I mentioned in a post a few days ago that I often feel I am a jack of all trades and the master of none. I have many talents and I love them all. But at the same time I am struggling with what direction I want my life to go in. I love so many things, how do I pick just one to do? I'm a very one track mind person when it comes to things like that, almost to the occlusion of everything else. I have phases that repeat on a cycle.
I want to bake cakes for a living.
No, I want to work in community theatre for a living.
No, I want to be an administrative assistant for a living.
No, I want to act.
No, I want to sing.
No, I want to do techie things.
No, I want to teach. (English and History)
It's endless!! The one thing that is always there under everything is my love for ASL and the Deaf community, my husband and my desire to be a mom. So you would think I could be a freelance interpreter and a housewife. But no, I don't want to lose all the things I'm interested in. I want to learn everything I can about every one of those things and I want to learn about all kinds of other things. I just feel that I know so many things and I want to be so many things that I feel like I'm still a kid who has seventy answers to "What do you want to be when you grow up?"
Another option would be to do them all in a circular basis, but I want stability. And I want flexibility. I am distracted so easily!
Oh, look! Something shiny!
