Man, I say you gotta go with what you want. Not with what you think you should do because it'll make you more successful. When I graduate I'm moving to a different town with a buddy of mine to work on our band stuff. It sounds crazy to a lot of people (especially my teachers), but that's what I want to do. Of course I don't mind doing some grunt work in the mean while and living off noodles and 99 cent burritos. That's all I need.
And I'm not going to do anything else because I don't want to. That's what you need to do, man. Don't let standards drag you into doing stuff you don't want to do in your life. Otherwise, is it even your life anymore?
