Back in action
Let me first clarify that my month away from this blog was not due to heavy drinking, as my previous post suggests. Classes started and simultaneously, I forgot how to do homework, so I’ve spent some time catching up.
And now I’m back. NEW AND BETTER THAN EVER. I feel like a brand new woman. But seriously … I have some news.
My design internship this summer changed everything. I realized that design and art direction, while I love them so, don’t come as naturally to me as other communication skills. Especially in a full-time professional atmosphere with crazy deadlines and busy supervisors, design just wasn’t as fun or easy as I expected.
So there, I’ve admitted it: defeat.
It’s not easy to throw in the towel, but I’m finally there. And I feel so fortunate that I had the chance to try designing in an agency before getting a real job. Now I have time to work towards something new before trying to start my career.
“So what’s next?” you may be asking.
Strategic planning, that’s what.
Well, duh. Everyone already thought I was a planner anyways. But now I’m accepting it. And the more I embrace the title, the more I know that it’s right for me. I have always craved new insight and learning experiences. I have always loved problem solving. I have always been an advocate for collaboration and thorough research. YAY I HAVE FOUND MYSELF.
Hello, nice to meet you. I’m Rachelle, planner-in-training. Get ready, y’all!
