Should I quit music?

hey there, im drsooz. im what i would proclaim to be uncreative and untalented. i've been trying this music thing for a long time now, but i'm just now getting anywhere. im horrible at playing instruments and i seem to be horrible at creating music (i mean seriously - just look at what ive created. it sucks). ive been trying so hard at it for so long but im not getting anywhere, and faced with the works of the greats such as rachmaninoff, tchaikovsky, and others it feels like anything i write or play is pointless. should i stop this whole musical charade? its not going to ever benefit me. im just not talented enough. i've realized that ill never have the performance or composition ability of those around me

Ok... here's what's happening...

Ok… after a long time, I’ll start the first competition with this:
You need to compose a song in a 5/4 time signature. Nothing else, just this.
I haven’t seen many songs with this odd time signature, so try and get creative.

Due date: 30/4/19
—Prizes—
If you win, you'll get to be in the 'Hall Of Fame' (under construction, due to be open at 29/4) and the banner will congratulate you until the next competition.

Ok, if this seems like the RSA competition, I talked this with Rebecca... and I wanted to open a competition group under the RSA name... but since she already started a competition, I decided to start a seperate group. You can tell me if you have a better idea for the prizes. 


Don't be put off by some long, lengthy composition. A short one has an equal chance of winning as a long one (tho- not too long eg. 20 pages, because that's not fun- at all).

--Judges--
Due to the small (but growing) group, I'll take the first judge that offers, but cannot participate (because it wouldn't be fair, would it?). If you want to be a judge, you have to have messages enabled so we can talk about things. :D

Do you think EA will screw Jedi Fallen Order up?

EA has proven to ruin what could've been a great game multiple times. They don't make it as cool as they built it up to be. And in order to get the full gaming experience of something lots of times you're going to have to spend incredible amounts of money. Now with the release of the New Jedi Fallen Order game coming in November. I'm very skeptical. But EA is working with another company on this game, so I'm not sure how it will turn out. What does everybody think?

2nd:
G. B. Wanscher: Né'Alhru'unduun'yeh - Arrangement for Jay and Jhon's March Challenge

3rd:
Keystring Composer: Spring - The Awakening


Congratulations guys! Both of these pieces were amazing!

G. B. Wanscher, I loved your piece. Personally, it captured a spring thunderstorm which is what I love. Excellent work.

Keystring Composer, your piece was amazing. I loved that magical spring feeling that you obviously captured. Amazing!

Keep up the great work guys!

-Jay

G.B. Wanscher: Loved your peace! Although, the slow feeling didn't resonate with me with having a Spring feeling. Other than that it was great!

Keystring Composer: You captured a magical essence in your song! Loved it!

-John

Scissors Story

So this happened earlier today at my school. Basically, some dude in my grade took a pair of scissors, took them apart, and used them to attempt to stab 3 different people. The best he got was one of them was bleeding from the finger, but the point is that he didn’t exactly intend for them to leave in one piece. A few minutes later, where only the involved people have heard about this, half the school administration comes down to get him. From the rumors I’ve heard, he got 3 weeks of OSS and a Police Referral. Anyone had something like this happen at their school?
