Hometown and lowkey keep searching for animation job and honing your craft while doing a regular joe job seems like the most practical choice imo, but thats just me. That way you can save and have a safety net if things get wet and wild while still retaining your independance. Its totally normal to keep expecting your parents input and approval for everything right out of college i think, just cause thats what your used to, but eventually that'll go away. Its just an adjustment period to a new normalcy. Really id look at it from the viewpoint of, are you more likely to keep up with looking for the job under high pressure, low pressure, or no pressure (im making some very sweeping assumptions here about your home life, forgive me if im wrong. I mostly mean no pressure financially??? Or something) conditions?
