After three years at CNN I and moved on to something new at A+E Networks. I don't talk much about my job on the blog because its very important to me and I wouldn't want to jeopardize it in any way. I work in media after all! Also, I keep my mouth shut because most people think its dead boring. Seriously, when I try to explain what I do to people I can see their eyes glaze over.
If you're interested: I'm a media researcher and my job is a blend of communications and social science and I analyze media usage trends (for TV in particular). What are our viewers watching? Why? When? What else do they watch? What else do they like? How can we use this information to create better TV and bring relevant advertising to the network?
Oh, did you stop reading? That's OK. I know most people find it monumentally boring, hence, keeping it off-blog.
So now I'm in this new and exciting role in a new office in a different part of Manhattan and its all just taking some time to get used to. I had a very good routine at CNN for a long time, until I didn't anymore, and that's why I haven't been writing here as much.
Life around here is boring in the best possible ways. Wedding planning, hanging out with my cat, deciding I like food shopping better than shoe shopping. I got food poisoning on my birthday and then thought I was going to die from an ulcer. We went to Miami and got drunk and ate tacos. I started getting manicures and stopped getting haircuts. Boring but good.
Since this is a fashion blog, I guess we can talk about clothes and stuff too. Last year I got hit by a car and I was really uncomfortable in my body for a pretty long stretch of time. It didn't move right and it didn't feel right. Then of course I gained weight from not moving around and the last thing I wanted was to take pictures. What would I even take pictures of? I was wearing the same thing every day.
For awhile before the accident I felt completely disconnected to fashion blogging. So many inspirational bloggers have stopped blogging. Then there's a handful that wear mostly gifted clothes or have made blogging a full time gig. I felt like I just couldn't compete with that. The point of my blog all those years ago was to find my style, and I did that. Now I rarely shop for new things and I've sort of settled in to what works for me. But I still have the urge to share, because while I know what works for me I'm still really interested in fashion and I miss the sense of community I felt when I was heavy into blogging and sharing.
I found a whole bunch of blogs that inspired me to start blogging again. My job makes me happy and I have a better work-life balance. I'm freaking getting married to the coolest dude imaginable!! More to come. Sooner rather than later.
