How many blog posts have been written titled some variation of “Update: I’m moving to Nashville”? Unsure. x+1, because here’s one more.
First of all I just want to acknowledge that it feels a little bit weird to put on this blog that I got a writing job because the writing on this blog, stylistically, is mostly personal, unprofessional trash. Which is my favorite way to write.
No SEO (I love a run on sentence), questionable use of photos, and broken links for days have gathered for me a grand total of 57 followers in five years of blogging and $0 revenue. I feel so pained telling regular readers of my misspelled, undercapitalized, overpunctuated blog that I got a professional writing job that includes blogging. But. That’s exactly what happened, so. Go figure.
Maybe I got lucky and Amy (my boss! omg) doesn’t read this blog (hi). If she does, I feel like I got away with murder for still being hired, so shout out to her for believing in me and understanding that I will never, ever, write this way under her name.
ANYWAY I’M MOVING TO NASHVILLE. After two months of searching around “my” city, (comm majors searching for a non-news-but-still-comm-job writing something not-boring, beware ChattNasty) I got a dreamy dream job offer from The Magnet that is Nashville that was just so shiny and amazing it was a no-brainer to take.
I’ll be working as a Communications Assistant at Nice Branding Agency in Nashville starting in April. I’m so excited and feel really lucky to be using my degree at a dream job so soon after graduating. Graduating a semester early at 21 was a huge blessing and this job is a huge opportunity for me that I’m so excited about.
Cheers to new beginnings! See you in April, Nasty.
