I know it’s (acceptable contraction for ‘it has’?) been a while since I last posted, and I’ve undergone some major changes. My friends have been left in the dark about what’s up with me, causing them to wonder why the hell I didn’t tell them what I’ve been up to. So in case I’ve missed anyone, here’s what’s been going on in the Life of Bryan:
1. I moved to Seattle
Having been a former resident of Seoul, I can say I’ve lived in some of the world’s largest cities. But I’ve never lived in an American metropolis… until now. I even work on the 13th floor of one of the high-rise buildings that dot the Seattle sky. Speaking of work…
2. I’m an intern at a global PR agency.
I’m finally putting my major to work for me as an intern at Weber Shandwick’s Seattle office. I can say I’m finally using what I learned in college in the real world. I love what I do and actually look forward to coming into work every day. And yes, this is the first time I’ve ever said that about a real job and meant it.
3. I gave up freelancing.
It’s something I always said I’d do if I ever started working in PR, and I did that to ensure that I would give 100 percent of my focus to my job. I think it’s a good decision that I do not regret. Freelancing taught me a lot about running my own business and working hard enough for myself, and I’m using the life skills that freelancing taught me in my internship. But it’s time to move on, and freelance writing is in my past.
That’s more or less it. I want to promise that I’ll upload more frequently in the future, but I’ve made that promise before and it never works out.
