If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere.

That’s what they say about New York City, right?

In all honesty, I think it’s true. Everyone in this city is moving a thousand miles an hour. They’re all hungry for opportunity, and they’re willing and able to steamroll over anyone who gets in the way, like a truck laying down concrete over a patch of ever-growing potholes. Theres no bus that people won’t throw you under; everyone here fights tooth and nail just for a chance to scrape the bottom rung of the corporate ladder.

So, yeah—if you can endure this seedy swarm of corporate-America liars and backstabbers, and still somehow stand out enough to succeed, you’ll probably be fine elsewhere.

But what if you can’t succeed here? What if you don’t have what it takes? What if the idea of climbing over hungry (literal and metaphorical) potentials just to put yourself higher doesn’t appeal to you? Suddenly, the thought of trying to make it big in an ocean of talent and sheer willpower becomes more intimidating. Suddenly, being a big fish in some small pond somewhere else sounds much more desirable.

I’ve been giving it a lot of thought, and I’ve come to the conclusion that yes, I would be able to move elsewhere. I can probably make a decent living for myself, too. But after living and breathing New York City for so long, would that be enough?

What is the Accounting side of advertising like? Is it as fun as creative side? Do they sometimes offer ideas?

thisadvertisinglife:

Are you talking about account side or literally accounting?

Account side works side by side with creative a lot and I get along with my account folks so we have a good time. They sometimes offer ideas, yes. They have to talk to the client all the time, though, so patience is a virtue in that department.

Accounting has to do with numbers or sumthin, idk.

THIS REALLY NEEDED TO BE SAID. It is excruciatingly painful to explain the difference between account management and accounting.

The sun has now set, on the [un]official last day of summer :( (at Coney Island Boardwalk)
