The 1 day of the year when JC and I cancel all our plans because we're ready to hunt and be total fan girls. Haha. It's also the time of the year where our designer brains make good points and we dream of how we can make things better for these guys. Advertising wise. Haha. It's all for fun and we're good with that.
We don't really join all the special events if we're not 100% passionate about the topic or speaker, and that's because we're not willing to spend a cent just to see someone famous. We're happy to roam around appreciating all the cosplayers and admiring all the fan art done by the concept artists. This year was good. I can't wait for next year!
We didn't stay for the entire Day 2 because there's really only so much you can do, but we did have fun at the Netflix booth. We particularly enjoyed all the good looking men walking around and talking to us... Hahaha - even if it's their job to do that... Hahahaha. We tried to take sneaky photos of them!
I didn't have a whole bunch of funds for this year, so I had to choose wisely. Haha. But i did find interesting stickers and prints that I reaally wanted! They were all at affordable prices and to be honest, I would have paid a bit more for them because I understand the passion and hard work that goes into creating these works. Respect to them and I really hope their artworks get noticed more! I particularly love love love the ones I purchased because of the style! They're clean and beautifully done! Good job, guys!
Today, I finally colored my hair all red! Haha. I can't wait for it to fade a little bit so it's not so strong, but yah! I did it! Woot!!!! <3
I admit, there's another side into the story. I've been working on a few things and yah, it's slow but I'm happy there's progress. Also, I've realized a couple of things and I'm starting to accept it. Well... I'm grasping my life in totality and I need to stop fighting the truth. It's more peaceful that way.
So, I did something I've been wanting to do and I feel more confident. I like that. It's something I miss feeling! Yay! Here's to good times! Can't wait for more!
Kyle (my Creative Director + boss) took Ron and I out for lunch at Elbert. It's this really fancy steak house and I felt super under dressed.... Hahaha. Anyways, it was a good lunch. Kyle asked Ron and I how we were and all. We opened up about some concerns, but nothing we can't change. Other than the delicious meal, the conversations were good and hopeful. After lunch, it was time for the 1-on-1s and this was when I opened up to Kyle about my status at Gobo. I've only been with his company for roughly 5 months, so there are still so much to learn (especially the culture of the company), however, I am proud to say that I'm adapting quite well. I've hit a few bumps here and there, but I knew I had to fix those or my experience with Gobo will be awful - that's something I really do not want.
Okay, so the evaluation was good and fair. I felt the concern and care on my bosses end. I felt safe to speak up and really voice out my concerns. I felt appreciated and respected. When he brought up the things I needed to work on, he did it in a way that was very respectful and professional. It was very easy to understand where we was coming from and I like that because I did feel like I can bring up some issues with him. He expounded on things and I also appreciated that. It gave me a better understanding on how to approach things without coming out like a know it all or snob. So, in short, I appreciate my boss for being kind.
This 1-on-1 made me see what kind of company I'm part of and I like it. No, I LOVE IT. I'm proud of how they built this company despite the short-comings Kyle stated. Over-all, the experience is good and I hope I can be better and offer more help.
The past weeks have been a little tough for me, so I'm glad this conversation happened. It arrived at the right time. I hope I can improve and find my place in the company.
Another memorable shoot with my workmates + production house! This was the first time I was actually active during a shoot so, it was exciting for me. Haha. I was able to place my input and help direct the sets. I'm proud of myself. Haha. I particularly enjoyed the company, actually. I didn't feel bored or useless! Hohoho! Congratulations to us, my friends! We did an awesome job!
