Day 16: What Did You Want To Be As A Child?

January 21, 2011

When I was a child, I think the dream that I had for myself changed with the wind. By the time I was in the 8th grade, I think that it was cemented in my mind what I wanted to do. I wanted to be a band director. By then, I had been in my school's band for 3 years and taking private clarinet lessons for 2 years. I was obsessed with music and everything that went into it. That was the first thing I can remember that I had a great passion for. I did everything in my power to learn as much about my craft as possible. I carried that passion straight to college. I was a music major for my freshman year.....then realized that I had stepped into the 7th circle of hell other passions that I wanted to make happen outside of music. Making music a career made me lose my love of it. So I let it go as a way to keep my love of music fresh. I did manage to minor in music.....making my degree a really creative one.
