Deep in the southern regions of California, is a place where summer nights are filled with S’mores & Broken Dreams. Welcome to San Diego, burrito central and DIS CRIS headquarters. This is the setting of my next story. A year ago, I wrote about The Almighty Universe, “the universe doesn’t like being controlled. I will continue to focus… up until the moment my destiny stops me in my tracks and makes me realize how much of a powerless human-being I truly am,” yup, that one. Last November, I submitted transfer applications to three fantastic music schools- CSU Long Beach, CSU Northridge and San Diego State University. Afterwards, I received word that all three music schools would accept me into their programs for the Fall of 2017. I would eventually choose CSULB’s Bob Cole Conservatory of Music to continue my education, I was set with three room mates and thousands of dollars in debt, however, this is not where I leave you. This past June, I had signed up for San Diego Choral Consortium’s Summer Sings! program. A yearly gathering of choirs around San Diego. The Director had chosen me to perform as their tenor soloist, it was a privilege, however, with joy comes searing and gut wrenching pain. During rehearsals I had received an email from CSULB’s Bob Cole Conservatory to update me on my application status. Well it turns out there wouldn’t be an application to update because I had been withdrawn for not meeting university standards. Now this is where I leave you, a bit abrupt, however in complete surrender of my future. The biggest lesson I’ve learned through this ordeal is to accept the inevitable. “the universe doesn’t like being controlled. I will continue to focus… up until the moment my destiny stops me in my tracks and makes me realize how much of a powerless human-being I truly am.”
Note to self- You are a damn sexy human being. Always believe in your magic.
