I recently decided that the Creative Writing degree I'm going for in college right now just... it just isn't enough. I feel less like I'm earning a degree and more like I'm getting a participation trophy for spending 7 f#@$ing years at this s#@$. I'm sick of living my life halfway, being so gorram insecure about my abilities and my prospects. So to that end, I've got a lot of stuff I'm gonna be trying to do over the next few weeks. I want to start going to night classes and get myself a degree in computer science so I can program properly. For the next few weeks, I'm gonna be talking to some counselors about what I can do for that over the summer. Then when I get that, I can get a proper job programming, maybe even make my own game like I've been trying (unsuccessfully) to do for like 2 years. I also want to get a job driving for Uber to earn some money again. I want to monetize my Minds account and start earning some cash that way as well, though that venture's definitely gonna start out small. I also want to start doing Let's Plays. I already have one on my channel, but A) it's not very good and B) I want to do them as a regular thing. If my Minds account takes off and I start raking in some real revenue, or if I can get a Patreon running, then I can get some real financial independence. Finally, and most importantly, I want to start publishing my writing. I want to write novels for a living, and getting something good published is the first step. It's not going to be an easy time, nor will it happen overnight. But I can do it. And I want to.
