The absolute need to network in my field is vital. As an artist, I prefer to work with film crews and teams but when you have to start with a blank slate and no connections, networking gets truly annoying. I am trying so hard to be positive but GOOD GRIEF… I can't help but laugh at the half-bum emails I get from people weeks later or no response at all. Its really a task to positively connect with people when you are face to face.
BUT… I am really really really optimistic that good is coming my way. All my hard work trying to navigate emails and make new connections will pay off. I am determined to persist at my goals. Life is Good. I am a well paid video editor and I am ready for a new adventure. So be it. A bright new job is on the way. So I'm keeping my head up and pushing forward.
