Currently having a pre-quarter life crisis (probably an fifth life crisis or something pathetic) about what I want to do with my future. This past month I’ve seriously thought about going into the radio industry to become a radio presenter. Basically my ultimate goal would be to work for Triple J because I think mainstream radio is getting too much of the spotlight, and I believe that alternative youth stations are really cool/important for young people to engage in music and arts, like Triple J has done for me over my high school life.
The other thing is though, I also have this passion of art and drawing. I can’t survive without drawing for a certain amount of hours, and many adults and friends have told me I’m good enough to make a career around it.
Pretty much since year 9 I’ve known that I am going to do something with drawing/expressing my creativity. I don’t feel like my work is developed enough yet to go straight into commission work/posting stuff online. I’m still trying to find my style and I’m struggling with that at the moment. A lot of students in high school exhibitions seem to have a lot more refined works then I do.
And it’s all I can think about. Will I regret picking one career path over the other? could I pull off both? I really don’t know and I’m scared.
