    I cannot conceive of excelling at anything without loving it… This strip makes no sense to me.

    I was great a school. one of the best. I flunked life. I work a minimum wage retail job because I was too good at everything in school to actually find or focus on an interest and so ended up very educated but almost totally unemployable, except at the most menial of tasks.

    I am very good doing what I do for a living. Can’t wait to retire and do what I love for fun. Only a few more years………………..

    Brutal honesty from a young deep thinker. Some responses here reveal a defensive posture and confirm the truth in the valedictory.

    This is not nihilism, nor cynicism. The speaker has merely been keeping notes.

    It is too bad the “right-brain” types of skills aren’t as valued in our culture as “left-brain” ones. If you excel at technical things, you have a chance at making a living doing what you like, but if your skills are in the arts, you will probably have a hard time making a living at that.

    That’s why I used the quotation marks. I know there actually is no such thing, but it has become something like shorthand for describing the variety in talents. I’m a technical type who also likes to do art. I know some very talented people whose abilities are mostly in the arts and have had a very hard time finding gainful employment doing what they love.

    Always follow your dream(so long as you have rich parents that can pay your bills).

    I know someone like that. He was hired to do nothing much by a large company because they were afraid he would work for the competition.
