A New Journey

A New Journey

A quick poem inspired by the new job I start tomorrow…and a look back on where I’ve been these past few years!


A life no longer measured by school bells,

fresh notebooks, shoes and pens. 

But by the working days and hours,

again, again, again. 

Memories all jumbled,

months flow into years.

The pursuit of love and happiness,

drizzled by loss and tears.

But with growth comes opportunity,

and the chance to start anew.

A journey to embrace,

a journey to pursue. 


That time I interned at NBC Nightly News (2012) and got to film a demo tape:

And then all the interns got to grab a photo with then anchor, Brian Williams:

That time my school thought I was the poster child for Journalism co-ops (this is still the current pic on the site ahhahah):

That time I graduated (2013) and decided to make my cap look like a ransom note:

10152811866570118 10152819053305118

And then I landed a job at ABC News, Nightline after graduating (2013-2014):

10154744777415118

And then I decided to work at NBC Nightly News again for a bit (“a bit” = three months, 2014-2015)…

and then I said, f-that-shit, I’m going to temp and travel the world instead:

I graduated from Northeastern nearly three years ago and I’ve been able to have some really incredible experiences since then.

Looking forward to this next chapter; hope you’ll join me along the way!

Happy Tuesday, y’all! Good news: I got a job! Woooooo!

giphy

After spending this past year alternating between temping and traveling around, I’m happy to have found a job in a creative environment in the city I love most: New York. Though I’ve had real jobs working at ABC and NBC in the past, this really feels like my first REAL job. I’ve never had a salary or benefits or any of that good stuff; broadcast news was always technically freelance and hourly…no bueno.

Oh, and another amazingly awesome perk of this job? UNLIMITED VACATION! Obviously not to be abused, but at least I can count on getting my fair share of traveling time in! Yayayyayay!

More fun news for today – I’ve been asked to write for a site called Tiplr. For all you adventure seekers and foodies, it’s a great site to get tips from locals in various cities around the world. Check out my first post — here.

That’s all for today folks –

Spread kindness and cheer, xo
