I have always known that I am a writer. I let others persuade me that I am not good enough to be a writer, my spelling is...bad, and I have never understood grammar, but now I am here to prove that I can be anything and everything.
Creative Copywriting in a Sea of Tech
Have you ever stepped into a boat and sailed out into the sea? The experience can be both exhilarating and terrifying. There are so many beautiful sights to see, but also many unknowns. What if you get lost or capsize? Can you really survive in these unknown waters? Stepping into the FinTech industry, a newly minted copywriter, was like paddling out to sea in a rowboat held together with duct tape.
In middle school one of my favorite musicals was "Chicago" with music from John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb, and book by Ebb and Bob Fosse. One song that particularly caught my attention was "Mr. Cellophane." It was the only song that talked about real feelings and part of me could relate to that feeling of invisibility. It wasn't until recently that I understood the falsity and deceit of this song as well.
The Life of an Introvert
Has anyone ever asked you to change for them? Maybe someone who told you to lose weight. Maybe someone who told you, you would look prettier in certain clothes or with makeup on or if you smiled more. Has anyone ever asked you to get cosmetic surgery? When they asked, how did you feel? Did you change? Did changing make you happier?
Life Changing Moments
Memory is a fickle thing. There are so many life changing moments that I cannot remember. The first time I laughed, the first time I cried or was angry, the time I took my first steps, the first time I read a book, or the first time I ate chocolate cake. There are so many moments that I have forgotten even though they changed my life.
