Did you miss me? Hopefully, you do because I learned so much since the last time that I posted on this site. I have done so much since April 2018 and I have to share this with my audience. If you have liked my previous posts or followed my account before, welcome back. If you are new to this site, I suggest that you read this post to know a little bit about myself. Let’s get started.
When I first started this site, it was for a project in my Participatory Media class. Now I decided that now would be a good time to revive the site as a personal freelance writing blog. I kept majority of my original posts because I liked what I wrote. It showcases my writing ability while showing off my personality. Unfortunately, I had to discard a couple of my posts because they were too trashy or too serious for my blog. You live and you learn right. I will be posting more of my own writing more frequently and trying to build my personal brand in the process.
When I first started this site, I was a college senior trying to achieve my Bachelor’s degree in Communications. Now I am a college graduate with a part-time job as Accounts Manager for a hedge fund. This job was not easy to find. I applied to over 100 jobs via Indeed, LinkedIn, Career Shift and more. I went on over 25 job interviews to only be told “No” for whatever reason. I did not give up and eventually I got a job that would start a foundation for my career. Nobody told me it would take seven months to get my first adult job but in those seven months, I learned a lot about myself as well as the world around me. For that I am forever grateful.
When I first started this site, I was a student. Now I am an adult. Most people do not think this difference is drastic but when you have gone to school for 20 years, that is all that you know. It is the only routine you have been accustomed too. When you are done with the school system and left to your own devices, it feels odd. You do not know what to do at first then slowly figure it out as time goes by. I still do not have it all figured out. I am working on it.
Overall, I am excited for 2019. I am looking forward to working at my job. I am excited to advance my career. I am excited to embark on a new journey into freelance writing and hopefully get some career opportunities out of that. I am excited to start this new chapter in my life. Hopefully, it will be a good one.
