I love my job. Is it perfect? Of course not. But I constantly remind myself that we come up with funny TV commercials for a living. Sure, there’s the dirty work, the painful work. But you write something on paper and possibly millions of people smirk at it? Holy hell, that’s amazing. And aside from painful clients, the majority of our job is to sit around and talk to people we (hopefully) like for 10+ hours a day. Yes, getting ideas killed sucks. Clients can suck. But go shadow one of your lawyer or accountant friends for a day, then you’ll realize how lucky you are for having a job like this. Also....how lucky you are for having a job in general. You’re not unemployed. You’re not making minimum wage. And your job is to be clever. It’s fucking unbelievable.

Same. Love it!

I love my agency. Been to several and finally found one I’m happy at. CD always checks in with me and asks me how I’m doing. My team is laid back and jokes with one another. Everyone gets in at 10am and for the most part, people leave at 5. If ever there’s a long night, the whole team chimes in to make sure the work gets done, they don’t like just having one person ‘stuck’ with work. Honestly, everyone in the agency is very nice, always smiling and accommodating, even if you don’t know them or they aren’t on your team. We also have summer Friday’s, have fruit every Wednesday, and bagels once a month. There’s free drinks and a cheap vending machine. Good eateries everywhere. The work and creative atmosphere is great too!! The positivity in the place definitely helps!

I had a job interview this week for a corporate strategist position. It was a solid reminder how much I love my job! Being on this ugly corporate campus, meeting with pretentious and dull people, and being forced to change out of my jeans and flip-flops for the interview was a solid reminder of the joys of agency life. I have an awesome team that laughs together and respects each other. My office is full of cool collaborative meeting spaces, free snacks and drinks, a HR director that treats us like family, and plenty of agency outings and happy hours. It’s good to be on the agency side of marketing!

I love my agency - we have leaders who take the time to listen to and respect the ideas of everyone from assistants on up. They recognize and reward hard work and are willing to let people take chances. They’re super accommodating and always provide thoughtful feedback rather than dismissing something without an explanation.

This may sound bizarre but in a pinch. I have been jumping through hoops trying to get imaging for a new lump in my chest.

Anyone else tire of the “plant mom” and “dog dad” me too conversation? It seems to be more frequent.

Undoubtedly someone responds, “what about my plant babies? 🤣”. I don’t want sympathy but I find it childish. Just give us the courtesy of understanding that plants and pets are not the same. Stop “me too’ing”
