I’ve thought to myself many times today, “Graphic design is cool, but it would’ve been way cooler to write great software.” Which might be true—I don’t know.
Then I thought about the other side of that equation: What if, instead of graphic design, I had taught myself software engineering? I’d probably be looking at the design companies and thinking to myself, “Software engineering is cool, but it would’ve been way cooler to be able to design.”
Luckily, I don’t have to live in the painful purgatory between what I am and what I want to be. 1. Striving should never make you feel like shit, and 2. I’m approximately five years old and have plenty of time to continue to gain skills.
So goes the journey.
