16 years old! My name is Justin and I am a very musical person. Once you get to know me I turn out to be very caring and nice.
Here is a life update of what has been happening lately. A lot has been actually. The studio I intern at has been pushing me forward like a lot. I mean a lot. For instance, today I was called in to be an Assistant Engineer for the head engineer at the studio. For most of you who don’t know, that’s a big deal for an intern that has only been there for 1 month. And yesterday I was training an intern who has been there for 4 months on microphones and the inventory. Now I’m going to be teaching him ProTools. Am I really that ahead of the curb? Assisting before other interns and teaching people? It’s awesome I love it so much. Me and this guy have become really good friends (He is the chief engineer) and have been working together all day helping each other out. Today at the studio we had a client who flew in from Austria. She was a 17 year old girl who had so many originals. Amazing voice and good guitar playing. I coached her in ways to help keep her pitch in tune while playing guitar. And I even taught her how to tune after she broke our G string on our taylor guitar….(after me and the chief engineer had to work together to fix it as fast as possible) But I feel as I am becoming a part of the studio. A crucial member who is earning themselves a name.
It’s funny, I’ve been walking around just thinking to myself that I may actually have a good chance at making myself successful in life. I have felt this way since July, someone who is lined up and becoming something most people can not. It’s good not to get too full of yourself and I sure do have a lot to learn. But these past couple of days have been quite interesting how fast I am climbing this ladder. I made $300.00 this week for recording. And it can only get better from that.
I believe I can make something with this life of mine. I am dedicated to do so.
Also… I am fucking going to Austria… Holy shit these people are beautiful. Luckily we exchanged numbers and she’s coming back to record an album. :D
Probably one of the nicest things that was ever given to me.
I must admit, there are times in my life where I wish I still had a person that would care about me. A person that would take time out of their day to do stuff for me. Times where nothing ever mattered except for me. I sound pretty selfish saying all this and making everything about…well myself, but It’s nice knowing that all that one person needs is you. It’s nice knowing that someone is compassionate for you, cares, and wonders about you. Every person lives for these feelings I believe, but no one knows what I am even talking about until you experience it first hand. …Kinda like how they say you never know what love is until you reach that very moment when you meet someone and you just know it. Feelings that are non-existent to you but exist in the depths of the human mind, and life itself..at least until they are experienced.
I miss them.
