Newman

Ask me anything   Illinois/Minnesota. Restless, fun, spacey.

Now that I work for the government, this video resonates with me so much.

TIM.WHEN DID I DO THIS?WHEN.TELL ME TIM.

Sorry for totally creeping on your blog, but I think this is from freshman year, when we had to make flats and our prof had us sketch what we were going to paint on them first. And you and I were talking about how funny it would be to have an elephant with amnesia because of that whole, “An elephant never forgets thing.” I have a weirdly vivid memory of this.

"I had a child when I was sixteen. I got kicked out of high school because of all the absences. My family and community pretty much wrote me off. But right away I got a job at a sporting goods store. Soon I was able to get a job as a receptionist at a tax company, and they gave me enough responsibilities that I learned how to do taxes. Eventually I learned enough to become an associate. Then I got offered a job at a smaller company, and even though it was a pay cut, they offered me responsibility over all the books— accounts payable, accounts receivable, everything. It was less money but I wanted that experience so I took the risk. And I’m so glad I did, because six months later, the controller of that company left and I was given that position. They told me they couldn’t officially call me the controller because I didn’t have a college degree. So I finished my degree 5 months ago— just to make it official! So after having a child at sixteen, I made it all the way to controller of a company, without even having a college degree. Can you believe that? Honestly, I’ve been waiting to tell that story so long that I told it to a customer service representative on the phone last week. She was nice about it and pretended to care."

That day she was amazed to discover that when he was saying “as you wish,” what he meant was “I love you.” And even more amazing was the day she realized she truly loved him back.
