So me, Gabe and Emily are talking and obviously I'm interested in how a guy my age - he's eighteen years old - has his own company (he gave me his goddamn business card. WHO - WHAT - HOW?) He's the 'chief executive officer' of Imaginater, a creative technologies solution company that he runs. Ugh, it was like an amusement park of questions had been unleashed inside me and I asked so many questions, and then somehow we got onto the topic of my photography and I showed him my (photo)blog - and he wanted to hire my services!!! Okay that makes me sound like a prostitute wtf. But yeah HAHAHA I'm just really pleased that anyone, let alone my business-running eighteen year old classmate could think that I have "what his clients are looking for" (and also he's not entirely satisfied with his current photographer). And I thought, why waste an opportunity!? I was thinking about taking my photography a bit more professionally anyway, but that was a few months ago and it sort of faded to the background after a while. And now.. I really see how having passions and interests can really lengthen your resume. Just the potential, the possibility of my future makes me happy and quite hopeful. ^_^
This is Gabe's website, and an example of a website (A J Rodgers Upholstery) he designed hehehe :)) (He said himself he's quite conservative with his portfolio, which I totally respect!) Click it, SO PROFESSIONAL OR!? And he actually charges quite cheap compared to his competitors, but expensive enough so that his clients can recognise he's a professional. This is what I don't have the confidence to do - to start something, to be responsible for something bigger than myself. But he told me he was exactly where I was two, three years ago, which is a little more comforting.
Much love! xo
P.S. Blogging from Uni HAHAHA fuck yeah no shitty filters like high school wtf
P.P.S. The other reason why I'm so cheerful is because I managed to scrape a HD for the essay I was undergoing mental hell for. Jessica is happy today n_____n
