I'd post his rant, but someone else can do that. Add in the need to uproot yourself and move to one of the major studios after enough networking to get IN to said studio and that pretty much disqualifies most people on here.
So, you want to leave your town and head to the city, eh? Well, to start off, you'll need to convert a van into a living space, unless you're lucky enough to own a Westfalia, in which case I'd say you lucky fucker you. Then, you need to set up an emergency fund for repairs as well as perform any conversions, which can run from $500-$2000 at a minimum.
Once you're ready to make the trip (I'm going to use California as an example), try and stay northwise; I've heard some nightmare stories about the cops abusing civil forfeiture with travelers heading through Southwestern states.
Once you're in CA, get a gym membership with (and this is important) 24-HOUR LOCKER ACCESS. That gives you a place to store important things that you cannot lose, like dress clothing, other electronics, etc. You can usually pass off a PO box for your address for job applications, so make sure to get one of your own.
International groceries are your friend, a rice cooker is a lot more versatile than you think and bulk rice is quite cheap.
Most importantly, you need to be a fucking social butterfly, so anyone reading this without good social skills, get a job at a Starbucks or a local bar, 2 years there turned me from a socially stunted wreck into a relatively normal human being. Remember that everyone else hates those SJW animators too, they just don't say it in public.
