Let me paint a picture for you: a young Kyle Asperger stoops, shovel in hand, a bead of sweat diligently preparing for its nose dive, struggling to scrape up a rabbit carcass that had been pancaked on steaming hot asphalt for the better part of 4 weeks. The ecosystem of maggots, bacteria and assorted fungi who call the cake’s underbelly home is impressive, to say the least.
The Real World is a 90's MTV hit sitcom and conversely, a concept that continues to hit many people while they’re down. Part of the reason you’re reading this is because of my efforts as a young creative to combat such blows. I’ve been hired, fired, laid off, and bounced around from job-to-job; all by the measly age of 24. The problem had nothing to do with the field/niche I was pursuing. Instead, it was a lack of appreciation for my abilities…until now.
