This will be a short post, since I'm kinda swamped at the moment :)
However, if you are a music student, or a professional in the early phase of your career, please, please please stop saying how busy you are, how much stress you are under, how tired you are etc....
As a musician, regardless of performance/education/industry etc... you WANT to be BUSY. YOU NEED to be busy, you better hope that you are busy.
manage your time, manage your varied interest, and know thyself - but ALWAYS welcome the opportunity to perform, teach and "be" a musician - some day, someone will show up and want what you have - Keep working, be involved and don't complain about having a lot to do, or before you know it, you'll have all the time you want.
