It’s Britney, Bitch!
Actually it’s not Britney – it’s me, Lucy.
I just wanted to get your attention with a catchy title.
Before you’re wondering – NO I haven’t had a public breakdown or been sectioned.
BUT I HAVE SHAVED MY HEAD. Bold, brash and bald. That’s me.
I’m so unfunny it hurts. Don’t worry I haven’t. I’m just nervous and showing off.
I really have no idea what to write…
Oh wait I know. Let’s talk about last month. Cos that was a bit of a rough one for me.
You see 31 days ago my dream job got taken away from me. I was one of those ambitious, slightly annoying agency folk whose curiosity got the better of me. Somehow after essentially working two jobs for 6 months and staying up at ridiculous hours of the night, I was granted a golden ticket into the creative department.
It felt like I was soaring, tumbling, freewheeling through an endless diamond sky. I had a job I frickin’ loved. But before I could even sing – “a whole new world”, I was pushed off the magic carpet of creativity, and fell tumbling to my death.
Well not quite. Thank god I was wearing extremely large harem pants, because of instead of falling – I sort of, well…glided. Floated my way back down to earth. Like Mary Poppins or in this case Princess Jasmin. Unscathed and unbruised but pretty pissed off.
But as Marc told me on the phone – with anger can come passion, determination, and drive – and boy did I have a lot of that.
You see resilience is a beautiful beautiful thing. Learning and growing from hard situations makes you a much stronger and all rounded type of person. When we get knocked down, we’re told to quickly dust ourselves off and immediately pick ourselves up.
However I say take your time. Have a good long hard think about your next steps and when you’re honestly ready – rise slowly. And when you do surface, come back with a big loud and bloody brilliant bang.
I’m back and I’m here.
I didn’t give up that easily did I? Cos I got into and am going to SCA.
Wooooooohoooo *awkward dancing*
Aaaaaaahhh that feels so good to write.
I’m staring at this big sparkling year ahead of me and I honestly can’t bloody wait.
I’m so ready and willing to learn everything I possibly can I’m literally beaming with joy just writing this. I can’t wait to meet the other students, settle in and meet all the mentors! It’s going to be a whole lotta fun, but more importantly hard and challenging. I want to relearn everything I currently know about creativity and advertising. I want to be reborn and reshaped into the best bloody creative I can possibly be.
I know this year is going to be full of twists and turns, ups and downs, bumps and bends. But as cliché as it sounds things do really happen for a reason. And I believe this past month has all happened for a reason.
I’m so excited to give it my absolute all. I’ve got my own gold ticket now. My very own magic carpet.
I may not be off the ground just yet but my eyes are 100% on the prize.
So watch this space people cos I’m gonna fly.
