(I wrote this to a friend.)

Dear F,
Sorry that writing the fluff stuff didn't lead to more.

Non artists can't understand that writing something you don't feel passion for is DRUDGERY!
I can not even write a thank you card if I don't mean it! I get all weak and whiney like a 2 year old in need of a nap. hah ha.

If you can, find something you can feel passion for. I don't think the job around it matters, if it's fairly pleasant.

When I was a receptionist in the 80s I had Real Passion for real estate.
Cuz I wanted a house so badly! So I made a great real estate receptionist. But it would have bored me to do the same type of job for mutual fund companies or such.

Of course, you don't have to listen to me since the only work I can get lately is at a skin care cart in a mall! (very nice work, actually. you'd be surprised.)

I am uber passionate about skin care. I had HUGE passion for selling clothes but the pay was too low. But now I am working towards selling my own silver jewelry so learning cart selling is a good experience.

I just really wanted you to know that I totally understand if doing the NOT-WHAT-I-MEAN-BY-WRITING WRITING is dragging you down.

Each classroom and subject is different. You may still find a good situation like that with more fun and ooomph. A class YOU would want to attend.

Our band would play to some clubs and just fall flat!
Then later in a small coffee shop we would have people in the palm of our hands...

I have to agree with you! If a person doesn't have passion about what they're doing I think that lack of passion will show and a person won't be "successful" in that chosen job. As the old saying goes, "Do what you love and the money will follow." I also believe that every job we have is building skills toward finding our dream job. I look forward to seeing your jewelry.
