A Brief Glimpse

April 3, 2012 at 5:19 PM

Although as a music major my day isn’t sometimes over till midnight and I have to up at 9am the next day to do it all again, and although I have 3 rehearsals scheduled for Wednesday and I have 5 or 6 performances this month, who would I be if I didn’t have music? It’s easy to get bogged down in how much menial stuff we have to accomplish in one day but life is a marathon, not a sprint. I am in this for the long haul. I am blessed to be able to study what I love and do it day in and day out. How many people truly get to say that?

Not many...

As a passionated violinist in healthcare, I can say that true passion in my class is quite low... (often not people's first choice and they took it for, you know, job opportunities) Still, I don't think it shows. It's rather a sort of an "acceptance" process, I guess.

Best of luck to you, that's great and you're right :)
