Last spring I did a bit of work for a builder in Topeka. I generated floor plans, rendered them and even created presentation boards for him to use as marketing pieces during the parade of homes.
Well, I hate to break it to myself, but I don't know how much of that is me. So why, oh why did I pay so much money for this not-so-handy-dandy degree I have? Okay, it is not so much that I don't want to do all of that, but it's the lack of confidence in doing it. It never dawned on me that maybe the confidence would come with experience.
Experience, Experience, Experience!
So, about that part time job. I work at an adorable home furnishing and decor shop in my quaint downtown. I am beyond over qualified and under paid, but I am enjoying it none the less. It's what I like to call a creative outlet/ some good ol' fashion EXPERIENCE! I rework displays, make floral arrangements, discuss furniture with potential buyers, and other basic customer service tasks. I am surrounded by creative people who also love design and love what they do.
