    Brian, thank you for your response and advice. I've never aimed to give off an arrogant bravado in my work, writing or personal brand. The fact it may come across like this is nothing but a shock, so thank you for the note. I am a humble teen, the only conceivable reason for being on this very post asking for all of your help. As for travel, that is a huge part of who I am at the moment, trying to see the world and hopefully develop myself as a designer because of it. I accept it should take a backseat role on my portfolio, but it has been funded by me, working undesirable jobs, to get the money to go. Thanks again for your time and advice!

      The way you're responding to the feedback you're getting here tells me you're on the right track. Keep it up! One thing I'd like to add is that you should take everything anyone tells you with a grain of salt. No one knows the truths of your life like you do. You can collect all the critique and advice you want, from all the brilliant people in the world, but ultimately you are the one who gets to decide whether or not to listen to it. The people who seem older and wiser than you may have a few experiences you don't, but everyone you know is, for the most part, figuring it out as they go along. You just get better at hiding after a while.
