Livin’ on a prayer

Hello everyone,
I hope you are healthy and doing fine. And I am back with my complaint, struggles, rants, or sob story. Whatever you may call it.

(That's a Joke. I love you guys and wouldn’t bore you with my sob stories. And that is why I brought you the sob story of my gameplay.)

After doing a week of Illegal busking and random Open Mics for a week, I think my luck is changing. I managed to attract enough crowd of people that someone did notice men and offered me a slot. Which is a big thing considering that I spent the entire last week doing nothing but getting booted from corners to corners. It did hurt a little when I came to know the real story behind the offer. Turned out I am just a filler. But that's ok, pretty soon at this point I will take a gig at the birthday party as long as they offer me a piece of cake. And are willing to let me hold my guitar. I wish there was any legal way of doing this because I am tired of getting kicked around. And since there is no such provision I guess the only way is to pay off those pesky cops. I don't like to promote bribery but sometimes it seems the logical move.

The plan is to become a rockstar. But with my current Luck, I don't even seem to get anything. The only way through seems to be grinding. And that's what I am have been doing. I had been roaming around the streets looking for Gigs that pays out in StarBits. But it's a tough competition and with this luck I am not getting anywhere. But I guess I am not that unlucky. As I came across, 50 or so people who are looking for starving artists in the streets of Buskeria. And I applied to all. (Talking about giveaways) I am sure many talented artists participate in looks for the handsome payout. And I am sure the selection is in lottery-style completely based on luck. But I am feeling lucky lately so who knows maybe I will land a nice gig and win something to hold on to.

Oh!! I almost forgot to mention. After learning that I lack talent, I signed up Carlito. And by signing up I mean he agreed to roam around the streets looking for the Pizza Slice and Cup of Coffee. But One thing I can say about him, The dude got some skills. So I got him a Mid Range Acoustic Guitar. So far nothing much is happening. Just some illegal busking, but I am sensing great adventure ahead. Anyway, things are ok... Scratch that... things are terrible here, but I am ok. Because at the end of the day. I am not alone in this. When I look across there is always another struggling artist like me who is going to the same shit as me, but with a smile. And I think I can beat that, and be an Icon, a rockstar, and inspiration to all the others. But till then the only way is through.

I am inuke and you are witnessing the making of a rockstar.
I enjoy playing this game. Not just for the rewards, but for the gameplay itself. It is literally the journey of the Nobody to a rockstar. And there may be many such games in the market, but I haven’t played any. And for that reason, I am rating this as a 4star game. (I am holding that 1 star for future use. Sorry!!! a force of habit ;-) ) As for the Livin on the prayer that is what it feels like lately. And that is Okay :-D

Cheers to all.
And see ya soon.
And if you have time give it a try

This game gives you somewhat of an idea of how I've felt, most years, since graduating Uni in 2007 ;^)

Perhaps not as a musician, but as a struggling creative.

That one little slice helped for a minute or five, but now I'm hungry again.
Thank you though :<)

I did feel something like that in this journey. And it feels horrible.
Now if a pretend rockstar guy game makes me feel that way. I cannot imagine the depression and sadness a budding artist may feel in the initial stages.
...
To work without pay or minimal pay and find joy in the work is not easy.
...
Would be a very messy situation and I rather not think about that. I sheer number of compromises that one has to make for the lack of finance is enough to strangle the creativity. It will leave you scarred for life.

I guess you get used to it but man did I struggle. I am getting to know myself better and better though ( day by little day ), which also makes me understand my past ( struggles ) even more.

Not sure about the scarred for life part though. There's powerful ways of healing ;<)

I guess that's what's called learning curve.
And it's not business or technical things you learn but you learn about yourself. What kinda of person you are and what is it that you desire from life. While focusing on keeping oneself alive..

Coming to think of it. There are million of things that I would have done differently now. But back then I think I did the best. 🤣🤣🤣

Not sure if that make any kind of sense

I think it's called life but let's be honest, there's many who never learn and mainly stay stuck. Say they can't change and so on...

Very normal, although I tend to think that everything happens for a reason. We can't change the past but we can control the now ;<)
