I give up. I will never, ever understand how life works. Right when I think I have it all figured out, I’m thrown a curveball and sent spinning in another direction trying to catch it. That’s how it has always been and how it always will be- some things never change. But guess what? Some things do.
I used to be terrified of the unknown. I spent my days planning a future that didn’t truly reflect the person I was inside. It wasn’t until my breaking point last year that I let that all go. I stopped looking at the world around me for answers and, instead, I looked inside myself. Everything changed.
I found myself writing [a lot]. I found myself falling more in love with art and fashion and beauty. I found myself discovering a world of magazines and online publications that inspired me. Acting and modeling will always hold a special place in my heart and I’ll pursue those things whenever I can but they aren’t the things I spend every-waking-moment thinking about. That’s just the honest truth.
As all of these realizations were happening, an opportunity presented itself that I never could have planned for in a million years. An internship. An internship for this beautiful magazine…
I applied, met with the editor, and was brought onto the team in a matter of 10 days and have been giddy about it ever since. I won’t get into too much detail [yet] but I couldn’t be more thankful and excited about all of the opportunities this internship is going to offer. I’ll be writing for their website on a weekly basis, working hand-in-hand with the editor on material for the publication, contacting vendors and event planners, managing wedding information, assisting with styling, etc.
Today was Day 1.
Here’s to a fresh start…
