So, I'm not sure what the heck I'm doing with my life. As of right now, I'm just flitting from one idea to another, avoiding reality (I know, I know). But some stuff is going down!
So, I do want to be a professor. I really do. I don't know if I want to go straight to my PhD (Which...may not be a great idea), or just apply to get my masters or whatever (The GRE is another hurdle, due to a myriad of learning disorders and other disorders blah blah blah). I don't even know what I would concentrate on (Ok, I do, but it's like...create your own thing, and the fields aren't even related. Follow your bliss?).
That was the setup. This is the good stuff.
I scored an interview with a really interesting person.
A detective. A. True. Motherfucking. Detective. In a major metropolitan city.
And last night I may have gotten the hookup to interview an ex-Mossad guy. How rad is that?
Sadly, the interviews are the closest I'm going to get to being an LEO. I have to watch on the sidelines because of a stupid fucking rare disability that I'm looking for a cure/therapy for. Thus, academia.
My hope for all of this is to get a 'portfolio' together. A few interviews here, a research project there, maybe smooth talk my way into conferences-not about law enforcement/criminology only, but also for detective novels and pop culture (Those are for real academic things! Especially Popular Fiction-Links to a cool PDF!).
I do need to live in the real world, but...I think that this could be an adventure.
