Life has taken a wild turn. It appears that all the amazing and good things I have been working so hard towards these last two years have decided, all at once, to come to fruition. My schedule just went from busy to desperately, end-to-end, train-car packed, and my to-do list is a solid 3 pages, front and back, 8pt. font. I am learning how to organize like the Type A Personality that I am NOT, just based on pure necessity.
This also means I will have very little time to read. Or blog. Or sleep, eat, go out, make friends, shop, play, see the world, return phone calls, start practicing yoga, attend wine tastings, cook real food, catch up on The United States of Tara, go back to the cheese shop I randomly stumbled upon, dance, or sleep. Wait, I think I already mentioned that last one.
It’s a little overwhelming, but the resume cred in unbelievable, and the experience is unimitatable. I’m being given leadership opportunities I didn’t really see coming.
I promise to try to keep in touch, and use this blog as a means of discussing what’s going on in my life and career. And hopefully talk about the random paragraph or two I’m able to read each week.
You see, the Communications/PR field is such a fascinating one, and it’s ever changing. Combine that with the sheer electricity of the Art World and you, my friends, have yourself a frenzy of creativity and innovation that is hard to control. I came out of college with an English Lit degree that I wasn’t really even sure what to do with. Surely no one was just going to pay me to read and write all day. But that’s exactly what I do. I thought PR was for the sorority girls with the big personalities and perfect teeth. I didn’t think an introvert like me– who does have her moments of extrovertedness, but would rather sit home alone most nights and hates talking on the phone– would ever like, not to mention do well, in a PR position. And there is such an opportunity for reinvention in this field, and for carving your own style. I can’t wait to see the result of all my efforts and what opportunities come next.
