October 25, 2006 Start my first official job on Madison Avenue
October 27, 2006 The love of my life proposes to me
May 1, 2007 Our lease begins to our first home
May 12, 2007 I married my best friend
August 6, 2007 Brett receives and accepts a full-time position on Wall Street
October 24, 2007 I accept a job offer at a different agency
I put in my two weeks notice today at my current agency and will start at a new, thriving agency on November 13th. It's all very surreal. It feels a lot like transfers did in Argentina. You fall in love with the people and then just when things are comfortable, you find out you're leaving. You have mixed feelings, so sad to say goodbye and yet excited for what's to come (and the fact that you can start fresh). The moment you know you're leaving, you begin to see everything through different eyes. And that's how the past day or two have been. The agency looks a whole lot different when you know that in two weeks, life as you know it will change. One things for sure, I will miss the incredible friends I've made at Y&R and cherish all that I've learned. I look forward to the wonderful people I'll meet and the new beginning.

Addendum: So, right after I posted, I ran off to a photoshoot. I walked down into the subway and as I did so, I looked down to fix my shirt. To my utter disgust I find a little present from a feathered friend. That's right, a bird pooped on me! I mean really, what bird thinks he has the right to use my shirt as his bathroom! Come on! I immediately pulled the tissues from my bag to remove the mess. Unfortunately it left quite a nasty colored stain. No worries though...Tide-to-go to the rescue! There I was on the subway platform Tide-to-going it away. The whole platform was looking at me like I was one of the street musicians trying to earn money. I should've put a hat out in front of me or something. They say it's good luck to have a bird poop on you...maybe I would have earned a pretty penny!

Here I go, trying one more time. I tried to post this video a few days ago. I think it's brilliant, just like it's campaign. Talk about finding an insight and running with it. Way to go Ogilvy (from my experience working there, I know this is their pride and joy) and way to go Dove for taking a stand for such an important problem in our society. I know they are reaping the rewards in their sales, but I also hope that it's helping us change our perceptions one ad at a time.
