Being creative in a corporate 9-5 job? Oh, that’s me! I wish that I were good enough at sewing or knitting or writing to photographing to make a living. But the reality is I am well compensated in an un-creative, un-fun 9-5 job. And I’m actually good at this un-creative, un-fun 9-5 job. So. In between meetings and emails and conversations, I list my next projects. I think of color schemes. I try to inventory supplies based on memory.
I work to live, not live to work. I have found a job that I mostly tolerate and sometimes enjoy. It gives me the means to support my family and pursue my hobbies.
