I can be a total dope sometimes

I finally gave my presentation today in class talking about the area of graphic design we want to be in for the next three years.  I totally didn't do my PDF the right way.  I'm so used to doing it a different way that I forgot that way doesn't work for presenting! LOL  Class went on a 5 minute break while I recreated the PDF that would work.  I felt like such a dope and our professor kept saying, "Don't worry"  "It's happens"  "It's okay".  After I gave my presentation our professor said I did a great job, so that made me feel a bit better.  I honestly think I did a horrible job though.  And imagine if that was a client meeting... I would be in deep shit with my non-working PDF.  Time is money!  Ugh, I'm such a dumbass!

About the presentation.. I chose advertising and and branding as my area.  Ideally, I want to be doing motion graphics for news programs, but that's not realistic right now as I have no experience in motion graphics.  But I have tons of advertising work and I think I'm damn good at it.  I've come to LOVE advertising.  Learning how advertising works and how to make it work has been fascinating working on my advertising minor.  And I realized the only reason I used to hate advertising was because so much out there just blows.  We're all constantly bombarded by lousy advertising.  I want to be a part of making advertising more admirable and effective at the same time.  There are a lot of advertising agencies doing that out there, so I'll be applying to them.

OMG, I'm watching Glen Beck and he is choking up and crying over a story about a family suffering the loss of their daughter who went to Mexico and disappeared.  Wow, that was genuine emotion right there.  Gah, I nearly lost it with him :'(
