I'm sorry...Multi-what?

Party Light - 8x10 Print $35

I just thought I had ADD.  Apparently there is a term for people who can't just keep doing the same thing forever without getting bored. 

Multipotentiality:  "An educational and psychological term referring to a pattern found among intellectually gifted individuals. [Multipotentialites] generally have diverse interests across numerous domains and may be capable of success in many endeavors or professions, they are confronted with unique decisions as a result of these choices."-Wikipedia

Then again, that definition says "intellectually gifted" and I am not sure I fall into that category anymore, since my brain has become a sieve.

Back when I was in school and trying to define myself, I first thought that I would be a violinist and go to conservatory back east, but I couldn't wrap my brain around committing my life to only playing the violin.  Then I thought about culinary school.  Hey, I loved to cook and bake and play with food.  Once again, the thought of only doing that, stifled my resolve.  This scenario played out through many other professions until I decided on teaching and then flaked out of college only to come home and start a photography business. 

I find it interesting that there is an entire community out there of people who may see the world similar to the way I do.
