I don’t think anyone does. But, that's how it goes for some people.

I wish I had some kind of special talent that I could sell to others. The beauty of doing what you love whilst being able to financially provide for yourself just seems so amazing, so romantic. It’s almost storybook, in a way.

But, sadly, it’s not in the stars for most people. Most of us will be corporate wage-slaves our entire lives. Sad, isn’t it? So much human potential, wasted in front of industrial-sized stove tops and in office cubicles.

I really envy you people on this site that get steady commission streams and run Patreons or whatever else it is that you do, you know? I know it's not all sunshine and rainbows, and I know it can actually get really, really hard sometimes. But, still, being able to make any kind of extra money (or even making your craft a full-time job) off of something you do for fun? None of you will ever realize how jealous I am of someone like that, whether it be an artist, a musician, an athlete, or what have you.

So, don't ever give up on your talents or skills - it can carry you places. It can carry you to places other people that do not have that talent will never, ever reach, no matter how much they want to.

I'm doing decently, my friend - I hope you are, as well. I miss talking with you at night, and I miss your art streams! :hug:

Also, I still diligently look at and admire everything you draw, no worries! You never lose a step! :aww:
