Do What You Love, Happiness Will Come

Small clock
Time flies when you do something you enjoy

I have been fairly pleased with my last weekend, which is now over. For a a change, I went out to a nice dinner last night and I also managed to relax as the workload is reduced (thank you, summertime). Yesterday, a journalist and author who appears in CNN, NBC and many other top-tier networks got in touch with me. We’ll see where it leads, but all in all, I am less worried about my future than I once used to be.

My worry is not associated with inability to work, but rather it’s about the possibility of no longer doing what I consider play (for a living!). My job at the University pays me over $40 a week for just 5-10 minutes of actual effort. It’s fantastic. How long will this last? We shall see.

For the time being, life treats me fairly well. I live a modest life, my spendings are minimal, but passion transcends and supersedes all else.

    Good to see that things are going well :)
    It must so incredibly full-filling doing something you love for your work and life. Being but 14, I still don’t know what I really want to do with my life. I hope that whatever I do, I will do it because I am passionate about it, not because it brings good money (although that would be a nice benefit :D ).

    Shhh…I wouldn’t tell them about this.

    Scott, I will sort of quit this job in September anyway, so I haven’t much to lose.
