I have a very similar experience to others who haven't posted. When I was a senior in college, deciding what to do with my so called life, I switched from being a music major to a business man. I got a degree in another three years, and I went on to get my Masters Degree from a really shitty university. My parents always told me that "grapes are only what you pick of them", but I went on to get a middle-income position, one that I would still be happy with today if I didn't get numerous promotions. When I think back to my decision leaving music, I think that it was my choice. My tuba teacher encouraged me to find where in my life the chair would balance on end, and I knew it wasn't as a musician. Some people never get away from the old way of life, but we're almost into the 21st century, and we need to grow up.
