I'm mad at myself for majoring in music

Music is sooo exacting it’s enough to drive a healthy mind to murder. As if there weren’t enough challenges out there that we need to make them up by inventing music. It seems like such a waste of human potential.

It’s actually what causes me to NOT murder. I can murder people in my music without doing it in real life. Ok ok I wouldn’t be a murderer if it weren’t for music but music is great. Cathartic.

What if murder seemed justified? Maybe I’m not thinking of the frustrations of angry children who are too little to kill their tough opponent. Is there a natural justice that law interferes with?

I majored in music too. Sometimes I think I would have a better job and life if I had studied maths or computer science instead but I am glad that I had those years doing mainly just music. I work in computers now and work takes up enough years of your life so I figure why not pursue your passion when you are young. I get what you are saying about music being exacting though (especially performance of classical repertoire).


Oh, how I wish I had majored in music instead of nursing in college I would have been so much happier an individual all of my life!

That’s funny, one of my favorite jobs was running kids from a children’s home to a clinic. I thought then that I should have been there permanently instead of trying to get a degree in music. Besides all the pressures and risks of failing in music is it’s hard to pay the bills with a music career.
