    thats about how I feel right now. Im at a major fork in the road of my life, and I have no map.

    I've always been good with computers. Im majoring in computer science, i have a computer job, everyone asks for my help etc etc...

    My problem is that I dont know if thats what I want in life. Computers are cool and everything, but...its not what I want to spend most of my time on earth doing.

    I've been playing in a band for about a year now (bass player), and it feels like we have something special going. I love music. I fucking love it. I love the expression and the freedom it provides. I think my life would be much more fulfilling if I were to pursue music completely.

    Has anyone else ever been in a similar situation? I'm not interested in becoming a pop star or anything, I just want to make a decent living and play music. How hard is it? Is it worth it?

    I dont want to be stuck in a cubicle. It scares the fuckin shit out of me.

    one of my best friends growing up switched from a business major to music. He's in a funk band now and seems to be enjoying life. I donno where you are, but he's in WA. I bet if you went to one of his shows he'd totally chat it up with you on the topic.

    I would definitely say get your degree first. Once you've got that chase your dream for a year or two and if it doesn't work out, at least you've got something to fall back on.
