Something every high school student struggles with is the line between professionalism and basically whatever you call normal teenage behavior. Well actually, idk if everyone struggles with this, but I do okay, don’t judge. True talk I just tried to “command-S” this shit, wow I’ve been writing papers for school too much. Back to the point, I have my DECA States competition this weekend and I have been trying to get into business mode in order to prepare. Cause nationals are in Orlando people, fucking Disney World. In the DECA competition, if you aren’t business professional, you can kiss your chances of winning goodbye. So therefore, I have been in full business mode for the past week.
I literally went to go pick up pizza tonight and as I was waiting for it, ideas for marketing and sales went through my head. It’s a problem. Besides, the whole business thing, DECA is awesome because you are surrounded by a bunch of kids your age who are equally as uncomfortable in their heels or suit. Its like a convention full of raging teenage hormones and insane nerdiness. Side note, a commercial just came on for a new lifetime show about child birth in the wild, what has the world come to oh my god.
Clearly my mind is in a thousand places right now but moral of the story, learning how to be professional even in high school is always a good idea. You never know when an internship is going to come by or if you are even offered a job. And if you are in DECA, good for you. And if you are not, get your butt in the club dude cause its fun and you could potentially miss school for freaking Disney World. Like come on.
