Damn man, reading this is weirdly relevant to me. I'm a sophomore Illustration student and over the past month I've had like a mental breakdown just from the paranoia of future instability. I'm just not sure if I could survive in such a free-moving world (partially because I'm cynical and partially because I'm terribly prone to procrastinate).
Even just one pearl of wisdom on this subject would mean loads to me, I feel consumed by it sometimes. What's it like starting out? How did you adjust to it?
