i am 27 years old and I am in search of finding career that will allow me to look at myself in the mirror and like what i see. I'm also in search of something/someone that will bring me some satisfaction, even if its only for 15 minutes (although that is a tall order considering that i find myself rarely satisfied). I want everything and nothing at the same time and i want to know someone who understands what that means.

now i will leave you with one of my favorite poems.

"Sonnet I" by Charlotte Smith
The partial Muse has from my earliest hours
Smiled on the rugged path I'm doom'd to tread,
And still with sportive hand has snatch'd wild flowers,
To weave fantastic garlands for my head:
But far, far happier is the lot of those
Who never learn'd her dear delusive art;
Which, while it decks the head with many a rose,
Reserves the thorn to fester in the heart.
For still she bids soft Pity's melting eye
Stream o'er the ills she knows not to remove,
Points every pang, and deepens every sigh
Of mourning Friendship, or unhappy Love.
Ah! then, how dear the Muse's favours cost,
If those paint sorrow best--who feel it most!*
