I've never really found myself really being good at one particular thing. Being raised in a household where pursuing music was looked down upon, I found myself following the very stereotypical career path of going into medicine and just making my parents proud. So I kept music as a secret for the longest time. Lately, letting them know that music is the only way I can feel like I'm worth something, it was too late. All the time studying for school to be someone that my parents would be happy with was time taken away from me writing music. I found myself only having a few days to write a song before going back into months of rigorous studying - never getting better at what I loved doing.
So when I heard the lyrics, it reminded me that all I want is to know that I'm worth something not to anyone but myself. I'm qualifying to be a Ph.D. candidate in less than 2 weeks, but I knew I needed to remix this to tell myself that I don't have to choose. Win or lose, I want to thank you and SKIO for this inspiration - because I feel like I made something I'm finally proud of, and for that, I'm grateful.
Welp. Back to studying lololol.
