They say to do what you love the most (job-wise), right? Because if you love it enough, it won’t feel like a job. Well, they’re the three main things that I love the most and they’re the three main parts of my dream job.
Anyway, I was creating my bucket list the other day, mainly because I was bored out of my mind, but also because my thoughts and goals were all over the place. Then my future job came to mind and I’m absolutely clueless when it comes to this subject because I only change my mind about a million times a day. So instead of thinking about a job overall, I instead listed all the things that I find the most interesting and came to the conclusion of fashion, technology and design.
And here’s why…
I’ve always been into fashion. I don’t know why, I guess it’s just something that I look forward to a lot. If you ever see me around, my clothes are only ever casual because I really don’t like to stand out right now. In the future, yes, but for now I just want to blend in. Unless it’s a formal occasion. If it’s formal then I’ll go all out with my whole outfit; head to toe.
Designing is literally my number one passion. It doesn’t matter whether it’s food, coding, graphic design, clothes, interiors, The Sims expansion pack, Lego and so on; I love them all (though I haven’t played with the Lego in years). Like lately, I’ve started designing and creating my own clothes for me (and my family when they want something) to wear because I’ve gotten really picky about things such as sizes, patterns, MONEY, hem lines, feature placements, fabrics, etc. Plus, mum has piles and piles of old clothes that she no longer uses so I like to get creative with them because, as boring as it may sound, I find it so fun.
Then there’s the technology side; coding. This was pretty much the thing that I learnt to fall in love with. I resented it so much at first because, back in high school, they’d messed up my timetable for the new school year which meant that I had to choose between either IT or something that I thought was equally as boring (can’t remember what it was) but I had two friends in that class so I though, “Eh, why not.” But once I started seeing what you could do with a little bit of coding, I started getting more and more into it. Don’t get me wrong though, I still hated the assignments since I had to do what the teacher wanted in an assignment and only just passed because of it but before that, I just always thought that it was for hackers and computer “nerds” that had no life. That’s literally what I thought of it so thank you high school for stuffing up my grade 11 time table. I’m being serious. Thank you. I wouldn’t have known about all the perks of coding without you and because of it, I’m now studying at university for a Bachelor’s Degree in IT.
But with all this being said, I still don’t know exactly what job I actually want to pursue. I just know that I want to be able to combine my three interests of fashion, technology and design so that I can work with all three. There’s probably so many different pathways this can lead to and new jobs are being created everyday, especially ones to do with technology, so there’s bound to be something. You wouldn’t happen to have any ideas would you?
Talk to you next time. x
