The first day at W+K

I have to say the first official day of my career went pretty dern well. The space is really nice, quite open and light for being an old converted ice warehouse. (They also love giant doors. And giant animals too actually.)

By 1:00 Karen and I were being briefed on our big project. Sadly I can't really disclose any details, but we're both really stoked on it. It's a huge opportunity.

The whole thing is really pretty incredible. I'm trying not to think about it. We're just attacking everything like it's an assignment from teams class. And we're not thinking about being in world-famous Wieden+Kennedy. We're just thinking about doing some awesome work for a cool client.

The city of Portland is pretty cool in its own right. Super-clean, really quiet, way walkable. It's a lot smaller than I imagined actually, but that's not a bad thing. It's got a really unique vibe. It's like New York where everyone is just doing their own thing. Except everyone is white. So it's basically just a bunch of crazy white people.

Also, there are at least four Starbucks within a four block radius of our hotel. It's pretty ridiculous.

Speaking of ridiculous, this whole thing is pretty ridiculous. And pretty awesome.

Gotta get up early to go buy an iPhone (sixth attempt, no joke) and then go in and sell some Starbucks. Things are reallll good.
