Getting lost in music was all I done from a young age. I can recall putting everything I had, time, energy, money, belief and hard work into my music for years, to be told over and over again to get a real job by the people who loved and cared for me the most.
Bottom line is, they were trying to educate me on something the knew nothing about, had I listened I would have never been able to put the hours in to craft my skill and as a result, my soul wouldn't be fulfilled.
Other people know nothing about your needs and desires as a human. Always follow your dreams, to the point of breaking and then some more.
Now go, be great and ignore the noise, its mostly silly. - 0 seconds
