Can't sleep tonight so I figure I can post something about my life.
I've been working on the art for spn horrobang. I was a little ambitious because I wanted to try something new, and i hope it will turn out to be better than it looks now. Actually the total hours spent on it were not many. I just suffer from procrastinating, which is the negative side effect of my work.
Speaking of work, after several days in the mountains during the two public holidays recently, I have finally started considering changing my career and try to do UI design. Of course the terrible corporate culture is one big reason I don't want to stay, I also came to know that I don't like a career in human resource, and I'm so sick of the babysitting and ass kissing I have to do right now. In the end, this job doesn't improve any skills of mine except lying and faking. I will be so much happier if I drop all things and chase my dream of being part of something creative. And UI design seems to be a good idea. I went to a UI design training institute yesterday and it seemed to be a good platform for me to get into the industry. Though it requires me quitting my job since its training is full time for 4 months. It also recommend the students to many companies upon graduation, which is very helpful.
When I told some of my close friends that I probably would study UI design and take on that path next year, they all said, congratulations, you finally made the decision, you are better at that kind of job. But my parents had a hard timing accepting it. Though, they okayed it eventually. I'm grateful that they believed me.
Though I talked about how It might be a bad thing to do what you like personally for a living, UI design is not drawing and I guess my drawing experience can be a plus and I'll learn a lot of things. And I'm so ready to work on creative projects, which is far more rewarding than babysitting arrogant people. Ill probably quit in Feb after getting the year end bonus. But I'm so excited for it right now. Maybe that's why I can't sleep...
