I want to be my own boss.
I want to create my own schedule.
I want to write on my own schedule instead of having to write around the schedule of my meaningless but necessary job. It screws up my hours!
Then I get stuck staying up to 3 and 4 in the morning because I have an urge to express myself and get some emotion or thought out.
Here I am: exhausted, wanting and needing sleep but, also wanting and needing to write.
It’s difficult living an artistic life. But, I’m glad I chose it over some of the scientific fields I was interested in as a kid: astronomy, biology, geology.
I still really love the social sciences, though.
Writing and photography are my artistic loves.
I want the freedom to practice them whenever I want.
