I have something to tell, I never told here on instagram. Everyone who’s following me, but don’t know me in person, don’t know, that my regular job is working in a hospital as a psychiatric male nurse. Since over 7 years I’m doing this already. But I always wanted to work in a job, where I can get creative, doing something artistic. After my graduation 2010, I just slipped into this field.
My graduation wasn’t good enough to study art or illustration on a university. And my art skills weren’t good enough to get work as freelancer. So I decided to do something for the community.
But it never fullfilled me entirely. There was always the need for creative work. So in winter 2017, I decided to give me the chance to change my career way to the “right” direction. I applied for a apprenticeship as a media designer at a adverticing agency. I didn’t thought, I would even get a reply. But I got one. They loved my work and gave me direct an internship for two weeks. It was awesome. The two most fullfilling working weeks in my entire life. And I didn’t even know anything what I was doing. But they gave me some illustration jobs and I think, they liked it because in the end they gave me the apprenticeship. And now I quit my safe hospital job.
I have to start completly new. With much less money and a lot to learn. But I was never so happy and hopefull like now.
What I want to say is:
If you’re not happy where you are right now, with your job, your art skills or anything else in life, give yourself the chance to change. Just be brave... wow that all sounds so corny.
