Welcome to another episode of Dear Krachel, our monthly advice segment where we answer listener questions about life, career, relationships, existential angst, and anything that helps you become a more whole, fulfilled version of yourself.
This month we answered questions from:
- Leslie, who’s interested in an array of potential careers from HR to wedding coordination to photography to therapy! She’d like to follow her curiosity and explore them all, but she doesn’t have infinite time, money and energy. How can she scratch her curiosity itch without making a big commitment to anything?
- Positive Perseverant, who has done all the personal development — coaching, counseling, networking, reading — but found herself at the end of 2021 still single, still in the same job, still waiting on life to change. What else can she do when she’s done all the right things and still isn’t getting results?
- Dreamer, a Canadian who took a high-paying job at a tech company in the U.S. while her green card application is processing. It’s what most people would call a dream job … but she’s burnt out and miserable. Should she quit and go back to Canada, or is it worth it to stick it out?

I have a suggestion for Leslie, and maybe this will be of zero interest, but have you ever thought to try acting? You could start out at a community theater; they are super chill. One of the things I love about it is that you get to play a different role and explore in each show you are cast in. Even if you’re not on stage, there is so much variety of tech/production work in theater and film. They all need photographers, too.
