Just in case anyone actually reads this, sorry for the break in between posts. From working a weird schedule at work for a few weeks, enjoying the start of spring and feeling a little stumped with writing, I hadn't really thought of much to say.
Lately though, I've been trying to figure out what I want to do when I grow up. My current job is not bad and could be a fine career for me. But I am feeling like when I look back, much later on, I don't want to see endless days spent in a cubicle in front of a computer as the sum of my life. When in college, I thought being a travel writer would be an awesome job. I could see the world, experience other cultures, learn new languages and be outside. I have no idea how to go about pursuing this job and there is no set path. Probably being a writer first would be a good step.
Half of my problem in pursuing my dream is that I'm scared. I have no idea if anything I write would be any good. I was an English Lit major in school, I read books and wrote research papers, I didn't write anything creatively. Creative Writing. That probably would have been a better major choice, hindsight is always clearer.
I think the other half of the problem is that at this point in my life I finally am making enough money to support myself. If I totally switched career paths I would probably have to take a pay cut. Which I guess I could suck up and do, but I have bills and responsibilities... so do I want to?
