Jake talked about comics, but everything he said could be applied to animation, illustration, film, pie making. Maybe not everything related to pie making, and the getting into the comic industry was pretty comic specific. But whatever your here for, you've got to want it. Don't settle for a half developed story, or the current version of the piece your working on just because you've gotten pretty far on it. Don't be afraid to throw that pie crust away when you know you can bake a flakier one. And why make a strawberry pie in the middle of winter, when if you waited a few months to when they were in season and could get the freshest, juiciest berries?

Don't do the minimal your classes require to pass, and expect to leave school with an invitation to be a new pie creator at Marie Callender's.
