Yeah that's true, maybe I don't. It's just I don't what else I want to be in life, and people keep telling me to do the job I want, rather than trying to find something else I might not like for the rest of my life, so not sure what else to strive for.

That is a completely, totally awful kind of angst that many people wrestle with. You might have to come to terms with having a “real job” and doing this stuff as a very exhausting hobby. Many people do. The lady at the insurance company loves acting, knows she’ll likely never make it, does community theater and small films to keep her soul from atrophying, never counting on it actually paying off. It’s depressing, it sucks, is also often just the way it is.

By all means keep doing projects, make your feature at some point, just know that it may forever be a hobby. it might just have to be “fun” and not a job or replacement for your primary income.

Okay thanks, I still want to aim for distribution of a feature though, rather than not aim at all though, and that was the plan with this one, I am doing development and budget on.
