Last you all read my sob story about how Weezer's music was there to comfort me in my times of need, save me from depression, yada yada.

Now time for more life connections but now let's compare to my career choices, since this will prolly be the second longest of posts. I'll easy the pain and add other influences to this mixer so it's not all about Weezer. *start playing Beverly Hills at this point, maybe loop it*

I know deep in my heart of hearts that I belong in the "industry". Where I'd fit in it I'm not quite sure but I do I do. It all started off obviously when I was younger around 10 I started pursuing acting classes etc, extra work, did acting almost all thru high school, choir my senior year.

Just this past year in April I landed a good 4 month job as an extra in *shameless plug warning* Divergent.
Well one day on set we were just chilling, just finished filming and we were told to sit to the side in case we were needed again but they were moving on to a different scene.
I sat there and watched the big actors do their magic. I sat there an thought to myself "wow this is like the most Beautiful thing I've ever seen. And honestly I don't know what happened, but out of nowhere a flood of emotion came over me. Teared up lump in my esophagus kinda thing .

Well in June my Weezer obsession started with the free Woodfield mall concert they did. In august I got myself my snazzy tattoo, and in Ohio I found myself as what will go down in my history as the monsoon concert.

Well yet again something strange happened as I sat there in the pouring rain, cold , soaked to the bone, glasses all fogged up. Again that weird flood of emotion came over me. Lump in the throat that kinda thing. One of the most beautiful things I've ever seen.

In that moment I kinda acknowledged that I need to be in the industry either with music or with acting. I can really be wherever in it. Acting wise err film industry wise I would love to do movie makeup making the monsters all that jazz. Music wise I would love to make the music, like produce it I guess not sure what the technicalities are with that. But I mean it gets more deep than this too, but when you know, you know.

I guess maybe indirectly I was born into this?

This is an interesting topic! I've heard two theories on careers - one says to pursue as a career the thing you love the most, the thing you get absorbed in, lose track of time in, that sort of thing so that you end up earning a living doing the thing you love. The alternative viewpoint says that to make a career out of the thing you love can accidentally destroy your love for that thing -- that once something you love becomes a job, it isn't yours to do with as you will anymore. I read a great book, "The Element" - it talks about finding the intersection of your talents/skills and your passions and things people will pay you to do - so that you are in the zone. Good luck as you find your calling!
