I’m a real daydreamer, and sometimes I spend a bit too much time just sitting around thinking about a billion different things that I want to do, rather than just getting up and doing it. I’ve changed a lot since last year, though, and I feel like I’m becoming more and more of a doer. It’s nice to finally see my life going in some kind of direction after drifting around for years, and being a bit clueless about myself and what I want to do.
Right now I’m doing a lot of different stuff because I get really bored if every day is the same. I’m working at a café and at a music agency where I put together playlists for different clothing stores. I’m also hosting a club called FEEL with three friends, and that got me into graphic design because I ended up making all the flyers for our events. Now, I have been doing artwork for a few artists, so graphic design is turning into my job as well. It’s a lot of fun because I’ve always known that I wanted to do something creative with my life, but I’ve been too much of a self-critic and thinking I’m not good enough, so I really needed a little push to get out of my comfort zone.
I get a lot of inspiration from my environment, mostly from my friends, I think. I have a lot of close friends that are doing art stuff, both music and visual art, and I think just spending a lot of time with them gives me a lot of ideas. I can be a bit of a quitter because I lose my patience when I don’t learn stuff quickly enough, so it’s good to be surrounded by people that are inspiring.
I try not to stress too much about my future, since I’ve noticed that doing something that I don’t enjoy one hundred percent doesn’t work out for me. I’m just doing whatever I think is fun at the moment, and hopefully that will take me somewhere good!
