Hello over there! The past couple of months have passed like the blurred scenery one can glimpse from the window of a fast-moving train.
In June, I started freelancing again. I’m writing for a lifestyle site called South Sound Talk. I enjoy being a journalist, it engages so many aspects of my personality: writing, meeting new people, taking pictures and learning people’s stories. In my freelance role I write features about businesses/places in the Tacoma area.
Also in June, I launched a blog called The Womanhood Honor Project. It’s a place that I envision coming alive with women’s truths. You know, the kinds of things we all feel, think or believe that maybe keep us stuck in life or keep us from being our most authentic selves. I want this online home to be a place where women can talk about things that impact their lives, their world, but also, I want these shared stories to uplift each other, support each other, and let other women know they don’t have to walk their journey alone.
In July, I started an internship with a non-profit. As the communications intern I’m working on press releases, updating social media, taking pictures at events, going out “into the field” to gather stories and use those stories to spread the organization’s mission, as well as to use in fundraising appeals. I’m also trying to do a bit of outreach for this organization, because I really believe in the work they’re doing and I want more people to know about it so they can benefit from the tools they offer.
In my “free time” (ha!) I’m spending time with my hubby taking walks, reading books on storytelling to prepare for my online certificate program that begins in October, and, of course, I’m working on my personal writing.
What have YOU been up to this summer? Let me know in the comments!
