  1. I feel like I’m the only one out there that really enjoys a career in accounting. I like the routine, the numbers, and dressing up for the office. I do art in my free time, and I can do whatever I want at my own pace with no expectations from clients.

    Some people assume I must be a miserable artist in a corporate job, but other people think that since I’m a numbers person I must be a terrible artist. Oh well.

  2. …. meanwhile the tumbleweed dreams of putting down roots.

    …to live, is to be dissatisfied. Samsara is a thing.

  3. The intellect of man is forced to choose

    perfection of the life, or of the work,

    And if it take the second must refuse

    A heavenly mansion, raging in the dark.

    When all that story’s finished, what’s the news?

    In luck or out the toil has left its mark:

    That old perplexity an empty purse,

    Or the day’s vanity, the night’s remorse.

  4. any job that is perceivably better than other jobs will always be the one you’re not doing.

  5. I think that “winning” in life is about knowing how to mix the thing you love with something that you don’t love as much but gives you money.

    For instance, if the girl that paints work as a designer, she’s going to be doing something that she loves but not so much, but her life will be better 🙂

  6. You know, that’s one of the perks of public education. I decided to try a career in Film, which was always my dream. So far, it’s not working out, but that’s alright, I’m young. If it doesn’t pan out, I can study hard and take the exams to get into Law School.

    Of course, the whole reason I can do that is because I have a safety net in the support of my family, but having public colleges makes it that much more possible.

  7. I would’ve killed myself if I had stayed any longer on the stabler path.. the money isn’t fucking worth it, I’d rather die penniless.

  8. Years ago I had a stable job and I was kind of miserable. I got laid off and was actually happy about it. I got into freelance video production and documentary/indie filmmaking. I met interesting people, got to explore my city and travel to a few other cities and countries, including Afghanistan.

    I was creating content and it felt good. I also wasn’t able to pay my bills and after a few years ended up getting a stable job. I’m still here after a few promotions, working for a great company, making decent money, working from home with a great work life balance, and I’m so bored.

    There’s a balance to be found and I’m not sure I’ll ever find it.

  9. Getting a degree / cert that can grant you a stable profession and then following your dream with a solid backup plan is also an option…
