I'm just talking to myself. We do that sometimes, me and myself.

The future freaks me out

2 Comments

Yes, this is another rambling post about me growing up into my professional self.  Sue me..a blog is supposed to be annoyingly self-serving sometimes.

So I was sitting here reading my advertising textbook and I started to freak out about what happens when I actually have to grow up and work in the advertising industry.  My ideal (more accurately, safe, not-out-of-the-box) job (as of now) would be working in a small agency back in Pittsburgh.  My book references big campaigns and large agencies, mostly in New York.  And it scares the shiz out of me.  I mean, this is not the life that I want and this book makes me freak out that working at a big place in NYC is the only option.  Granted, that was once an aspiration of mine but I pulled my head out of the clouds, or wherever, and realized that unfortunately my life isn’t a Sex and the City spinoff.

As such, I totally resist reading and put off outlining the chapters when I do read.  And it’s only the beginning.  It just makes me want to take a nap.

Mmkay, that’s enough of that.  I’ll be back to my snarky self tomorrow.  Stay tuned.
