Hello, all! I hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas season. I’m sorry I haven’t been blogging as often as I would like, but I’m getting back on the ball for the new year! In the meantime, here are a few exciting updates on
what I’m up to right now:
My new job is going super well! I love working at Current, and I especially like working with my former boss at Oxygen again – she’s awesome. The hours are long and I’m constantly busy, which is why I haven’t had as much time to write, but I’m loving every minute of it!
I’m 21 (as of tomorrow, anyway). I am now officially recognized as an adult and can be served alcoholic drinks at bars and restaurants. Also, I’ve been told this is the last birthday I’ll be excited about celebrating before I start feeling “old.” So we’ll see….
I am now a pet owner! That’s right – I adopted a beautiful Yorkie, the dog I’ve always wanted. I’ve named him Augustus (yes, after the character in The Fault in our Stars). Pictures to come!
Okay, so that’s it for now. Tell me: what are your big changes for the New Year?

Big things have been happening lately in my life, and I’d be a pretty bad blogger if I didn’t share them here. So with that being said, I have an announcement to make:
After a year of interning and almost 7 months of working there full-time, I’m leaving the Oxygen Network. I’ve had great times and wonderful memories working on shows like The Glee Project and Tori & Dean, but I think it’s time to move on. In two weeks’ time, I will officially become the Social Media Coordinator for Current TV. I love working in media and look forward to transitioning from reality TV to politics. It’s different, yes. And it will be an interesting first few weeks adjusting to a new company with a new staff in a new section of New York City. But I find comfort in knowing that my first boss and mentor will once again become my supervisor. And it’s great knowing that she’ll be there as I start this new leg of my career.

Am I scared? Yes, of course. This will only be my second full-time job at a major media company, and I’ve got butterflies in my stomach just thinking about my first day. But I’m also super beyond-anything excited about this opportunity. I love politics and I feel like I’ll be able to really make a difference.
