Leveling Up: New Job, New Blog (sort of)
Ladies, gentlemen, and ghosts who can access the Internet raw,
I’ve got some big news to share:
Nope. Even Bigger.
Well, for me anyway. Marilyn Pickard probably doesn’t care much about the career of some Canadian she’s never met.
I’ve been keeping this quiet (sort of) for what feels like months because, indeed, it was months ago that all of this started. That’s why it feels like months. I gave up hyperbolic language eons ago.
I’ve got a new job. A really, really great one.
This is an incredible opportunity that, in many ways, I’ve been working towards my entire life. I can safely say that I’ve never been this excited, optimistic or nervous (read: anxious to succeed) about anything career-related before.
While it was a difficult decision for me to leave my old job, journalism (online and television in particular) is where my heart lies. Hey, I didn’t go to j-school for no reason.
I will always have a keen an interest in creative advertising and entertainment, but when an opportunity arrises to work for one of the world’s best media corporations doing exactly what you love to do, you do not say no. You do not hesitate. You thank your lucky stars for the opportunity and dive head first into it.
I look forward to learning, working, growing and, eventually helping to shape the face of news in an increasingly digital world.
And after writing / deleting countless paragraphs elaborting upon how I feel, I think that’s all I’m going to really say about this right now. I’m happy
So what does this mean for Lauren O’Nizzle?
Well, first off no more MTV (Creeps, I hardly new ye!), CosmoTV, or any other major network activity. So BACK OFF already, NBC! I’m not interested in replacing Jay Leno just yet…
I’ll still be blogging, tweeting and vlogging, but my focus is shifting.
Less “omgaw look at this sweet party and how cool my friends arrrre” (that’s played out, anyway), and more of what I love. Clothes. Comedy. Gadgets. Design. Culture. Adventures in the city.
Things befitting of a respectable (yet somewhat quirky and unabashedly geeky) young journalist.
I’ve actually been toying of the idea of making this a straight up fashion blog. Style through a comedic lens. I love few things more than clothes and lollage. What do you think?
… Maybe I’ll work on the fashion thing a bit first
