Oops.'s been a little while...hasn't it?

Hmmm...last post...about change. I was excited about something...


What happened worked out for the best. I landed my internship. I was in and out in about 20 minutes and she told me she told me right then and there that she would love to have me work there.

Since then, I've been working at my public relations internship two days a week. I currently write the company's internal newsletter, (almost) all press releases, I manage the company's clipbook (a.k.a. I find every.single.article or blurb that is published about the company and put it in a binder), I've acted as an impromptu photographer for an event and sat in on a spur of the moment photo shoot. I've also gotten to accompany my boss on a trip to the local television station for a special taping for an event that happened last month! It was very exciting. I got to see all the local TV stars (didn't get to talk to them) but I saw them from afar.

It really has been fun and I am definitely getting great experience. Every single press release I write usually gets sent back to me full of red but I take that as a learning tool in refining my writing skills. I also have gotten some tough love when the executive vice president emailed me back a quote I wrote for him for a press release saying, "it's basically a quote that could be written about an usher". At first I was taken one has ever outright told me my writing sucked! But then I took a deep breath, apologized for being mediocre and made myself be better, which worked out in the end.

Enough about that about life?

This TwentySingle just had a birthday. Another year has passed. I look forward to this coming year with high expectations. I will be graduating from college (holy crap....I have to grow up!!). I'm looking forward to it no doubt (NO HOMEWORK! NO TESTS!! NO GROUP PROJECTS WITH PEOPLE I DON'T LIKE!) but at the same time, it's frightening. This will be the first time in my life, or since I was very, very young, that I won't have a plan. All my life, there's always been something off in the future; graduating kindergarten....getting to middle school...then moving onto high school.....then going to college.... But now what? I know I don't want to go to grad school. That's definitely not in my future. However, I will say that I know I will be focusing on my writing a lot more. I love writing fiction and I've been neglecting it for a long while. I'm excited to get more involved with that, hopefully crank out a future NY Times Best Seller (this is actually a dream of mine) and focus on all of me for once (mind, body, and soul).

I can't wait.


  1. Well done! That internship sounds really fun :)
    Would you ever say what company it is?
    I had a similar situation with a recent internship too. <3

    1. Thank you! It's been challenging but definitely fun! I might say the company in the near future but for now, I'll just say it is located in Midtown Detroit, which is pretty awesome!
