#2,478 Creative Challenges.
by Erin Napier
Today I left work feeling spent, satisfied, and encouraged: three of the best feelings a person can have at the end of a long day. I’m feeling so grateful lately for the way the show challenges me creatively every day, for the things I’m learning on the job and the things I’m creating and designing that I’ve never done before, which is expanding my mind and abilities such that they can never go back to the way they were before. It’s like college all over again, but accelerated, where I love all my classes and the professors because they encourage me to be more creative than I’ve ever been before then give me the support system to make the impossible suddenly possible. I have to think fast and make decisions about hood vent designs:
If I want something for these homes that doesn’t fit in the budget, I do what Ben and I have been doing since we met—we make it ourselves and love it more for that reason.
It’s an enormous blessing to learn something new, and in the same measure, to try something new.
I am sad that This Is Us wasn’t on NBC tonight. Are y’all watching it?!
