A Whole New Job

Everyday, I find myself thinking of a whole new job for myself. Right now, I want to become a Color Linguist. Yesterday, after running downtown and finding (yet another!!) old stash of millinery goods, I wanted to become a hat designer. When I see Alexis Bittar's jewelry at Nordstrom, I want to become a jewelry designer. A couple of months ago I wanted to work at the Magic Castle here in Hollywood. Visiting old friends in New York, I wanted to become an artist with a loft in Brooklyn. It's a curse, I want to try so many things. When I drive by Joe Blasco Makeup Center on Hillhurst, that's right, I want to become a make-up artist. The list goes on and on. Then I got an e-mail from Moda yesterday saying "When are we going to see the new fabric and products for the Fall line?" and I thought - Oh yeah, that's right, I'm a fabric designer right now! I love it.

You have a great job with your amazing shop and designing for Moda!! but I do the same thing - I get so excited about how many cool and fun things there are out there and want to try everything!!

I am like that too. I joke with my friends that I have creative ADD because one day I am a jewelry designer, the next day a painter, a potter, a doll maker, a print maker, a knitter, a photographer, and on and on.

It's good to be able to do so many things, I know you'll agree. It makes life ever so much more interesting.

There are so many interesting and exciting things in the world to try - I'm much the same - one day I want to design houses, the next be a chef, then write books, and I've always thought being a spy would be fun.

I just don't get these people who say that life is boring.

when you grow up...

I tend to want to live everywhere I visit, specially if friends live near. So I am still contemplating moving to Santa Fe, NM; Martha's Vineyard, MA; Calistoga, CA; Glen Arbor, MI or emigrating to Manly, NSW, Australia. I guess it's a wonderful thing to be so enthused about new things to do and places to be!

I catch myself saying "when I grow up..." all the time. It is only recently that I have started to become aware of doors that are now closed forever. I'm pretty sure at this point I'll never be part of a famous circus act. But maybe - when I grow up.
Best wishes,
Karima

Well besides "creative ADD" like
Cottage Way of Life said I think I read somewhere that you are a Libra. Now I don't put a lot of stock in all of that but, I'm a Libra too and I thought I was the only one who wanted to be everything. Well, at least everything that entails beauty and creativity!!

You're right it is a curse...But at least you already do something you love, something that satisfies you creativity hunger. But what about those who don't have the necessary conditions and when they think of a job, they see not something that helps them leave a creative trace in their lives and in the lives of others, but a struggle to have the bare necessities? It's frustrating :(
