So I just turned 26, I am married with a beautiful daughter and have a nice job with a good salary working as a creative director for a small company…so why am I bored? I have done a lot to get to this point in life, become stable, pay the bills, not sweat the small things or worry about finding clients. So why do I feel like my work is meaningless?…well because it kind of is.
I have been a freelance graphic designer, web developer, started and ran a successful screen printing shop, I even get paid just to talk with companies sometimes about ways to improve their brand, products, image, etc. I turned down a college scholarship to instead work for myself when I was 18; all of that work led to my current job which I am grateful for.
As I write this I’m not even sure what the purpose of it is. I just felt like maybe getting my thoughts down would help me come to some sort of decision on what I should do next…however I don't think that will be the case. I do not expect anyone to read this or really get anything from it however I do think it could help me figure out what it is I really want.
I do not want to quit my job however I do know that I need a change and I am going to keep writing here until I find out what that is.
I have been toying around with the idea of learning more about writing and possibly doing some freelance journalism on the side…so for now that’s what this “blog” will be.
My journey into being a creative director, entrepreneur, moonlighting journalist?…or whatever else I come up with along the way.
