I’m back from a lovely vacation visiting the ‘rents in Bermuda. This place never ever gets old.
Honestly I went for one run when I was in Bermuda which is unusual for me because usually all I want to do is run when I am in paradise. So obviously I need this running break (which I am currently taking). I did however swim my little heart out. How can you not in this beautiful ocean?
Sister and I before dinner.
Anyway, I will be back tomorrow talking about my plans for running (and triathlons!) in the next couple of weeks but for now I wanted to bring up Mad Men from Sunday. WHAT A FREAKING AWESOME EPISODE. If you haven’t watch it yet, stop reading right now because I’m about to give away some plot details.
First of all, Peggy. Freaking. Olson.
I know I have talked before about Jobs I Will NEVER have (Part 2 coming soon), but if I had to list a job that I WANT (purely based on a TV show) then I have wanted Peggy Olson’s job since Season 2 when she officially became a Copywriter. Sitting around all day coming up with creative advertising campaigns? Yes please!
On top of it, how badass is Peggy Olson’s character? After she quits, she basically had Don Draper begging her to stay. When has Don Draper every begged anyone for anything?
During the episode, Peggy is offered a salary of $19,000 to switch companies, which peaked my interested, especially after reading this article a couple of weeks ago. So I found a website that calculates Peggy’s salary in 1967 to the amount in 2012. Here is what I found out:
$130K to be a Copywriter?!? Am I the only one shocked by this?? SIGN ME UP. I’ve already started googling “How to become a copywriter”. No but seriously if anyone has any connections let me know.
WHAT IS YOUR “TV” DREAM JOB?
