As most of you guys know, what I want to do in life is to entertain the world with stories told through graphic novels. That would eventually be adapted into animated form. Part of would include writing and illustrating the stories....but lately, I've been questioning whether or not I'm really good at what I do. I mean, I'm 22 and I'm STILL living with my folks, I'm still attending college, I don't have a job, my anatomy still has a long way to go, and there are plenty of areas that I'm struggling in. Really, I'm struggling to really find my place in life...

I can't get a job at the moment, because it's near impossible to find one! Especially in California. Which is why I'm considering that maybe one day, I'll just live in Illinois for a while...As for College, I'm sorry to say that I'm struggling with that yet again. Basic Drawing for Entertainment Arts, sounds fun right? Yeah....except the homework aspect. You know how much the professor gives us? Up to 10 FULL PAGES. And by pages, that includes BOTH SIDES! Good grief! That's pretty much hours of work to do! And the worst part is...I might have to turn it in late because of what's going on the next 4 days.....Yeah I'm at the point where I have to make tuff decisions and sacrifices in life, even those that might effect how well I do in College. Basic Drawing has some downsides too. Apparently we switch between Newsprint and Drawing paper, and I have some missing work I have yet to do.....Yeah, College may not be as stressful and time consuming as High School....but it's still stressful and time consuming in it's own right.

Ya know, while I don't approve of MrEnter's attitude towards College and people who attend it, I can at least understand WHY he feels that way. Because does take a lot of time, and can really make you crack at the point where you feel like breaking down and crying. Even in art, you STILL feel the need of people helping you, and depending on the not be given that much support, it's mostly your own battle. Which I hate....and really, adulthood is even worse if you have a disability or mental disorder like it makes me wonder how other people deal with it. So do I think it excuses Enter's attitude towards College? (As well as shoe-horning the subject in his Satire video) No, but I can understand and empathize with him. But with that said, I don't think I want to stay in the same position he's in, OR AnimatedJames. I want to be one of those people that feel like they have a purpose. A purpose that shouldn't be wasted, and can impact millions upon millions of people. Heck, maybe even make THEIR lives easier. And if part of that means building up a College resumé, then I'll just have to fight for it.

But if art and writing isn't my true passion....then what is? Hopefully spending time with :icongiss-chan: once she arrives will calm me down, and give me the motivation to get through College life, find a job, and finally, give me the life I want...even if it means going through adulthood the hard way...

Hi, I'm an aspiring artist and writer. I'm hoping to start a manga-esque graphic novel series about the lives of people with Aspergers Syndrome.
