 Re: Pittsburgh Ballet Dumps Live Music

So I lied about that being enough from me. All of what you've said just motivates me to work harder at what I do. I have been slacking off this past week and a few days, but for the summer I've put in 5 or 6 hour practise days. I played in an ensemble at a university a little while ago, and one day after there I put in way more than even that. I'm not doing that to end up "sight reading well and playing a bit of clarinet and sax". During the school year I have music for four hours every day. I play in 3 orchestras regularly and a wind ensemble, and take on many performances on the side. I DON'T do this to end up doing it as a hobby. You people don't seem to get it- music means more to me than all of that. Call me nieve for not realising the reality, but I'm not an idiot- I won't ruin my life financially if things don't work out like I've said. I'll do something else, and painfully put away my instruments until I have time for them if need be. You think you're right because you sit on the other side of the fence years ahead of me in this scenario, but for now I haven't chosen a side (I guess what you're trying to get me to realise is that the sides do the choosing, but anyway). I've already had some amazing opportunities, and if I walk away from this with my "lofty dreams" not materialising, then fine. I'll still have a lot of experiences that I wouldn't have had. I devote a lot of time to this that no-one would unless they really wanted to do it. People come on here all the time talking about taking the same path I want to (some recently, too) and they don't have nearly the drive that I do, nor the gumption to be frank. I know I'm going to give this my all, as much as the stars you have in your CD collection did and still do, and if I don't make it- then it'll be because it wasn't meant to be, not because of something I didn't do. I've had a lot happen to me in my life fairly recently, and I've become a lot more faithful in GOD (oh yeah, he played THAT card). If it's not meant to be, then fine. At least I gave it the best shot I could, and I reiterate that my life won't be ruined financially afterwards.
