Today while making pasta I was singing some improvisational songs to myself, nothing out of the ordinary. Some of it actually sounded pretty good, so I recorded a bit on my phone. I actually do this all the time, which results in a bunch of little under 30 second recordings like that on my phone. But today was a little different, because as I was playing it back, I thought to myself, Hey, what if I actually bought a nice mic and finished some songs and recorded them? And what if I tried to mess around with producing something, at least a demo? And what if people actually liked it and I somehow ended up making a career out of it? Then part of me was like, “You’re crazy,” and another part of me was like, “You should probably get a job first because you’re broke as hell and you can’t even afford a nice mic though,” and another part of me was still like, “Yo but it could happen like ay girl you got potential you could do it and I believe in you.”
The thing is I have so many interests that it’s sometimes hard to focus all my effort into only one of them. For example, I still need to work on my art portfolio. However, I think I’ll regret it if I don’t try to put something out there at least. You never know what could happen.
I think it’s good when your ideas scare you a little.
