My first 3 weeks. In sticky notes

Romy and Michele at least knew that the post-it was a powerful thing. If I could claim I had invented it, I’d…not be writing this blog.  But, still. I would still be using them to remind myself to pick up bread. I’d still be a writer.

So far, I’ve seen some work that I envy. I’ve allowed my intellectual predilection for large words that end in –ism to chill out until at least 6:30pm. And not even every night. I’ve met some people here, at Lure and Drive New Media that I hope to get to know better. I’ve hung around cool, creative people who don’t care if the Puritans were suffering post-Reformation trauma (or at least don’t quiz me about it). I’ve learned to use the sticky note to my advantage. I’m learning things about advertising because I get to work so closely with everyone here.

Also, my first 3 weeks at Think Creative Inc. have been a time for me to break up the rhythm of my analytical thinking and to try to jot down more random ideas. One by one. Without any real sense of a cohesive story yet. And that’s OK because I’m new to this business.  I’m hoping the staccato effect of my thoughts will quicken and flow.

While the stomach virus wasn’t the “quicken and flow” I was so desperately hoping for, at least I capped off the first 2 weeks with a reduction in my waistline.

And the 3rd with a serious appetite.
