Pursuing Interior Design

Dang, I didn’t think I’d make the deadline for turning in my interior design assignments but I guess I work relatively quickly under pressure after all! That’s not to say that the work I did was all correct or all great but if I have to resubmit anything I think it’s fair enough considering how lengthy this module was. Honestly I’m just hoping my tutor takes a few days to assess my work before giving me feedback. I could really use a few days to chill out, guilt-free.

Yesterday I spent a good half hour pouting and complaining about my course. The first four modules were inspiring and I could totally see myself pursuing a career in interior design. I approached each module with fresh eyes, a clear mind, and I was excited to learn! I wish I could say the same for the last three modules. The last three modules haven’t been as encouraging and I think it’s largely down to cramming too much into each module and expecting it to be completed in twenty-one days. It feels like the work is never-ending because by the time I turn in my assignments the next module begins. I was hoping for more flexibility with starting each module but that’s just not the case. It’s become such a burden and I think I’ve grown to really resent a lot of the different aspects of this course to the point where I’ve begun to question whether or not I would enjoy being an interior designer for a living.

I feel like right now I am really struggling to manage all of the different stressors in my day-to-day life so I couldn’t really imagine adding to that with a freelance interior design job. Ideally I would work for a company and create concept/presentation boards for clients although whether or not that job is common is another story. I suppose I don’t have to get worked up about this until later on down the line but right now it’s frustrating to trudge through an unsatisfying online course.
