Ughhh, I passed up on another Cruise ship gig this afternoon... If it paid more than $30,000 a year I'd consider putting off school. I'd also take it in a heartbeat if I knew I could make money by fixing instruments and making double reeds in addition to the gig.
I'm going to make it a priority this year to learn how to do each of these things. I need to be able to support myself in the arts without relying on other people's generosity.
