masthead, here I come

I was officially offered the job tonight for the magazine position. It’s really quite exciting and even a bit scary. When you want something so much and you actually get it, it feels strange, like maybe it’s all a big practical joke. And I’m a bit nervous, as I’m venturing way way out of my comfort zone, the one I’ve been in for quite some time. I’ve got wobbly legs.

It feels good though. Even the scariness. I am looking forward to learning the magazine business and making a career for myself, finally, in a place I’ve always wanted to be. Magazines seem so silly and pointless in the grand scheme of things, but who cares. I love them and they make me happy and now I work at one. I’m freaking-a awesome.

I’ll let you know when my first issue hits the newsstands.

    YAY!!!!!! Congratulations, darling! I smell change. Or is that just Morgan? Speaking of Morgan, he also extends his congratulations. But that’s not the only thing he’s extending, if ya know what I mean. And I think you do.
