It's the end of summer and the start of a new season...and blog. I'm a somewhat recent journalism graduate who was lucky enough to actually land a job in journalism a few months after graduation. It's a testament to my willpower and overall stubbornness to prove that yes, I can make a living out of being a writer in such a wretched economy. However, like many graduates I have a substantial amount of student loan debt that I will probably be paying off for the next 30 years of my life unless I manage to win the lottery or die in a freak accident. Faking my own death would not be an option either considering if anyone needed to find me, I really could not be too far away from a local Starbucks, book store, or any large building consisting of my favorite retailers...i.e. Woodfield.
Other essential things to know about me is that I primarily function off of a liquid diet consisting of Starbucks lattes in the morningand wine in the evening. As a journalist, I'll try to keep these posts interesting and somewhat objective...however this IS my blog so forgive me if my view is slanted toward one way or another. For instance, any commentary regarding media organizations such as Faux News...*cough I mean Fox News or references to politicians such as the latest bonehead that is Rep. Michele Bachman and/or Sarah Palin (both insults to women everywhere). Subsequent blog posts will probably have frequent mentions of these things among others including my life experiences, reviews, current events, and anything else that makes me...rant.
