Hello everyone. Next Friday I am graduating and recieving my Degree in 3D Animation at Macomb Community College. Also last monday I got my first job at Burger King.
This sounds like an awesome thing no?
But then, why am I so down and depressed lately?
I hate working at Burger King. I cannot handle that kind of work environment where everything is going fast, and I'm absolutely terrible at manual labor. Also, despite me graduating with a good grade, in the media and communication arts field, you need to love what you do. I like 3D Animation, but I don't love it, nor do I play with it in my free time, like I should be. Nor have I made any connections in the industry to get anywhere, and I have no portfolio that I am proud of, and I fear I may have gone into the wrong field.
But I have no idea what I can do that would be productive that pertain to my interests (Videogames, anime, roleplaying, and typing on the internet)
I see people working full time at burger king and it frightens me to have such a life. I can't even stand 5 hours of working there, and the thought of me not getting anywhere of life is horrifying. I'm actually putting more effort getting a better job now than before I even had one.
But between this and the fact my college education free ride is over, I am very uncertain of the future and it has me scared shitless and I don't know what to do. I just wish everything could be like this forever, where I don't have to work, I'm happy with my friends, and family. But I know I can't do that, but sometimes it makes me want to curl up into a corner and hope it all goes away and things get magically better.
You guys here on Elliquiy are all adults and seem mature for the most part, so I thought maybe I could ask your advice or whatever?
Thank you for your time.
Also I should mention I've never gotten my license because driving scares me (I still drive but only with my dad who is retired, I have a learner's permit but am too afraid to get the license because of the freeway.) and I've been living at home my whole life and have lived a very comfortable and sheltered life, which is now biting me on the ass.
