So, I know it’s been ages since I’ve published anything on this blog. But, I really do miss writing on here and want to do a better job of keeping up with it. I’m trying to figure out a solid direction to take with this blog. Any suggestions will be welcomed and appreciated 🙂 Definitely, wanting to keep it a lifestyle blog following the ups and downs of my life but maybe with a more specific focus.
I will be posting a food adventure later. A little gem of a food truck I ran into this past week. But for know, I’ll just leave this quote I came across that I will certainly be adding to my life mantras.
Edit your life frequently and ruthlessly. It’s your masterpiece after all.
Not a word passes between us,
not because we have nothing to say,
but because we don’t have to say anything.
I have not been keeping up with my goal of posting weekly. Life sure has gotten busy. Between balancing school with two jobs and an internship, I barely have time to get everything done each day. However, I can honestly say that I can make it on three to fours hours of sleep each night and be completly fine, so there’s that.
But, no sleep and running from here to there all day is worth it in the end. I am so excited to share with you my second round of published pieces. For December’s issue of Ohio Magazine, I was given the oppurtunity to cover different light festivals that are happening this holiday season as well as a reinvented recipe at the Granville Inn.
Check out my articles and let me know what you think!
“And if all that is meaningless, I want to be cured
Of a craving for something I cannot find
And of the shame of never finding it.”
A dream of mine has finally come true. My first published piece came out in the November issue of Ohio Magazine. This article is all about an upcoming art exhibit in Zanesville, Ohio titled, American Modernism, Urban Realism, and The Eight. The paintings feature artists who depicted what life was like in America during the early 1900s and how rapidly things were changing. With the influx of immigrants and the standards of living changing, they fought against the ideals of what was considered real art. The Eight painted, photographed and sketched everyday life during this time period.
I was beyond excited to have this as my first writing assignment at my internship. Art and its history is one of my favorite things to read and write about. I was very nervous while interviewing the director of the museum. I was afraid that I was asking all the wrong questions or that I would not have enough information. After the interview I wrote up my first draft and sent it to my editor. Again, more nerves. After some revisions and adding of things, it was done and ready to be printed. So, here it finally is. The full story can be found in the November issue of Ohio Magazine.
I can’t wait to share my upcoming pieces with you all.
Slightly different from previous food adventures, The Tea Lab was a nice addition to my Food Adventures list.
This cozy little shop is located in the E. 5th Aracde in downtown Cleveland. They also have another location in Lakewood.
The Tea Lab offered over 120 varieties of tea ranging from Chocolate Cream Truffle flavored Rooibos to Moroccan Mint Green Tea. The worker there was super friendly and helpful in choosing which tea to try. I chose the Gojiberry/Blueberry and Pomegranate Flavored Green Tea. It was delicious and smelled even better.
I cannot wait to go back and try all the other flavors.
If you have the power to make someone happy, do it. The world needs more of that.
Another big part of my life is, David’s Bridal. I work there part time as Bridal Show Representative. It is so much fun to be able to work with brides and their parties and being apart of their big day.
While working at David’s Bridal I have had the opportunity to meet so many new and amazing people, this is the part of my job that I love the most.
For all future brides to be and their parties, stop by and check out Today’s Bride Bridal Show, at the Embassy Suites in Independence today
