I've come to accept recently that my situation sucks. I make a decent amount of money - enough to live on with some left for play, but nothing spectacular. I will doubtlessly earn more money as I spend more time at my job, but I don't see my earnings growing very far. The job itself is OK. I won't go into details, but it's decent. There are certainly worse positions to have. However, I don't want to just "settle". I'd hate to spend another forty years here simply because it's easy. My heart just isn't in it. In the last day or so I've been seriously considering going to Full Sail. I've dreamed of recording and producing but have never taken practical steps towards it. Making this happen would require me dropping everything in my life and starting over. I'd have to liquidate pretty much every non-essential I own (and maybe a few essentials, like a car), move 1500 miles and go into a ton of debt (loans and such). Needless to say, the thought is exciting but very scary. I'm a financially established adult, and I'd have to give up all that security to do this. My family can't help me beyond moral support. I know that I have to get off my ever-widening ass and JUST DO IT, but the possibility of risking it all and losing is terrifying. I don't know that I can expect any advice, but I needed to "talk" about it. If anyone's been in my situation and wants to encourage me, that's fine.
