I found this interesting post on a blog I frequent. What are your thoughts on creativity?
Creativity seems to scare a lot of people. Probably because it can’t fill out a spread sheet or get you a job where you wear a suit everyday, things that a majority of the world considers “normal”. I can’t tell you how many people have told me I’m wasting my life because I am pursuing a creative degree. That’s an odd idea seeing as they all have jobs where they relentlessly seek profits at all cost and will die making lots of money and having run over countless people to get it. I plan to die having helped other people live a happier, more enjoyable life. So who’s wasting their life?
