I have always been a big fan of the work-at-home jobs that some of the people in my life have to do. I can get up and work, or I can take care of my daughter while my husband finishes up. The fact is that it is often a lot more fun to be a costume designer than a cashier.
I think I may be the only one in my family who’s ever loved the idea of being a costume designer. I love the process of creating costumes, the creative and artistic process. There are a few things in this world that I love more than just being a costume designer. I don’t want to say which one though, because we all have different reasons for loving the idea of being a costume designer. It’s great to see people like J.J.
I love how people always find something to complain about about the fact that we cant make costumes for ourselves. They always say I should be modeling, but since we all have costumes in our home, we should just make them…
I can relate to that, but I think I’ve found my favorite reason to want to be a costume designer. It is that I feel like I have a creative bone in my body, which makes it hard for me to go to school and just sit at a desk all day. I feel like the only thing that I can do in school is study, and I don’t think that I would ever want to be a teacher.
My favorite thing about this interview is seeing a conversation that is more about what makes someone a little bit more creative than a lot of other things. There was a discussion about the fact that while people have a hard time choosing a career, that it isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Everyone can do something creative that is related to their field.
The fact that we spend so much time not knowing what we are passionate about, or what we want to do, is not a tragedy, it’s a blessing. We are all capable of great things, and we all have the potential to be the next amazing person. We can all be artists, scientists, writers, chefs, or whatever you want to call yourself.
I don’t think I understood this point until I was in my early 20s. Why are some of us artists, scientists, or creative types so obsessed with it? It’s not just because creative stuff is fun to play with and it’s fun to imagine. It’s because, somehow, we feel it’s our calling. We feel that we are somehow destined to go on and create art, or do something that will lead us to fame or fortune, or something.
I see a lot of people who say that its their calling to do something creative but I think the problem is that its not really a calling. It’s not like you are saying “I can’t put that down.” It’s like you are saying “I need that to go on.” Its not just “I want to be creative” or “I’m going to write a novel.
The problem is that the word ‘calling’ is the wrong word. I have to admit that I don’t really feel called to do anything. I mean, I’m not a writer and certainly can’t do anything creative, but I feel like I am supposed to be doing something. Like I am just there in my own head all day being creative and somehow I have to come up with something to keep me from being bored. Its almost like I am trapped in a world of my own making.
I’m not sure what you mean by “creative.” Does that mean you have to act it, or just be creative? Im not sure I understand what you mean by “acting.
