I just recently watched the Chris Rock Special: “Kill The Messenger,” and on top of cracking me up in fits of laughter it did make me stop and re-examine myself. He had a bit that was differentiating the differences between having a job and having a career and it definitely struck a chord within me. I mean I know this isn’t something completely new to me. I am currently working another job with no real future prospects at my current position and not really seeing a future for myself in the vocation I am doing. So what does the future hold for me? I’ve been asking myself since watching the Chris Rock Special.
I’m 31 and tired of the 9-5 grind. I would love to have a career doing something I love but what is it? I used to doodle a lot in high school and had childhood aspirations of being a comic book artist. While in college I did fancy myself a writer. So do I now have the chutzpah to pursue those dreams and make them a reality? I’m not quite sure. I will at least try to make a commited effort to write something on this blog daily. Even if it’s just a commentary on the latest viral video meme plaguing the internet LOL. Who knows maybe I’ll have a book idea to start on come 2009. Only time will tell. At least I’m also working my creative juices doing a semi-weekly podcast so maybe with these two creative outlets something will come out of it.
