What's the general consensus on chasing a somewhat unrealistic dream around here? I've pretty much decided to go the direction of giving up on the route that makes sense (and guaranteed dollars) and instead trying to do exactly what the f@ck I want to do. Is that a stupid-ass decision?

Nope, that is not a stupid decision unless what you wanna do is take your talents to South Beach.

But on the real, just have a back up plan and a side job to fall back on.

I say go for it. I'm actually about to open my own sports blog I think. You'll never get what you want in life if you don't try for it.

Do what you want to do. Happiness >>> Money. Just make sure to GTFO of Maine.

To answer the OP. I've never really had an aspiration.

I live and Maine and, personally, I think it sucks. It's rated as the worst state for business and has high taxes. The state itself is actually beautiful, but the complete lack of work and GOD DAMN WINTER completely ruin it.

I enjoy learning and I'm an extremely hard worker with great focus when I have passion for something... but I've never had any passion for school whatsoever. None. Zero.

If my passion matched up with some sort of realistic career I'd be a bazillionaire by now.

I spent the first 15 years of my life in Bangor, so yeah, I know what that's all about... nope, I probably wouldn't want to stay there my whole life.
