I May Not Know What I'm Doing, But Cool Stuff Is Happening!

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.
