Follow Your Heart

<a href="http://www.megnut.com/2004/09/from-geek-to-chef">Meg becomes a chef</a>. She speaks the words my heart doesn't dare whisper, but I find such a striking resemblance to who we both are, and where we both are at.
I studied Management Information Systems at the University of Arizona back in 2000 because my mum casually mentioned that she wouldn't pay my way if I did English, which would have been something I wanted to do for the longest time in my life. I knew she didn't mean it, but the fear of not having an "economically viable" job scared me. I loved the word and I liked computers. I guess "like" would just have to do.
If you've been reading Tribolum for some time, you'd have concluded that I'm bloody idealistic. I've had a few people who left comments, basically telling me to suck it up, and that most people don't have jobs they like anyway. Even though the words were harsh, they were true.
I just want to be <a href="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0316769487/">The Catcher in the Rye</a>. Maybe that's why I identify with Holden Caulfield so much. We know what we want to do, but.
Thanks, Meg, for having the courage to go where many of us dare not tread. Thanks for being an inspiration.
