Finding my calling

signage MelbourneI really don’t like my job. And it’s not that I don’t like where I work, or the repetitiveness of it all, or I hate my boss or anything like that. It’s that I genuinely, truly, deep down in my soul, hate my chosen career. I messed up, okay? I was a kid, they said pick, and I picked blindly, just as I blindly followed my path all the way here. And now I’m just sick of it. I can’t do it any more, I’m literally dying of boredom here.

In all the time I’ve spent procrastinating at work, I’ve been trying to think of what exactly I should do, if I’m not going to do this. For a while I was stuck, with no idea of what I was going to do, and then a saw a sign.

I have to be honest, I’ve never noticed the signage in Melbourne particularly. Not because it’s not good, or anything, but signage is usually something that you just skate over quickly, that you don’t pay much attention to. But on the way home about a week ago, it was almost like the heavens parted and my path became clear to me. It was a sign – in every sense of the phrase.

So that’s what I think I’m going to do. Of course, I want to try and find a niche, if possible. I’ve been looking through different portfolios and things like that, and by the looks of it, LED signage in Melbourne is a market that’s been largely underdeveloped. Perhaps that’s something I can go into. In any case, the first step in the exercise is just to find some kind of course, which is why I came here in the first place. Hopefully, I can find the kind of thing I’m looking for.
