Hey and welcome to the very last post on this website, most likely ever. It’s been a fun and interesting semester and Art 110 has taught me a lot. To finish up this semester, it couldn’t fit any better than a Design Thinking activity about my future and life and career decisions! In this activity, we were asked to write down 3 possible future me’s with different scenarios. This was based on three questions:
- The thing you currently think you’ll be doing with your life
- The thing you would do if the current thing disappeared tomorrow
- The thing you would do if you were financially secure, and no one would ever laugh, go ahead, what would it be?
For the first question, I think right now I would end up doing some type of work related to the LGBT+ community because I’m myself a part of it and because it’s a very important cause for me. Since I’m a film major and that’s also something I want to work with right now, I would promote the LGBT community through forms of media such as films and the media’s portrait of the LGBT. I would want to promote it and normalize it to a standard where being LGBT is not a thing anymore, it’s just being human. I don’t know if this would ever happen because that’s a very long way to go, but that’s what I want to achieve or start building.
We were also asked to rate 5 scales for each scenario. This was confidence, resources, impact and satisfaction. I’m going to use the scale 1-10.
- Confidence: 7
- Resources: 5
- Impact: 9
- Satisfaction: 8
For the second question, I choose to play soccer because soccer has been a huge part of most of my life and is something I truly love to do. I played soccer for ten years and stopped because I wanted to focus on school. I’ve always loved soccer and will always love playing it so it there’s was something that would disappear tomorrow that I would want to do, it would be soccer. It’s only when I play soccer that I feel completely different, lost in the world without any concern about the real world. I’m a different person because soccer is in many ways my true passion. However, I never wanted to play professional soccer because as soon as it becomes professional, much of the happiness and freedom with it is going to be lost.
- Confidence: 10
- Resources: 4
- Impact: 6
- Satisfaction: 7
For the last question, I think I would have been traveling the world with my closest friends, filming and taking photos of crazy stuff we would have been doing. If money or a “career” wasn’t a big deal, I would live my life to the fullest with people I love, exploring the world for what it really has to offer. I would want to be spontaneous and do a lot od adventurous things and activities such as paragliding, snorkeling, surfing and crazy adrenaline experiences. I would also film or document everything so that I could look back at and enjoy.
- Confident: 9
- Resources: 3
- Impact: 3
- Satisfaction: 10
That was everything for this website. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed this class and everything I’ve learned.
