There are so many artistic things that I enjoy and that I show talent in that it's hard to focus on and perfect just one. If I could, I'd be an actress-writer-singer-musician-artist-designer. I also think I'd like to study dance/ballet. That's one thing I've pretty much neglected thus far. Not to mention all my other interests I'd like to pursue, like rock climbing and ice skating and maybe yoga. How am I ever to become a master of one of these arts when there's so much I want to do? I wouldn't be satisfied with just one. But being just decent at a bunch of things doesn't really help one to stand out and build a career. And being a "triple threat" in musical theatre isn't really the direction I feel inclined to. I'd rather act in movies, and write novels and plays and films, and sing and write my own music for my band, and draw as well as some of the artists I've seen, and design and make my own costumes and clothes. And in my spare time? I'd have spare time? Well, when I retire I could build and run my own MUD. :P

Oh... I can sooo relate. I have to many interests to just pick ONE and really excel at it. *sigh* so I remain being a jack of all trades and a master of none.. and ya know, it's okay :) I never get bored. Best of luck to you on what ever you decide to do.

haha modesty is joke I see you agree. just joking :)
I find that the best way to tackle these decisions is by looking for something that does infact tie multiple areas together. like if you go down the musicial path, who says you can't write your own songs, plus you could draw up your own album covers as well. In theory you could also design your own clothing too, but realistically time is a factor. plus I assume musicians in a band need some dance moves or at least a sense of rhythm. Or ofcourse you could pick something completely different and dance could be what you do for exercise right? And your hobbies would clearly be to play music/sing and practise your art etc. hobbies keep life from overloading you with stress.

anyways good luck!

Ha! You sound like me. Too many interests, too little time, and not wanting to be a mediocre jack-of-all-trades, master of none type of person. We want to do it all and do it all REALLY WELL. Like the Celtic god, Lugh! ;)
