Am I asking too much? Is there a way for me to realign what I want out of a career, even if that means being okay with picking up other people's lunch every day until I die? At what point should I admit that I am not a strong enough writer to make it a career? Or do I just need a thicker skin?
Here are two fictional women who are the same age: Blanche DuBois:
And Jessica Day:
Blanche, you may or may not recall, is the star of Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire, a play from 1947. She is a thirty-year-old schoolteacher. Jessica, you may or may not be aware, is the star of Fox's The New Girl, a television show from right now. She is a thirty-one-year-old schoolteacher.
