Is it wrong to say that I'm ok with the idea of not being in university and deliberately unemployed for at least 3 years to focus on a long term idea?
I've looked at all of the uni courses and none seem to be useful for what I want to do.
I want to pursue a music career however it would require training, having time to make craft and practice. I need time to work on my craft because though I would like to sing, song write, produce music and even dance I don't have enough practice. I have never ever produced a track record before and I've only written probably 4-5 songs in my entire life. I'm still trying to find my sound and my identity as an artist. At the moment because I've made my A levels first priority it's all on hold the things I would like to do.
Going to university, I'm sure the same thing would happen where because I am so occupied with meeting deadlines I won't have time to do all of these activities so I'm thinking twice about going to university now .
I've been told that without a degree I have the risk of being unemployed but I'm not looking for a secure/ long term job at the moment. I have goals in terms of the job I would like to have and the life I would like to live. I thought to myself, imagine for three years you're working in a shop i.e Tesco at the age of 21/22 however you're practicing/making craft everyday would I mind and I thought no. If things are moving no where- the highest thing is I'd go to uni as a mature student. At least I tried and had crafted music.
You should try and find work in a studio start as a tea boy and end up a rock star if you know what I mean?
Do what you can within reason. Think long term too. Music is not easy to break jnto nor is the money good at the lower end. I am sure you can do something like have a job at the same time so you ahould be alright either way you go. Uni wont run away anytime soon so you can go whenevr you wish.
How are you going to pay for all this training and experience with no job? If your parents will be helping you are you sure they will be okay with footing the bills for 3 years? And have you thought about what 3 years with no job or education will look like on your CV? Employers are going to ask where that gap came from.
Obviously do what you want to do, but make sure you could consider everything from all angles.
