I love that we live in the age of youtube but it's also so hard sometimes not to compare when I see others doing so well. I always think about whether it was the right choice, pursuing design and art as a career. I don't think I could ever be the best at what I do. Good enough is already so hard.

I'm trying to work on not belittling myself because I've come far from where I was before but some days like today, with this murky warm weather I think too much and criticise too much.

Omg housemate is back. Need to break the news to him that we're moving out! Le sigh, I actually like our place but the rent really is too high fir two unemployed grads haha.

GingerbreadV Helloooo! βœ‹πŸ» I’m in the design field as well and just wanna drop you some encouragement. I been thru the same emotions during the job hunting period.. which was a real struggles waiting and wondering why no companies get back. Worst is I switched from a different field to design so I can’t give up no matter whatπŸ˜‚ but eventually offers will come, slowly and surely. so think positive! πŸ‘πŸ»

GingerbreadV @missw yea full time illustration job is damn hard to find! It will be more like a dream job if there is haha. Yea there’s more job opportunity for graphic design, thou it can get mundane 😩 aha I missed being with kids but not so much of the under appreciation in ech. But I guess every industry has it own pros and cons!
