Becoming an artist. I've been very close to saying f-it and just becoming a hermit living in the woods drawing/painting.

However ...

There's that money issue.

Anyway - In the beginning, I really wanted to go into Physics, but my writing was really really really bad and didn't learn how to write properly till college (which is what kept me out of those schools). I still have some issue with it, but I can look back the last few years and see an improvement.

I feel this one. In high school I developed a love for web design, which got me studying computer science. I nearly went the other direction and studied graphic design, but I also was concerned about making a career / stable income.

It's always good to hear that I'm not alone in having these worries.

In time I've realized I love drawing and creating in my free time, and not having the pressure of creating art / designing for money probably makes it more enjoyable for me overall.

This is how I view making art as well.

I feel this, so hard. Those thoughts are actually what brought me to starting this discussion.

Great ideas!
