So people like to ask me what I want to do after graduate studies. Answer: More graduate studies!
As you may know if you read the FAQ (it comes highly recommended), I am studying Commercial and Electronic Music. I won't go into depth here, but if you really want to know what that is all about, read the FAQ (seriously, do it.) In short, I will study the music industry, play with a lot of music tech (software and hardware), and get a lot of writing experience on the way. A lot of people ask what kind of job can I get with that, and that answer can be pretty long (if not easy). My real answer is that it doesn't matter -- this degree is a waypoint, not a destination.
The key is in the previous paragraph: get a lot of writing experience on the way. Procrastination and inactivity has always been my enemy, so with school I am putting myself in a position where I have to write. When I'm done, I will have a portfolio that will be the key to the next waypoint: Graduate studies in Music Composition! That's right. Graduate school to force myself to write, so that I can write stuff that will be strong enough to get me into more graduate studies where I will learn to write better. Oblique! Round about! Awkward? Sounds about right.
And let's not forget that I want to study Japanese and minor in Japanese Studies also (FAQ). At this point, I am not even registered for the all the classes I need for C&E Music (more on that on a later day), so the Japanese Minor will take a back seat until I'm all settled in my first priority. But it can't be ignored, because when I'm ready for that second graduate degree, I want to earn it in Japan. You might say that's my destination, for now.
But always we return to this: what job can I get after all that? I don't know. This I do know: I am forging my own path via methods that I have chosen for myself. Knowing that, I can only guess that my "career" might be more of the same, a unique path that can't be classified as a job. Or maybe I'll bus tables at Denny's. There's also the flipside to this crazy plan: What if this does not work? What if constant, reliable, and quality writing is an impossibility for me? Well, should that come to be then I will have tried, I will know, and I will be satisfied.
TLDR: I want to be in school forever, have fun in Japan, and who knows if I can make a career after that.
