It’s comin’ along

9 Mar

I have updated my blog to be a little more with the times. I hope you love it’s new theme as much as I do. However:

BEWARE: Contents are likely to change!

It’s all a part of the learning experience of blogging. The more I change things, the better I learn the program. Ok, that was unnecessary information, but whatever.

I feel like my next daunting task is to actually find interesting topics, photos, and insights that I want to share. I feel like most bloggers somehow know things sooner than the rest of the world and that’s what makes them so cutting edge. But that has never been me, I have never felt like I was the first to get the information. I always feel like I am the very last to jump on the train. This is what scares me about wanting to join an industry that is at the forefront of providing information. That means that they somehow find the information before anyone else.

This should be an interesting test.

Is it a bad thing?

One night I was in the kitchen speaking with my dad about my future and career, as we do almost any night we spend time together. I had once again announced that I was changing my career path, this time to be an editor in the publishing industry. This outburst that I wanted to be something new when I grew up would have been well accepted if I was 10 years old, but alas I am not, I am 22. As a recent college graduate that studied theater, secure about the idea wanting to go into the arts up until the very day of graduation, I have changed my career path at least 6 times in the last 10 months.

Now let me explain, when I say changed my career path, I mean changed the idea of what I want to do in the future, not necessarily bouncing from job to job. However,  I have had a steady stream of internships and flubbed interviews to help me discover my future path. This includes working with a unestablished fashion PR company, assisting Eva Longoria’s friend with charity events, working bar and bat mitzvah’s as an event coordinator, the worst interview of my life with Live Nation where I almost yelled out “I don’t know why I want to go into marketing!” when asked, to my most recent internship at a magazine where I currently work as a receptionist.

So here is the ongoing list of possible careers I have considered in the last 10 months.

1. Publicist

2. Event Coordinator

3. Marketing Account Executive

4. Stage Manager

5.  Back to Marketing Account Executive

6. Editor/ Journalist

So you can see that with my most recent announcement to my father that I now want to go into the publishing industry, not known for it’s current stability, that my dad exclaimed that I was incredibly impetuous! And I agree, but whoever said that was a bad thing?

So I invite you to join me as I sort through all of my passions and find my way in this world, and all the ups and downs that will happen along the way.
