So I've lived in Brooklyn for almost five years now, gotten a degree, met lots of people, shown lots of art, and completely lost my way as far as my mental image of myself goes.
My grandmother, who is my only living family member, got in a really bad car accident about a year ago and Alzheimer's symptoms quickly manifested. She's on the other side of the country and I hardly have enough money to house myself no less fly across the country to see her. It's tough, but I'm adjusting to the changes.
I feel pretty alone out here sometimes, even though I have a lot of friends and colleagues and the stuff I'm doing even feels like it matters. Sometimes I legitimately feel like I'm going crazy.
I miss being involved with online communities a lot, I miss being involved with the old style of internet interactions a lot.
So right this second I'm between houses and looking for a place to live, working as a freelance animator and designer and busting ass, showing at a few places coming up, playing a lot of music. It all feels great and I'm trying to enjoy it, having some temporary difficulty.
Hope everyone is well, doom 4ever yadda yadda.

It sounds like you're well on track to achieving your goals. That's your problem. We tend to build up in our minds how much lasting satisfaction we'll get when we accomplish something. It's better to just let your goals drift on the distant horizon.
Also, stick around Doomworld. You'll learn more valuable, practical life lessons, just like that one.
Value is sometimes self worth. I will now feed you with motivational tripe. Honestly, love your grandma in anyway that you can.
You're resourceful. This is just a minor bump in the grander scheme of Bank. Even if I'm blowing smoke up your bum. Go forth and kick obstacles in their sometimes abstract face. Do it for the other option will not be so pleasant from what I can gather.
