Transcript of Planning all possible pathways.
Step 1 - seek post secondary education

Website Designer - take tech courses every year, with art courses on the side and proceed to find a university or college that offers a computer science degree. The degree takes 3 years to complete.
Step 3 - Pros and Cons, Barriers and Challenges
Step 4 - preferable pathway and contingency plan
The path to becoming an animator is preferable to me, utilizing my two strongest learning skills more than either other path, auditory and visual learning, combined with some tactile learning pertaining to drawing. Following the path for animation would allow me, should that career not turn out, to fall back upon cartooning, as the careers share many recommendations and requirements and are overall similar. Therefore, the path to animation is the one I will follow, and the path to cartooning shall be my contingency plan.
Step 2 - evaluate the pathways and possibilities
Animator - Tuition or scholarship are necessary for completing school and having materials throughout. Working towards a Bachelor's Degree in fine arts overlaps with the fact that one is suggested for cartoonist, and should I choose to switch to said career, I will already by qualified. Also the tech courses taken in high school will overlap should I choose to switch to website design from animation. Furthermore, some animation studies will let students act as interns while they study, allowing them to learn, and perhaps be hired to the company later.
Cartoonist - Tuition or scholarship are necessary for completing school and having materials throughout. Working towards a Bachelor's Degree in fine arts overlaps with the fact that one is suggested for animator, and should I choose to switch to said career. While in school, cartoonist can still apply for open cartooning positions and get field practice while in school.
Website Design - Tuition or scholarship are necessary for completing school and having materials throughout. If I should choose to switch over to a career in animation, I will already have experience with technological programs which will give me an edge in dealing with animation software.
Animators - Pros: Employment of animators is expected to grow faster than the average for all occupations through 2018, making it a career easier for new artists to get into. Utilizes good listening skills, and is good for auditory and visual learners such as myself. Cons: : Animators often work irregular hours and may be required to work evenings and weekends to complete project Some barriers and challenges include the difficulty to get into a good university or college that teaches for their profession.
Cartoonist: Pros: Newspapers are always in need of cartoonists, so positions often open for people with creativity and artistic talent such as myself. Cons: Newspapers as a media are dwindling. The barriers and challenges facing animators also apply to cartoonists.
Website Designers - Companies are always in need of sleek and well-designed websites, ensuring job stability and employment. Cons: There are many companies that spare the expense and trust the tech-savvy members of their staff to create a website. The barriers and challenges facing website designers mirror that of cartoonists and animators with the addition of the sheer number of applicants for this up and coming career.
