Definition of an advertising creative: Someone who got lots of validation from parents for being clever and talented in school, and needed a career that allowed them to continue building their self worth through external validation only to realize that bosses (the new parents) seldom praise you so you look to greater validation through awards until you either get said awards and realize that it only leads to wanting more, or you get old enough to see through it all and are laid off.
