You know how when you were younger and fighting with your brother(s)/sister(s) your mom would say “I don’t care who did what- don’t come out of this room until you two can get along!”
Well government- The above picture is my mother speaking. And she will make you eat soap (I know- I’ve had some before) so just go and fix this
shit (sorry, mom) stuff, will you?
Not really sure how I got this old.
I mean, I sometimes get asked if I’m a summer intern. If we’re at lunch with co-workers and we sit in the bar area, I’ve been asked by our server to see my I.D…. when I didn’t even order a cocktail. However, somehow, I just said my farewells to my 3rd intern, and I just had my first job shadow….
and WHEW. It was a relief. Apparently at her last job shadow, the guy sat a seat behind his and he worked for 8 hours while she watched. So I was determined not to bring this potential student into the BSU college of education to become a teacher. (not that there is anything wrong with teachers- but I would just feel bad if I was so boring i changed her entire career goals). Anyhow- it turned out pretty decent.
I had a product shot I wasn’t able to get to in the studio so I told our photographer to bring his camera in on that day. So we spent a couple hours in the morning setting up lighting for the shoot and I let her style some of the photos and play around with that. Then I had her take what we shot and build an ad for it. That took her a good portion of the day- especially since she doesn’t really know the programs. Then when she was done, I showed her how to make a logo using her name and let her toy around with that.
Her mom said she’s still interested in attending BSU for their graphic design, and she siad she wasn’t bored and was even a bit more jazzed about it. SCORE. Ashlie win.
A student is coming in to job shadow me for the day tomorrow. It’s the daughter of a co-worker who wants to be a designer. I hope I don’t bore her so much she decided to become a nurse or something… I’m kind of nervous about it.
Needless to day, I won’t be on facebook, tumblr or google chat that much tomorrow. :)
And I surely don’t say it nearly enough. But I am one lucky lady. I just got back from a cruise vacation with my wonderful husband. It was our first one. We had a great time- but now know what we will do differently if we decide to go again (starting with having at least 2 pools on the ship and probably going during the winter so the weather is appreciated a bit more).
But we had a blast (aside from a crowded pool and sitting in an airplane on the runway for 3 hours. That was TERRIBLE). But we made the most of the situation and were glad to not be sitting by annoying people.
Next on the agenda is getting re-acclimated to our non-vacation lives.
The husband and I are hitting a jet plane Monday morning and a big ol’ cruise ship Monday afternoon. That’s right kids! WE ARE GOING ON A VACATION! This means: No iPhone and NO internet. I Can. Not. Wait! Just me and my TomTom in the middle of the ocean. Me with my SPF 15 and him with his SPF 60+ on a boat complete with a casino, waterslides and 9-hole mini golf. I’m going to do my best not to pull a Kramer and hit my golf ball into the blowhole of big whale.
I need a vacation so bad. It’s been so busy at work and I just need to get away.
(I know you’re not supposed to type on the internet about going on vacation because then people know to rob you… but robbers beware. We have an alarm system plus we are having work done on the house while we are gone so it will not be vacant… plus everyone around us is retired and watch houses like hawks. Good luck with that one).
Anyhow- I hope to get a nice tan and wear a cute hat. Those are my goals really. I’m easy :) Oh- and maybe tom and i can get a nice photo taken… because we NEVER have any of us on vacation. It’s sad really…how much we both hate photos.
(get it. Sea. We’re out….)
But other times- You just wonder what in the heck goes through people’s minds.
While working with a client the past month or so, I’ve gathered that they’re incredibly needy- and only want me working on their stuff and not any of my other tasks. I’ve more than got their project under control and am ahead of schedule for the time they want it from the printer.
After they picked up the habit of calling me on a daily basis just to check in (which I have no problem with. I actually like these people in an ‘your incredibly nuts but it’s funny’ kind of way…) I decided to let the project manager know that I would be taking a vacation toward the end of June but that it should not slow us down as they will have their final edits to go over at that time.
OH. MY. The conversation went like this:
“ohh… oh man. that is not good. He’s not going to like that… oh my. oh my. that’s not good…… ok. lets not tell him until we have to. Lets just see where we are… and lets not tell him just yet. I’ll ind a good time to let him know so he doesn’t totally freak out. Don’t stress out-“
“Um. I’m not stressing out. I’m fine”
“okay. well dont stress out..”
Fast forward two weeks later. Project is still moving along nicely. And we’re taking about my vacation (I guess I’m allowed to tell the main client on Friday that I am leaving for vacation) and she says to me -
“Well while you’re on vacation. Do you have the capabilities to do layouts and make changes?”
“No. Not a chance.”
Seriously people. I don’t get paid even close enough to open a file while on vacation. I should have said “That’ll cost you. I accept PayPal. Don’t tell my boss.”
I’m too embarrassed to admit this on my Facebook page so I will do it here because there are only like 15 people that read it….
But I am SO sad that Bravo’s “Bethany Ever After” AND “The Real Housewives of Orange County” are both over…now I don’t know what to watch.
