I wish I couldn't.

I've been having a buncha crunch going on lately.

A couple of weeks ago the owner of the small-business cafe I worked at called together a meeting, which we all thought would be another 'okay guys let's get things together' kind of lecture. But instead, to the shock of even the manager who was also purposefully left in the dark, discloses that the cafe had already been sold right under our noses and that we were suddenly jobless...didn't even put in a good word for us to the new owners or give us a little cushion of help in any way. What a butthole, right? Luckily for him, me and my coworkers were such a loving family that our sorrow for being separated and losing such a dreadfully unique shop overshadowed our anger towards him in that moment...not that we could've changed much anyways.

So...this interim of sudden nothingness reminded me of a similar experience I had six years ago and inspired me to get my gears grinding, so that another six years doesn't glide by with only an inch of self-fulfillment to claim. Through my seldom spontaneity, self-frustration, and the vigorous pestering of my best friend (that's been going on for several years) I visited Los Angeles again and inspected UCLA's Extension program in Scoring for Film via a real-life visit and friend-of-friends enrolled in the program currently. I also might try auditioning/applying to Julliard and see if I would even be accepted into such prestige. But, I'm still gonna be wimpy for at least one more year, get another job close to home while I'm still blessed to have it, and save up more money because America is the worst.

Stupid? Yes, I am the most basic millenial. Click here and listen to/share my basic Halloween song

That sucks, dude. This kind of thing happens all too much now it seems, sorry to hear you got caught in that. The good thing is that you're optimistically perusing other opportunities as a direct result it seems. Keep the goals in sight cause as you know, one year turns to many rather quickly

I’ve had similar situations happen in my life. I know the shock is rough at first. Sounds like you are not going to let it crush you though. Do check out the music schools, either one that you’ve mentioned. THAT is where you need to be!!!

It sounds like you responded to the bad news in a very healthy way and you are already thinking about ways to create a good foundation for your future life, so good for you! School sounds like a great idea. Trying to find a career niche that is not already too saturated is always a good idea, though.
