That was such an odd topic but that’s what happens when you’re an odd person like myself. One has said that I’m mellow dramatic but then again he’s allowed to (I love you too General!)
So this post comes from several happenings. Recently I had a meeting with my boss just to check up on me. I think he was concerned that I just get my work done and go home without ever complaining about anything. I like to bottle up what’s bothering me, mostly because I’m passive aggressive. But who isn’t?
Yes, I know you aren’t so kudos to you!
If you are passive-aggressive you’ve got a friend in me. That was a toy story reference in case you were lost.
My boss recommended that I quit with the creatively confused college girl stuff but this is a once in a lifetime thing and I have big dreams for this name. Trademark soon to come. The name of my blog itself was an off happening; well kind of.
Here’s the story
I was in a communications class and we were looking at new media technology and the assignment was to create a blog. We had the option to give the blog whatever name we chose to, so the blog could just be your name or a topic you think will be the subject or relating to your posts. I like to be different, but I was actually not in the mood so I decided against using my name or a topic I could write about on a regular basis. I couldn’t understand why I was struggling with something that seemed so simple and I was running out of time too. And right then and there, after one of my classroom breakdowns, I decided to use alliteration to showcase my creativity and nonconformist tendencies. I was just being lazy though…the same thing happened with my logo.
The things that I make in photoshop usually result from wanting to give up and making a bunch of mistakes that I think look good. I really don’t care what anyone else thinks, at least not until I’m in bed and struggling to fall asleep and my brain decides to replay every questionable decision I’ve ever made.
was another assignment that I had absolutely no interest in doing, but as the good meme goes:
I usually feel better after my little tantrum and get a good grade. My logo was the result of a mistake but I played it off as if I totally wanted it to look that way and I’ve stuck to it for the past three years and will probably stick to it for another thirty years.
My current odd thing is my personality and blog being used to promote a job site and give job search advice. I remember at a very young age when Facebook was a thing, declaring that I was fluent in sarcasm. Its one of the things that haunt me on a regular basis but look where it’s gotten me. I’m known for saying weird things and it attracts people to me; I am their breath of fresh air.
My job is to be the odd one that holds the group together. Like I legit get paid to be myself, the nonconformist who’s afraid to physically take chances. But give me pen and paper or my laptop and I’ll blow your mind or just make you chuckle.
Did you actually expect this post to make a tonne of sense? Welcome to my world of confusion, pull up a chair. You’ll need a seat to tolerate my thoughts and ramblings.
