Welcome to Creative In A Cube!

How does this picture make you feel?

If you’re anything like me, this image conjures up a longing…longing for freedom from the confines of everyday life.

As an artist, this kind of freedom is something you crave. And yet, how do you act as both a responsible adult while also pursuing your dreams?

I created this blog to connect with other creative minds who are currently working a day job while they pursue their artistic dreams.

You’ll find everything from advice on surviving in the cubicle world, to musings on anxiety, giftedness, and sensitivity, to posts that will encourage you to express your most authentic self no matter where you are in your journey.

I Am Still That Little Girl - I feel like I am slowly uncovering the dark jewel that is my underlying sense of self…that self that knows she’s a bad person.

I Really Am Childless-by-Choice - I feel like I may have lied a little bit in my last post, and I’d like to clear things up. I postulated that there are people who would be genuinely happy in their lives both as parents as well as non-parents. I still believe this to be true, and…
