On Study And Work

Something I get asked a lot by restaurant staff and customers is, why am I not working in the design field after studying for it?

My answer is relatively simple.

We’re no longer living in an environment where a many post-secondary degrees carry value (some are still important to have, but many aren’t). 

But the fake urgency to stay on the same track as we’ve been on for the past 4-6 years is real.

I admit, it’s hard to hold constant energy for something you don’t truly care about.

And frankly, I think that’s why I couldn’t stand up to applying for design jobs.

I believe there’s plenty of room (and time) in the world for young people like us to simply explore something else.
