For a while I have struggled as what to do with my life, job, education, career etc. I had thought I wanted to do a PH.D. and given the chance I still would; the end of my MA is approaching quicker than I'm ready for and I will really miss academia.

I suppose the problem is that my area of research (typography/language/punctuation) is already whittled down to a finite niche area and in some respects I've shot myself in the foot. Yet, I've loved every minute of reading, trying to understand what punctuation is, how it works, how to break it and put it back together, though what for?

I'm a bit lost. I'm not a graphic designer, nor am I a typographer in the true sense of the word. I'm a creative, I know that. I love language though I don't know if I can write, I haven't studied linguistics though the research has lead that way. So what to do?

I know I'm so lucky, that my educational outcome isn't reliant on needing a job straight away. Yet I still want to produce and be creative as otherwise all this hard work could have been for nothing.

I guess I have some more thinking to do!
