this week I turn 25 #facepalm
what have i done so far i hear you ask? depends on your point of view i guess.
I finished school and went to college to study graphic design, finished the course and got a place at university. i then graduated uni with a 2:2 in Graphic design after 4 years.
all the while holding down a part time job which i could transfer between when at home and at uni.
i then came back home and got full time hours with the same company, got a promotion...and have yet to use my degree....i graduated 3 years ago.
i dont know what it was but uni changed my mind on the things i was doing. i expected the life of a graphic designer to be full of fun adventures looking for inspiration (im sure it is for those who actually do it), but the way that uni lecturers go about briefs makes it so incredibly dull. they suppress your creativity and make you churn out the same thing over and over and over again.
i might get back into it one day but for now i need to find something new that excites me.
i saved my money and booked a trip to the big apple with a friend and we had the most amazing time. i promised myself i would do more adventuring but sadly life took over.
this time last year i was admitted into hospital after having quite a serious hypo, iv been diabetic since i was 7 and this was the first time iv ever had to go in. when this happened i realised that life is short and things needed to change.
i needed to stop doing my usual every day routine, getting out of bed and hauling myself to work followed by coming home and face planting the pillow all to wake up and do the same thing again the following day.
it was about time i stop dreaming about things i want to do and actually do them!
however a year on im still pretty much in the same place.
so now that im turning 25 its actually time to do something. to ensure i do the things i dream of im going to blog out it. im going to try and do one thing every day that makes me happy and save for the big dreams and make them a reality.
lets get this show on the road, broke boy style!
