I'm going a bit loopy over the One Thousand Thousand project. I'm too close to it and constantly work on it and I'm making myself colorblind in a way. Like how working at a bookstore kind of made me uninterested in reading in the same way I was before the job. Or how working in a bar made me stop drinking. It feels like when I'm entirely surrounded and immersed in something I get numb to it and lose interest.
is why i decided not to study baking (bread).
did not want to lose the magicwonder

Agreed, I often have the same situation
except when i worked in a record store, i loved records even more and just loathed working in a record store.
This has been one of the things that has seriously held me back. I have so many passions and talents and I'm terrified of them being completely ruined by doing them for a "living". The fear completely immobilizes me.
AAAAAND Jason still exists. Hola from Manda. Yeah, I have the same problem. Turning something into work kind of sucks the fun out of it. BUT-- that's only temporary :)
