VISCOM1; Why Graphic Design?

Why not graphic design, I ask you.
I love anything to do with typography, (re)branding, or website design. I've had photoshop for years now and from it I started my love for graphic design. I have had a website since sixth grade, and from there began my love of anything graphic design related. I did not realize, at the time, that what I was doing was an actual profession. I've kept my website going since sixth grade, it has had many name, content, and style changes since it's birth, but the current address is www.ianarthur.net. It was not until I got into high school that I realized that what I was doing with my website was something that I could do for a job. Once I came to this realization, I started to do more research into the graphic design field. As I started my search for which college I wanted to go and what field I wanted to go into, I could not see myself doing anything but graphic design. I was nervous to take something I had done as a hobby for almost six years, and turn it into my actual profession. I was worried that I would quickly come to hate graphic design and ruin my love for it. But at the same time, I could not see myself doing anything but that. The more I thought about it, the more I comfortable I became with the thought of turning my hobby into my profession.
