Arrow Career advice, being in your early twenties - January 12th 2011, 05:59 AM

I've learned a lot of invaluable things recently and I thought I'd post them.

1) Early twenties angst lasts long into your late twenties, this angst is different than teenage angst. It's more constructing your own world. That said, it feels like crawling in the dark.
2) Having contacts. I'm within the film industry, but think it applies everywhere. Think of contacts as the laser scene in Iron Man 2. Tony could only use his bad ass laser once that took out all those robots around him. Think of contacts the same way. The only time you should go or utilize them is when you are 110% ready for your death-finishing K.O. move. An exec gave me this wise word of advice.
3) Agism, even hollywood doesn't revolve around youth. The said exec was promoted when he was 23 years old, he's 25 now and still makes himself keep quiet unless he has something VERY important to say.
4) The image you provide of yourself is how you choose to construct it. Your contacts are the ones who you use as rarely as you would a power move in a video game. Sparingly and with intent purpose to finish ahead because you know it'll work.

I'll fill this in as I go, but thought this would help a lot.

"Maybe I just like people. Maybe sexuality isn't one thing or the other. Maybe it's just something that's shifting and moving. I just know I'm not thinking man or woman."
