I got an internship with a wedding planner.
How's that for irony, huh?
The girl who just two weeks ago posted her thoughts on marriage is now working for a wedding planner.
But, I'm super excited for this opportunity.
I started college as a psychology major, wanting to go into event planning. I realized communications might be the better way to go so I made psychology my minor and switched my major to comm. I ended up with an internship in radio, was promoted twice in one year to where I am now and the rest is history.
I love radio and everything I've learned from it (the perks ain't bad either) but I've toyed with the idea of getting into wedding planning for awhile, and after throwing the Bambinos' birthday party, I knew that I at least needed to give it a try.
I'm working for the woman who put together my favorite room at Weddings on the Waterfront and I'm so so excited. She's super nice, and seems completely like the type of person that I want to work for.
Where does that leave radio? I still love radio and am not leaving it (a girl's gotta make her money!) but I've been wanting a new challenge, something that I can learn and grow from, for a while, and I think this internship is the perfect opportunity.
I have no idea what my life holds once the internship is over, but right now, I find that part of the excitement.
