Why This? Why Me?

 

Welcome to my blog. Welcome to my story.

The fact of the matter is, I love writing–thank you cards, blogs, short stories, journal entries, long stories, emails. There is nothing more satisfying to me than being able to transfer the storm of stories and thoughts in my head onto paper or a screen.

My love of books and reading may have contributed to this passion.

There is nothing cooler to me than being swept away in pages of text and using my imagination to see the characters…to actually feel that I am the characters. I feel the emotion and nothing is more depressing than finishing a book and not being able to continue to movie in my mind.

When thinking about how I wanted to document my journey through the M.I.T. program, I knew I needed to let my authentic self shine through and a boring old PowerPoint presentation wouldn’t do the trick (no offense).

That’s why you are here and hopefully reading the text on your screen.

Me and Nick

Do you recognize the man in the photo above? That’s Nick Clooney. Brother of Rosemary. Father of George. He’s also one of the most down-to-Earth humans I’ve ever had the pleasure of spending time with and learning from. He is part of the reason why I chose to document my personal and professional journey with a website.

Right after that photo was taken, Nick told me that I made a huge mistake by not getting into Journalism as I originally intended. After all, I was published on both national and local stages. I also had and still have an incredible curiosity for people and events which is why I listen more than I speak. I’m an observer.

Consider this my second chance.

Everything you find here will directly apply to me, my journey and the program. Please comment and share your insights. I look forward to giving you a glimpse of my imagination and learning about each of yours in return.
