Yeah, I'm nervous about that myself. I love to design, costume, sew, etc.but I fear ending up hating it and it being a JOB, not an enjoyable career, if I make my career out of it (I'm not in fashion school YET, but I'm currently leaning toward creating a subculture fashion line. And at some point, comissions either to help pay for college in my later years or extra income.)

Oh job talk.
I haven't had a job yet.

I'm considering trying to get one over the summer but I don't have my driver's license yet so I need to work on getting that first. Driving is annoying. v.v

EDIT: Also on the subject of making a hobby into a career, I actually am going to be an art major.
Mainly because I'm pretty much incapable of doing anything besides drawing because I either forget how to and have a panic attack or I just skip the forgetting part and go straight to panicking.
Yeah I get drawing homework and it's boring but it's somehow still fun at the same time??? Definitely doesn't feel like any other work I get assigned at least.

My problem is I like a lot of things a little bit, and I'm a little good at a lot of things, and therefore my job must by necessity be something bland and unchallenging that utilizes absolutely none of my useful skills. Thus I am a receptionist.

Do you work in a fucking palace? Do you guard the Space Pope?

I won't deny I'd be curious about running one of my ideas in a game --- but yeah, I also work in administrative development instead of games because I love my hobby due in part with the lack of responsibility attached to it.

IE: I don't need to work on Mortal Kombat LXXXIX because gorey shit is something that sells.

aaa I'm going to a lolita meet on Friday.

Due to the college bus schedule though I'm going to end up in NYC several hours early and I'm gonna be all alone in lolita and now I'm kind of worried that someone will be a creeper. :c
I'm gonna go to Nintendo World to waste time but that probably won't keep me entertained for like, 5 hours so IDK. I guess after that I could just look around places that are near where the meet is being held.

What, you think dentists grow up with an innate talent for grubbing around in people's mouths? Kids be sitting around practicing crowns and root canals on their Cabbage Patch Kids or whatever?

No, I don't, but I'm pretty sure Dentists can write reports without having panic attacks.
