I'm still trying to decide what I want to be when I grow up.

In the meantime, I try to do something positive and something fun.

I never achieved my lifes ambition of becoming a Mens Room Attendant. Just think of it give out a towel and get a tip.

I also had aspirations of becoming a Pet Food Taster, but they said I didn't have a discriminating enough pallet. I just seemed to like it all.

So I just settled on not having to work and living the life of the idle rich.

point of life, lets see.
right now the point of my life is trying to get it together,
figure out the placement of my son and deal with all the negativity of my ex.
money, well, lawyer fees, child support and everything else has left me a pauper. only 17 years left.
i still have my loyal 911. I hope I can keep her, but it is not looking so good right now.
Life and living can break you.I realize that, as i get older and my web gets more and more complex I realize a simple web is the best one to weave.
I will try to change, being alone and silent is one way to cope, I have been this way for my entire life, I will become even more so.
The observer is the person who I will become.
I will keep my thought and desires to myself.
They are never satisfied anyhow.
Become like the buddha do not judge, observe and be calm.

Don't get stuck on the money - if you do what you love, and you do it well, then the money *should* follow...

This is correct. It is what I tell my daughters. John Walker has passion for what he does. He comes in on Saturdays to work on his car projects. Another friend of mine is Tom Nody (The Bubble Man). His job is blowing soap bubbles. He's been on the Tonight Show and the Smothers Brothers Show. He gets calls from professors doing research on bubble technology and shape efficiency stuff. He mostly just tours the world doing entertaining shows with soap bubbles.

Do what you love. Eventually, it will be both your passion and your work.
