    Hey sweetie... I've been here waiting for you to return. You are not out of ideas Sprout wth? haha. Lots and lots and lots of ENFPs work (I actually like the info YUI has been putting forth...please check it out.)

    What do I do? Well, let me start by telling you what I don't do... I sure the hell don't count very, very small objects...the size of pills for a living. And my family...my supervisors...my community...they all feel extremely grateful to me for this small service I've done for them.

    My entire adult life I've worked in education in various capacities...and my ADD...or I should say...my lightening fast mind serves me well in this field. Likewise, I volunteer as a mentor for youth in the juvinelle justice system...all where there's little need for "attention to detail.". I like working with the big picture...that's just kinda my niche I guess.

    You are right when you say that all professions have some "attention to detail"... but it is definitely an issue of how much...and whether or not this is an "on demand/on the spot" kind of thing like it clearly is for pharmacy omg.

    For me, for other Pe doms I have known...the 'detail' aspect of their jobs can be 'saved for later' and done in more of a 'my own time' type basis...do you understand what I'm saying?

    Okay peanut I do need to go now...but I'll check back later. I really do feel that all that happened to you today was you learned something about yourself and your gifts. You've got gifts MQ. I personally wouldn't want them wasted by you standing in a lab coat counting pills. If today insured you may eventually have an opportunity to share your gifts with the world...then today was a good day.

    Today was a great day.

    Wow. You are doing exactly what I think people should be doing. That is rare. You are a wonderful, caring woman. Sociology, especially field research, seems fun, but there is also astronomy. I've loved the stars for as long as I can remember, and I am an advocate for dark skies. I lost a battle with a church who wanted to put a huge illuminated cross last year, and I miss the half of the visible stars I lost to the forces of light. I call them "forces of light" because they take away so much dark sky. What is humanity without the night sky?

My mother canceled that class and replaced it with study hall, because she thought the intructpr was goving me unrealistic ideas.
    Perhaps it is time to talk to the school about what you desire for your own education. You're 18. You can legally call the shots.

    My tablet keeps erasing what I'm trying to post! Apologies for repetitive edits.

    But, I like what Starry is saying, also.

    That was high school, and the animation instructor was called in by my art instructor because she knew I liked to write stories and she thought animation would be a good fit for me. Every other class, I would meet her friend. My mother switched me to study hall to put an end to that "nonsense."

    Now that I am in college, animation isnt offered. Only a bunch of courses I don't have any real interest in. I picked sociology just to pick something, really. I am going to have a bad life. I will only ever drain society, and I would do everybody a great service if I just died.

    I disagree. You will drain society if and only if you choose to drain society and you will cause a lot of sadness and pain if you kill yourself. You are a teenager figuring out his life. There is no shame in being a teenager figuring out your life. Shit, I'm 26 and most of my peers are just now solidifying their paths. You don't have to have the answers... You don't have to succeed on your first try... You can be a college kid!! This is the time to make mistakes and try crazy ideas and pick yourself up and try again and again. You have PLENTY of time later in life to give back to the world. Now is still the time in your life to be a kid and play in the life sandbox and make mistakes. Who, exactly, is telling you that you are doomed, and why do you believe them?

    Are you positive there is no animation at your school now? At my college it was under the umbrella of Multimedia Arts.

    In the meanwhile, I am going to continue compiling my list of friends' creative careers up there. Maybe it will give you some hope.
