common reactions to my limb difference and what i’m thinking (in gifs)

I thought I’d express the sentiments in today’s post better with GIFs. Enjoy!

1) “Oh my gosh, I’m sooooo sorry about your arm!,” kind of like this:

big changes

Me with The Glee Project’s Damian McGinty (formerly Rory Flanagan on Glee), Samuel Larsen (Joe Hart on Glee), Cameron Mitchell, and fellow intern Brittany

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.

The Glee Project’s Hannah McIalwain, Brittany, and I are total Gleeks

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.

 

Inspired and hopeful and excited,

Caitlin Michelle
