My Crossroads, fuck them.
So basically, theres a fair bit going on in my life right now.
Not all good either, most of it, all stressfull, and your probably thinking, ‘Arcadia House was released yesterday, whats he got to say about that?’, well, of course thats great, couldn’t be more happy with how its going, and how well the release actually worked. I was actually quite skeptical that the album would actually hit iTunes on Feb 1st, worldwide, as we only finished it just over 4 weeks ago, and there is a 6-8 week pending time, for albums waiting to go live on iTunes.
So thats great, very happy, however, my focus on life is pulled in another direction at the moment. School, and to explain the story, i need to cover some past events first.
For the past two years of my life, ive been fucking around at school, wagging, and being an idiot. The first school i was at, asked me to find somewhere else, because i spent half of Year 9 (Grade 9 as some of you may be more familiar with) wagging, which means ‘not attending’.
Long story short, up until now (Grade 11) i did the same thing, with my girlfriend at the time, at the next two school i was enrolled at. This really caused major drama’s with my parents, which didnt reflect to well on my family either.
But, why Sam? You ask. Its simple. My love, and passion & enthusiasm for music, is beyond words, so when i would ‘wag’, i would create. Create new music, promote my band. Which has really paid off, in some respects.
So here’s where my dilemma stands. There is a school i really want to go to, which i had a chance at before, but screwed it up, that would suit my lifestyle, so much better. Give me more time to be home, making music and would also allow me to persue a traineeship in production on the side. However, if it we’re that simple, i’d be there, but my Mum enrolled me at ‘Hawker College’, which if i go through with, i will be tied down for the next 2 years with work 24/7. Which i feel will leave me no time to keep creating, and follow my dreams. Mum wants me to go to Hawker, because she doesnt trust that i will attend if she lets me back to the other place (C.I.T.). I’m fighting with her every day, over this, and i just need to prove to her that i can do it, and will attend, and prove her wrong.
Im doing this for you guys, the listeners of my work, because i dont want to let you down, or let the dream slip away. Maybe my mum will read this, and things might change, but i need your help. If you feel i should put my life into music, please give a vaild reason in a comment, and explain why it would be worth it.
By the way, i got on the bus the other day, and the man directly across from me, was wearing a t-shirt, which immediatley drew my attention, it stated:
“Imagine Yourself, as the person you want to be.
Do, the things you want to do.
Never, let your dreams slip away.
Live, the good life, the easy life.”
I was like, ‘What the fuck, is this a sign?’, anyway, You be the judge, feel free to PM me.
