Hello My Dear Darling Friends!
It’s officially official! I have started DJ training (as in a disc jockey who creates and hosts radio shows!) My college offers this opportunity to students and community members. I have always loved all kinds of music, but lately I have been in a bit of a rut with Pandora and Spotify. How does one truly discover new music?
Last quarter at school I discovered that I am struggling with social anxiety and it was begin to spill over all areas of my life. I would sweat, stutter, and my mind would go blank by the time I was ready to form words.
I wanted to find a way to stretch and challenge myself yet also grow in confidence. I think participating in this DJ training could help me “Find My Voice.” I have a lot of work ahead of me. Additionally, I have always felt daunted by creating playlist and using technology in general so this will be an excellent way for me to practice and overcome my phobias.
I will learn how to operate sound mixers, use Audacity, plan a radio show, and so much more. I am completely new to this field and I a looking forward to learning more. I want to make it a point to see this through. I booked studio time for this wednesday to practice and I am super excited! Wish me luck!!!
Also, the campus looks quite magical at night!
Love, Joy, and Blessings Always,
❤ Alana Xoxoxo
