Creative Outlet

I need more creative outlets. I think a lot of us wait for someone to give us permission to pursue our interests and passions. There’s never been a time when it’s easier to just do it yourself.

When I was in elementary school it was mostly drawing and sketching comic book characters. As a teenager, I developed a love for dance music and taught myself how to DJ. In University I discovered swing dancing and I was hooked! As a young adult, I was in love with the early internet. I learned HTML so I could build my own website. It felt like magic.

I’ve always liked trying new things. I should clarify that last sentence. I’ve always liked trying new things. However, I’ve seen my hobbies, or passions, as completely separate from my day job or what made me money. I haven’t had a lot of focus on getting what I truly want in my career.

I’ve definitely fallen to roles that I loved. Working as a Technical Trainer and Development Specialist comes to mind. Or most of my time working at Apple. You need to try a lot of things before you’ll find something that just clicks. I guess what I’m trying to say is I’m ready to start trying new things again.
