It’s so easy to forget in the daily crunch, but every now and then it dawns on me that we work in the coolest industry ever. We’re bitter and upset a lot. We complain and criticize. We get screamed at and burnt out. But man, this is a sweet job! Essentially we sit around and think and talk with our friends. All the client really does is give us a topic of discussion. Who else gets to do that and get paid? Alright, so we have to solve some problems here and there. And get tortured at on occasion. And get into bitter arguments on whether it should be called a “squirrel-phone” or “squirrel-o-phone”. But at the end of it we laugh more than we cry. We get tingles more in a month than most people get in a year. Then we go around the world working with the most creative minds on the planet and even celebrities at times. And at the end they slap us with a pretty nice paycheck and some of the most random cool perks of any industry. It’s great to be in advertising. Try not to forget it.
