I went ghost again on you guys, I swear — it’s completely unintentional. Nonetheless, I really want to get back to blogging regularly. For now, let me give you some updates!
I am currently the subsidiary rights intern for the literary agency, Writers House, based out of NYC. WOOHOOO! It is, sincerely, a dream come true. Writers House represents authors like Hank and John Green, Stephenie Meyer, Neil Gaiman, J.D. Robb, Nora Roberts, The Estate of Martin Luther King, and the Estate of Octavia Butler among others. I’ve only been interning for about 3, almost 4 weeks now. It’s everything I could have possibly dreamed of and more. I’m learning so much hands on and really bonding with the 16 other intelligent and lovely interns.
What else? I am currently a couch surfer. I don’t have an apartment so those three days a week that I spend interning in the city, I also spend at either a friend or relative’s house. I’m just trying to make due for the time being. I’m 24 years old, unemployed, interning at my dream company and that’s just the way things are for the time being. I’m hopeful that the unemployed portion of my life changes fairly soon but I’m taking it day by day.
I also wanted to make an announcement that although this blog is called, On The Deckled Edge in honor of my first and true love, books, I also want to use my blog as a platform to talk about other things in my daily life. I feel as though if I open my topics up apart from book reviews — I might be able to blog more regularly even if I’m not reading as often as I want. I have some ideas for upcoming topics but if you have any suggestions, feel free to comment and let me know what you would like to hear about from me.
‘Til next time. XOXO
