doin it fo tha scrilla

oh yes, today, not two short weeks after the week-o-change commenced, i am headed back to work. and everyone keeps asking if i'm excited.
the answer is...
um, no.
it's not a new job. it's the same job. it's not more responsibility, it's the same. at least for now. sure, it's a salary position and not hourly, but i'll be taking a small pay cut when i switch to salary. it will be nice to not feel AS disposable. although, after a year and half of interning/freelancing/contracting i've come to learn that the advertising industry is not your friend. and regardless of how "in" you feel, you may get canned the next morning by a smiling face talking about how much they like you. and this is true for freelancers, contract work, interning, and salary positions. so i guess my job security comment above is now null and void.
of course, i am very excited to see my work peeps again. i do enjoy them tremendously.
who knows, maybe you'll see more posts now that i'm required to sit in front of a computer all day and brilliantly craft the perfect, most affective headlines and body copy the world of JWT has ever known!

time for Montastic to get her life back on track.

You have a life? Whoa.

Seriously though, what you said applies to any industry in this day and age, not just advertising. Though advertising is particularly cutthroat and volatile, indeed.

Congrats again on the new same ol'.
