Selected sample paints for a project yesterday. And of the three options we sent, the client chose my palette. : ) As I told the designer who talked me into helping - I feel so validated as a creative individual. I enjoy when I get pulled into the creative design side of my office, but I still remember it's not what I love. It's just a bit more enticing than billing. If my boss has his way, he'll turn me into a full-time accountant/ office manager. If the rest of them have their way - I'll become an interior designer. If those are my two options - I know which one I'm picking. Thankfully, I think there's a third option.
Yesterday I was the HR manager, the bookkeeper, the secretary, the marketing manager, the office manager, the IT person, the design librarian and rep contact, a designer and a photographer. I am unqualified. For all of this! I went to school for English people!! Give me a word doc and walk away.
Today, I'm researching accounting software and design libraries.
Never stop learning. :) I can't deny I have been given a lot of new opportunities here, some of which I like. All of which I may need.
