Recording is so interesting, and I really want to pursue audio engineering and doing live sound for events and doing a lot of recording. I think I'm gonna keep doing film and then do audio stuff really intensely and maybe not get like, necessarily, like university credit for doing specifically that just take a lot of classes that will help me be really knowledgeable, because that's what's important. Knowing the stuff is what's important and just like having a space like this stuff and oh my God, it's It's It's wild. So one of the things I wanted to talk about in this block are just kind of like things I've learned this year and since I'm in the studio. I thought it would be really fitting to talk about what I've learned in terms of audio music and myself. I'm just, like, so interested in less science, behind audio as well as like that technical skills that are required to do good recording, knowing microphones, nothing. Knowing how all of that stuff works, which I just realized, I think I basically what I've learned about myself is that audio is something really passionate about, and it's something I want to proceed. Since I've been like so set on film, it's really hard for me to accept any changes in my directions for the future. I can understand why some people might have trouble in his class, but it just like, really works for me. I've also learned what it's like to be in a band. We recorded a couple songs and I'm so happy that again play with people who, like are just so talented and pushed me to be better. So it's kind of like a musical passion thing I've learned, you know, like what I want to do in the future and kind of like giving me more of an idea like, OK, what do we really, really want to dio and what is like not something I can sacrifice? But I've also learned like a lot of lessons in terms of emotional, well being, social interaction, connection that have made me grow the person so much. One of these things, which is something I learned very recently, and it's so striking to me and so important to me is that the expectation of satisfaction will lead to suffering. It may be really like I can experience longing, and that is OK, but don't expect anything, because the minute you factor expectation into the equation you can on Lee let down and like that's also unfair to other people. That was just like a really important lesson for me. It's just like something I knew before, but kind of have for gotten like I was really, really looking to other people for just like living basically so recently, I kind of got myself back on track. Been living from within, you know, went for some runs and the rain laid down in the field and the rain. I was in this weird situation with someone recently that just like, really, you talked with May. I just became so unrecognizable in my social interactions in how I was communicating. It made me like, kind of like, just like, kind of a monster. I learned this behavior in, like communication because it's the thing that were That's not okay. Uh, it was bad. I don't associate your expectation with things. Don't just don't expect things, you know, like you can You can be hopeful you could be longing, but don't expect things because you're just gonna be let down. That's sometimes how things were, and that's what makes us human. I really think someone's about to come into this studio. There's something else that I've been like realizing I don't know. I'm just like trying to come up with things to say that I've learned recently to be honest, but we'll go. There are people who, no matter what you do, it's just not gonna feel like you're ever speaking the same language. On the other hand, there are also people who, like you're just gonna immediately connected, and it's not gonna be a problem, and they're often just kind of hidden, like where you wouldn't like that. So it's important you, I don't know, necessarily speak those people out because oftentimes they're gonna show up when you're not looking for him. Some wisdom I've learned recently is you have a plan that requires other people pull through. First day Neto unlearned that immediately Because when you get to college, you'll meet people who didn't grow up around you On in high school, you only knew how to really talk to people who grew up around you, and you need to learn a branch out and accept new things. It's just you don't know what you don't know. Day thing is a huge spider here, so I'm gonna try to fast and after plane. So if you want more like things I've learned in my time here, that's a good place to find that. One thing that I kind of realized more recently is that invulnerable is a sign of strength. Sometimes it's just like too much, because maybe like they can't really handle. I'm kind of prone to being like, really honest, just like everybody. No matter what their cases in which may be, Yeah, that's kind of big, but maybe you get you think I'm gonna let you off here really a flawed, But it's maybe just hopeful. Probably like the last you're gonna be, like, really set, like on campus, because I have finals next week and then I'm out of here for a couple. On the syllabus, he said, others At the end of the semester, there's gonna be like a three page paper on musical analysis.
