This is not me quitting, this is me moving on.
Though I doubt not many sane people would choose journalism as a “stable” profession, that’s what I did. I knew what I wanted, but thought it so far-fetched that I ignored it. For years.
I had my first idea for a TV show in 7th grade. The entire series existed in my mind, completely, for over a decade. But whenever I got close to it I found something else to do. Computer science; major in PR – no, video games. Video games PR. But that’s difficult to get into, so I’ll write first, I’ll cover video games in a thought-provoking way, to show studios that I know how to cover games. And THEN when I graduate I’ll start doing PR for them. The entire time cognizant of the fact that all I wanted to do was write.
I’m getting to the point that ignoring what I’ve always wanted is no longer feasible, and I’m no longer willing to do it.
