@brimstoneSalad I was initially doing comic and concept art as a course because I wanted to strive for a career path that would be relatively relaxed/best suit my skill set. I do enjoy creating the illustrations within that fashion, and my peers told me I should push towards that path and create something for myself in the future.

On my first day during induction I realised I made a big mistake, and I regretted picking the course, terribly. It was a 2 week process before I was successfully released, and now I'm pursuing architecture instead. I know I won't enjoy it, and it will definitely bring far more immense stress, but I believe it can provide a better degree in the long term for job opportunities as oppose to what comic and concept art could ever yield.

I should've transferred this year, but for some reason the lady who was in charge of my documents/transfer communication failed to respond. Not sure why, but I got the letter which confirmed my place on the course, now I have no other choice but to apply next year.

@Frank Quasar Sounds like you made the right choice! Sorry to hear about that administrative mess up.

@brimstoneSalad

Found this video where Dr. AVI discussed minimal moral realism with a guy known as "Realistic Nihilist". Pretty interesting discussion, to say the least. Feel free to watch if you're ever bored and have the time to do so. I think this is one of the only few times I've found an in-depth discussion on this.

(Ignore the time-stamp that's there. The entire video goes over the discussion)
