Reading your essay makes me feel like I've gone through a meditation session, so pleasant.

Just curious: How has your life changed ever since you realized "What feels like fun to me, but work to others" and the other questions in the list?

Thank you anh.

The answer to those questions I think I have known a long time ago but refuse to accept them for I was busy doing what majority of my peers were doing.

I realize that it's not fun (and productive) for me to chase the work that I am not inherently interested in and good at. Now, I am more deliberate in prioritizing activities that I am genuinely interested in and try to develop those skills and knowledge as my "specialization" :) I am really happy with that decision.

Lovely! You’re wonderfully mature and self-driven for your years. I loved reading this post and your introspection on what drives you. Stay the course, pick and choose wisely from our current culture, finding your answers within and you’ll go very far. Wish you all the best.
