Hello friends! I've been bogged down lately with some things. And I just want some advice from anyone who might know what this is like.
I'm in college, a community college, I started here with the hopes of transferring to an art school after knocking out 2 years towards my bachelors. And I'm in the end of my second year, I could transfer potentially after this semester. I started out with the intention of going into Animation but I'm no longer feeling that path and now I just don't know what I'm going to do.
A lot of my classes and experiences really changed my perspective on a lot of things as well as drained a lot of my time.....
I'm a writer, I do poetry, and I draw comics, and I love story telling. I also love language, and culture, and people! I feel like I could do a lot of things, I just don't know where to go with it. Where to start. What kind of a degree does a comic loving, poet, who likes culture get?? Would i pursue illustrative art with some kind of minor in english? I want to be more involved in church ministry, is it even necessary for my to continue my studies, could i possibly just start independently pitching to various publishers?
I'm at a place in my life in which I feel I could go anywhere. Its very confusing, doors are there but I don't know for sure which one is mean't for me. I've been praying on it for quiet some time, but I suppose I'm in a place of waiting.
I've gotten a lot of inspirations, and ideas that just come to me, on how I could spread the Gospel through comic work and story writing. I feel they might definitely be coming from the Lord but I don't know when I'm meant to start on these projects. In what context? In what ministry? School is a distraction, I havent been able to truely sit down and draw or write in such a LONG time. I've also been an executive member in my schools creative writing club. And I feel its detrimental to my artistic growth. So I worry about my art. It gets to a point where drawing can even seem un-natural, I havent done it in weeks. I have my studies which arent very art based, and my work, and all these things going on while I'm trying to figure out where God wants me to go next when it seems I could go just about anywhere.
I'm scared my talents will become stagnant, I'll lose sight of what has been put in me. Or perhaps I'm scared they're being taken away from me intentionally. I can't comprehend the things the Lord is trying to do in my life. I want to serve but I also want to create. I want my drive to work back, but I don't know if I'm meant to at this point.
tired of school and very confused
would love Godly wisdom and input.
grace mercy and peace to you all
