Hey fellers, I'm gonna go on a bit of a rant, but I need to vent and I'm looking for some guidance, and GR has never steered me wrong before. I also don't know where I'd post this on reddit. I've been going through a quarter-life crisis of sorts. I really don't like my job, and I'm very much so contemplating a career change. To what? I'm not too sure. I feel like I have no motivation at all. About a year ago I started making a documentary on competitive video gaming (it wasn't going to be anything major), but I got wrapped up in work and by the time I had enough free time to make it, I totally dropped it and I have no motivation to start it back up. I really want to get into a career that challenges my mind more, where I can learn pretty much everyday, but I don't know what that is. I'm really into social justice and political issues, so I was thinking something related to that maybe, but I don't really know where to begin. I've heard enough people saying "just keep working, you won't find a job you love anyway". But fuck that noise, only people who hate their jobs say that. I saw a commencement speech (at least a short part of it) given by Jim Carey, and he brought up a great point. He talked about how he thought his father was the funniest man he'd ever known, but didn't pursue comedy because he wanted a stable job. After a decade, he lost that job, and his family struggled. The takeaway is that you can fail at things you don't want to do as well, so do what you want to do anyway (within reason of course, I'm nothing if not pragmatic). I seriously don't know where my life is heading. I don't know what I want to do, or who I want to be, all I know is that I'm not there now and I don't know where or how to start. I'm planning on going on a big trip in the winter (about 5 months, Nov-Mar), so hopefully that will help me clear my head, but I'm not banking on it. Does anyone have any words of advice? Really anything is appreciated.
