This industry will push you to work in an area you don’t have interest in. This industry will test your patience intentionally. It will force you to wake up at dawn repeatedly. It will make the intolerant quit without thought, and the tolerant think twice before quitting. This industry is anything but smooth sailing at first, or ever. It’s oscillating and unfathomable. It’s making you brace for impact.
p.s. My boss and I talked today about what stepping foot in a media industry is like, and this conversation boiled down to one thing–it is work. It’s work now, and I am not even there yet. It’s oscillating and unfathomable, too. Despite those aspects, it’s still what I want to do. It’s been that way for a long time. Here’s to giving myself a reality check and bracing for impact!
