Hmmm. Just had a look at your work so far. I find you made a good job in creating watch faces. It looks promising... And your time is defintely not wasted. I made a lot free watch faces before i was promoted to facer partner but i never saw them as a waste of time.
I think it‘s only a question of time since you get promoted and it‘s not very wise to throw it all away now. I can understand that you are frustrated but i think you should give it another try. This are only my two cents but maybe they will help to think about it once more.
BTW: it‘s not only about creating watch faces. They do observe how you participate and interact in the community as well...
