“I’ve got a million and one things running through my mind.”

“Tell Me So” by Paola Mauricio | Paola’s back, after a little over a year, and this music video (which dropped last night) couldn’t have come at a better time. Well, partly because it’s our last week of new posts for the year, but also because I’ve been grappling with these very thoughts lately. I feel left behind by my peers, and I am turning 30. Paola’s got these very thoughts too. After a horrific accident which she came out of surprisingly unscathed, she decided to quit her day job and try music one more time. “It’s not particularly easy for me to be pursuing music now while my friends are moving up the corporate ladder or getting opportunities I could only dream of,” she said. “But then I thought, ‘I almost had my life taken from me. I have nothing to lose from giving this another try.'” So, a cautiously optimistic angle. The further you get into this, the more you think you can’t catch up. But it’s nice to know it’s not just you – because you do tend to think you’re alone in these things. A nice reminder, even if at the moment, in your particular circumstances, you don’t think you could use it. [NB]
