They were right...
I'm DJing for friends on the 17th. There is almost no way I wouldn't do it. It's for friends. DJing is one of my favorite hobbies. The parties are almost always fun for me. I'm meeting lots of cool people. Why wouldn't I do it!? They then offered to pay me. What? Why? I realize that they appreciate me DJing for them, but I don't want it; I won't take it. Not from friends, at least. I'm realizing how tough it is to tell people how much you enjoy something and any financial gain is either not needed or unwanted. I'm not saying any of this to make myself look good, but I'm saying it to show that as you get older, you find things you like to do just to do them.
Thus why "old" people have always told me that for a career, you gotta do something you love to do, regardless of the money you'll make. I think I understand now. They were right.
