I've never thought of News post as like entries, but it seems like the best format for dumping your thoughts and such, can't stand Facebook and Twitter is too limited.
Once you reach a checkpoint in life like gradutating from high school, you have to look back on your experiences and reflect, then start planning for the future. I don't think school can help you do either of those, it's mandatory, repetitive, and isn't all that flexible for an individual student. Now i'm at a point where i've got to plan my path which is a really high stakes game that you have to make the rules for. It's even more difficult when you're unsure of your goals; I know that I want to do animation for a living, but I don't know where I want it to take me, what will I be doing with that, is it a studio job, freelance or a game, idk. I'm not even sure which I prefer or which are available, it's also really easy to be a dreamer and beleive everything will work out. I decided I wanted to do animation as a job and put all my focus into that a while back, but I know other people my age that don't have faith in careers in art, so I wonder if maybe i'm not being realistic or if i've just been building myself up about this and paying too much attention to the success stories and glorifying the lives of online artists. The direction is animation but the path isn't clear and neither is the endgoal, where the hell is this gonna bring me? Maybe I should just make it up as I go along, but that could just leave me stagnant and unmotivated. It might be too early to be thinking about this, but it's unsettling to not know what you'll be doing in a week, a month, or a year, or what you even want to be doing by then.
I'm usually against posts like these since I don't like how they come off, but it's up to you to interpret this as whatever you like.
