I can sort of relate. I'm a radar technician, which means I have to work in logic, what is and is not, with very few gray areas. I love it. I'm good at it. But I still love to draw, to write. I love to express what I feel because I understand that no one else feels it exactly the same way as me.

But there are plenty of times where my brain just gets stuck in technician mode. I can't write, I can't draw, and all I want is to dig into one of my tech pubs or poke around in the system. At times like that, I start to feel like I shouldn't have become a technician, that I'd be happier if I were just one or the other, but it helps to have a working knowledge of truths and non-truths. I swear it does. It makes the art I create, crappy or not, reflections of myself that much more because I can clearly define myself as both.

I don't know if that helps at all or if you even want something to help (sometimes it feels better just to vent and let it go), but I hope you manage to work things out for yourself. :heart:

I myself am a recent CS (computer science) graduate that will probably make a career out of programming. Personally, I enjoy logic and that feeling of, "Hey, look what I made the computer do!" If you're good at logic, all the more power to you.

And yet, I'm also an artist and a writer. Despite the part of me that's good with logic, I still have an imagination that I refuse to stifle. Having a programming job doesn't mean you can't express yourself! Please, if you feel inspired, draw. Write. Sculpt. Doodle. Take notes if you're busy. Whatever. Even if an art career isn't feasible, let yourself do whatever you want to and can in your spare time. Be a creator. Let yourself practice. Enjoy your hobby, whatever it may be, and when you feel you're good enough you can pursue further education or a career in it should you so desire. Whatever you do, don't let your dream be crushed.

The best of luck to you, friend.

I'm studying to become a programmer too and It was always my SECOND passion.
Before I started my dreams were all about writing. Books, stories, poems... I still love it so much. But the truth is that writing is not so payed profession (in my country situation with literature is terrible), u can't earn much money if u are not popular and very-very lucky, even if u are talented. So, I always had to choose mathematics and algoritms instead of my lovely fantasy things. Sadly, but I understand u in some way.
Also I have to say, that anyone in the world can't stop you, if you want to become an artist one day. I still remember my dreams. I still write.
And you don't give up. Try to shut up your logic and listen to your heart.
And sorry for my bad english anyway :) Good luck!
