I decided to follow my dreams of working in publishing while I was still young enough to fail horrifically but with that bildungsroman panache that will make my eventual memoir an instant best-seller. I quit my job at the advertising agency in Birmingham, sold all of my furniture, packed a Tahoe and my Avalon with the remainder of my belongings, and reenacted the Avett Bros "I and Love and You."
complete with horrible guitar playing
I took advantage of having relatives in the NYC area, and am now splitting my time between Staten Island and Pennsylvania as I hunt the hunt of the jobless. Which is really why I'm updating the blog, so yay unemployment?
I've actually already landed an internship at an indie publishing house in Brooklyn - it's unpaid, and I COULDN'T BE MORE EXCITED!
Here's the part of the blog where I promise things I probably won't deliver:
I hope to start updating a bit more regularly than once every 10 months, so I'm going to do my best to clear out the hilarious drafts I've been working on and off detailing my adventures. (I get lost so easily that finding a Staples becomes an experiment in cartography.)
I've also started a video blog (which I also need to update) under the youtube channel Sadie Awesome. It's not yet super interesting, but I have high hopes that it will be.
So that's what's been happening so far. Maybe I'll follow my own dang rules and update more frequently now!
