Embracing The "Jack Of All Trades" Mentality

"Specialization is for insects." - Robert A. Heinlein

At a certain point, you want to be able to tell people what you do at parties. When you want to buy a house (or even rent an apartment), people in power are going to ask you to define yourself and prove that you are stable and consistent.

I am neither.

I have also come to realize that I don't want to be.

Yes I have worked consistently as an actor and producer. (At least consistently enough that a simple google search by a potential employer raises red flags). But Sometimes I paint. Or stiltwalk. Or GASP, maybe even try something new!

This is totally acceptable in your early twenties, but apparently; after 30 you are just supposed to turn off that light inside, become a cog, and occasionally reminisce about that crazy time when you actually lived your life.

I cannot do this.

I don't mean that as some sort of throwing down the gauntlet / middle finger to society.

I just mean that I am not capable of this.

And rather than beat myself up about this, or focus on my brand, I'm just gonna do shit that sounds interesting.

If I remember, I'll try to post about it.

I like to create things and solve problems, and I am damn good at it. But I am not good at routine. Projects need an end date, a deadline, for me to be interested. And after that, I need to move on.

I've enjoyed it so far, and I don't see why I can't continue to do this until I die.

So maybe, I'll post about a painting I've made. Maybe I'll take up beekeeping. Or photographing sharks.

I'm pretty sure that it will end up being a good time.
