I like it. A lot. Because it's real. It's honest. It speaks of the reality of what people in Advertising go through... and what they don't.

Like spending time with kids. Planning their daughter's wedding. Or even taking their hobbies and interests a little more seriously. But then, it isn't always about the big stuff. It's also the little, seemingly insignificant things. Like having three meals a day. At hours that regular people eat at. Or going home before midnight. And getting 8 hours of sleep a day.

The way the industry eats at our time and chips off blocks of our personal lives, it's really no wonder that we begin to realise that we're missing out on things. We're missing out on Life. On the important parts of our lives. The parts that really matter. So this... this makes me think. About where I am, where think I want to be and where I know I don't want to be.

"I got laid off... and I'm finally
doing something that I think matters."

Kurtis Glade, Documentary Filmmaker

Maybe what I need is some lemonade in life.
Maybe then will I get to enjoy Life's sweetness.
