Ok, so really, "smart" life planning is just how I've thought about it, and is by no means a perfect solution to the whole "what am I gonna do with my life" conundrum. But part of me still struggles to understand how people can be ok without some sort of direction in life - without some sort of goal in their head that they're working for. And then if they do have one, so often it feels like they've not really thought about how they're gonna get there, and are stuck on a completely different path.
But maybe that's because I think more about what I want to do than what I want to have. Most people want a big house, a car or two, big TVs, all the perks. I could happily live in a crappy hotel room as long as I was doing something I loved and it had wifi. When "have" is more important than "do", you've got a recipe for a crappy life spent in debt.

But then I'm just some random teenager with a comic on the internet. The hell do I know about this sort of thing?

You obviously understand more about life planning than 90% of the first-world population.

The "do what you're interested in" plan worked for me. Got me through A-levels, uni and got me a job I like. When I was younger, I did't know exactly what job I wanted, but I knew the field I wanted to work in, so just kept going with that and ended up doing something that works for me.

Yeh, one of the many varied reasons I'm doing animation is that drawing my comics still fits into it, except in animation they're called "storyboards". So I can keep doing what I'm doing now that have that be relevant.

And who knows, if I can turn my original comics into a revenue stream before I finish uni, then I may be able to go independent upon leaving uni.
