Article: How a Non-creative Day Job Can Help Your After-hours Arts Work
Off the back of Kit's brave post about normalising your day job, I came across this really applicable article on The Cusp, by Sonia Nair. Having a day job as a creative can seem like a drag, counter-intuitive, and oftentimes, degrading. As with many things in life, and as Kit learned, it’s a matter of perspective. If you constantly treat your day job like it’s a means to an end and a pure necessity only to help you pursue your creative career, then you may be missing out on some valuable opportunities and insights. This article introduces some real advantages to having a day job, especially those jobs that are completely unrelated to your creative work.
