Jabbe Posted September 15, 2011 Share Posted September 15, 2011 I don't know if it's just me, but people treat working a 9-5pm job you hate just to pay bills as normal and "the way life is supposed to go." I don't like that at all. I'm a 25yr old divorced ex college student who has held over 11 jobs. I learned that 9-5 just isn't and will never be for me. My music career is launching very soon in Asia as an artist/producer for well known acts in their respected countries. The thing is that no one in my family ever got by without a normal job, so they don't really believe in what I'm doing. I don't care because I know that if I continue a normal job just for the sake of paying bills, I would never be happy. Music is my passion, I have to pursue that no matter what. It's the only thing in my life that feels mandatory. It's hard living with my parents and being in constant contact with major pop stars. I'm even being hired to reboot the career of a singer from the 80's. All they keep asking is "Where is the money?" First of all, they don't know how this business works and second they haven't taken the time to understand what I do, so why ask about MY money? All I care about is peace of mind and happiness. This is the only career than can give me both. Never cared about money. If I won the lottery tomorrow, my feelings wouldn't change. If you can't be happy in life doing what you want, then I honestly and truly believe that there's no point whatsoever in living it. It's like everyday that goes by someone tries to pressure me into changing my mind about what I've chosen to do. No way will I ever listen. It's my life and I'll do what I want with it for the sake of myself and no one else. Some people work in warehouses, some people become doctors, and some people are talented. There's nothing wrong with any of these. I don't try to make people understand or even tell them what I REALLY do on my free time. There's just no one around here I can relate to and just feel like a fish out of water. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
