Have you come to a point in your life.....when you are sitting in your room...and you look around and the idea of...."what I have accomplished?" popped into your head...what do you think of?
I can say I have done a few, but to be brutally honest....I haven't accomplished much, but I haven't accomplished what I wanted.
I know I have alot of talent, but what I am doing with it? I am not getting far in life, and its really starting to make me very sad, I am almost 34 and I haven't done anything I wanted to do. I want to become a successful artist, work for a big company and sell some paintings that people will love.
but its more than that...its come to a point where I have decided to got back to college...to a real college and get my Bachelor's Degree in animation or illustration. When I go to look for work in the big companies, my associates doesn't cover worth crap...and they won't even look at you if you don't have bachelors let alone the knowledge...I was having this conversation with my mom and she told me that she would hate to see me in debt, and to be honest I would too..but I will have to bite the bullet and do it.
Mom told me I could get a job as a secretary and go to school to learn something that will make real money.....I know she is looking out for me..but at the same time...it kind of irked me. She means the best, but its saying that my talent isn't worth crap here in the real world and that I won't make any real money if I succeed on becoming an artist. I know my mom means well..but it still bothers me.
have anyone here have that kind of thought process? are you thinking about going back to school but are scared of loans and payments?
