The decision


I was lounging about with a close friend of mine, expressing stress about getting into grad school in hydrology, or what it was I would study there… or, maybe I should just go to law school right?…

 She interrupted me to ask why I was going into hydrology when I had very little positive things to say about my physics major.  Did I ever read science news just for the fun of it anyway?  No. I didn’t.

Then what will I do?  I wailed.  Well, she began, the only thing you seem to speak passionately about all the time is music…



So I realized that what it was going to take to give music a decent career chance was commitment.  I decided to give myself 2 years to let go of all graduate school stress, all career goal planning except… throw myself out there and give it a shot.
