They chose MY proposal!!! HOLY CRAP!

Photobucket

I submitted an idea for a proposal for the introduction of ROXY Athletix to fashion magazines around the US and they CHOSE MINE!  I can't believe it... The basic layout is like the one above (I did this one on photobucket:the poor man's photoshop, the  Quiksilver visual team will do the real one).  I wrote the "hook"  and for those that REALLY know me... shhhhhh don't tell anyone that I barely remember what it is like to actually run! Ha ha...

I will show you the REAL DEAL when it is finished and I get a copy.  

I also made my first "uh oh" mistake today.  I was redirected on how to do things and at first I was a little upset: upset for making the mistake, embarrassed for making the mistake and mad at myself for making such a stupid mistake.  I then stopped and took a deep breath.  I told myself that I have only been here for a week and sometimes you learn the most by making mistakes.  Because believe me, I won't do it again. (By the way the mistake I made was that I forgot to put the subject heading in an email.  It may not seem that big, but to a director who gets 100's of emails a day, it is a time waster).

I am human.  I make mistakes.  I will make a lot more in my life.  But I also have triumphs in my life and  I will count those as I fall asleep tonight...
