Go for it!  But realise that its not going to be easy and things take time and there are LOTS of sacrifices to make. Also make sure you learn from your mistakes - because you will make them. It is really only a mistake if you don't learn from it.

Creative?
Creative 
Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

So you want to be an Astronomer

Astronomers, are those who make observations, examine reams of data, and help inform scientific theories to enhance our understanding of the universe.

Astronomers may choose an area of specialisation, because space is so vast. Some astronomers may choose to focus on black holes, for example, while others may specifically study planets. Their work may often involve working at night – when conditions are better for observing space – and they can work with ground-based equipment (such as optical telescopes) and equipment in space (such as the Hubble space telescope).

Some astronomers use their expertise to develop new devices and practical applications, as well. Therefore, their employers can consist of colleges, universities and the federal government. In general, astronomers work in an office and/or observatories. They will have a solid background in maths or physics.
