Betty - Sprite by Inky-Shade

The thirteen years old Betty Jollywaters is forced to spend her summer vacation in Hollowoods, a little rural village surrounded by forests and mountains. But what she expected to be a horribly boring holiday turned into a crazy rescuing adventure after she had found a weird amulet which gained her some very unusual friends.

Genre : Fantasy, Adventure

I'm tired of everything

Seriously, I can search as much as I want to but I fail at finding a job in the Graphic Design field. Nobody wants to take people who have just graduated. They all want people who have been working for 1-3 years already. What do they expect me to do? Pull the required experience out of my ass or something? How should I make experience if nobody takes me in?? Working as a trainee is a no go as well because they barely earn anything if they earn something at all. I need money.

Maybe I should just train to become a jeweller, carpenter or any other partly creative job which exists a thousand times in Austria (not even sure about jeweller). I can't even really work in the sales or gastronomy field because I am horrible at dealing with customers or doing cashier activities. I have tried and failed twice. It's just not my job field and I hate dealing with tons of strangers. And about being an illustrator: they barely earn anything and freelancers ought to have some experience already as well or nobody will hire you. Not to mention that freelancing sounds hella risky. What do you do if you can't find customers, for example? Where does your money come from? I want a secure working field instead of always worrying whether you will be able to pay your bills because you aren't sure whether you will find a new customer once you have finished your recent project. Not to mention that freelancers need to promote themselves online quite well to find a job and people barely care about my stuff already so how should I get myself seen if nobody will take a look? I just don't know what to do anymore. I have reached a mental all-time low, have been feeling down and been on the verge of just crying for ages now and am on the best road to become clinically depressed if shit keeps up like this.

deviantArt has always been a nice escape but this page is just bullshit nowadays. All the good people are gone, nobody gives a shit about people's personal content anymore and the forums are cancer. This site is just a major waste of time nowadays. Maybe I should try myself on behance. I doubt anyone will care there either but well, what other artistic site is left out there?

Seriously, I envy everybody who has already found their job field and has created stability in their lives. Consider yourself lucky because you truly are. I don't know how other artists make it out there or even found their way into the branche, I really don't.
