One cannot design all the time. If you do… I’m not sure what that makes you other than maybe super dedicated. But to others you surround yourself with, you start to become boring and weird. Don’t believe me? Let’s break this down for a second.
I began my career attempting to obtain a degree in dental hygiene — I know, what was I thinking!? Telling people to say ahh and picking their teeth for a living is not something I would have enjoyed for very long. Hence the fact that I changed majors two years in to focus on graphic design. Now don’t get me wrong, it’s a very reputable field and you can make a great living cleaning teeth. But once I realized all my math and chem notes were covered with illustrations and I continuously took art classes as an outlet to keep my sanity while attending college…it was time for a change.
