Finally, after years of consideration, and through the ups and downs of uncertainty, I have finally figured out what I want to do with my life. For some, it comes so easily, and is a no-brainer of what they want to do for the rest of their life, but for me, it was much more difficult. I thought I knew what I wanted to do, more times than I can count, and now I know for sure.
I have always had a love for graphic design (if you look at my blog, you can tell!), and always experiment on photoshop in my down time, but I never actually thought about it for a career. Now that I think about it, it’s so silly that I never considered it. I was always focused on utilizing science in my career, but thinking about the prospective jobs, I was never that excited or certain of my path. I feel excited thinking about life as a graphic designer and I can’t tell you how good it feels to actually know what you want to be when you “grow up.”
Hopefully everything turns out great and my developing skills will be recognized after my first semester as a design student!
