How long have you been studying?
1 month in my design course. I studied for a year back in the States, studying two different majors until I chose to come here.
Why did you choose to study design?
I was in a Conservation and Land Management course at TAFE and needed to switch to something else by mid-March to get a refund and this is what I chose from what was available. I also considered interactive digital media, carpentry, and sound production.
Why aren't you liking it?
Maybe my teachers here at Martin College? They don't teach me much and I'm forced to learn lots of things on my own (not the best at). I also hate having my eyes glued to a computer all day.
If you aren't liking it now, why do you want to do something in design then?
I am hoping it's one of those things that gets more interesting the more you go into it. There's tons of different varieties of design and maybe I'll like one. I have always been interested in this kind of stuff:
So maybe I can go do something like that eventually? I don't know.
What are you interested in personally?
Nature, bushwalking, travel, psychology/philosophy, music (listening)
Do you draw?
Are you interested in anything creatively at all?
Music? The thing is, I don't know if I REALLY want to work in design. I won't know until start working, right? I've tried and been interested in lots of things but I don't know what I want to do for a career. I'm 2.5 years out of high school having studied for a year in college which is now useless (cost me $6000) and took out $15,000 to come here (half for the course, half for living) and I'm paying $300/mo on the loan right now so I don't have a lot of time to decide what I want to do. It's a really bad situation.

I just started a Cert IV in Design and I'm really not too into it. It's okay, but I hate being on the computer so much and I don't really have a ton of interest in learning the Adobe suite and everything. So I was wondering, is there any area of design where I wouldn't be on the computer so much learning and working with various software? Is UX design much the same, only involving more coding/scripting/psychology/research?
