i am jealous of my boyfriend's success.
i just admit to myself that the real reason why i am angry is because i am very jealous of him. i am proud of him but still jealous. We are both creative ppl and his career is taking off and i am stuck behind a desk. now he is traveling, doing shoots... i was the one doing that when we met, but now, i have no life and no money and i am green in the face. he doesnt know that i am jealous and i shouldn't be, and i pick fights because i am mad at myself. I want him to succeed but just not so far out my league... is this normal?

No - cut it out! You're not supposed to be competing with your mate..the 2 of you are a team who compete against others. See how that works?
It's common. This was the top reason why couples with the same career usually didn't end well. They compete with one another. The woman in the relationship feel the way you do but it's worse for the men when the female is more sucessful than him. Because men are the providers. Have you heard of the Oscar curse? All the female actresses who won oscars soon divorced, it was so common they called it the oscar curse. Their husbands are actors too. When you're in the same career, it almost never works out. So, how you are feeling is very common. Just keep in mind that your relationship most likely won't work out long-term.
