My department at work had a Creative Job Ad Writing Competition. The winner got $250 and a paid day off. I REALLY wanted to win. I worked SO hard on writing come clever ads. And then, you know when you get that feeling when you hear someone else talking about theirs and then you start to doubt yourself and wonder why you thought yours was so good? That is what happened. I overheard my co-worker reading his to someone and I thought for sure he would win. Well, the winners were announced yesterday…and drumroll please…The bad news is I didn’t get first place and the co-worker who I for sure thought had won, got 3rd. The submissions were all so good that my boss decided to award 2nd and 3rd place prizes. I took 2nd place with my “We need a Bug Catcher” ad and walked away with $50. Not too bad. Especially since I will be in my favorite store, H&M in San Francisco this Saturday. Yahoo!
