People create stories create people, or rather stories create people create stories.
Yesterday, I pulled up to a 4 way stop (4 stops signs placed at the intersection of two streets). I see a tiny elderly couple with stooped postures standing to the right of me at the pedestrian crossing. The man was dressed in a fresh baby blue polo, neatly pressed knee length khaki shorts and all white sneakers. He was bald and his head was almost completely covered in giant age spots. He was holding the hand of a woman with a matching outfit and full head of short white hair. I don’t know if they were actually 90 years old but they really looked like they were.
“Hello?” I tuck my phone underneath my ear.
“Ivy? Hi, it’s Ibk.” He paused. “You sent me a text about video editing and branding.”
“Oh, hi!” I squeal and I stop to clear my throat hoping I do not sound desperate.
“SoIneedsomehelpwithvideoeditingandpersonalbranding,” I mumbled.
“Dear I didn’t hear you,” Ibk answered.
I take a deep breath and repeat, “So I need some help with video editing and personal branding.”
“Oh, okay, I will help you,” Ibk replied.
“One of life’s challenging realizations is that sometimes you outgrow your friends.”
The day I decided to outsource…
I took off my glasses and groaned as I rubbed my bleary eyes. I tentatively stretched my aching back and then glanced at the clock by my bedside table, it read… 4am! I jumped up out of my chair and decided to take a power-nap until 6am which was when I had to wake up to go to my full-time job.
I was hunched over my computer since 6:30 pm the day before editing ONE audio interview and it still wasn’t close to perfect. What is going on? I need to outsource this ASAP.
