Have a Great Day! by CookiesNCrime

Hi guys!!
I have a tiny little update for ya'.
I am still on a half hiatus at the moment because I have been terribly busy and I'm still trying to figure things out, but I do plan on making some art to keep myself active here. I'm trying my hardest!
Hopefully I'll be back soon!
On hiatus.
I'm very confused on what to do for a career for the future. I thought it would be animation, but I'm not sure anymore. 
The thing is, I'm rarely fully satisfied with the work I put out there and doing animation in general gets very draining; even boring at times. I thought it was fun at first, because I didn't care what I made, as long as I was having fun.
Unfortunately, that mindset has changed.
I now see every post as a goal or competition. If the art isn't up to my personal standards, I see it as unsatisfactory and even a waste. At points I see making content as a chore that I have to drag myself through to get it done.
My standards are far too high and I know I'm so hard on myself, but honestly I don't know how to get rid of the problem.
Another issue is program use. I can't find any inexpensive programs with timelines (that work), audio support, and a nice variety of tools. I've tried Krita, but the audio playback wasn't supported; I've tried FireAlpaca, but it lacks a timeline (so everything is very difficult to sync); I've tried Pencil2D, but the program constantly crashed; and I've tried Clip Studio Paint, but there is a 24 frame limit (I have the pro version), as well as an extremely confusing timeline. I've considered OpenToonz, but it has a steep learning curve, according to what I've been told. With every software comes its downfall.
As for the paid-for programs, they are quite nice; but immaculate quality comes with a high price tag.
Animation is expensive. I don't want me, or my folks, whipping out their wallets for something that I don't find fun anymore, especially if I find myself avoiding it or not using it due to a lack of time. I do not want to pirate software either, it makes me feel guilty as hell.
I wish it wasn't this way, I really do. 
Most of this "rant" applies to animation, not art. Hopefully you will still see me posting art on here or Instagram (@/cookiesncrimeart), but animation could be scarce for awhile.
Who knows? Maybe I'll come back to it in a few months! However, as of today, animated content will plummet in frequency (as if it wasn't rare enough, ha). 
Thank you for reading this all the way through, I do appreciate it, and I hope you understand. <3
Any art style advice or suggesting ways to improve is greatly welcomed by me.
Thank you again.
-Cookies <3
How do you all stay motivated? This is can go for art or anything else! (I need some advice to keep me working on projects and was wondering what you do to keep yourself in a positive mindset). :>
Anyone got musical/broadway song recommendations? I need some more on my Spotify playlist. :>
I feel like toying with my art style a little. By this I mean messing more with body proportions and facial shapes to make my characters more unique instead of them being carbon copies that have "same face syndrome". I want my art to be recognizable, but unique and personal, however, I'm not sure how to do that... Any tips?
