my portfolio for copywriting
and one more time with an actual hyperlink!
I have nothing on it yet, but soon sooooonnn
i thought I’d post some cool fun stuff that I did at work that my prof threw aside.
We were encouraged to put our bad work on the wall to reflect on what’s bad about it or what about it didn’t work. these two assignments are what i made for my creative thinking class. it’s not that they were bad it’s that my prof didn’t bother to read it because he felt bored by the first line
this is my wall …
this is a comic i drew for class. the first line had to be “Ed, don’t leave me” and the last line had to be “I love you”
This is a love letter I wrote for class. I used song titles of various bands/artists to put together a poem. I really liked what I did here but alas it wasn’t interesting enough.
So much has happened since my last post.
I got into grad school for Copywriting at VCU Brandcenter
Since then it’s been a headache of looking to lease an apartment. There’s an endless amount of phone calls and paperwork and money handling and lacking a social security number. Well it’s only been a week and we haven’t secured a place yet, which is normal I suppose. At least it’s not like it’s New York City.
Something else happened that week as well, I was let go at my job. Man, it was really surprising for me because they were at the busiest point in their season and they let me go! It was really unprofessional on their part. No matter how much they disliked me they shouldn’t have done that, really not a professional place to work. They disliked me so much that they gave me 2 weeks pay instead of a 2 weeks notice.
Well I learned a lot about working and working environments. I learned that most companies want you to be mediocre, not too great, not too bad, obedient and not cause any trouble. Because being good at your job means nothing to them. I think given my personality I won’t succeed too well in most offices. But I did learn a lot about interpersonal relationships so at least I know when to keep my mouth shut. Oh wells, it’s fine for now. Luckily I got in grad school..phew..
So I’ve been hanging at home for two days now and I’m bored out of my mind. I started to play Restaurant Story.
This is my Restaurant, please add me if you have it, because I’m trying to build a sushi cart or something my ID is lainholic
I also started to watch arrested Development. Whenever I am chatting with my future roommate about some lease issue I just put it on while we chat so I stress less. It’s been pretty helpful so far.
I feel like being a little bit materialistic and lazy lately. I just want to really get into a drama or something so I can just chill out for a while. I want to be less stressed in general.
I know this is a good move, a great move for me. All the difficult parts are going to pay off eventually or if they don’t what can you do?
I feel like I’ve matured a bit when it comes to not blaming everything on everything else. I’ve felt like, oh okay if you got ripped off or got cheated out of money or something else, it’s okay because these sort of things happen. Having a positive life attitude is the most important thing that you can have.
Even though I think I’m being all chill and whatever I am writing this with a headache….
NO ONES GONNA BRING ME DOWN
so more BS is happening at work
……….good thing im made out of steel
im in this giant cloud of negativity and it’s not goooood at all
as everyone knows, i really dont like my job right now and it’s been giving me a lot of trouble. but i think i am going to try to find a happy medium of IDGAF. It’s wednesday already so I’ll just try to cruise through the rest of the week because so many great things are happening on Saturday for me!
I’ve been writing a lot at work, at least an hour each day, 4 or 5 hand written pages. Here’s a sample page of shitty writing to show you….
I am also trying to think up a pen name but god so hard when you’re Asian. Any suggestions? I like the idea of having Alt as a last name. I don’t know why….
AH one day at a time, balance, it’s all about balance and…eating well and getting rid of unnecessary headaches in a reasonable manner.
edit: the new novel will be the ULTIMATE BILDUNGSROMAN
i’m at work
i’m always blogging at work so I don’t waste my precious off-time.
Or rather i’d want to be paid for doing all the internet things i am doing anyway
I started to write a new book! HAND WRITTEN MANUSCRIPT! I have never felt so good or confident about writing for a while now. Writing long hand can be tremendously boisterous towards one’s self esteem. If you type, you tend to read back more often and delete more often. But when you write by hand, it’s literally a laborious process, hence you’re easier on yourself and you tend to keep more. That’s all I’m going to say about it for now. If I talk too much about it, I’ll hype myself up in my own head, and it’ll be a bad thing.
I haven’t been job hunting even though I scroll through my RSS feed and daily emailed job listings every day. I can’t seem to bring myself to apply for anything even though I desperately
want need to.
At work lately I’ve been having a meeting every friday, almost. All I do is talk about BS and what I’m unsatisfied with. I don’t like these meetings mind you, but I suggest it to my supervisor because if I don’t I’ll get stepped on the next week. The best defense is offense right?
I also find it pretty ridiculous that I have to talk for 45 minutes just to see if I can get a “normal” lunch time (i.e. not at 2 or 3 PM )
Every little thing I have to fight for, reasonable lunch hours, full time hours. Even during my last meeting my supervisor told me that I have to get ready for winter, as in, we’re going to significantly cut your hours because too freaking bad. Nepotism is too obviously visible where I work.
But since I’ve let go of the entire situation, as in, IDGA F what you think, I’m going to eat on time, I’m going to do things for myself and not for anyone else.
I’ve felt a loooottt better.
But it’s still a horrible place to work.
