So I've been thinking if this is the right thing for me. It has me reflecting. One of the reasons why I chose design, was because out of all the interests I'd had career wise, which have been mostly in creative fields, graphic design and design in general seemed like the most practical. But it hasn't felt that way ever since finishing school. Interviews feel like auditions. It feels like the skills I acquired aren't enough and I need to wow them with personality and eye candy. I thought design was about "solving problems." It got me thinking how I don't even design for "fun".
All I wanted was a good job. But I guess this isn't really just a job. I feel discouraged and confused. It's getting harder to keep going and don't know if I should keep trying.
