ever feel like you fucked up?
yeah I fell for the stem meme too, read my rant for a bit
by the time I finish my course, i'll be 23 and just as useless as when I enrolled, thanks- hopes and dreams of illustration shattered
meanwhile my inspirations, aged 22- already moved to japan to study art, now fluent, and getting more done, drawing/painting/animating more and improving every single day.
how do I get to the same level of success? how do I avoid the white-collar fate?
should I dropout before my liabilities fuck me over?
Drawing is the only passion I have and I wish I'd realised it sooner- I would want nothing more in life than to be in the same position, content with living low and training as an art hermit.
am I romanticizing the idea? Right now, I'm on a one way road to some specialized employment making someone elses' success- and there won't be time for freedom, travel and hobbies, only work and keeping face with normies
in this case I don't see myself ever having time for art until I'm 65 and retired with severe arthritis/parkinsons/dementia- and by then it's too fuuuuuuuuking late goddamn
and if I don't land a job, then I should've just pursued art in the first place with the money equivalent to my uni loan
