I guess this is an appropriate time to give a mini recap of the past five months of my life. Only question is, where do I start?
I was accepted into the music business program at UGA, I decided to change my major (something I thought I’d never do), I made it into the UGA à Paris program, I set my heart on music therapy, I worked my butt off trying to get into the school of music, and ultimately… failed.
It’s funny how failure seems to overshadow every other success. I’d be lying if I said that a few tears weren’t shed when I found out I didn’t get into the school of music. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t feel like a complete failure. It would be easy for me to say that I never thought I was good enough anyway, but that isn’t true.
Failing and being rejected is never easy, but somehow in this situation I have a lot of hope. I don’t know if I’ll audition again to get into the school of music because honestly I don’t know if I want it bad enough. Sometimes failure pushes us to try again, and sometimes failure pushes us to try something different. Either way, it’s pushing us towards something better. So despite my disappointment, I know that none of my hard work was for nothing and I am very confident that I’m moving towards something better. Of course, I’m not sure what that something is. But I’m excited to find out what comes next.
