I’ve come to realize that I am a man of many talents. It might sound a bit full of myself but it is true. First and foremost my job as an IT Professional is what I do for a living and I don’t see that changing at all. However, I want to pursue my hobbies that I’m good at. Photography, Videography, DJ, Musician, Blogger, Voice Recording and Racing. The thing is I want to focus on one of these things and make it my thing to do. I feel like I’ve been spreading myself thin on things I want to make vs. things I want to do.
Videography: I love going to places and exploring new areas and I usually film them. However, when it comes to putting together a video I lack the knowledge of video production. So I thought, maybe I should go to school for it? Many problems associated with that though. Time and Money are at the top of the list on this front. I could always go out and self learn what I need to learn but then time becomes the issue.
DJ: I love music. There is no doubting that but what I lack is gear and skill. I feel that I can put together great music and keep people happy with what I play, but I’m just a solo act that not many people have heard of or know. Gear is just one of those expenses that goes hand and hand with the line of work it is.
Musician: As much as I love music I do also love playing music as well. I’m Hawaiian, it’s what we all assume we can do. Kanekapila isn’t the same out here so I’m left basically playing with myself. (Get your head out of the gutter.)
Blogger: What is there to blog about now a days? I go to work and I go home and relax.
Voice Recording: I love talking into a microphone and talking up a script for a commercial. However, my voice only gets used inside of this building. Would be great to have a contract to record my voice and have my voice all over the place. It’s not that I love hearing my own voice, I just love going nuts in front of a microphone. :-P
Racing: Oh boy has this been a passion of mine since I was a kid. Problem is as a grown up you need to pay for the damages you do to your car and well I’m not ready for that just yet.
Photography: The first thing on the list. Something a lot of you know me for. Something I have almost completely fell out of. I haven’t had a passion for shooting in a long long while. Honestly, it might have something to do with the fact that I’m living in the middle of a desert. All the inspiration of the islands is nothing compared to what is out here. Maybe I need to find something out here to get me shooting again. Until then, I barely use my camera any more.
So the question is, what do I want to do?
