Re: I'm not happy

    After 11 years of being a professional web designer, I learned that everyone is searching for happiness. If we don't find it in our jobs, its because of the two major pillars to a day job.

    You have the people you work with and the work you do.

    If either one sucks, then "you're gonna have a bad time. " (- South Park) It's very hard to find a place where you work 8+ hours a day at and still be happy when you get home. But, I assure you, those jobs are out there.

    If you don't like your current job, work hard when you get home to find a better one. Go take up side jobs where you control everything. Give back to the community and speak at meetups. Teach someone web design. Do fun things that'll let you be creative.

    Learning and challenging yourself is where true happiness comes from. The awesome thing about Web Design is that all you need is a sketch book, computer and an internet connection to lets your creative mind fly.

    Remember when we were kids and every time we learned something new, our eyes lit up and we wanted to use that new knowledge and play with it?

    Do that.

    Find new things and play. =)
