The past few years or so have been pretty huge for myself and most other people my age. We’re faced with a life changing decision – what do we want to study?
I’d imagine most people don’t know what they want to do. Some are in it just for te sake of it, doing a course they don’t really like… others are in it for the grant money… then others know exactly what they want to do… but it’s not too often i’d come across someone who definitely wants to do ‘x’ or ‘y’.
So moving on to me, i can’t put an ‘x’ marks the spot on my future career. I know i want to be an IT professional, preferably running my own business. But that’s pretty vague. I’m still not sure what exact area – software development, web development? Probably the latter. But i can’t say for definite. I could end up in either and i’m letting time sort that one out for me.
So what else could i be if i decided to pack it all in and change direction completely? Well, i’ve always had an eye on journalism. Just look at this blog! I love writing, and sticking the knife into people or things, so tabloid journalism would suit me. Forget the broadsheets – too strict, too boring, too limited and neutral. Never read them. That said, i don’t read half of the trash in the tabloids, but they keep me entertained and that’s what it’s all about.
I want to be entertained, not bored. I want blood and guts in the text, with hard hitting images. ‘Sack Him Now’ -v- ‘Time to go?’ is a much more cut throat headline and that’s why i love tabloids. No handbrakes on.
So if i didn’t have/love computers, i’d probably be a journalist of some sort. I’d never rule it out, even now. Another area i’d be interested in is Psychology, purely for self gain, not as a career. If i had the time and money, ideally i’d want a degree in IT, Journalism and Psychology 😈
