Zach Wahls Stands Up For Gay Marriage

Posted in Uncategorized, Video by Megan Do on February 4, 2011

This video has been circulating around the internet this past week but I felt that it was my duty to share it. I was extremely moved by it and I’ve watched it repeatedly,  five or six times.

This is Zach Wahls. This kid is 19. He’s 19 and he’s speaking in front of the Iowa House of Representatives, standing up for gay marriage.

My hope is that I will see gay marriage in my lifetime. And it makes me so incredibly happy and proud that young people like Zach are helping to make huge strides to this much needed equality.

2010

Posted in Advertising, Friends, Life, Personal, Ramblings, School, Social Media, Uncategorized by Megan Do on December 30, 2010

Every year, I like to look back and remember the memorable things I did that year. 2010 was definitely one of the most memorable years I’ve had. I did a lot of cool things, grew up a lot and met some great people.  With graduation and new job opportunities, I’m excited to see what 2011 brings.

1. Internship in Atlanta

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After obsessively applying and interviewing for 20+ internships, I found myself at BBDO Atlanta in Atlanta, Georgia and it honestly was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. I learned so much as in account management intern and got to work with the coolest group of interns ever (DTPATT!). Going to work was never an issue because I had a blast every single day. And after spending three months in Atlanta, I fell head over heels in love with the city–the culture, style, history, everything.

2. Chicago


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Living on my own for three months in a big city and returning to Kansas was difficult so the second I was back, I started planning a Labor Day weekend trip to Chicago with a few close friends. I’d never been before and needed to be back in that big city environment. It was a short and sweet weekend full of adventure, laughs, sightseeing and delicious food.

3. 1,000 followers on Twitter


 

 

 

Before you judge me, I take my social media presence very seriously. Why use social media when what you’re saying doesn’t make a difference and isn’t being heard? After a conversation with a mentor, I realized that I needed to grow up and start using Twitter correctly. That meant more retweeting, sharing links, following interesting people and tweeting about more relevant things. I guess what I’m tweeting is interesting because I’m at 1,000+ followers. 1,000+ followers. Seriously unreal.

4. Campaigns


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Since my first year at KU, I heard about the capstone advertising class called Strategic Campaigns, where a team of students is given a budget to create a marketing campaign for a real-life client. And since my first semester of junior year, I’d been dreaming of putting together the perfect team. This past semester, I enrolled in the class, helped put together the Dream Team and kicked some major ass by winning the account. It was seriously one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve had. I loved my team, I loved our ideas and I honestly miss spending every waking hour with them. Mark my words, in 10-15 years when we’re all tired of our jobs, we’re starting an agency.

5. Turned 21


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For a year, when I logged into my iGoogle homepage, I would see a countdown to my 21st birthday. The night finally came one of my last nights in Atlanta and my aunt and uncle dragged me to a dark, Irish pub to celebrate with  pints of Strongbow and Guinness and a shot called the Lindsey Lohan. Turning 21 was a blast and I have to say that my social life has improved massive amounts since. I’m trying to enjoy every second of it before 22 hits.

OMFG! Kanye West + Bon Iver is really happening!

IT’S TRUE! Justin Vernon of Bon Iver definitely collaborated with Kanye West and Pitchfork has more info.

I can’t wait to hear this collaboration. Anything Justin Vernon does is pure genius.
