As many of you might know, I have been spending the last three years of my life trying to complete a Masters Degree in Music Industries.
I was incredibly scared and nervous going into this final project for my MA because I know that things can change relatively quickly in the industry.
There’s A LOT of people (in and outside the industry) that have opinions about the things that are happening and many are very vocal about them.
So my biggest worry was to get shot down and penalised by those people, especially people within the industry that I might look up to.
I didn’t want to share my project with the world until I heard back from the examination board because I was terrified that I might get a bad mark and be the laughing stock of my peers…
It got to the point where I was having nightmares about the email that would appear in my inbox, telling me how I had performed. And more or less two months after my deadline, it finally appeared…
Totally on edge, sweating like a maniac, I opened it and followed the links to the results, to then see this…
I screamed and cried at the same time out of happiness and relief!
For somebody who has felt like a damn loser most of her life, this really is one of the most important moments of my life because for the first time I genuinely felt (and feel) like I’m very much the opposite and I am so proud and happy of my achievements!
I’ve been working hard on my attitude and the way I view myself the last 2-3 years, and it was one of my goals going into this MA to improve my confidence and the way I view myself within certain situations in life.
After having one of the worst years of my life in 2013, I am so happy to see that 2014 is so gar going in the right direction.
