i want a show called Man Vs. Wilde where someone is put in the jungle with oscar wilde and has to survive not only the elements but also wilde’s random attacks and massive ego

No. 

Mann vs. Wilde.

Thomas Mann’s pretensiousness and sexual repression vs. Oscar Wilde’s sarcasm and blatant queerness.

Give it to me.

This is literally so inspirational to me right now.

BE CAREFUL!The pursuit of what you love for money can actually *kill* your love for it. It’s happened to me one too many times.You can still pursue what you love without needing it to be your main income source, or the only thing you do with your time. And realistically this advice can only apply to certain swathes of privileged demographics.Don’t feel downhearted if you end up having to choose survival and money over 1000000% PASSION FOREVER. Do what you need to do.

Agreed. While I support and respect and adore people who make their passion their main source of income, I also support and respect and adore people who have a job that isn’t their passion paying the bills.
You don’t have to monetise your passions. You don’t have to love your job with all your heart. Finding a way to balance jobs and passions is hard, but needing to do so doesn’t make you a lesser person.

When i was in high school, everyone assumed i would be a music major in college. I knew i couldnt be, because i would grow to resent the craft rather than let it be my passion.
Today i perform for local theatre with makes me a little money, and wi th a community band which meets weekly aand fulfills my need to make music.
I get this post.

When I was little, doing experiments is literally my favorite thing in the world. My love for discovery turned into passion for research, which brought me into the world of academia, where my passion was promptly killed by the “publish or parish” mentality and emotional abuse from my supervisor. I started resenting the scientific process and my integrity for doing the work properly.
After I quit my PhD, while I was deciding what to do with the rest of my life, I decided to turn my passion for graphics design and writing into a career. Good thing I hadn’t planned on it being permanent, because making my hobby into a job almost killed my passion for the written and graphical arts. My already spirally depression didn’t need that, let me tell you.
Right now, I’m trying to gain back my passion for discovery by learning new things while I go back to school, and nursing my passion for writing and graphics into health by doing it in my spare time working on things I enjoy doing, like fan work. I think I’m slowly getting them back. I might even get back into doing some original work on the side at some point, because I can, not because I’m forced to.
If you are able to make your passion and something you love into a career, by all means, be awesome. If you need to hold down a job you only enjoy but isn’t passionate about and only do what you love in your spare time because you need the money, that’s okay too. Everyone is different, and no one person has the right to tell you how to live your life. knitwritezombie:

My love for discovery turned into passion for research, which brought me into the world of academia, where my passion was promptly killed by the “publish or parish” mentality and emotional abuse from my supervisor. I started resenting the scientific process and my integrity for doing the work properly.
After I quit my PhD, while I was deciding what to do with the rest of my life, I decided to turn my passion for graphics design and writing into a career. Good thing I hadn’t planned on it being permanent, because making my hobby into a job almost killed my passion for the written and graphical arts. My already spirally depression didn’t need that, let me tell you.
Right now, I’m trying to gain back my passion for discovery by learning new things while I go back to school, and nursing my passion for writing and graphics into health by doing it in my spare time working on things I enjoy doing, like fan work. I think I’m slowly getting them back. I might even get back into doing some original work on the side at some point, because I can, not because I’m forced to.
If you are able to make your passion and something you love into a career, by all means, be awesome. If you need to hold down a job you only enjoy but isn’t passionate about and only do what you love in your spare time because you need the money, that’s okay too. Everyone is different, and no one person has the right to tell you how to live your life.

Inspired by every student whose told they can’t be an artist because it doesn’t “make enough money”.

This is literally so inspirational to me right now.

I needed this really badly right now.

Thank heaven in earth

BE CAREFUL!

The pursuit of what you love for money can actually *kill* your love for it. It’s happened to me one too many times.

You can still pursue what you love without needing it to be your main income source, or the only thing you do with your time. And realistically this advice can only apply to certain swathes of privileged demographics.

Don’t feel downhearted if you end up having to choose survival and money over 1000000% PASSION FOREVER. Do what you need to do.

Agreed. While I support and respect and adore people who make their passion their main source of income, I also support and respect and adore people who have a job that isn’t their passion paying the bills.

You don’t have to monetise your passions. You don’t have to love your job with all your heart. Finding a way to balance jobs and passions is hard, but needing to do so doesn’t make you a lesser person.

When i was in high school, everyone assumed i would be a music major in college. I knew i couldnt be, because i would grow to resent the craft rather than let it be my passion.

Today i perform for local theatre with makes me a little money, and wi th a community band which meets weekly aand fulfills my need to make music.

I get this post.

When I was little, doing experiments is literally my favorite thing in the world.
