Allow Me to Introduce Myself

I'm new at this blogging thing, so I'm feeling like I should take the time to introduce myself to my, oh, zero readers. I'm not exactly positive what I plan to use this blog for just yet, which I do realize is not the perfect way to begin my blogging career. However, you need to start somewhere,right?

Where do I begin? I don't really plan on revealing every aspect of my life to all of you out there, so that I remain a bit elusive and anonymous. You know, to avoid stalking when my blog becomes the most popular thing on the Internet, and I earn a book deal and movie contract, etc, etc. Although I do feel that you should know something about me so I'll be more relatable. So here goes nothing...

I grew up in the suburbs of New York City, went to college in Miami where I majored in Music Business (minor in marketing), and since then have moved back North and worked in the "industry." I began working for a Rock n' Roll Merchandising company right after school, moved out of my parent's house a year later into a little town in NJ right outside of Manhattan, and struggled to live on a music industry salary while having the time of my life.

It was then that my neighbors threw a party, and I met one of their older brothers who would become my future husband. I don't want to say that this was the beginning of the end, but lets face it ladies, every young girl out there who used to go out every night before meeting "the one" knows what I'm talking about. It's not a bad thing, it just happens. You'd rather spend time at home with your man then go out with the girls to cruise guys. But I'm getting side tracked here.

Right after I met my hubby-to-be I got a new job, the job I thought was the greatest opportunity of my life (and in some ways it was). So I left my fun, everyone loves you here, comfortable job to be an assistant at one of the biggest agencies in the world. At first I was happy, thrilled even, I was learning new things and loving it! Two and a half years later, after many tears, pre-midlife crises, and disenchantments, I was lured back to my old company with a better position and much more money then I was making in hell (as I nick-named it). So there I am, back at the fun company where everyone loves me, so much so that 6 months later I've been promoted. And the truth is I'm very content.

So back to that side track, along with this crazy career path, I got married to my wonderful husband. A man I'm sure you'll hear a lot about as this blog continues on. He is after all, probably one of the main reasons I've been growing up. That and those birthdays that keep coming year after year (I guess they didn't get the memo I've had enough!). We've been married for about a year and a half, and live together right outside of Manhattan, in a great apartment that he bought 6 years ago before we met.

There is more I can bore you with, all of you zero readers I've already scared away with my blabber, but as this is just the beginning I'm sure we'll get to know each other a lot more along the way. So I'll leave you with the bones of it for now. Until later....
