I want to make films full time. I want to tell stories that inspire people and give a personalable yet relatable perspective on life. If I could do this full time. If I could I would be living the dream.
My life is very rewarding (but I kind of want more).
I am content with my life. I am truly blessed. I have a wife and a my first son that is due in early August. I have a full time job and am now understanding how valuable it is to be able to support a family. Its sick!
I don't want my contentment to box me in.
I want to learn to hold contentment in one hand and ambitious zeal in the other. I am happy with my life as it is, but also excited for what it could be.
All these thoughts swirl in my head because I have been toying with the idea of going back to school for my Masters. I feel like this would allow me a few opportunities. First I would get to meet a whole slew of people. I love collaborating, so meeting new people dedicated to telling stories is a must. The obvious benefit is more training by people who are very skilled. I also would like to teach at the university level some day (after a bit more experience).
I have a few questions in closing:
- Where did/do you go to school?
- How do you "live the dream"?
- Any tips for me?
