the big news.

How in holy hell is it Thursday already?
Lots has happened since Monday!
After 6 months of struggling with... I guess, just life, it finally paid off. I was offered the job. The dream job.
When I walked into the agency for the first time for my interview, I felt totally out of my league-- a gigantic loft with fashionable people walking around, TVs on the wall showcasing all of their different clients and big name brands, employees from all over the world-- and me, some no-name girl from Westchester coming from a small, no-name agency. It was never going to happen.

But it did.

Starting the 19th I'll be working at a strictly fashion/beauty advertising agency in the city on a pretty major account (that I, unfortunately, can't divulge-- but it's one that I've aspired to purchase since I first discovered it when I was 15; talk about living the dream).

Truthfully, I almost didn't take it. I had another opportunity that I knew I could tackle without question, but this. This was the big leagues. It sounds ridiculous, but I was petrified. What if, despite my experience and ideas, I failed?


I would have been a moron had I not taken it, despite how scary it seemed. I think my inner self knew that. And Frank didn't mind reminding me of that that when I called him crying yesterday.

Don't get me wrong, I am over the moon, but it's still scary--all of it. The leaving my friends, the being new, the fast-paced no BS environment I'm heading into, the responsibility. And, I won't lie, telling my coworkers and dealing with everything all at once hasn't been the easiest experience. I'm sure some people are upset-- and some aren't making my last 2 weeks any easier.
But, I guess that doesn't matter- it's not their show anymore.

It's finally my time.
 
The thing is, this job will probably eat me up and spit me out without a second thought. I'll be an insomniac living off of coffee and hard work... and I truly can't wait! It's nice to be scared and excited-- that's how I know I'm headed in the right direction.

So here's to new opportunities and all that is ahead! They may take longer than you'd like, they may seem like they're never going to happen, and you may endure them with little support and adrenaline pumping through your veins, but they'll arrive and remind you why the other things didn't work out. It'll be worth it. Pinky swear.
