I'm not sure my family will have a turkey dinner (we almost never have turkey for Thanksgiving) and instead we may just make a traditional Chinese food for dinner instead. A big feast but minus all the tryptophan! Turkey is pretty yummy I think, but I don't like Turkey stuffing. I'm not crazy! It just doesn't appeal to my palate is all.
So apart from stuffing my mouth with delicious Thanksgiving dinner I've gone to my friend's house to have a guitar 101 lesson! As you may well know I'm in university pursuing a degree in Biology right not but it is not going well. I got my first math midterm back and only received a C+ on it. I was absolutely gutted and today was the Physics midterm too... although I probably passed, I definitely did not do a stellar job on it...nooo goodbye high GPA! I'm also starting to realize I don't like science as much as I thought. The worth of a biology undergraduate degree is not very high and I can't really find work with it when I graduate. All the calculations that the sciences demand is very strenuous on me and I am once again thrown into uncertainty about careers and what I want to do for the rest of my life. Maybe next semester I'll take off to do some soul searching. I know one thing for sure. My dream job involves music, I want to sing for people, I could play an instrument all day and love it! It's hard conforming to such a structured program like science when I am more of a creative person. It's just my parents except greatness from me in sciences, they wanted me to be a doctor when I was young and they still want to push me towards medical work now. I've made it blatantly clear I have no intention of doing anything medical but maybe I'll have to one day. Survive before you can thrive. Don't mix hobbies with work. That's what they always tell me.
One thing I really want to do is learn some guitar and compose some good songs then sing at a coffee house or something like that. I don't really expect to get famous but I think just doing that, making music for everyone for the rest of my days would be amazing. Of course this decision can't be a rash one and I hate dabbling around so much, wasting my parents money on schooling or tools that won't help me prepare for my career but the alternative is I take something I dislike, stick to it and work at a job I hate for 40 or more years of my life. I want to be happy, I want to make other people happy. Music is the way I want to do it!
Speaking of music, I have started learning a lot of new songs on piano including How Deep is your Love by the Beegees, Arrietty's Theme from the Movie The Secret World of Arrietty, and Erik Satie's Gymnopedie 1. I am absolutely in love with Erik Satie's work! It's very simple but sounds gorgeous! Like dream music! A singer from Wales called Charlotte Church sung a version of it named "From my First Moment" and I've been raping the replay button on my phone
Also here's some art I've done in the last little while!
