Advice from above.

In days past lessons were handed from on high mountains or booming voices. Tonight they were handed from the people above. Of one year.

This day we were sponsored by the 2nd year students, more of an alcohol fueled frenzy than anything, but a tradition none the less. However afterwards I was lucky enough to be dragged along to their after party and second after party and got enough information to last a long time so I thought I would boil it down, simply:

1. The people you view to be "the best" most likely will not survive, for reasons only known to them.

2. The quicker you acknowledge you know nothing about advertising the better off you will be.

3. Teachers are the end of the line, but we are the answer. We have experience that they can never have as younger people.

4. Enjoy your time while it is here.

5. This is NOT a definite answer to a job, no matter the advertising about it. Learn to work well in as many aspects of the business as you can, learn to be a multi-talented employee, learn to kiss ass when necessary, and finally learn to be yourself and be willing to fight for it, and then, only then, will you be above everyone else, just barely.

59 weeks to go.
