Idk how to tell younger "aspiring animators" with like 10+ OCs and intricate story lines and lore that they most likely don't want to be an animator and that they probably want to be a writer or a storyboarder but I'm not sure they know that those jobs even exist!
I took my first traditional animation class in college, aced it, and made some cute stuff, but at the end of it realized I HATED animating and I really just wanted to tell stories lol. I had no idea boarding was a thing!!!!!?
I'm not and would also never say that you can't do more than one, I just think if more students knew what other jobs there were to pursue in the animation industry they might pursue those instead🤦🏽‍♀️
Once I realized animation as a job has nothing to do with creating stories and more with executing them instead I realized I wanted to do something else but not.. Animate and I had no idea what it was that I could do until I learned about boarding!
Also I don't know why I have to say this but aspiring animator is in quotes because you are one until you realize you... Aren't haha! Then it becomes something else!

Getting your dream job in your dream studio and then moving thinking that this would be over early 2021 and you’d be in office and living 4 minutes down the road from said studio and having it essentially taunt you with a stable work life balance is killllling meeeeeeee
I could go to work in an office!!!! It’s RIGHT THERE!!!!! IT’S RIGHT THERE!!! But I’m stuck!! IN HERE!! Working in the same place I live is the most draining and unhealthy thing for me and I’m an introvert :( I just can’t do this!! It’s getting so hard!!
I know that I would actually look forward to work if “work” wasn’t in the room right next to mine :(
