I think in the end, self-driven people will go that extra mile, regardless if they're in school or not. They don't expect to get knowledge and skill handed over to them in a silver plate. Just jump right in and keep at it.

Unfortunately, picking a university, expecting quality education, it's a hit or miss thing. Awesome professors can come and go. Well-intentioned teachers have that problem of encouraging unmotivated students, so they have to slow down the pace for the slow-learners to catch up, and they have to, because everyone in the class is their responsibility.

Then again, motivating myself to train/work just from home doesn't work for me. I need a schedule, I need to see people busying around, I need to be in a system, I'll subvert it if I have to, but I need to be in one to feel like I'm in place... or else I'll just procrastinate. So I guess there's a middle-ground here somewhere.
My experience of having earned a 1st Class Degree in Digital Arts compared to my self training a few years later. This post might save you a lot of money and heartache.

"Interviewed a little girl this morning that feeds crows and they bring her gifts in return. Here's her collection."

Sounds like the opening for a Neil Gaiman novel

The must-go bazaar here in our apartment seems spontaneous to me. I just saw there was one today so I checked it out. What caught my eye were two leather jackets.

The first one looks like a biker jacket, felt like I was in Mad Max, haha 😅 not my style though. So I got the less flashy one.

In which I talk about what was going on in my head the entire time I was getting my US Visa.

...

I gave myself a mental note to not get distracted while a self-satisfied woman looked like she was letting her boobs bounce on purpose as she walked eagerly to the exit.

Guess someone's visa got approved.

Got some good news on the mail today. Bristol Bay huh? Sounds like an adventure. I didn't get a tote bag though, whatever that is.
