With about as much certainty of how the coming month will unfold as I do the entire year, I approach 2012 with anticipation. I’m excited about where I have been, what I have accomplished, the memories I have made, and the experience I have gained in 2011. I am confident that 2012 can only get better.
I have just finished an internship with the CFL, one of the most unforgettable experiences of my life, and am currently caught between trying to catch up on sleep from a crazy six months, preparing for Christmas, writing a business plan for a not-for-profit organization (from that humble desk you see above), and attempting to find something that resembles a full-time job.
So, as I find myself in this period of transition from student, to intern, to part-time entrepreneur/full-time public relations practitioner, why not start a blog? I believe, as a 20-something Torontonian with a passion for sports, communications, career development and people, I have something to say that just might be worth reading.
The inspiration for this blog stems from two people: Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project and Jaime Stein, digital media manager for the CFL. Both have had a significant impact on me this year (whether they know this or not) and both write influential blogs. I’ll talk more about them in later posts. For now, just start reading their stuff.
My hope is that these posts help other young men and women that are trying to get their careers off the ground. If you want to laugh at someone as they stumble through life, read my blog. If you want to get an amateur’s insights into career development, read my blog. If you want a girl’s uneducated opinion on the latest sports news, read my blog. If you want to be a part of my unpredictable journey, read my blog.
Thanks for stopping by! Here goes nothing.
