I’ve had three of my most tiring yet most fulfilling three days of work, prepping and following after James Jean’s activities. Meeting new people, watching his excited fans, being on my feet, squeezing in time to snap as any photos as possible, tweeting for the company’s account, running around for logistical arrangements… I can’t believe I was able to even sneak into his talks and take notes!
So many thoughts to collect from what he said… One of my favorites was when he said that the point in one’s career (whether in art or not) is not to have an end goal. The point is having something you believe in, something to do everyday, and letting that lead you somewhere you realize is in fact a good place to be. I suppose these are also some words of comfort for me, the little 25-year-old in a quarter life crisis.
Until now, I’m still on a high from how much respect I have for him. And I hope I never get over it. :-)
