Creative industries are rife with survivorship bias.
Trying to make a living as a creator is a risky proposition. Taking on student loans is a massive gamble. Quitting your job to pursue creating can be disastrous.
Think carefully before you leap without a safety net.
THERE IS NO SHAME IN WORKING A "NORMAL" JOB TO SUPPORT YOURSELF.
It's fine, you're every bit the same amount of a "real" creator as the person who makes their money from creating.
Money does not legitimize you as a creator.
make 2019 ur fuckin' year, babey!!!
do things that make you feel loved and important
create things you've always wanted to create
stop letting a preconceived notion of how things "should work" stop you from doing the things you love to do
you can make this year into something beautiful if you just let yourself try.
