In reply to: Big question, a bit off topic, though not completely... posted by Joan on October 28, 2002 at 02:07:27:

Creativity is not and should not be limited to artistic endeavour.
One can be creative in *any* field. Be it a doctor finding a new way
to treat a patient to a company president changing the Holiday party
rules every year.

I'm a technical writer, so while I can't be creative in the artistic
sense, I have to be creative laying out the manuals. They have to
look nice, give the proper information and fit! I got to be creative
when I first started because the manuals prior to me were UGLY. Now
they are stylin'. =)

Whatever you decide to do (and you aren't limited to that one forever-
my major in English but I do payroll consulting on the side. I did
accounting for a music store for years before coming to this, a jog I
*love*.) you'll get your chance to be creative. You may despise your
first job. You'll have to be creative to get around that. You'll have
to make your life creative enough so that bad job doesn't consume
you. But hopefully, you will luck up and get a job that not only
suits you, but teaches you things that will help in future jobs. Hey,
I learned how *not* to run a business from my former job. I also
learned the power of "thank you" from my second job. And where I'm at
now, I've learned that there are a few companies out there who
realise that you've got a life outside of work. Being completely
happy with my job has not stifled my creativity at all; the jobs that
made me miserable didn't either- I forced myself to see that misery
in a different light. In other words, I paid my dues to get the job
I've got now. And that is one hell of a creative way to look at it!

Peace and best luck,
