Energy Drink Project featured on SlideShare!

I'm not really sure what it means to be featured on SlideShare, but I have been! (Still investigating as to whether it's a good or a bad thing that 342 people have seen the thing and 16 people have actually downloaded it) It's for a project I've been working on for an internship assignment at an ad agency here in St. Louis. My, my, my, the job market. Don't get me started!

So yeah, I still maintain that I am not a big deal, but I will just take it that I did a good job/people like it. I'm pretty proud of it, actually.

Sidenote: there was a discussion on the twitter led more or less by MissRogue (whose new site looks so great! and who I greatly admire.), about how women often struggle with self-promotion. I will admit, this felt a little awkward. This on top of a meeting I just had with an old high school pal where she reccomended to me the book, "Women Don't Ask". Is this making mountains out of molehills? I don't know about that - I'm slightly on the well-versed side of things as far as feminist theory goes, and I'd say probably not. Maybe I'm just hesitant to put my work out there for all to judge. Who isn't? Who knows! I'm looking to get hired in St. Louis, so I can stay in this town I love. No shame in that!

Speaking of the devil, I've gotta get to work on my resume.

I have heard of this "women don't ask" book, and I really have seen this theory play out in the workplace. I don't know the scale of it, really. But it seems legit to me. So ... I ask. I told the folks at the new job that I wouldn't come unless they agreed to give me a week off (before I technically earn vacation) to go to Thailand. What were they going to say? No? Of course they said yes.

As far as scale goes, I think it collectively adds up to big-time millions of dollars a year. Crazy dude.
