I don’t know how to play guitar or piano, and though I do belt out a tune on occassion, it’s safe to say I’m no Adele. I’ve tried to learn how to strum a guitar, but I dont have a natural talent for it, and my lack of attention and general state of chaos keeps me from keeping my ass in the chair long enough to learn.
I want to be one of those people that walk down the street with the guitar strapped to thier back. There’s a coolness factor to those people that I rfeally envy. Doesn’t everyone want to be a rock star after all? I’d settle for being able to pluck a few strings around a campfire. I know they say anyone can learn, but I think the “they” that say that kind of shit are lying. Not everyone can learn. Sure, you might be able to understand notes and chords, but musicans are born, not made. I guess the same can be said for artists of any sort, becuase there’s just no faking talent.
I’d also like to be a comtemporary dancer, and a visual artist doing sculpures. I don’t think dancing around my living room or making a macaroni necklace counts, so I can write off both of those career options too. It’s hard to find your passion. We all want to be special, but to be special you have to be exceptional and being excpetional at something is pretty hard too.
I don’t think that chocolate eating is in the running for ways to go down in history, but if it was I’d be top of the list. I write a mean poem, and seem to have a way with dogs. Something about the sing-song in my voice I think.
So – as it stands – I am searching for the perfect life path – a chocolate-eating, dog-loving poet. Let me know if you come across a job ad that fits the bill. I can assure you - I’d be exceptional.
