I have always identified as a “renaissance woman” — I’ve adopted many hobbies and skills and interests over the years, and have no shame in saying that I have talent in those areas. But the saying goes, being a jack-of-all-trades often means that one’s interest is spread so thin that the result is being a master-of-none.
I take great pride in the things I’m interested in and passionate about, while at the same time I show great contempt toward myself because I don’t excel at what I started, or don’t finish a project. Because of my natural tendency to think about everything, my brain is really good at formulating ideas. But I rarely accomplish the task of brining those ideas to fruition.
I do think the many facets of my personality and my interests make me unique, and also make me capable of achieving a lot of interesting things. I love art, science, geek culture, music, etc. I want to be able to share my passion for these things in a way that is accessible for others so that they might learn something about themselves that they haven’t thought of before. I think being a jack-of-all-trades can be an inspiring way to live life. We don’t need to be perfect masters at anything. We just need to love who we are and love what we do.
