Start drawing again in your free time.


Bring a notepad around. When you are getting a coffee and just sitting down outside getting ready for work (this infers that you get up early for work to leave time to relax)... get your pad out and think of anything. The look of your coffee cup. The conversations you hear, the sound of the cars, the thought of gum under your seat, it raining even though its sunny out, the end of the world is in a few seconds... anything. Things like that could set you off on weird ideas and lead you to your creative desires.


Try and pick up where you left off... just find a steady job and maybe follow your passions while you have free time.

Why not completely switch careers? Go back to Uni and do art or something connected to it perhaps? Or think back to when you were a child, what did you want to be then? Perhaps you will find where your passion lies there.


There is no need for you to continue to do something you don't like for the rest of your life and always wish you had done such and such. The time to start making those changes is now, while you are still young enough to reap the rewards for the rest of your life.

Agree with both. If you enjoy art, find a way to bring it back into your life. Explore if this is something you still enjoy!


Plus, there's no need to torture yourself. But I also understand your feelings of uncertainy about career options. Are these individuals who are giving you advice working within the fields they are suggesting (or know someone who is)? Maybe you need to do some job shadowing to get a feel for what they are like. I think it's also ok to simply take a job to see what it's like. If you think you might enjoy marketing, take a job in the field and stick with it for a year. It may help steer your next job choice.


Plus, don't rule out other fields (ie engineering, nursing, IT, ect) just because your degree doesn't allow you to work in these areas. If you think they may interest you, go back to school and get a second degree in something else.


Best of luck!
