Thanks for coming to Pico Day! It really is cool how people from NG just instantly feel like childhood friends when you meet them. I even have this thing where I consider people friends when I've never actually TALKED to them, I've just observed them / featured their stuff over the years without realizing we never interacted 1:1. I just hope they feel the love too :)
Sorry to hear about the job but hopefully it will be the opening of a door to something cooler! Outside of the lease obligations, how do you like living in Dallas?
I'm actually really enjoying myself here in Dallas. I grew up in a really small town and living in a big city has always been a pleasant idea to me. There are tons of things to do and see here, I'm still trying to figure out where everything is!!!
Was good seeing you there! Sorry you came home to bad news, you weren't the only one... I came home to find my front door open, and half my cat's ear missing! Don't be afraid to walk around with your portfolio and ask for management wherever you go - even doing menu chalkboards, simple graphics and little pick-up jobs can get you noticed for bigger things.
Glad to hear you had a really great time out in Philly - same here! It was so awesome to finally meet you, and I'm sorry we didn't get more 1 on 1 time!
Sorry to hear about the job situation, too. You seem excited and optimistic about the possibilities for the future though...! I know you'll do great given the opportunity to try new things - it'll be nothing but positive in the end if you can overcome this hardship. If things get hairy, you've always got friends here (myself included) that can lend a hand!
Glad you enjoyed Pico Day! We met briefly but it was good to say hi all the same.
Sorry about the bad news. You might be able to talk to your landlord or leasing office about breaking your lease early if you've lost your job - Some leases have a clause where you can get out early in that situation! Moving early might suck but it sure beats getting evicted!
I live in Fort Worth and work in Dallas for a hotel. If times get tough you should drop me a line - I work with a couple of temp agencies that are always looking for guys for banquet housmen/banquet server, or guide you through applying for any open jobs in my company. Hotels are always looking for people and the benefits aren't too shabby (discounts on travel, paid time off, health insurance, dental).
Best of luck on finding a creative job!
Was great finally meeting you, bro <3 You're even cooler and nicer IRL.
Sorry to hear about your job D: Come live on my floor
Saw your comment on @Sequenced's profile about your job. Just wanted to send some sympathy/empathy your way. Hope it wall works out!
Hey man, thanks a lot for reaching out! It's the little things like this that help us get through tough times. If it makes you feel any better, I was able to get in contact with a recruiter in hopes of starting some work in the next few weeks. I have a feeling I'll be just fine :)
I love you Erfan
