i think my blogs are in the wrong order, again, sorry.

So creativity part two well i er don't know where to go from the last time.

well i suppose since last time, we had that talk on creativity, and i also found out that without meaning creativity is non existent, it can also be belittled by others and therefore ruined which I'm sure is what that guy from the video was talking about when he was saying that school education has ruined creativity. Which i agree with in some aspects, i mean if the a child is seen to be good at art by the teacher then their art will be put on the wall. I remember on more that one occasion some children in my primary school class had their work put up and other children when they asked about their work were actually told that theirs wasn't as good as the displayed work which is probably where he was coming from.

He also said that "children are being taught out of creativity" i also agree with this as I wasn't really taught how to draw by any of my teachers but as i said above i was told when a picture was "wrong" through my grades. A "better" picture would get a better grade. So that pretty much taught me how i shouldn't draw, not how I should.

I believe that creativity can be shown in many different ways, like i said in my last blog, i think that u don't really need to draw to be creative and that art is not the only output or conduit of creativity. However ideas can be creative as well but i think that its what u do with the idea and how u present it, in your head creative thoughts are pretty much pointless.

I have to apologise again that this isnt as long as id have liked.

right i think that the subject for this blog is "where i want to be in the future".
Now I know that most people who have come through this course have always said the want to go into game design, making games and the such like. Now don't get me wrong i do too but there are other things i want for my future too.
I don't just want to go into a games company, I would be happy in most jobs, and grateful. I would be more grateful if the job i did get was in the industry i had trained for 3 years to be in, but a jobs a job, i suppose.

I however also want other, non job related stuff like a family, i mean Ive always thought that its quite pointless having a career if your going to die alone, wow that's quite morbid but that's how i feel, and since this blogs about careers, i wont keep talking about it.

Drawing for me has always been very important and as far as i can remember all I've ever really done is draw and sketch, also all I've ever really wanted was to draw for a living.
when i was younger i remember saying that i wanted to be an artist and this course is just me narrowing that fields of work down.

So i suppose in all, i would love to ultimately end up in a career which involves drawing, but i suppose the recent times any job is something to be grateful for.
and I'm sorry if this blog hasn't been as long as some of the others but this subject of "the future" scares me a bit.
