If you had a choice of the ultimate job what would that be? Is that achievable for you? And if not are there are other avenues of being in that field?
Ie: some want to be a vet but don't have the marks or money and it takes years so perhaps an animal tech or a vet receptionist. That's what I'm
Do you want to join the air force? If so then it's worth it to wait. Unfortunately they are people just like others that screw up except in this case
it's affecting you. If there is a way for you to be on top of them and know what they are supposed to be doing perhaps you can just keep an open
communication with them, keep checking up your status.
There are lots of trades that pay good. Simply apply and work as an apprentice and make some good money. You still have to go for school but it's just
I think a month out of every year - that is if you want to get your ticket.
Ahhh, I just skipped forward a bit and see you love to draw. Keep up the drawing. This is your passion, without it you will feel dead inside.
Unfortunately I personally know too many artists who went to art school/university for art and then ended up having to take jobs that had nothing to
do with art just in order to make a living. Unless perhaps you can become an art teacher but again you have to go to school and learn other subjects
to teach (I think, I could be wrong).
You're so young, just 23. But unfortunately I have to say it is now up to you to make a life for yourself. I do hope that you find something that you
enjoy as when you hit 40 and then 50 all of a sudden you realize you have the young people to compete with who grew up with technology and going back
to school at an older age is usually not financially an option and with a spouse/kids/bills no time.
If you want to enter the military go for it but as others have said only join if this is truly where you want to be. You will become a puppet and
there are political games in there as well, not everything is cut and dried. And you are always at the mercy of being called to go to duty and for
some they don't realize the horrors of what they will experience and see and I don't see any veterans, whether in Canada or the States, that are
treated and compensated for in the manner that they deserve.
Let us know how it goes. I wish you all the best.
P.S. Your art is so detailed/colorful and wild. I like it!!
