It's 12:13 a.m. and I can now officially celebrate a new beginning.
- Because it's my birthday today
- Because I have never really blogged. Oh wait, does Nexopia count? (Yes, I just said that, and yes I am growing older.)
If you know me, you are familiar with the fact that in the past five months or so I have faced some tough choices. One in particular that ultimately drove me to seriously detour from the person I have known myself to be.
And well, if you don't know me, all I will say is that I took a leap at a time where I felt I had hit rock bottom but now, I have surfaced anew.
Today marks the beginning of something exciting.
Que, the announcement– I started a new job at the Okanagan Advertiser, a weekly newspaper in Armstrong B.C.
The paper serves residents of Enderby, Spallumcheen and Armstrong in the North Okanagan.
This job is an opportunity for me to commit to a greater purpose than just being a writer or a photographer in the Okanagan. It's the chance for me to share the stories of the people and places I get to know throughout this journey.
Some of you may be reading this and thinking, what the heck is that BS?! Armstrong is puny AF.
What even is a Spallumcheen... Or maybe you think Armstrong is lamesauce compared to Kelowna, and to that I say...
Stick around and maybe you'll gain a new perspective.
