I recently started to seriously question whether or not I still wanted to pursue my degree in film production. This wasn't just a random thought, but instead the culmination of doubt, frustration and serious questioning about the actual worth of an already lengthy university experience. I'm not about to dissect the importance of a degree because it seems pretty obvious. What I went through in the last week, I understand now, has been about rediscovering and redefining my goals.
I'm on a break until next semester now, and with this time I plan on doing a few more personal projects, making some money, and setting some realistic goals for myself. I'm smart enough to know that no one just finds motivation or inspiration, it's something that you have to work for; something that you have to pursue. Being a student has a lot of positives and negatives, but it's temporary. I'll be working now to remind myself that what I do here will have more worth when I actually start my 'real' life. Motivation doesn't come easy on the path to a degree.
