For someone who loves the media, I’ve continued to dive deeper into:

 – the vast array of online media buys
– drafting proposals
– making media recommendations
– compiling report data ( I see ya’ll clicking!)

I also gave a Brokaw presentation this week where I boldly shared this picture of myself circa 97′ :

Glory Days: for all the world to see

My intern duties reflect a lot on this picture from 1997, as I’ve realized just how far we’ve come in this di-gi-tal world.

There are many things I  thankfully experienced growing up that my children may never know about, including:

– The scream of a modem connecting
– Blowing the dust out of a NES cartridge and hoping it will load
– Having physical prints of photographs come back to you ( and not via Instagram)
– Floppy discs
– Getting lost (hello, beloved GPS!)
– Pay phones
– Remembering someone’s phone number by heart ( I still have a select few committed to memory )
– 3-D movies meaning red-and-green glasses
– Going to Blockbuster to rent a movie (Netflix anyone?)
– Inserting a VHS tape into a VCR to watch a movie or to record something
– When Spam was just a meat product — or even this awesome Monty Python sketch

BONUS QUESTION:

What is your spirit animal?

Without hesitation – my spirit animal is a cat.

I like listening to birds, I’m really good at taking naps, and I like being petted and held.

Also, tether-ball was my favorite game to play; we all know that’s the ultimate human-cat toy to ever exist.
