Anyone else dream of just waking up one day, quitting and following their passion?
I have always wanted to be an actor since childhood and always had some kind of talent for it, but never bothered to pursue it because I adopted the mindset my parents taught me: study hard, get good grades, get good job, have good life. I have many an acquaintance who did the stereotypical "fine art degree into fast food worker" path because they wanted to work their passion.
With some perspective, I really can't complain; I have a brilliant lifestyle that 99% of people would love. But the thought of not at least giving it a serious shot and going my whole life without trying is quite uncomfortable to me, despite me not having the first clue of where to start (the odds for success here can very reasonably be described as a million to one).
I know it likely sound ridiculous to many of you, but would be good to get some thoughts anyway.
