My favorite boss ever is the scary angel uncle in The Nutcracker. You know, the one who is terrifying, completely, but for some reason Clara likes him and then you realize he’s a great Wizard bringing the Magic and the Fear of Mice into the world…? That guy? Yeah, he’s my boss.
He tells me to go make a facebook ad. A duplicate of one he ran six years ago. And then he shoves me and tells me not to bother him anymore.
I cry a lot, in anguish, when I don’t know what words mean. . . and i cry a lot here right now. CTR, CPM…. ROI… Technically, I know what they all mean, but I’ve had to look them up, all of them, and I am not clear on how they relate to me, or what i am trying to do.
and … it all hurts my heart….WHY? WHY, you say!
1. to admit that I don’t sell anything and if i have to peddle in this stuff, i might completely fail when I do find something to sell.
2. that i am 44 and i don’t know how to learn this stuff. I don’t know whether i need to go buy a book and a highlighter and just camp out til it makes sense…
or youtube videos? pay some kid to sit with me and teach me, simple steps? how to duplicate without making a million clones..? I mean, seriously, i don’t know if i can do this. and i might blow something ‘real’ up in the process….
and plus, you guys, WHY IS THE WORLD LIKE THIS?????
why are we tracking all this data? why are we so full of manipulation and money-grubbing?
….which is to say…. i have realized that my dream of being paid to just write for you, here, is a fairy tale. one of many, yes, that my golden shard wholeheartedly throws herself at daily.
she just ‘believes’ I can. without any data, or product to sell. just belief. faith.
it cuts me to the quick.
sitting back, waiting for a mudslide to close the road.
what to do about this? any of it? the golden shard, crystal?
oh my word, could i be Atreyu’s Empress?! Could I?
good god, its so good to realize my true calling. so damn good.
ah. faith. i’ve got so many questions for you.
