Too often we get caught up with the routine life that society has set out for us. Live a little, do what makes you happy

This is why I started this Gathering. I studied Law and for the longest time ever I felt I had to prolong the misery and practice because I have this qualification. But then I realized no - I wouldn't be able to live with myself

Much as school and the academic route is not for everyone, very few are brace enough to risk and lose the stability of a permanent job

A day job is good to start off and establish yourself but 3 or 4 years MAX

I'd quit my day job if I could but having it is more permanent and practical. I want to go into writing but it would take a while and I need steady pay right now.

Day jobs are stable and practical. I'm sure everyone has their own passions but the fear of losing steady income stops us. One day when I have saved enough, I will quit and do what I've always wanted.

From that point forward the responses I've gotten have all been truly comparable. Individuals wondered about the way that I took this huge, extraordinary jump. I've gotten messages like Wow you're so overcome and bold and That's so extraordinary you're seeking after your enthusiasm and I wish I could work for myself.

Day jobs stop you from pursuing what you really want. Do you want a stable job that you hate or go do something you love but you don't know what's going to happen? Tough choices. I'm still at that cross road.
