  • double plot twist, he’s a grad student AND a TA

  • slowly unraveling one semester at a time
  • hides his dark circles with some thick ass glasses
  • because studying is life
  • until he sleeps through two of his finals and literally has a panic attack on the floor of his dorm room
  • professors love him enough to let him reschedule tho
  • if he hasn’t tutored you, has probably tutored someone you know at some point

So Niall mentioned Eric Clapton when asked about career goals, and I think he couldn’t have chosen a better artist, because 1) if you want to be the best you have to follow in the footstepts of the best and 2) because I can’t help seeing some parallels between them.

Eric Clapton always loved music and started playing guitar when he received one as a gift when he was a kid. He started playing in bands and he was basically the guitarrist. He didn’t really start singing till he formed Cream, a rock band who achieved great sucess, and he basically played the guitar in it while also singing some songs. He formed part of some other bands, and after many break ups, he finally decided to go solo (best decision he could have made).

Basically he started being that guy who played guitar in a band and did, ocasionally, the voice in some songs, and ended being an artist that decades later still sells albums and tours. He is considered one of the biggest artists in history, he is in the Rock & Rock Hall of Fame THREE times (as a solist and with two of his bands) and he is also, as a guitar player, considered one of the best, in fact he is the number #2 in the prestigious list of Rolling Stone magazine of the “100 greatest guitarists of all time”.

I’m happy that Niall recognizes what a great artist Clapton is, and even knowing how hard it is, that he aims to have the kind of career path he has. And let me tell you that, maybe, there can’t be a second Clapton in history and it would be vain to think that a person who has just “started” in the music world can be like him, but I think that Niall is talented, hard-working and kind enough to achive great things too on his own way.

(Also as a fun fact, Eric Clapton is known in the music word with the nickname of Slowhand, a funny coincidence)
