As my senior year of college is coming to end (how that is happening already, I have no idea), I reflect on all the things I learned this past year. So, I thought I’d share (lucky you!).

  1. Always send a thank you note. I know, sounds simple, right? Send one. Trust me, you’ll stand out.
  2. If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. Cliché, I know. But it’s true. If your first idea isn’t well received use that as motivation until you get it right. Or until you inspire someone else to get it right.
  3. That brings me nicely to my next point…bounce ideas off each other. When you’re stuck or need a change of pace, use the people around you. You never know what you’ll be able to come up with.
  4. Have fun. If you’re not enjoying what you’re doing, it’s going to show. Obviously, not every day is going to be perfect. But work hard. Have fun. And it’ll make the not-so-perfect days worth it.
  5. The best way to hold a broom: one hand firmly at the top and the second hand partly down the handle. Move hands back and forth, sweeping all around the office. Listen to music – it’ll help.
  6. Learn from your mistakes. Cliché number two! But, it’s true. Listen to what the people around you have to say (especially when you’ve made a mistake). Use that to become better.
  7. Keep up with social media. Look for new ways to do old tricks. Always be up to speed with what’s going on in the (advertising) world around you.
  8. If you believe in your idea, fight for it. Because if you don’t, no one else will.
  9. Best way to do dishes: grab bucket full of dishes, go down the hall to the bathroom, scrub, scrub, scrub, dry, put back in bucket and bring back to put in office. Again, listen to music it helps.
  10. Beer and homemade cookies always equal a good going-away gift.

Well, I’m sure I’ve learned more than just that…probably. But, that’s all I’ll share with you. Hope you guys have a great weekend.

As always thanks for reading,

Sharon
