People who are generally in jobs they don't like or feel somehow incomplete in their lives. They always say, they wish they could do something that they love for a living. I have the wonderful luck to not only be doing what I love but becoming known and respected in the business. Yet I've run into a problem, well not so much a problem but a weird existential dilemma.
When I went into college, fully knowing that athletics was no longer a viable option after my shoulder injury. I had to make a decision...
By the time I graduated high school, through a special program in the twin cities. I had already completed all my college general credits and even finished my major in history. Then I had a decision to make, what to go to graduate school for. Between history and film I chose at the time what I had more passion for. Thus I got my two degree in my chosen field and luckily have found great success.
Now though, I find my personal interest kind of waning. I still find fun and interest in what I do, but I've lost some of the passion and personal interest.
I'm finding when I'm home or I have free time I really don't watch movies or even write. I go off read a book on history, look up history and all kinds of history related things. My hobby is collecting ancient Roman coins for gods sake.
So a part of me wonders if I made the right decision, or if I would be in the same situation if I had gone the other way.
I know this sounds like a privileged person person complaining, which it is, but the back of my mind always kind of wonders. I have done one thing, I have taken a few classes and could technically through weird college credit transfers, get a bachelors in ancient history.
It might sedate the bug for awhile...
