Yes. Before I usually wanted to separate one from the other (ie. didn't want that people knew I did photography). Nowadays I'm opening up and let parts of each "character" overlap.
I am a 18 year old business student.
In the core I feel a traveler, adventurer; curious and loving to stroll around. Transportation media and photography get integrated in here. My father loved to travel and he did, a lot. I think I inherited that character.
Also of this I love to listen and enjoy music and as a private moment. Not hear, LISTEN (unlike many people do nowadays). When I put the music on the stereo, I dislike having anyone around, that's a private moment.
The above is what I feel about my creative side.
At college/university, unlike work; the environment is rather different (friends, classes et al). I enjoy the times with my friends there however in some sense I feel I'm not quite relate to them and there are things that drive me crazy. I happen to be in a quite good university, very demanding... Many of the people are well off and very ambitious.
Add in the stress of studying, essays and exams.
Really agree, in my summer holidays I happened to do much more family life and adopted a different perspective.

Quoting one of my friends there: "This is why I study business" (pointing to a luxury car). I am sorry, but I disagree and if that is the end of what I'm currently doing... NO. It's the opposite of what I feel are my values. So I learnt how many people can't position themselves in someone else's situation and how one should be True to him/herself.
And I agree with you Thomas. For me Photography, Travel and Music are my Insanity Asylum. I could take example of you because I am a few steps below of where you are, in a career sense.
Sorry for the rant
A family friend told me once that I can be both a humorous, happy, witty and "loose" person but also serious and professional; She is a phycologist and said this is great. When I feel quite comfortable I let loose the former.
