For the better part of this semester I had been extremely frustrated. Frustrated with myself for not having as much work done as I would have liked. Frustrated with my University for not providing me with any sort of direction on what I should be doing to actually get a job or internship. Frustrated with the seniors I had encountered for their seeming lack of interest in what they were studying (reminder to make a short post on ‘working’ portfolios’).
In late February that all changed.
I became intensely introspective. What I was frustrated with was not my lack of work, lack of guidance and lack of inspiring people around me; I was frustrated with myself for not doing anything about it. So I began reading.
Reading blogs, poring over agency websites, finishing an entire textbook about advertising in a little over a week. This led me to meeting with professionals around the city and refining my book from “The Big Green Monster” to something representative of me. The last two-month period was the most eye opening experience I have had in my entire life.
Over the coming days I will be posting about the websites and blogs that helped get me out of my rut. I can only wish that they are as beneficial to you as they were to me.
