That was just the reality in those days. It was hard to see a way to make a living creatively then. Now that the internet is so ubiquitous, and tons of opportunity exists, a lot more kids are going for their more creative dreams.

I have a similar story of giving up on my dreams, but now I’m on a mission to take them back.

Thanks for the inspiration, John! 🙌
