Describe yourself in 3 emojis
Describing myself in three emojis seems a little like a Tinder profile intro, but I’m into it. Let’s go.
— This is my most used emoji because… well… what I say might hurt your feelings but it’s gonna get said. This is my “please don’t be mad, it comes from a place of love,” emoji.
— The world with Mother Africa in the center because #homage.
— Because issa mood.
What are your five favorite movies?
For the next round of “Get to Know Kelsea. What does she know? Does she know things? Let’s find out!” I will introduce you to my 5 favorite movies.
1.) 2Fast 2Furious. This was one of three DVDs my family owned for most of the 2000’s. I’ve seen it about 15,000 times and I always find something new that I missed from before. Also, Paul Walker. RIP.
— sidenote, when you ask someone what their favorite movie is, they will always tell you what you want to hear. (i.e., Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Casablanca, The Sandlot, etc) But what about the movie that they can put on at anytime, any place and recite every word? Guess no one wants to own up to Napoleon Dynamite being their fave. Smh.
2.) Breakfast at Tiffany’s. (I know what I just said.) This is top 5 because Holly Golightly is a pretty accurate representation of me in my 20’s. (aka… now.) Messy apartment, overdressed at all times, parties where someone’s ish gets lit on fire, crying in the rain, etc. She’s my spirit animal. Also– I do know this movie is HIGH key racist and, trust me, I hit that skip button and watch through my fingers during those parts.
3.) Wind River. New to the Top 5 is a Kelsea fave that she just discovered. This movie is amazing because I should’ve hated it based on the thumbnail, copy snippet (who writes those, by the way? Always a very weird three sentence sequence that never actually describes what the movie’s about…) and title. However I have over-recommended it to every human I know. (Have you seen it? You should watch it.)
4.) Black Panther. I laughed. I cried. I applauded. It moved me. #WakandaForevah
5.) Inglorious Basterds. This was one of the other DVDs my family owned growing up. (Remember the Titans was the third. We had a tiny collection. Don’t come for the VHS list tho. That thing is a country mile long.) Why do I love this movie? I love everything Christopher Waltz does. I love everything Brad Pitt does. But the badass French chick who just wanted to be with her hunk of chocolate put me over the edge. Tres magnifique.
What makes you unique?
Okay, and now for the, wHaT MaKeS YoU uNiQuE portion of the pageant.
Allow me to reintroduce myself. My name is Kelsea (pronounced like Kelsey or Kelsi or Kelsee or Kelsie. But, y’know, spelled better.) I am 26 year old college drop out who has turned every L into a lesson to make a name for myself in the Digital Marketing space here in Columbus, OH.
I started working for a digital marketing agency after they found my blog and asked me to come in for an interview about four years ago. I immersed myself in this industry during my time there, learning everything about copywriting, SEO, social media marketing, web analytics, etc. I moved onto a smaller, boutique agency after that– working specifically in Social Media. And since then I’ve jumped shipped and gone brand side. (Lots of big brands in Columbus, what can ya do.) Sometimes, I do feel like I need to get out of Ohio. I’m turning into an ear of corn as I type this. Not literally, but very much figuratively.
My spirit is a free one. Settling has never been a part of the plan. Fucking up the marketing world always has been.
Thanks for reading all of this. Sorry I said fuck.
