gwendolyn faith is not a crayon.

Hello, I’m Gwen.

I work in advertising. I play in the kitchen.

I’m part tweenager. (Look at my iTunes playlist.)

I’m part Grandma. (Look at my oversize cardi collection.)

I’m part Romy or Michelle. (Look at the height of my hair.)

As a Christian, I'm learning how to glorify God in the everyday. To live into the status quo, like Jesus' own Manchurian candidate, and seep grace through its cracks.

I wish my life were a musical, but other than that, I’m pretty content.

(No surprise I also like to Yelp.)

Faced with student debt, a discouraging job market and lackluster economy, many Millennials are focusing their energies into “side hustles” or “sidepreneurship.” Many side hustles are creative endeavors – passion projects that might not see any returns yet, that sidepreneurs feel genuinely motivated by and generally hope will flourish into full fledged enterprises one day
Side-hustlin’ via MTV Scratch. I’m so into the idea of sidepreneurship, but I think it has much more to do with being a creative outlet than another source of income. (via sometimesgeekischic)
In general, not just for kids but it’s equally true for the older Millennials, content provides their social currency, particularly funny content.

At the beginning of the school year, Mojo Ad — the Missouri School of Journalism’s student-staffed professional-services advertising agency that works with clients such as US Bank, Hallmark and Redbox — creates their annual State of the YAYA report on the youth and young adult market. The (incredibly talented!) Mojo Ad students work together to create a (beautiful!) factbook and presentation loaded with insights about 18- to 24-year-olds. Since I’m the Mojo Ad teaching assistant, I didn’t do any of the grunt work, but I coached the AEs and APs as they identified insights. I’m so amazed by the final product!
