I am seriously thinking about a career change. I took Geography/GIS during college, and learned a lot from it.
However, I seem to have a problem with doing what interests me, and instead doing what I think I should be doing. I guess it comes from my quest of contributing something good to our world. I have lots of interests, but can't seem to put a finger on what I would love to do most, and still earn a decent living. My interests are as follows: *the Arts - dance, literature, art, music *Technology - computers, software *the Environment - water, mountains, animals *Children - ages 3-12 yrs old *the Elderly *Culture - learning about other cultures, especially indigenous people *Teaching - adults or children *Planning events/activities *Traveling *Helping the needy, or the poor Weaknesses: I do need to improve my social (relational) and advocacy skills. :) Are there any jobs out there that involve some or all of these things? I know if I'm creative enough I can integrate them all somehow. Any help would be appreciated!

But the only way in which you can contribute to others is by doing something that you enjoy. If you do something which does not make you happy the only thing you are going to contribute is you...

Start a nonprofit drama company that does plays about the earth's geography and environment at schools and nursing homes. Donate a percentage of proceeds to local charity organizations or where you think aid is needed.
