I feel like my world is being flipped upside down this is not necessarily a “bad” thing, actually I think it is a good thing. I think I have been and will be challenged in ways that are preparing me for something exciting. However I don’t think my world has ever been quite this shaken up before so there is a lot of processing happening over here with me.
Let’s start at the beginning. I started my final year of my bachelor’s degree this past August and my next step was very clear: I was going to go to graduate school and get my masters in vocal performance…duh. So I applied to 5 schools…I was only offered 2 auditions and after hearing my auditions the schools decided I wasn’t a good fit. So I am 0 for 5. THAT WAS NOT PART OF THE PLAN.
I'm thinking that I might abandon the whole “plan” thing, because it’s not practical and it really only stresses me out because nothing ever happens according to the plan. I'm thinking about adopting more of a “project” mindset. So, the next big project is duhh duh duh duhhh: Project Gap Year! I don’t know exactly what this project will look like, but I do know that it will encompass a few smaller projects, and that it will be what I choose to make it.
I want everyone to know that, even as I got “no” after “no” I never once thought that not getting into grad school means that I am not good enough to be a singer, or that this was the end of something. I love this too much to give up that easily and I am really excited to see what I think about this time in my life 10 years down the road.
Thank you for all of your support and keep an eye out for some upcoming projects :)
The Dorkie Diva
I don't remember exactly when I came up with this, but I think it is so fitting! I really am truly one of the biggest dorks in the world, especially when it comes to Opera and Music and I hope you can see some of that here on my blog! I also hope Then there is the other half which is my diva side, she is only allowed to show herself in my style, and on stage!
