The most interesting designers are the ones who take conventional standards of how things should be done and throw them out the window: they make their own rules!
Newsflash: you get to make your own rules in life too! Instead of living by someone else’s checklist (college, desk job, marriage, house, baby, desk job, desk job, desk job, retirement), what if you made your own rules up for your life and lived on your own terms?
Some things to consider might include a career beyond the 9-to-5 corporate world (hi, Erin!) or living abroad a la Jordan Ferney.
The specifics of what you do aren’t as important as doing it your own way: without worrying about how everyone else is getting by or what other people think. If it makes you shine, follow it! That magic will never lead you astray.
