Assuming we're on the "career" path here, what have you done before, man? Has what you've done before put you off even pursuing careers in the same fields. As you know, my career path looks to be a little hazy, but I'm just going to have to pursue the writing dream. If I don't I'd never be able to forgive myself (to cliche).
I feel for you, sir. I sincerely hope that you can pull through this patch, because it certainly seems that you don't deserve such a Hellish time.
I'm not too bad. I've resolved to avoid wasting the Summer Holidays. The trouble is, I don't know what I'm actually going to do. My exam results are delivered in roughly 3 weeks too, but that's something that I'm determined to avoid thinking about.
No problem, man. it was a stab in the dark anyway, and I got a few replies from those who have actually done this course, so it's not a big deal. How is life treating you, anyway? Judging by your comment, I'd guess "not great" .
Thank you so much - it makes a great change to have people backing my somewhat risky plans instead of damning them, telling me to follow a safer path. I have no intention of becoming another guy in a dead end job that he absolutely loathes - there are too many people like that out there already, and I pity them so sooo much. My plans - far fetched? Absolutely, but those old cliched adages come into play once again - "The quickest way to fail is not to try."
I have NO idea how well this whole writer/poet/novelist/bassist idea is going to go, but (to quote Claudiu), "to thine own self be troo \m/." I have to be honest with myself, and give it a shot, even if I do sink into the humdrum office job, I WILL give this a shot.
The plan for me is to write for a newspaper (the debates/headers - not that bland, talentless shit), with books and poetry on the side. Daring (and foolish...? ), but I seriously cannot see myself doing anything else, apart from playing bass in a proggy band, but that's hardly likely to put a roof over my head.
Being an artsy, pretentious fool can be a bitch, sometimes.
College/university is something which I have to consider at the moment as well. I'll probably be leaving home next year to study an English degree. I pray to God that I can make a living out of the subject/craft that I love, but in the current climate, such utopian ideas seem foolish...
If you were to go back to college, what would you study...?
