“After this I go to work at a pizza shop. My wife and I were college professors in Bangladesh. I taught accounting. But one dollar in America becomes eighty dollars when we send it back home.”
People forget, when immigrants come to this country they start from scratch. They could have been lawyers in their home country, but in the US..it means nothing. You think a HS diploma from Bangladesh means anything in this country? My mom was a top student in the country, went to all the best school and got the best of everything…but when she got here it meant squat and she was cleaning other people’s homes and scrubbing their toilets. This is why I get pissed of when people talk smack about immigrants. They at least are doing something…..heading for a goal..making sacrifices…what are you doing with your life?
^ My parents were college-educated teachers in their home country and came to the U.S. with nothing but empty pockets, a dash of hope, and a belief in God. They also scrubbed toilets in people’s homes to make enough to provide for their children, and that’s probably not something a lot of educated professionals would be able to do. I know I wouldn’t be able to do it. Pride would get in the way.

Aladdin is a jerk.
Had an interview today about a copywriting position. I tentatively start on Thursday, pending on how they like my work samples I sent through tonight. Sent them a Facebook Page I administer, a couple of PRIMO! articles and a short piece I wrote here a few months back. It’s only one day per week while I finish my contract at my current workplace and complete AWARD school, but it’s my first “in” to the advertising world and I am stressing hardcore.

I spent today designing Japanese food-inspired, love-confessing greeting cards. I’m designing their packaging tomorrow and hopefully I’ll get them packed, printed and up in my store next week.
