rai., my feelings

00:0002:09

I just wanted to write out my feelings a bit. you don't have to read or agree or anything. I was thinking why I even try to make music in the first place. Its my hobby/passion and I really love making music more than anything else really. I've tried so hard to try to make a career out of this because if that happens, it'll be a dream come true. I don't want/need to be famous or anything, but just find a way to have some gain out of it. I guess it's just a way to justify to myself for spending so much time on it. At the same time, its not like i am out of options either. I don't have bad grades at school, and I'll probably find an ok job after I graduate, but I really can't find myself being happy in that situation. This way of thinking is probably because I am Japanese and the asian stereotype of strict parents is true. I was taught growing up that anything outside of school and making money is a waste of time so every time I make music, it's in secret. I also feel guilt at the same time, but I know it's not wrong. Either way, I know there's a way to brand and market and invest in your music in a way to get it heard. I just can't figure it out yet (advice pls). I've been doing music for more than 5 years now and I know I am nowhere near as good as the professionals yet, but idk. I know I have no right to be depressed but i just needed to vent. thanks for listening.

(sorry for the simple beat, just whipped up a quicky)

    It's ok for your career to be in something that's not your top hobby. Suppose that you have two hobbies, one of which you enjoy more than the other, but both of which you enjoy nonetheless. You can do either one as a career and the other as a hobby; the end result could be similar except for which activity earns you the money. Of course, you'd probably spend more time in your career, but time spent doesn't need to be proportional to enjoyability.

      However, if someone wants to become a top notch musician, doing music part-time or as a hobby might not let them reach their potential and their goals. Depending on how much you care about reaching a certain level in a certain period of time, it might be worth it to have a low quality of life if it means you can improve and make really good music and do it sustainably/full-time. So I think it's more about what you want to prioritize and weighing the pros and cons of doing music full-time.

      These are really good points. I'm looking at doing music full-time, but I do worry about it becoming much more stressful and unenjoyable when my standard of living is dependent on it. I would rather do music part-time on my own terms than being stuck forever in the loop of trying to market myself and freelance and make money off of music in annoying and undesirable ways.
