I do what I want and I say what I feel, after I’ve picked it to bits.
Growing up and getting boring (or not)
In what part of life do we decide to be serious? For some people, it starts early. The random person in high school not many people understand who is submitting university applications early and doesn't have original jokes. In five years or less, they're employed in a steady job and have a kid and you look at them as you would a car crash: it happened so quickly and unpredictably and it is hard to understand how it is possible from your bystander view.
SPOILER ALERT! I COMMENT ON THE ENDING EVENTS OF THE NETFLIX MINISERIES, UNORTHODOX, IN THIS ARTICLE. I am a musician. I have always considered myself a musician. However, despite having attended a prestigious music school for university and having tried to find my own way within a music career, I have always felt stifled and hesitant on this path. My career in music thus far has been one of calculation and stealthiness. In this way, I can relate to the character of Esther Shapiro, played in Netflix’s recent miniseries, Unorthodox. However, the portrayal of musicians and their work in this series is also something I wish to critique and discuss.
