As long as I can remember, my fondness for animation dates back to being a child. I have always loved the cartoons on TV and try to watch them whenever I get a chance. I think cartoons were the main reason for me to start tracking time and day so that I don’t miss the latest broadcast (there were no DVR’s to record stuff back than…).
My recent move to States without job is stressful for me in every aspect. Be it family or relationships, communication, being social, personal growth everything is getting impacted. Adding to that, is my need and anxiety to find a job. With my last job, the freedom and independence I got, I am getting too desperate of a good job here and start earning. I want a job not just for money but my personal satisfaction too…To feed my creativity and be feel productive.
So, Today while watching another Pixar movie (watching animation is always stress buster for me) after the movie ends there were interviews and behind-the-scenes shots of the movie. They included the whole movie making process through director’s seat.
While watching library rented dvd of Toy Story, it just clicked that I love animation so much and deep within I always wanted to be an animator. But then the effort to clear GRE/GMAT(whatever is required to get admission) and applying for animation course or anxiety to change my line of work or say devote 3-5 yrs to build a resume in animation was something I always shrug my shoulder at.
However, Today I feel that spark, that urge to really aim for it, to see things differently, that it is just matter of me working for things I want to make happen. I can remain working as current profile and start gathering knowledge for my ultimate goal. Than maybe with money I earn over time and experience, I will be able to achieve my interest and land on something concrete.
Today I am feeling alive, happy and that go-for-it feel to work and prove myself that I can achieve what I desired.
I wish you all have the your dream jobs.
