I was sitting in my computer programming lecture the other day and this conversation happened during break:
Me: "So what are you studying?"
Guy Beside Me: "Music Education."
Me: "Sweet! What do you play?"
Me: "Same here."
Guy: "Do you still play?"
Me: "Kind of, I had to quit lessons a few years back. I didn't have time to go further."
Guy: "School got in the way?"
Me: "Yeah, I went to an arts high school."
Guy: "For music?"
Me: "For drama."
Guy: "And drama's what you're doing now?"
Me: "No, I'm in Medieval Studies."
Guy: "And then you'll...teach?"
Me: "Actually, I want to be a writer."
Guy: "...So you're a piano playing actress historian sitting in an Intro to Computer Programming class so you can get your degree and become a writer?"
I forgot to tell him about how five years ago my dream career was toxicologist, and that my current fall-back plan is opening a bakery. And there's a lesson here, I'm sure. Something along the lines of not worrying too much if your passions change on you because you do have time. Mostly though, the lesson I take from it is, shit I'm glad I'm not the Identity Crisis type.
