It's a hard thing, you know. Being fascinated by, and passionately interested in, something that you have zero calling or vocation to be involved in.
(I have a vocation - several - and many interests which I also love but aren't what I am supposed to be doing.)
@rose_myrtle Quite the opposite sometimes. I've been fascinated by computers since the late 80's, taught myself to program, and have always kept an interest in them. By all accounts I ought to be a rock star programmer/computer engineer, but I'm not. I am almost exactly Zuckerberg's age. I still learn and keep up with computer technology with a passion that my friends who work in the industry have lost. Sometimes, when you love something, the worst thing you can do is make a living from it.
@daniel that's very true
