Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
Says music was always a "diversion from class."
He tried out a bunch of different degrees because he wasn't sure what he wanted to do as a "job."
Knew that he loved music more than anything else, but figured he'd never make money playing music.
Thought he'd be okay getting an economics degree and playing music as a side project, but then his band started taking off.
Suddenly, they were living a dual life, trying to keep up with college classes while simultaneously touring.
He used to think that the tension of not knowing what to do was a bad thing, but now says that that pain is a useful emotion.
Says in the music business, it's hard not to let his work be dictated by what other people think of it.
He's reached a point in his life where he asks, "Do I think this is awesome?" and if the answer is yes, he does it without worrying about any other opinions.
