#IWroteForMTV

Thank the lord for teen moms!

And not just any teen moms, the Teen Moms. Part of what’s great about my job is that it involves a lot of TV watching, including Teen Mom OG, which I watched long before I started working at The NC. So basically, [part of] my job is to watch awesome TV shows (also in my queue: The Royals, The Bachelor, and Keeping Up With The Kardashians).  I’ve watched almost all the episodes for this season of TMOG already –and my lips are Gorilla-glued shut so don’t even ask for spoilers–
so that I can blog about them. -vSI2uSt

The fun thing about that is that I’m not blogging about them on my blog – wait, sorry, did you think you were going to get a Teen Mom recap on this blog?  I’m blogging about them for the network itself. That’s right, folks, I am blogging for MTV! I’ve written for magazines and online sites before, but no offense to The Towerlight, I think MTV has a few more viewers (LOL). I was incredibly nervous to write the blog posts because, come on, no pressure, right? Right. Continue reading

Hopes and Dreams and Wants and Fears.

Since I wrote my last post, a lot has happened. IMG_1134

Just to hit the milestones, I graduated college and got an internship at WeddingWire, watched one of my closest friends graduate from the Naval Academy, and stood as a bridesmaid for my best friend as she finally married her man. Also, Chris and Whitney got engaged and broke up, and Bruce Jenner is now a woman, so things escalated pretty quickly in the past few months.

It’s hard to believe I’ve graduated college. It’s hard to believe that Andrew graduated USNA and Aubrey Krueger is now Aubrey Bair. I’m not sure where the time went or how it passed so quickly, but the crazy thing is that it’s gone.

In honor of growing up and time going by and yada yada yada, I have a very personal post for you today. I’ve shared my thoughts, my dreams, and my fears with my boyfriend and with my friends from bible study, and that’s about it. But the point of starting this blog two years ago was to relate to other people who were taking this journey of life day by day, just like me, and sometimes doing it blind. Well, friends, right now, I’m doing it blind, and I’m here to share how I’m feeling about that.

SPOILER ALERT: It doesn’t feel good and I don’t enjoy it at all.

STYLE 25th Party

Hello, friends!

It’s been awhile since I enlightened you with knowledge, and I’m not about to, so don’t get too excited. I’m in the midst of taking 21 credits, and it isn’t a cakewalk, I’ll tell ya that much. However, I just signed up for my LAST semester of college, so I’ll be having a panic attack about that soon. I’ll be sure to document that for ya.

Since I last posted, Baltimore STYLE Magazine had a super-fab party (unfortunately, we got rained out and it had to be all indoors- but it was a blast regardless) to celebrate the mag’s 25th anniversary. There was a step and repeat AND a photobooth, so you know I had to get in on the action. Here are pics from the event!

My Chat with Ken Baker

I’m basically the new Giuliana. (Just kidding, G, you know I love ya!)

Basically, my life dream is to work for E! News. I remember watching the Golden Globes at my grandma’s house in Florida when I was maybe…8 or 9 years old? I sat there and thought ‘One day, I’m going to be there. This is what I’m meant to do.’ Ever since then, I have known that I wanted to major in journalism and go into entertainment journalism. If you know me, you also know that the celebrity trivia I know is unreal: I can name anyone’s husband, girlfriend, co-star, child. I really think it’s a gift- no one else knows as much “useless” information about celebs as I do.

When I had to do an interview with a journalist about their use of social media for MCOM 257, I obviously wanted to interview someone from E!, because…that’s the only news I watch.

Judge me, go ahead.

I reached out to Ken Baker (who always seems to be in the newsroom) and he answered back! How amazing is that! He’s also written multiple books, another thing I’ve always wanted to do. I figured this would be an amazing learning opportunity for me.

It’s Time I Write Again

My life has been CRAAAAZY. I’m interning at Baltimore Style Magazine, and it’s amazing. Since I’ve posted last, I’ve been published in the magazine, (on multiple pages…whoop whoop!) been to a fashion show, done a ton of other really cool … Continue reading
