I apologize for abandoning this blog over the past few weeks. Whether it was due to a lack of electricity, a shift towards paid writing, or a lack of interest, my blog hasn’t been up to the usual as of late.
Alas, things are about to get worse.
In short: I’ve sold my MacBook Air, and due to how PayPal disperses funds — plus the lack of a PayPal debit card at the moment — I won’t be back online until I have a new laptop… next week at the earliest.
What this means for you is that nothing won’t change much here. I will most likely spend Monday adding posts before I ship the laptop off to Delaware on Tuesday.
You all deserve better than what I have been giving you as of late, after all.
I’ve also decided that my degree and experience aren’t enough to get what I want: Gainful employment in digital journalism/media/etc. I’m going to go back to school for either a second BA (in communications) or a masters in digital journalism.
I just wish I came to this decision sooner.
Anyway, here’s all I did this week:
- Bid a bittersweet farewell to September 2012
- Wrote a piece about a flash fashion show for Louisville.com
- Finally met Danielle of Lou What Wear at the Louisville Magazine October Launch Party at the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts
- And celebrated my father’s 53rd birthday (and my 34th birthday again)
Also: A big congratulations to Miranda of The Chic Sheet, who is now The Voice-Tribune’s newest feature writer, profiling fashionable personalities in Kentuckiana for the society paper’s “Fashion View” feature (of which I was a part of earlier this year). Her very first profile is of Danielle of Lou What Wear, which was how I found out about Miranda’s new gig. Congratulations, my dear.
Finally, today marks the fifth anniversary of my return to the city where I was born after a 29-year-long absence. On this day, I left Tacoma, Washington for a better life, boarding a one-way flight on Frontier Airlines from SeaTac to Louisville via Denver with little more than the clothes on my back, a suitcase in my hand, and the boarding passes in my pocket.
My life since touching the ground that night so long ago has seen a lot of ups (weddings, births, reunions, new experiences), and a lot of downs (deaths, layoffs, the current state of things). I’m just happy to have had the chance to meet all of you through this blog.
No matter where this life takes me, do know that you’ll always be in my heart.
Until we meet again, please keep me in your thoughts, prayers, and/or whatever else works best for you. You can also follow my writing at Louisville.com by clicking upon the Louisville.com tab in the menu bar.
All the best to you.
