hi yoshi! i’m currently in college, and i am interested to know what some key things to pick up on and learn to do that college usually doesn’t prepare for once we enter the real world? interested in doing anything art/media/music based once i finish. :)
hello! well, for one thing, learn that hard work pays off. school doesn’t teach you street smarts, so use your wit and common sense. and believe the saying "what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger." for every "bad" experience, remember that you’ve learned something and use it to your advantage. it’s a tough world out there, just stare it in the face and conquer it!
i currently work as an intern at a boutique ad agency. i’ve been dabbling in social media and project management. what are some skill sets needed to get in to the major advertising agencies as an interactive producer? is it focused more on user experience
To be quite honest, its not only about general knowledge of technical, digital production, but a lot has to do with making logistical decisions. Knowing when and how to say no, being able to work with a big team and manage everyone’s times and priorities – including your own. Obviously having a good sense of the best practices of user experience is a plus, at the end of the day, its how you can creatively execute amazing work and solve problems when red flags arise. Best of luck to you!
First and foremost, compliments on your personal style. I admire the balance between the feminine (but not overdone) and tomboyish look that you got goin’ on! Could you describe the evolution of your style? Like what were your phases like?
=) Thanks!! My evolution of style? Well, I’ve ALWAYS been a tomboy… that song "anything you can do, I can do better" is always chiming in the back of my head lol! I was also a sneaker head (who am I kidding, I still am), and I love to be comfortable. I always try to "keep up with the latest trends," but at the end of the day, its really all about comfort and keeping true to my personal style – which is, I guess a tomboy chic… I hope that answers your question??? =X
i completely admire your drive and ambition its so inspirational! i remember in one of your posts you mentioned that you studied abroad. where did you study abroad to and was the cost worth the experience?
Thanks so much! I studied in Budapest, Hungary. It was an easy decision because I had never been to Eastern Europe and thought it would be the best way to experience another culture while studying at the same time. DEFINITELY worth it. I have no doubt in my mind that traveling almost every summer before I graduated from college, and studying in a different country helped me become the person I am today =)
When I was younger, yes. Especially if you’re dealing with jealous bf’s or gf’s. Never happened to me personally, but I’ve witnessed a few "why did you friend so and so?" or "who’s THAT that commented on your photo?" etc etc.
Been debating on whether or not to invest in the sam edelman zoes for months now. I am all about being comfortable and I’ve read mixed reviews on their comfort. Do you find them comfy? How long do you think you can last in them walking wo feeling any pain
I love mine! I wear mine at work for the whole day with no problems, but I bring a change of shoes to wear before and after work when I have to hop on the train. I don’t recommend wearing them if you’re going to walk around town however lol. Also they’re much cheaper than they were before =)
Oooh good question… I would probably be cooking/baking, taking more photos, riding my bike or moped more, and spending way too much money shopping!
