Squeeshy Thing 1: Life After College – The Lessons That College Taught Me
I have obtained my bachelors in music business!
I could not be any happier, I’m so excited to finally have accomplished college. I’m from Mexico and graduating high school is a milestone, let alone college. Anyways, I’m very proud of myself for being the first member in my family to go and graduate college.
I must admit, it was long and dreary but definitely worth it. I’m so blessed and thankful to have gone for a career that I’m passionate about. I had questioned it at the beginning simply because I was influenced by the “adults” to not go for a risky career that guarantees me no success. I was so close to enrolling in local college for business, even though there isn’t anything wrong that field, it’s not what I wanted to do.
I followed my heart and went for it, but I didn’t do it on my own, I had the support of loved ones. For a while, like any other college student, I questioned whether if that’s what I wanted to do, or maybe I wanted to be in the film industry.
College sure makes you questions a lot of things about yourself, like your SANITY! Sometimes we bitch and complaint about the awfulness of college, and it’s not until it’s over that you realize what a wonderful growing experience it is.
- It prepares you for the environment you’re going to be working in
- It teaches you about your strengths and weaknesses
- Core values, such as respect, honesty, and responsibility
- Behavioral skills, like discipline, organization, and time management
- Most importantly, it teaches you to never give up
I love both, but I couldn’t decide. Just when I was slipping away, I took Music Supervision, a month before my graduation. It’s like I had fallen in love all over again, it was the perfect mix between music and film combined. I initially wanted to do music marketing, a&r, and management. But I was starting to question it’s environment. Music Supervision sparked this interest in me and I researched and researched and spent countless hours on the internet just admiring it’s beauty. I guess what I am trying to get at, it’s that this is a new beginning for me. I figured out what I want to be a part of, I feel secure with my decision like never before.
What lessons have you learned from your experience?
I’m so blessed to be a college graduate, honestly…I don’t feel like one yet LOL, I still feel like I haven’t graduated high school.
