In another life… I would be an attorney and a DJ as a side job or hobby. Law was my first love, but my mother was hospitalized when I was younger and attempting to understand her illness steered me more toward the sciences. Actually, law may have been my second love. My love for music is everything, and I thoroughly enjoy introducing others to new music. I’m usually the person at social functions controlling the music or asked to make a playlist for everyone’s enjoyment.
Advice? Don’t compare yourself to others because that’s a losing battle. Get in tune with your own abilities and evaluate yourself based on what you know you are capable of, thinking of your progression and not perfection.
