IT Consultant. Used to be on the road 3-4 days a week. My life changed so much due to COVID, that's a huge reason why I went down this path and ended up here...

I don't know how long I can keep this up, starting to have trouble focusing during working hours. I used to love my job and was very driven and ambitious, now I can't wait for the day to be over.

I'm studying social work at the moment, how is that for you? In what field are you working? :)


I work in child protection and permanency...what branch of social work are you interested in? What do you know about social work that makes you think you will enjoy it? How far into your studies are you?

Nonprofit lobbyist. And I feel like a fraud 99% of the time. Everyone is such a go-getter and smart and ambitious, and I feel like every day I fall further and further behind. COVID has been murder on my mental state. I burned out pretty hard last year and the work didn't really get LESS with the new year and new government, just different and also faster somehow. I know I'm incredibly lucky but I just want to sleep for a year.

I'm a freelance graphic design artist. I love my work and greatly prefer working from home than in an office. It allows me to create my own hours and have a good balance of activity and desk time.

 

Currently I'm a BioMed student - decided to go back to uni as being an artist does not guarantee a reliable income.

It's definitely not stable work, I can have months of skimping and saving then get a huge contract. It took many years of struggle and side hustles to establish my portfolio. And to be clear, I don't own a car, I rent, I don't have children, I have a supplemented income due to disability, everything except my computer is old and outdated, and I shop at thrift stores. It's certainly not a glamorous career for me, hahaha!

So I totally feel you. BioMed sounds like an interesting career. Biology always interested me as well. What profession do you want to work in after graduation?
