The re-education of Ashley

After a lot of thought and anguish and talking people’s ears off I’m getting closer to making a decision about what I’m doing with my life.I’ve known for some time that I don’t want to be at work (since pretty much the first day) but kind of stuck there because of a need to pay rent and I’m not really sure where I want to go.  I enjoyed my animation course, but soon realised it’s not for me.

For a while I considered doing a MA in Game Design and I still might (going to defer it for now), but I’m leaning towards just trying out a lot of different things at this stage and see where it leads me.  So the areas I’m thinking of are:

  • Web design
  • UX
  • Android app development
  • Game design
  • Illustrator

I’ve started with the web design stuff already (as I had a project that I needed to get to work on already) and again it’s been fun, but I don’t think ultimately its for me.  Hopefully not all the above will end up like that, but we’ll see.

What I’m hoping to do is spend a few months trying out those things and see what fits and then leave work.  There might be a period of unemployment but I think this would be beneficial to then have more dedicated time to work on things.

So yeah.  I have a plan.  A plan to start again.
