didn't think it would be this hard!

Track playing: Jimi Hendrix – Purple haze "...all in my brain..." ;-)
Time: 11.07pm…still need to fix the time/date settings on this blog…


I know I said I wouldn’t blog again till after exams, but phuck that, I felt like. Bite me!

Revision is going fine(ish), made a revision plan and all, but it’s been so freakin’ hard to stick to it! You dunno how much effort it takes for me to sit down and read/practice essays/make notes…it’s been a while…and to make it worse it’s like I have no motivation at all...

I guess it’s due to the uncertainty of my future after school…I’m just really confused over where I’m gonna go next…or what exactly I’m gonna do…or how to get there! Ugh! The thought is constantly gnawing at me. Especially during class…like where does all this lead to?

What I do know is that I want to do something that will nurture my creative side, something my business sense can cut into (remind me to tell y’all how I hustled 22grand today at school…all between lessons!), where I can work at home sometimes, where I can work with a small intimate team of professionals…and I want to make my own!!

Not feeling an employed-by-the-Man deep-in-the-system desk job. Was recently thinking along the lines of advertising? Like an Art director of an advertising firm (preferably mine-lol)…well it’s a start to this dream job I haven’t quite figured out yet.

The courses I'm looking at are profsional design in visual communication or media studies or something along those lines…I want hands on course.

Possible places are Malaysia, Japan, South Africa, Canada or the US of A…but still have time to figure that ish out.
First gotta pass those damn exams!




"...Lately things just dont seem the same
Actin funny, but I dont know why
excuse me while I kiss the sky
Purple haze all around
Dont know if Im comin up or down..."

Yay for jimi hendrix! Your idea is definitely workable. My cousin is an art thingie for an advertising firm and does her own thing on the side, custom tshirts. It works for her i think. she has me jealous of her cool life! Flexible schedule, artsy people, interesting accounts et cetera et cetera

Let me not say anything career related, you might end up a plumber. I'm that bad at it.

@Yz - cool! and she lives here, somewhere in East Africa or in SA? b'cuz some people have been discouraging me saying stuff like how that kind of lifestyle isnt sustainable especially here...i'm still convinced i can make it work tho...

@ Normzo - Yeah i hope so!

@TRP - thanx :-)

@ Payo – That’s what it all comes down too, huh? Thanks 4 keeping your bad advice to yourself! lol

Payo said...

You've got to pull all the stops to pass e'm. Glad to keep the advice!

So you know you need to get back back to studying right?

yz said...

She's in kampala. You can do it but you have to really want it, I think, work your assets off and all.

i think being an art director is a good start

but i encourage you to try many things out

and also have an altruistic goal in life

not just a selfish individualistic pursuit of your own hedonistic desires

eizzy.k said...

an altruistic goal? yeah i definatly got one, perhaps i shall blog about it one of these days...just need to find a way to start...
