Misfit

I am a misfit. In my home town and in my family I am certainly out of tune, but also in my circle of friends in my chosen city. I am a little off kilter everywhere. Misfits have a place in society and apparently many of them seek the wonderful world of advertising. So here I reside, trying my best to make a career in a world dominated by other misfits. My good friend Jen who is an advertising copywriter told me that it is the only straight job freaks like us can do. I hope she is right, and that I can do it. Because if I strike out at Misfit Academy I might have to become a dentist.

My friend Donnie is off at graduate school for advertising also and being that he and I worked at the comic book store together, that's a pretty good case to your point. I work in customer service, but that's just a job not a career so that makes no point whatsoever. I like to imagine I'm a misfit, but I'm more likely just delusional.

You don't want to be a dentist, baby. You're not a magical elf.
