So I’m having a bit of a mid college crisis. It started yesterday when I was researching more about UX design. A career in UX seems so cool and combines my love for design and technology. Also, I would be less likely to starve if the market crashes because everybody will continue to use technology but the rate of building buildings will shrink drastically. It’s kinda a double plus. Honestly, I am totally freaking out inside because I’m so confused, I don’t know what I want to do anymore. I was reading more about what architects do on a daily basis and it’s like filling out documentation and drawing blueprints. I don’t know if I want to do that exactly.
Update on my crisis: I did get to talk to Mindy (she’s awesome) about UX Design and UX research and she gave me a lot of clarity and helped me think through my options and what to do next as far as which classes to take and developing case studies. So my whole dilemma downgraded from a crisis to just a concern. Moving forward I will continue to major in Architecture because I am very happy with my major and I still love architecture. I will apply to some UX industry internships next summer and spring to truly test if it is something I would like to pursue further.
