So I wrote this song Chasing Rainbows a while back about chasing your dreams. Well, I took a huge risk today. I decided that I'm not going back to my full-time job this year, the same job that I've gone to everyday since college. I have decided to pursue music full-time and not just make it a hobby. My dream is not to be Gaga or some huge star, but to create music for TV/Film, perform, and etc. I know what you may be thinking but this is something that I have to do. It's my own ultimatum, now or never.
I wish that I could tell you that I'm brave and fearless, but honestly I am very scared. What if things don't work out? What if I decide to teach again, and can't find a job. Yep, these are all risks.
So this year, I am pursuing my dream. Will I get a song placed on a commercial/TV show? Will I be able to open a show for an established performer? Heck, can I even get the elusive 1000 friends on my fanpage? That so-called magic number that establishes you as a "true artist". Only time will tell. At least I know what will happen if I do't take a risk. Absolutely nothing. And as they say, in order to have something you never had, you'll have to do something you've never done. Oh well, for now I'm headed to the gym.
