About

Most people put 15 years into a career, get to the top of their game and have people reporting to them by the time they decide to start a family.  I did the opposite. I got pregnant pretty young, age 25, and am still with my baby daddy (love you babe!).  I didn't have much work experience before I got pregnant. Between the time I graduated college in 2004 and got pregnant in 2006 I only had 2 years of work experience (as a Realtor) and then became a stay at home mom for the next 10 years.

I had jobs here and there but none of them lasted longer than a year and a half.  So, in my mind, I was basically a stay at home mom for 10 years, more or less.  I had trouble letting go and having someone else raise my children but now they are so capable and independent that they don't really need me anymore, not like they used to.  And trying to get back into the rat race is rough after 10 years.

Most of my background is in Real Estate and to be honest I never really liked it.  Showing people property all over the county for months and then having them drop off the face of the earth to never hear from them again crushed my spirit over and over again.  So, now that it's time to go back to work I've decided not to go with what I know, which is Real Estate, but to go back to what I started with - Journalism.

I went to college for Journalism, I have a degree in Journalism.  Hell, I even had an article published in a newspaper back in 2006.  I got this.  I can jump right back into the working world, into Journalism.  Any magazine, newspaper or blog would want me.  Or will they?  Is it enough?  Or have I been gone from the industry so long that I would have to go back to school to get a 2nd degree in Journalism just to get back in?  When I was a little girl I used to pretend that I was on the news, reporting live on TV.  I don't know why I abandoned my dream.  I know that being on the news now is impossible and that I would be just as happy being a columnist or blogger for a publication.  So, wish me luck on my blogging journey.  I can't wait to start writing....again
