I have two issues:
1. I am buried in student debt.
2. I’m in an artistic rut: I don’t play music or write songs nearly as often as I used to.
Since I’m a massive fan of killing several birds with one stone, I’ve developed this plan:
For the next year, I will play music in public at least once per week (in a subway, on a corner, in a coffee shop, wherever). I’ll keep a tip jar in front of me, and every single penny I make will be thrown in the direction of those loans. It will be both financially productive and artistically healthy.
I know I’m just one of millions feeling this burden, so maybe you can relate. Check back often as I share my experiences.
