I haven't animated in quite a few months

I have so many ideas, especially for Super Cow, that I want to turn into animations, but I've been slowly becoming more and more unmotivated to animate anything throughout the past few years. The problem is it isn't fun or entertaining for me. I've been drawing my whole life, and the idea that I can take my drawn characters and settings and bring them to life is awesome to me, but somehow sitting at a computer animating for 3 hours a session only to end up with one character action finished just isn't appealing to me.

On the other hand, I've been getting much more into music production, and it's starting to make me question if I'm really "cut out" to be an animator. When I get the ball rolling on a song, working on it and seeing it grow is fun to me. I have to bring myself away from the computer sometimes because I'll be so deep into a song, whereis the exact opposite happens to me for animation. So I don't know. I mean I've always been a little unsure about animation in terms of it being what I want to do for a career, but now it's starting to become much more real and much more terrifying. I mean I'm going to college next year, and for the longest time I've been prepping myself and going through school with the idea that I'd suddenly magically get the motivation and skills to go through an animation course once I start college. However, maybe I'm just being lazy, and maybe deadlines and the ever-present idea that not completing an animation could affect your future and waste tons of money is what I need, y'know? Maybe it's the kind of thing I need to kick me into gear.

Anyway, I don't really know what I'm going to do about this but I guess I'll just feel it out. I've got a few small toon ideas written and started so maybe I'll see where that goes but as far as SC&CW I can imagine I'm not going to be working very much. However I'll probably still be making tunes so...check me out on soundcloud and stuff...yeah

It's just a bummer because after episode 1 of SC&CW took so long, I told myself I was going to finish the next episode faster without procrastinating so much, but here we are again however many years later in pretty much the exact same scenario.
