    I'm currently an essay-writing tutor (and a full-time Secondary Education/English major). I mostly like tutoring. I like fiction writing more, but I was kind of fascinated by all the nuances of essay-writing growing up and pondered it a whole lot, so it's nice to have a place where they pay me to do it, lol. And it's taught me way more about teaching than I've ever learned in education classes. I'm also considering staying with one-on-one tutoring after graduation but just getting a better-paying position. It kinda sounds better than dealing with things like the behavior problems of 25 kids at once, pressure to teach to standardized tests, and dealing with rigid, micromanaging bureacracies in addition to actually doing the act of teaching.

    The other problem, though, is that I don't actually believe that the traditional essay that's normally taught in schools (especially the "five-paragraph" variety) is conducive to helping the majority of kids accomplish the purpose of writing in the first place.

    I do want to have a position that ultimately deals with writing, since that's my main passion in life that I'm able to do, but I can't see myself teaching the traditional essay forever. I think my dream teaching job would be teaching creative writing. Maybe I could eventually do editing or actual writing or something like that.

    That's awesome! I hope things work out for you

    My second choice after my passion for music would be research in neuroscience or some biological science.
    That's a switch!

    Thanks! I hope that you'll be able to get the kind of teaching/tutoring job that fulfills you and also be able to write. What kind of fiction do you enjoy writing?

    In school my second best and favorite subject after music was science, particularly anatomy/physiology and biological science related courses. I love to read about the subject of neuroscience- papers, articles, books... it's fascinating. There's also actually a lot of really interesting research about music in neuroscience.

    In an ideal world, I'd be a writer. I study sociology atm. Thinking of switching to biology/neuroscience. Research would suite me the best.

    Just found this thread, thought I'd resurrect it.

    My day job is---an elementary school teacher.

    On weekends, holidays and at night---painter, author, artist, public speaker and self-defense instructor

    I love what I do.

    I help make a difference in the lives of little kids who will one day become adults. I promote literacy through my writing and I promote an appreciation of the arts through my painting. With martial arts I promote spiritual awareness and a healthy lifestyle. I also teach people to stand and fend for themselves and their families.

    I like the person I see when I look in the mirror. I like her because she isn't afraid to discover who she is and she isn't afraid to help others discover who they are, too.

    I just quit my job at a fast food place. I want to move to Hollywood and try to make it big as a screenwriter. I know it's highly unlikely, but it's the only thing I'm passionate about, at the moment.

    @, Vintage clothing dealer sounds really cool and kind of fun.

    @Calbyr,

    It sounds like you are following your bliss. I say go for it. Maybe learn everything you can about screen writing.
