I’ve spent 6 years (since I turned 20 & got ‘uni student jobs’ that were no longer illegally low wage) saving up for this gear/set up. 1 item a year + a couple of hand-me-downs (tnx @mei.swan.lim @pantherpantherav 😉) . It’s been/is hard & slow to learn. Especially when my life situation (#u don’t know my actual story) and a warped set of values placed on me by the society I’m surrounded by has demanded I put everything else first as my creative desires/ capacities are a ‘whim’ and “won’t make you money so don’t prioritise it” / “art won’t pay the bills” 😒👎🏽 + I was deprived of the memo during developmental years that “you are worthy & capable & you’re passions & creative personality are respectable & beautiful” (😒tnx a lot childhood & then college boys #metoo ) But anyway- Now I have to keep telling myself “you’re not too old” and I set out to try and create music for the sake of music, beauty, my sanity & contributing to the world of art as a means of positive social change. Which is all I’ve ever truly yearned for. 🙌🏽💫 I’m dyslexic and make the dumbest mistakes each time I try and use all this tech. Lol sometimes hours of hard work go pear shaped because of a dyslexia induced mistake🍐. But tnx to best husbo ever tech nerd & my perseverance. Here’s to life lessons learnt, better L8 Than never 😏🙃🤙🏽 and to art💓 and to trying. P.s. if you’re a producer or artist or know of one and wanna help me develop or master ma beats, or collab, HMU.
