Erin, I really enjoyed this blog entry. Right now I'm going through a similar change where I am working for money right now and also going to college to get a degree. What I really want to do is become a writer and maybe a speaker. I also love doing stand-up comedy. Right now I am trying to get a math degree so I can teach and get a steady job, but I know that the creative part of me will go insane in that confounding public school system. I just feel so much more fulfilled when creating a piece of literature or writing a joke than doing math equations. If it weren't for my family pushing me...but that's not an excuse. It is my life and I'm sure I will get it where it needs to be. I have faith.
