Never Give up!

The Plan

My Plan

I want to have a bright future. But that does not happen over-night. That’s why I have developed a plan to get there. Plans help keep you organized.

My goal after college is to be a singer/songwriter. This journey can occur two ways: 1. I’ll work super hard as an 8th grader to do well in school, then as a result my goal would be accomplished. 2. I will be so unprepared, and not willing to work hard now, and as a result I will fail and never pick up a guitar again. I would much rather the first one.

In the meantime, I will keep my grades up in school, and learn as much as I can about the subject of music and writing. In order to learn about these particular subjects, I have been involved in classes, and I read so many books about them.

After school on Wednesdays, I do guitar class. We learn new songs, and basic theory that we will all use in the future. Our main goal as a class is to have fun. We are on the same page as to treating each other with respect. This class not only is an education opportunity, but it is a chance to make new friends and learn about communication skills. This can come in handy when I work with people in my music business. 

This year I also joined a drama class. Acting is not exactly what I want to do as a college graduate, but it did help my stage presence. My character in the play helped me break out of my shell and interact with the audience. I had to be funny and there were so many lines that I had to memorize. It was a great experience altogether.

In school, I do choir as an elective. Choir’s great because I get to learn proper singing techniques, and some music theory. I think that is the main reason for my voice improvement. Once a trimester, we have our concert. Then again I get more experience on stage.

That’s just like last summer when I won a talent show. I was not trying to be competitive, but I was only doing it because I love more onstage experience. I was successful. 

That was my background on the things I have been doing to prepare myself for college and my dream job. In high school next year, I plan on continuing to get good grades, and also be looking for ways to volunteer places. This will look good on my college application in upcoming years.

I want to go to Linfeild College because it has a great performance art program. There are also business classes, and that will be relevant to me because as a singer/songwriter I want to manage my own business. Once I am out of college, I might see if I can do work in Nashville, Tennessee.

    This girl has so much talent. I’m so honored to be able to call her my friend.
    Cheyenne, I know you will most definitely become a singer/songwriter. I love your music, and if other people don’t then they have serious issues. We need more people in the world like you. Please NEVER GIVE UP your music. I’m so proud of you. #SistersinChrist4life

    It definitely seems like you have quite the plan! I hope it all works out for you. It sounds like you really enjoy choir, so I hope you continue doing that as long as you can and hopefully you can use that experience for something bigger along the road. Good luck! I know you can achieve something great.
