When I Grow Up

I've recently stumbled across the blog of a friend of mine from college. She went on after she graduated to go to grad school for Music Therapy - that's something I used to think I was going to do. Well, that or Musicology (I'm still torn on that one). Some times I'm fine with where I am. In fact, most of the time I'm happy. I love working in the arts, love crafting and love my garden. However, sometimes I feel like I'm not doing what I want to be doing or what I wanted to be doing when I grew up.

Going back to school would be quite easy provided I lived in a locale that had a music program with a good grad school. Unfortunately, I don't. There are programs at UT Austin that I would do, some at University of Toronto that look good, some at TWU and East Texas A&M that look good... but not here.

The sweet boy has 2 years left of school here in Fayetteville - that gives me time to think on this.

There are SO many things I want to do "when I grow up"... Good thing I don't plan on doing that for at least another 10-20 years. :)

I finally got my "grown-up" job a few weeks ago... and I'm still afraid I'm not mature enough. I think it's a personal problem though. Surely most people have their shit together better than I seem to!?

that's me! haha - Candace Wallner asked me a few weeks ago what my dream job would be if I wasn't doing music therapy and I thought about it for a second and realized that it IS my dream job. I think the most important thing is to do whatever it is that makes you happy. I'm honored you read my blog! :)
