So, the topic of this post seems deadly cliche. But I don't know how else to say what I had to do. Nor do I know if I made the best decision. I decided to drop two classes, both of which I was LOVING: Philosophy of the Mind and Philosophy of Religion. Why? Because I had a fantastic discussion with my voice teacher. And realized that I had been trying to tackle too much. Maybe that's part of the whole feeling like I cant get anything done. Is this "I have too much on my plate" feeling, then crash, burn, explode into "I don't want to do a damn thing" attitude.
Letting go of these classes though feels like I have committed a crime. I feel relieved. But I will miss the intellectual stimulation of Philosophy.
The decision really was based off of my need to focus on my music. My voice teacher, what an angel, really gave me the pep talk of a lifetime. I have for her deepest respect for her. I realized today how much she believes in my abilities to sing. I really want to embrace my vocals like a professional and dive deep into my singing career. I know she can take me there. She even got me a bit teary eyed.
She gave me a list of classical singers to study and to figure out which songs I like the best.
(I will post the list once I learn how to spell their names.) And I will be showing you all what I pick to do as well as strut my vocals off.
Wish me well.
