Mind filled with career choices.. - August 27th 2009, 04:18 AM

My mind is overwhelmed with all the careers I am thinking about. I have thought of almost every single career in the past year and next year I will graduate. I'm having what I have had lately, is a few months of wanting to do something, and right now it is acting. I absolutely love movies, drama, everything. I never have been in a play though, and school plays can be kind of lame. I want to be in something I would like to see myself. I also lack confidence until I'm comfortable. I have looked at scripts and thought of how I myself would act and I think I would be good but I don't know how I'd act around other people on the stage or set. :/ I'm so full of ideas for careers it's kind of stressful.

It's great that you're looking into your dreams! However, I'm telling you now not to get stressed over it. You have your whole life ahead of you! There's people out there who change careers as easily as they change their clothes.

And I agree, school plays can be kind of lame, but it shouldn't stop you from auditioning. I've been in many lame plays, but being in them wasn't lame at all. Fun actually. Plus, you have more experience under your belt as well as the opportunity in making connections with all the thespians, directors, etc. It doesn't hurt to try. And if you don't like acting, at least you know that rather than sitting and wondering, right? There's many other ways you can get involved in movies and drama: writing, directing, media advertising, possibilities are endless. You don't have to pick your lifelong career right now, obviously, but try your hand in everything you're interested in while you still can.

You can lose yourself. Everything. All boundaries. All time.

And just when the sweet confusion is so intense you think you're gonna die... you kind of do.

Leaving you alone in your separate body, but the one you love is still there.

That's a miracle.

You can go to heaven and come back alive. You can go back anytime you want with the one you love.
