more minutes Mom! Let me sleep! It is Sunday after all!” Society, in a way, always bullies us to take a decision. We succumb to the pressure of it.
But hey. Seeing you sitting there in your big cubicle and comfy chair. Enjoying your position as the CEO of that big business. Let me ask you “Did you know what you wanted to be when you were 20? Were you absolutely sure that this is what you wanted to do in life? What about in your career?” I guess not. So why do you ask me? How am I to know? Before long, I will follow my spirit. With that said, I sure hope it will take me to the right place. At that instant, my mother goes out of my room.
In the morning, I switch on my computer on as usual
It is my world. And the music stored in it is something I am really proud of. Although everyone is proud about their own music collection. Although, I am particularly proud about it. This is because I feel it has something for everyone. If music touches your soul; you will find something to listen from my collection of songs. The olden goldies, the new melodies, songs from various movies; and so on. It has always been kind of a dream to pursue music as a career. To study music and excel in it.
However, these thoughts cluster around my mind. At that point, I played the music of my favorite band. Just for a few moments, I lose myself in the irresistible charm of a good melody. Soon after, my mind was floating along the keys. As well as notes of the various instruments. Therefore, I try to follow each and every beat. Soon a very coarse reminder pops up on my screen. College education applications for such courses need to be done; and done now.
Again, I recollect my composure and get back to it
All of a sudden, my mother is calling me for breakfast. At that moment, the book propped up beside my computer is “The history of English Literature”. Reading such books gets me into my own zone. One day I want to be able to contribute something to this book. Something so significant that the world will step up and notice.
From my very childhood, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in arts. As well as do some really meaningful work in the field. So I need to further my dream. Go forward in this field. Considering I have topped all my classes for the last two years in all such subjects.
Nevertheless, I have categorically worked on all my assignments and term papers. Mostly, I got an A. Studying of such subjects can be boring. But I have figured out my own unique way of handling it! Imagination! However, I feel I am doing that particular thing or in that place as well as experiencing it! There it is! The secret to make every boring battle interesting and fun!
Decisions.. Decisions.. Decisions..
If music is my soul, arts is my heart. Both of them have shaped up my personality. Like a sudden flash of lightning, a thought crosses my mind!! What if I could do both?!! Just the thought of it makes me stand up! Wow! What if i could merge them both? That would be awesome! I will study both and merge it in my own way!
One day I will be famous! Everyone in the entertainment industry will know me! Because isn’t it actually a mixture of both arts and music? I will have a dream job. I will love that job. Maybe I could also travel the world. I could find out the different kinds of music as well as arts. Even the media and the “news making industry” will hire people like me.
Will I be able to do both music AND arts?
On the other hand, is there an option to do both simultaneously? Hmm, I think the best way out is to do it one at a time. Slowly, I open my internet browser. Shortly after that, I then start to fill out my application for a course in Arts. Suddenly, at that instant, I make a silent promise to the music reverberating in my soul.. “I will come back to you very soon” …
