This is it. A new beginning. A fresh start. Trying something new.
I’ve discussed my disillusionment with academia, and trying to force myself into a “practical” career quite extensively over the past few months. I feel like I’ve finally gotten to the place where I’m ready to take the leap and commit myself into creating things that I truly want to create.
My lovely friend, Arielle, sent me this “Creative Types” quiz, which I promptly took (I love a good quiz) and spent quite a few days mulling over the results. Think of this quiz like an MBTI for creativity - it’s just vague enough to boil people down into eight different categories and just specific enough to provide distinctions between those groups. Though it’s important to take these little quizzes with a grain of salt and not let it totally dictate your entire life, it helped provide me with some much needed perspective.
I am a dreamer. I’m idealistic, romantic, and have my head stuck in the clouds. My glasses are tinted a thousand different shades of rose and can’t help but want to explore every possibility the universe has to offer me. For so many years I’ve tried to push my dreamer instinct to the wayside and follow my head, but something out there keeps pulling me back to those instincts.
So it’s finally time to listen to my gut and see what happens.
Note: The creative types quiz was actually quite fun and although it’s not super scientific or empirical in any way, I still highly recommend taking it. Just to see.
