I think it’s finally time that I go back to uni. I know, I know, that’s a bit of a big sweeping statement, but just hear me out.
I dropped out of uni about two years ago because, frankly, I didn’t know what the heck I was doing. The whole thing was really just a big mess from my perspective, I was more or less peer/parent pressured into doing something that I knew wasn’t right for me and a lot of the reason I did it in the first place was just to make everyone happy, even though it made me miserable.
But hey, a lot can change in a couple of years, and actually one of the biggest things that’s happened in my life was that I met someone truly inspiring. She works for this amazing commercial office design company in Melbourne and has been truly instrumental in helping me find my calling. For ages, after I’d dropped out, I really wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, but had this vague notion that I’d have to study law or med or something equally as ridiculous to be happy, but having such incredible people in my life who are doing things that are far more left of field has really opened my horizons.
Look, I’m not saying that I personally want to go into helping people with their commercial office fitouts in Melbourne, but I am thinking that something way more design related could be right up my alley. I just want to do something with my life that feeds my soul as well as my pocket, and getting into an area like graphic design or something like that could be a way to do that. Obviously it’s all in the early stages, and besides, it’s too late to enrol in this semester anyway, but I think I’m finally ready to give study another go.
