(Technically Summer isn't over yet, but it does feel like it.)
To be honest, I write these blogs because i enjoy when people show interest on what I share, but it's up to you whenever you see that desire as attention seeking or just as desperate struggle to have friends.
For me, i'll admit it's both.
My summer was more like the previous months, not meeting up with anyone for a friendly hang out, nor romantically.
I neglected my desire to have real friends because it stops me from focusing on my life goals.
The sad truth is, that even without that, i couldn't achieve my current goal: getting a job.
But it's natural that after almost 2 years of searching, a man like myself would lose his motivation, his determination, his hope.
And when i lose hope, it's either complaining till the end of time, or take a break and regain the stuff i lost.
Soooo...i'm gonna do something about it! And my plan is to learn how to play an instrument.
"So simple! But why?" Well, my parents have been involved in music for most of their life. my mom is a Vocal Pedagogy teacher, and previously, worked as a music teacher at school(she even sang in the opera at some point), while my dad sings in concerts nowadays. my step-brother also works in music, and has been a drummer for many years. he owns a studio now, and got lots of projects to work on.
I've been rejecting that path for many, MANY years, and only saw it as an hobby(playing the piano by ear), which is weird, because i do have potential.
And that's why i thought recently: "Well, i love music, and if it's possible, maybe learning to play something new, would bring back my motivation."
With that said, i'm planning to learn how to play the Saxophone starting this September. I always loved jazz, and this instrument is perfect for that genre.
Sure, it might take years until i gain enough knowledge and experience in order to take that to the next level, but my mom tells me a lot recently: "You're still young. why rushing? Nothing forces you to hurry in life. you do."
I do have expectations to write my own music sheets once i'll be capable to do that. W-Well, first of all I need to learn how to read music sheets, haha..
Guess I'll give it a shot.
Also driving progress: already done over 20 lessons, and my intern test is very close. not so sure about the license test, but it's not like everyone pass it on their first try.
Test's pretty tough.
