burning eyes. 1.30am.

Every time I think about how lucky I am to have found planning and the Adcenter, I panic a little bit. I don’t know why. Will I be found out? Surely it can’t be fair that I love this so much and will be getting paid for it one day. Surely I’m cheating the system by feeling like I’m playing with toys and having the time of my life all day, every day, and yet it’s still work. But then I realize – this does exist. It’s real. It’s legitimate. I get to inspire people for a living. And that’s when you can see me running up and down the hallways, because I have no idea what else to do with that rush. It’s too strong for me to stand still.

an Easter egg, just for me!

(click on it)

support always helps.

from my ad partner in crime:

You can do this.
You will have a place to work.
In New York.
Doing what you love.
And finding new things to love.

oh my god.


click here. I promise, you will die.


It might be interesting to do a cultural analysis of instant messaging culture.

1. I wonder where the "I made a typo, here is an asterisk" came from:

johanna: it drives me crayz.
johanna: *crazy

2. a nod to the speed of technology progression:

shana: i mean..online harrassing is so 1999

am i contributing to this?

adcenter vs. immunity

proof that no sleep [will lead to]

run down = low defenses = flu


good thing I love what I do.

coming in the mail today

just to be facetious, I think. But think about it - cell phone in my bag, walking down the road talking on this HUGE rotary phone handle, curly cable and all. It's almost like a tongue-in-cheek poke at the rate of the progression of technology. First it was earpiece with cable, then earpiece that wraps around your ear, then wireless, bluetooth, microchips, cell phones implated into your hand, etc.

It's twenty to four in the morning. I value sleep so much, that whenever I am up this late working, I panic at the same time. "Oh god, four more hours to sleep. Oh god, only three hours left." and so on. But tonight, no. Well, maybe it's because my first meeting isn't until 2.30pm. But it's mostly because I see my portfolio coming together, my life coming together, my confidence in myself coming together.

I made 2 things tonight (among MANY other things).

1. a photo log of my day yesterday.

2. (pardon the green grammar squiggles)

Good night. literally.

I'm a feeler. Both in communication style, and as part of my MBTI type. Don't know what that is? Here is the description from the communication styles assessment:

behavioral focus expression, human interaction, projecting feelings

value orientation family, friendship, loyalty

time sense past

motivated by love, sense of contribution, recognition

behavioral comfort zones human interaction tasks, being "on stage," probing, analyzing others

behavioral discomfort zones structured situations, taking orders, impersonal /scientific, demanding accuracy

hobby orientation social, entertaining, family interaction, fiction, volunteering, beach scene

oral communication personalized, marked voice inflection

written communication unplanned, spontaneous, warm

color preference warm colors

dress preference informal

work environment preference homey, comfortable

work content preference helping professions, acting, selling, cooking, psychology, ministry, retail business

Now, that is almost 100% accurate. especially - behavioral focus, motivation, oral and written communication.

Anyway, with all of this said, I think it's fairly safe to guess that when I feel things, I feel them two to three times more strongly than the average person. When I am happy, I AM HAPPY. Like today. It has been perfect and wonderful. Even when I was sitting next to that huge window at the coffee shop, which caused me to freeze. I didn't care. I was having too good of a time with my life. Oh boy, you probably think I'm nuts, don't you? Anyway, I just got this e-mail from my professor:

Due to the fact that 8 planners are going to NYC AND they are now leaving on Wednesday, Brand You is totally fucked up. I will be back in touch with new dates for this.

This is in reference to the assignment I spoke of in my first ever entry. I am not ecstatic because of the extension, but because of his word choice. totally fucked up. In WHAT other industry would this be okay, from a professor? I am in love. with advertising.

Waking Life... in life?

Okay, this is creepy. I was just watching Waking Life this morning. Now, I am at a tiny table in the corner of a coffee shop, and two people are near me, sitting across from each other, in huge plushy couches, with a coffee table separating them. They are having a conversation. an intense, philosophical, deep one. a la Waking Life. In the same tone of voices as many of the characters in the movie.

I just looked at my watch, and at my computer's clock. nothing wiggling. twenty after three. Then again, I also tried to switch the lamp on and off, and nothing happened.

So which is it?

<3 technology

When I was little (around 4 years old), the thing I wanted the most was Penny's computer book from Inspector Gadget. I used to try to recreate it, using folded pieces of my father's computer paper. I used an orange highlighter to draw the keys and screen. oh, I wanted that computer book. I also liked her little phone screen watch, but the book was my dream.
