After I’ve started working full time at a job I never really imagine me working with at all I’ve been very uncertain about what to do with myself. Animation used to be my big dream working with. But I honestly don’t miss working with it. I love the craft, but not sure if I want to work with it. Especially not on freelance which I had the most experience with.
Which leaves me wondering if there is something else I wanna do. But looking for work is the last thing I wanna do after having some terrible experience with it. Which leaves me in a situation where I feel rather stuck. And it feels pretty awkward being 31 years old and not knowing what I wanna do when I grow up.
At the same time, I wouldn’t say my situation is terrible. After several of years of part time works and freelance projects. My situation is pretty stable right now, with a job where people appreciate me and an adequate salary that makes me able to travel now and then. It is just that I don’t think I wanna do it forever.
... Also my vacation ends today. So that is why I might be a bit of a downer. XD
Anyway, here are some suggested topics for today:
- What is your “future plan”? What do you hope will happen the coming years or so?
- What would you like to change about your current situation?
- Or talk about anything!
