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.

What Is Gifted? - What does it mean to be gifted? Did you know that some gifted people don’t feel particularly intelligent? They see the potential of the human mind, calculate where they are in relation to that, and then logically conclude that no, they aren’t really all that bright. They’re simply smarter than…

To the Good Men - To all the brave, true, and incredible men who I’ve had the privilege of knowing in my life, I hope you know how much you are loved. In this time where it feels like your very morality is being questioned left and right, I hope you, Good Men (you know…

Perspective, Pompoms, and Chicken Noodle Soup - Today I attempted to simply observe people, rather than assess their potential for violence and vitriol. It was fun. First, I saw a short, older, slightly unhappy-looking man walk by. He was wearing worn-out black jeans, a worn-out black jacket, and a worn-out grungy-looking backpack. He was also wearing a…

Keep Doing Your Art - It’s been a while since I posted anything. I’ve been neglecting my art: writing, in favor of other exciting things that have been happening for me; my boyfriend and I are moving in together! So, naturally, every ounce of my free time has been filled with the logistics that accompany…
