Now, an update on my life that’s been insanely chaotic lately!
Good news first!
I finally have a job – a full-time internship with the digital team at Edelman. I start on the 4th and I am so so excited!
I will still be working with Brazen Careerist, and I also have a couple of other freelance projects in the works, including being an Android App Reviewer on Appolicious. I’ve already made a few reviews so be sure to hop on over there and follow my profile!
I’m also the new Social Media Vice Chair for WGIRLS DC, which is super exciting! Check us out!

Oh, and I’m still in school, which will be over in a couple of months and I will be taking a summer break (Thank goodness!)
So, things are great.
Which is when I start freaking out.
I’m doing everything that I love and have been working my butt off for the past two years to build a personal brand. I’m in a city I love, surrounded with amazing people (Friends, mentors and acquaintances), getting paid to do everything that I am passionate about and more.
Seriously. Is it supposed to be this good? I mean, this is when I screw everything up right? It has to be. I’m fine when things are stressing me out but when it’s good stress, I’m not exactly sure how to handle it.
Since I accepted the internship, I’ve been going through a roller coaster of emotions and putting my friends (and Andrew) in the line of fire of my crazy.
Is this what it feels like when pieces finally start fitting in?
There are still issues, and not everything is 100% peachy in my life. Overall though? I’m incredibly blessed and I’m so afraid I’m going to screw it up. As I told Andrew the other night in my very emotional state (after a few drinks), I’m damaged goods.
Honestly, after almost a year of being able to avoid people (yay [f]unemployment), I’m afraid that I’ve become a little anti-social. I’m really really hoping this new job and all the fantastic opportunities I have in front of me will help me get back to my normal self.
On that note, thank you to EVERY SINGLE PERSON who listened to my rants, whines & frustrations over the last year. I know it wasn’t easy (and you probably wanted to slap me a time or 5). Your patience paid off.
The show goes on.
