Balancing school and a slowly growing singing career is very difficult. There is external pressure to invest in both, and there are precious few moments where the two pursuits overlap. It is a constant battle – live for the moment, or live for the future?
Luckily for me, lately, it has come down to the same thing ever time I am feeling the crunch – Go to a practise room and WORK. This is one of the only activities that consistently overlaps with both succeeding in my degree program and succeeding in my future career.
Even more luckily for me, the time I spend in the practise room is also the time that I feel the most serene, the most productive, and the most inspired.
