When I first decided that I wanted to be an advertising major at Texas, I dreamed to be a Texas Creative. The classes sounded so fun, the portfolios were amazing, and every student that made it through P3 had a loaded resume and amazing portfolio to take on job interviews.
Oh, how things can change.
One of our main assignments for the prereq for Texas Creative (Adv 325, Introduction to Creativity) was an “Idea Journal”. Needless to say, I did not score to high on it. Apparently my creativity isn’t what its supposed to be for a creative.
So this made me think. Instead of being disappointed about it, I examined my options. I thought about myself, and I asked myself if being a creative was really what I wanted to do with my career, and basically my life. The answer to that was no.
I am an internet geek. I am obsessed with any Apple gadget that hits the market… I’m still crossing my fingers I’ll have an iPad under the Christmas tree, but that’s wishful thinking. I am obsessed with social media. Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare. I want to blog. And I want my blog to be read. I actually look forward to the changes in Facebook, instead of being one of the millions complaining. I’ve grown up with social media, and social media has grown up with me.
With an advertising degree and a minor in business, I think this could work. It sounds like I could have a future in internet marketing, advertising, and branding. And it would actually be something I have fun with and something I’m interested in. Which is esentially my dream job.
I don’t know how I’m going to get this blog read. I don’t know how to rack up hundreds of twitter followers. I’ve been sending out resume after resume hoping to line up some amazing internship. Follow me here. Tell your friends. This is my journey. Oh, the places I will go. Just wait.
