The future can seem wild and crazy sometimes, even dark and mysterious. I have found I hide from it far too much and I need to make plans so I have some idea what I want to do. I have many ideas about what I think I should do, but no real action plan on how to achieve my goals.
These are my main areas that I would be content working in. Those with a star are my favourites.
- Artist *
- Writer *
- Graphic Designer
- Illustrator *
- Web Designer/Developer
I think the most conflicting problem I have is that the favourite fields I have (such as writing and art) are not exactly jobs that require you to have a certain level of education or diploma/degree and are more bassed on your level of talent and creativity. So I sometimes feel I should be taught, when my own self exsploration and developement is the best thing I can do. Oh the woes of a creative future.
There are courses out there that can provide me with helpful skills and I think at least starting something like that can kick start my desire to be more involved. There are a great number of web design courses as well, and I may take another so I have a backup, but that is really not what warms my heart the most or what as I see as a valuable mark to leave on the world, my writing and art would make me happiest to leave behind.
Plan: Get a clue, stick to said clue and do something. :[
