...though I often play one in real life. The thing is, though I have expertise in many fields, I don't want to restrict my work life to a single field of expertise. I'm happy being a jack-of-all-trades-- but not a dilettante! I'm a writer, a singer, an actor, an engineer, a scientist, an artist. And I'm pretty damn good at what I do in all those fields.

It's not a matter of ability; it's a matter of motivation. I can do anything I want. And I want to do a lot more than I'm doing now. I just have to commit to that choice.

Sure, full-time employment is stable, but I don't get to pursue all my various passions. Corporate culture likes to label and limit people. I have an employee number, but I am not a number... (wait for it...) I am a free man! I'm not just a webmaster, and I'm afraid that my other talents will atrophy if I don't exercise them.

Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes are coming.
