Since starting University, I have realised how much my outlook in my future has changed. I have discovered it’s not just about making a choice on a career and that’s it, I have decided what I want to be! On the contrary, if this course has taught me anything so far, is that there is a lot more to that. Since then, I have began asking myself questions such as:
Which pathway do I wish to pursue?
What is it that interests/motivates/moves me?
What is the social/political movement behind a particular movement behind certain movements? And why?
Will I be in employment when I graduate?
Would I like to go back to higher education later for a Masters Degree and maybe later, a PhD?
These days, I seem to be asking myself more and more questions than I used to do, whether it is about my future, or just wishing to seek more knowledge.
However, I do seem to have found some aims in life. My key aim on this was to expand my horizons in design and I was asking questions such:
- What takes my interest in design?
- Am I able to find a career of interest?
- Is there anything else I am good at or enjoy doing in design?
- Do I have any other skills that I can pursue in design?
I like to set myself a challenge, to find if there any new skills that I could possibly go into a career. Personally, I like a challenge, as this does motivate me, I then start asking myself questions that are relevant and I usually end up finding the answer that could help me progress into something further. I could find that there there is something I like to do, other times, I may find that a particular aspect of design isn’t something of my interest, or it could be of interest, but I would rather leave as an interest.
