LIFE AFTER “GETTING OUT”

“Do you have a job?” It’s the question everyone gets asked after graduating college. It’s the question every graduate hopes to say “yes” to. But, it is not my case.

Remember that crazy looking graph I mentioned in my blog a few months back? Well, it is part of an independent study with Chris Hardy. I will be exhibiting three furniture pieces through Modern Atlanta in early June. I have one piece completed and currently working on the second. I am excited for the opportunity and expect to create awareness on the issues I am targeting.

I may not have a formal job, but I am always working. I was privileged with an interview today with another coming next week. The great thing about being a designer is that you’re never just a designer. I am a photographer, a forger, an anthropologist, a researcher, a cinematographer, a curator, a tinkerer, a sketcher, a storyteller, and so much more. I won’t let any opportunities go to waste, and I certainly won’t let anything inhibit me expanding my skillset and widening my career. I am confident in my abilities, and as long as I have that, I am capable of a great many things.
