Day 1 — The City Girl Chronicles
By Sarah Boison
A year ago, I made the decision to move to Washington, D.C.
I have to say that it was one of the best decisions in my life. After digging, I mean literally D-I-G-G-I-N-G into Craig’s List for cheap and affordable — but safe apartments, I found one downtown. And I have to say, I even have really cool roommates. Thank you Craig’s List (sorry if your situation didn’t work out — try again?)
But your girl still knows how to get down to Fetty Wap and Kendrick Lamar — don’t get it twisted. View the definition of Sophistiratchet.
So here I am, giving Medium a test run. I’m not sure yet if it’s because I want to or because I have to? But hey, I’m doing it! Learn more about what the hell Medium is.
Here’s the TEA on some of my past “blogging” experiences.
In 2011, I created InternWeekly on Blogger. I was interning full-time over 60 hours a week for $0.00. The struggle was too real. But then, I landed a paid internship doing digital PR and I was feeling myself. So the blog morphed into The Buzz at InternWeekly (yawn).
My grind was serious and after five months of job searching, I landed my first full-time position with benefits in August 2011 (I was out of school for over a year — yes I sobbed) and then promptly got into a car accident the Saturday before my new job. Classic.
I dropped “InternWeekly” because, well — I was no longer an intern and the blog became just “The Buzz”. All was well until life got too real in 2012 and I fell off the face of the earth. Since then, every attempt to resurrect that crap has failed. ABSOLUTELY FAILED.
I. Was. Bored.
And busy. So here I am. Not blogging again — but I’m ready to have a conversation with you early adapters who are too cool to call yourself digital hipsters or whatever. Let’s chat.
Oh and feel free to read about my life otherwise known as — The City Girl Chronicles.
