Will UI with outstanding animations become UX?

So I’ve been scoring all these great UX/ UI interviews and not getting the job. I’m a visual designer/ creative director/ digital marketer trying to transition to UX and not quite getting there. I’m thinking about a boot camp bc I can’t keep up with Interactive Design Foundation course on my own bc working two jobs and being a mom (need deadlines/career placement). Which is fastest/ cheapest/ best? I’m in the Philadelphia metro area.

When you get older You think a lot more, at least I do. In my younger days I was too busy having fun to think too much. I was running around like a crazy man. Taking the kids to whatever activity they had going on. Playing softball twice a week, golf, hunting. So many things to do. Now is a little different. Kids are grown and gone now and I'm 64. Its funny now but I am such a Beatles fan. I always was. I remember listening to the song "When I'm 64" and thinking that I would hit that age in about 200 years. I'm too busy to be that damn old. LOL, hello 64. Bam it punched me right in the face. I never saw it coming. Now my fun is different. I enjoy sitting at my computer making all sorts of art in pictures or taking a long ride on my motorcycle. Things change when you get older. Your wants and desires change. The things you thought were so important when you were 25 mean almost nothing to you at 64. Well I said all that to make the point that you have more time to think when you get older. You start wanting to slow things down a little. You see the end a little more clearly now. At least you start to realize that there will actually be an end. You start to summarize your life. You wonder if you had an impact in this world. Its crazy really. All those things are okay I think. It's good to reflect and think about your life. Just don't end your life prematurely. I'm not talking about suicide. I'm talking about giving up on life. I mean your body lives on but your mind is gone away. You've succumbed to your age and are okay with it. My answer to that is "HELL NO". Don't die early. You're not that damn old. 64 is a great age. You have more smarts now, more money. You can turn your thoughts to what you can do for others. I create art. I love it. It's fun creating something like this image. I wanted it to look very old. Something from the Civil War era. I did it. Look at that. If you didn't know that it was a digital image you might be convinced that it was from the Civil War. Blow it up and look at the writing at the bottom. Even that font looks old and maybe hand written. I did that myself. I watched some tutorials and made it from a new modern picture. That is an accomplishment. I'm proud of the work. I'm proud of all my work. When I first started all I could do was dream of making art like this. Now I am actually doing it. What fun. You can do the same thing. Maybe you played a little guitar when you were younger. Go get it. Practice and then make a youtube video. Your life was interesting. Go write about it. Get out your old paint set and paint a sunset. It don't matter what it is. Just get out there and do SOMETHING. Find a passion and go for it. Have some fun. Live some life. Life is just beginning. I know mine has. Okay you must know the song for today. Yup. When I'm 64 by the Beatles. I just had to. Peace out my brothers and sisters.
