This blog comes to you from 2015! We made it! Also, here's all the things Back to the Future swore we'd have by now.
2014 was a big year for me that saw an internship in the NBC News bureau in Miami, an internship in New York City with CBS News, my graduation from the University of Miami and a completed broadcasting reel. If you want to get caught up on the adventure that was, check out my last blog post. And if you want to be ahead of the curve on all of the adventures still to come this year, (they'll be good, I promise!) follow me on instagram now!
Moving on, we did make it to 2015, and I hope you rang it in with some of the people who matter most to you. If you didn't, I hope you're able to find a few minutes sometime soon to call those who do, and let them know you miss them. Or don't, like, honestly this is your life and I'm not here to tell you how to live it, I'm just grateful you read my blogs.
"Here's the Thing..." is a new series on my website in which I let you know my deal on a various topic. You know when something comes up in conversation, and then comes your turn to weigh in and you go, "well, here's the thing..." followed by whatever you have to say. Maybe it's a little vent-y or soap box-y, but I have a degree in Broadcast Journalism and I uphold your First Amendment right to Freedom of Speech as much as the next girl.
I'm sorry if your intelligence was insulted by that description. I'm certain you would've caught on sans explanation but I felt more comfortable covering all bases. If you'd like to reclaim your power, feel free to always scroll all the way down to any page on my website and fill out that comment card if you have a suggestion for a "Here's the Thing..." post! I'd love it if you did that. On that note, feel free to use that comment card to talk with me whenever you'd like!
And now, the reason you decided to read this post, here's the thing about New Year's resolutions.
First of all, it seems New Year's resolutions are the butt of a joke these days. If you're at a New Year's party or having a conversation that takes place in the first few weeks of January, it's common you'll be asked about your resolutions: if you made any, what they were, and, this is the joke part, how long you think it'll be until you break it. In fact, a 2007 study on a group of about 3000 people found 88% of them failed to keep resolutions made at the beginning of the year.
