Two big things happening this week:
The Reveal of my new blog layout!! I've been wanting to redesign for a long time to something simpler and cleaner, and that allowed bigger pictures in the posts, and now the new look is finally here! I'm hoping to add more and more to the blog as time goes by, so keep reading. :)
Tomorrow I have an interiew that I'm really nervous and excited about. Creative Ink is the "student-run integrated marketing communications firm" at Stephens, and they're only accepting two or three new applicants this year. I want to be a part of it so bad. They do advertising work for real clients, so it's crazy great for your portfolio as a designer/marketing student, but I'm mostly excited about being a part of the team. That sounds so Disney, but it's true! It's a group of 12 passionate and driven creatives pulled together to collaborate and work on big projects in inspired ways- I don't know about you, but that's pretty much my dream job scenario anyway.
So I'm nervous. Which is really weird for me- I don't usually get nervous about presentations, performances, or interviews. I'm sure that it's because I've been thinking about it a lot, and that I want the position so badly. Interviews aren't my strong suit out of the public-speaking world, either. I'm usually excited about whatever I'm being interviewed about, and my personality really gets strong when I'm excited. That may sound like a good thing, but I have a lot of personality. People expect you to be nervous or shy during interviews, and when I burst in all energetic and fearless like some golden retriever it's a little off-putting.
Anyway. Despite my butterflies, I'm fairly certain that as long as I play this song in the background while I walk in slow motion to my interview, I'll win.
Wish me luck :)
