Honestly, I never thought I would give off the impression of posting things as if “I’m the shit.” I just take life as it is, and if I feel like sharing something wonderful, then I get overexcited and post about it. Whoever you may be, I feel like we have a misunderstanding about how I conduct myself. You’re probably thinking…”Oh Great, he has a shit ton of things going on in his life, does anybody really care?” And I get that. I think the best solution to your question is to honestly brush it off and not make it a big deal. I post stuff that I feel like posting. If people like it, they’ll like it. If not, then whatever. NBD. I don’t like some of the things my friends post on FB, but does that phase me? Nope. Keep Calm and Carry On, my friend. AIN’T NOBODY GOT TIME FO DAT.
And to be honest, I’m really not the shit. I have a lot of problems handling all of the things I’m involved in. See the thing about being a musician/music teacher is that we (to some extent) rely on the community’s support. We have to go that extra mile to make ourselves known. I post some things that are relevant because I want people to be proactive in the community. I choose the music teacher profession because I love doing what I do. Even though I get paid 2-3 times as less than most people, I live for the struggle. Jobs are harder to find for us. You gotta earn your reputation just to even be considered. To be honest, grad school is honestly tearin’ me up. At this very moment (Friday evening), I’m spending my whole day studying and writing papers just so I can have some breathing room to enjoy my weekend. My life is not a 9-5 workday. I’m constantly under pressure, and yeah it fuckin’ sucks. I’m pretty sure if I were in your shoes, I would say the same thing. Reality bites. Grad school is fuckin’ tough. I need something to make myself feel better, and I feel that posting good vibes somewhat does it for me.
Whoever you are, just know that I’m not your enemy. If you don’t like what I post, you have two options:
1. Block and unfriend me
2. Ignore it and move on.
It’s really simple, bud. Don’t make the smallest things such a big deal. Live, laugh, love.
