I would probably be a writer of some sort. Either books, movies, tv shows, comics or graphic novels. Or I’d be a professor teaching humanities or mythology. Or I could be a travel writer. I would’ve traveled the world and written about it or traveled the world because of my novels or scripts or travel teaching, guiding students around historic places while talking about the myths and ancient stories dealing with them. I would be happy with a great flow of creativity with no defeating hesitation to pursue my goals.
