Well, I'm officially unemployed

Journal Entry: Sun May 7, 2017, 12:38 PM


I handed in my Masters paper in March, and gave myself April to forget that the world was a real thing ( I hadn't had a break in two years it was terrible). 

However, I am now back from my lovely beach holiday, and having to face real world issues again. And I find myself in a weird scenario where I have to choose a career path. The thing with me is that I've got a wide variety of skills, but am severely lacking in others (absolutely any sense of design for example). I  can go down the path of animation. I can go into service design, or maybe brand management or looking at managing online communities. I can do NGO things or more corporate. And AARGGGGGGGG *manic flailing*. I don't know what to do.  My heart tells me that I want to work on doing character and environment design and stuff, working on movies or short films. But I know that isn't always practical, and money is something that I worry about a lot as I'll one day be supporting myself, potentially kids, and quite possibly my parents. Also, job stability is something that really appeals to me, so thats another concern.  I'm also scared of making art as a living causing me to stop doing it for fun. 

I did an internship as a service designer for a month or two, and to be honest, I really enjoyed the work there. Ok, well I got a lot of grunt work to do which was often quite boring, but the projects themselves were really exciting and I really enjoyed it. The problem with it, is that it completely lacks artistic flair (apart from possibly needing design skills, my one big flaw -____-). But that of course doesn't stop me from continuing to draw and work when I get home. And I did find the work exciting (ok again, the grunt work wasn't that exciting, but it was a part of a bigger project which I enjoyed).  

So I guess the question is, do I go the job in the arts industry route, or the job in the not at all arts industry. I suppose I could just apply to everything, and take whoever accepts me. It might come down to that in all honesty XD But I am me and will endlessly stress about everything ever. 

On a more art related note, I promise that the Reos art will eventually end ;D  I've been finding its high workload with short (and strict) deadlines to be a good way to stop myself freaking the hell out about my future and/or sinking into depression. They're also a nice way to practice narrative, new techniques, and kinds of composition. But, new subject matter will eventually return, I promise ;) 

If you made it this far, I'd also like to add that I'm still up for ACEO trades if anyone is interested.
