Everywhere I’ve gone in life I’ve known everyone and been the “go-to-guy.”
School board trustee, public speaker, university student president, TV show host, frosh week coordinator, fundraiser etc.
Today, I am 1 and a half months into an internship at an awesome agency. It’s been an adjustment to say the least.
I make zero dollars a day, I am not known by everybody – in fact not known by most. People don’t come to me for advice, in fact I seek it out.
But what I don’t make in dollars I more than make up for in learning about life, myself and the advertising industry.
Anyway, this is all to say that while the internship is tough I am loving it. With a month and a half left, having overcome a cold, I’m psyched.
My abject poverty is relieved by my freelance work which is picking up more and more these days. Up to four clients now. Sweet ass, super sweet.
In the meantime I will keep running (another half marathon next weekend), volunteering with the needy, biking all over the city, singing in a choir and living a life full of passion.
Happy Thanksgiving peeps!
