...and I'm not happy about it. I decided after 4 years of crappy grades that I don't enjoy my current major in college (mechanical engineering) and I need a change. So I'm going to be transferring to Middle Tennessee State University to major in Recording, which I've always been interested in. This means that I have to move down there within the next month or so and leave my current band. Of all the bands I've been in, this one has been the most fun and the best sounding. I think with a little work we could get somewhere. However, I have to think about my future. My options are either: a) drop out of Michigan Tech, keep working part time at the paint store and hope that we can make something out of the band with the connections we have. b) move to TN, start a new major that I really enjoy, and probably start a new band. I've pretty much decided on choice "b" already because I know that my future career is pretty damn important. I'm just torn because I know the other two guys in the band resent me for my choice. Not to toot my own horn or anything, but I have a feeling that they won't be nearly as good without me on bass and keys, and I think they know it too. The thing is, we have some pretty good 'connections' in the indie rock scene, and I think we may be able to at least get a distribution deal with some work. However, like my dad told me, I have to look out for myself and think about my future. I guess I just needed to get this off my chest. I'm sure other people here have been in similar situations before where they had to leave a good situation out of necessity. Thoughts?
