However, I just joined Lookbook, mostly because I like the descriptions of the different people on there in the space they put under occupation. Aspiring photographer, rogue and native fox are some examples. This caught my attention, and since I generally follow my whims, I joined as well. Someone had titled a look 'Galactic Warrior' which I wanted to use as my description, but decided against as I am neither a warrior or particularly galactic (it'd be pretty cool to have a space look though - I was just watching a sci-fi themed episode of Castle which made me wistful for sci-fi, comics and cosplay). Instead, I figured that jack-of-all-trades was probably a better description of me. I leave you to work out why.
I don't know how common it is to be like this. Often teenagers tend to jump from thing to thing during high school, which I think is normal. Most people I know have some kind of direction at the least, though. Like "I'd like to work with children" or "I really want to be married and have two kids and a dog" or "I want to be a doctor of some kind". Generally the strongest direction I can get is "well, I guess I'd like to be alive". And that's not always a constant. Are there many other people like that? I know there are probably some, but I always get the feeling it's not the norm.
If I sound like I'm complaining, I'm trying not to. It's a part of me that I'm learning to accept and trying to not be so hard on myself if I lose interest in things. It's also something I cannot afford to let run rampant, however, because it can cost me money, reputation and friendships. Being fickle can hurt people and that's something I really don't want.
This post is getting long, so I think I'll do a part two and show you all some of the things I've taken up as hobbies or considered studying/getting a career in. Perhaps I'm destined to find my passion through the process of elimination haha.
