life lately

I feel as if I owe you all an explanation as to why I've been missing from the internets lately. You know, a better explanation than just "I'm so busy!" Let me just say that when it rains, it pours. (In the best way possible, of course.) These past few weeks have put feet to more change than I thought I'd ever see at one time. After a really tough decision that I made in my personal life about a month ago, everything else sort of fell apart and then began coming back together. It's been one cathartic moment after another really. So much growth, heartbreak, and adventure. (Sounds like the tagline to a corny melodramatic film but no, it's just my life.) Enough about vague personal updates though, I seriously love my new "job" and can't wait to see where it leads and that's what I want to talk about.

First things first, if you've never worked or interned in a newsroom but have always wanted to, definitely make that happen. It's such a unique experience. It's intense, fast-paced, and never the same. Every day is something new and exciting. You learn a lot (maybe too much. Okay, DEFINITELY too much) about your town or city and the people in it. Sometimes it's disconcerting but mostly it's wonderful. The sense of community is unlike anything else. Seeing the hurt and heartbreak is sobering and seeing how strangers come together to help other strangers is uplifting. Every day, you get a little bit of both. It's certainly no job for the faint of heart especially in a big city like Philadelphia but spending time with others who are passionate about news and about the community makes it possible.

Through my experiences at WTXF I've come to realize that I want to pursue an on-camera career. It's scary because it seems like such a daunting task at this point but I'm 100% sure that this is what I want to do "when I grow up." You know how some things just come together? It's an amazing feeling, finally finding your "place." These next few months are going to be an adventure. Not sure where I'll be come December, whether it be physical location or hypothetically in my career path but I do know that I can't wait to see.
