Dropped Out Of Photography, Was it worth it?

I really hate I had to drop out of  The Art Institute for photography. I really love taking pictures but sometimes when financial situations fit you have to do what you have to do. Thinking of a YouTube video I watched about a few months ago, I'm wondering did I make the right chose. The woman went on about your degrees don't mean nothing when you can't find a job after completing college. Let's be real, I think it's true in some cases and in the back of my mind I felt like one of those cases.

 Dropping out was a chose because like I said financial situations arose and it kind of still hurts in doing it. Photography courses was very interesting but also demanding to go out and do projects, mind you I lost my car and income was dropped done a bit. In my mind I feel like freelancing is a way to still succeed without a degree, I see people all the time making photography a business and being their own bosses. Do I think I can make it freelancing? Yes and No. Firstly I need transportation to go out and explore different scenes and without one it's impossible for me to showcase my work and get people attention. Seems like when I want something so bad there is always a road block.

I have a handful of photos I've taken and have gotten some good feedback, so I will continue to sharpen my skills and hopefully by next year I'll have a car and try and make contacts to make this a business. After dropping out there's another bill added to my belt, Which is the student loans I have to start paying back in October. Life throws you lemons and you have to deal with them until you can make sweet lemonade. If I dream big enough and try much harder, I think I can make it in this world.
