Hey boos, what’s cracking?
Okay, so apologies for the lack of posts over the weekend, things have been HECTIC in my world and I’ve barely had a moment to myself.
If you follow me on Twitter (@stefinitely85) you’ve probably seen by now that I have an exciting new job working for BuzzFeed Australia, which is totally my dream job and I am SO over-the-moon thrilled about it.
Here’s how that shit went down. About six weeks ago, I saw that they were advertising for a staff writer. I thought “Yes, please!” and posted some sample posts on my BuzzFeed community page. The post “22 reasons we need a full season of The Mindy Project” next season” got picked up by the Community page editors, and then promoted to the front page, which was basically the most exciting thing ever… until Mindy Kaling tweeted a link to my post and I DIED.
Like, my idol Mindy read something I wrote and thought “yeah, I’ll tweet a link to that!” BEST. And in doing that, a ton more people saw my post, I got an interview for my dream job, and found out I got the position on Friday afternoon. Basically, my best friend who doesn’t know anything about our friendship got me my dream job, is that not the greatest thing that’s ever happened in the history of the entire goddamn world?!
But on a serious note, though, I have to thank every single reader of PCP for all the support over the years. Your encouragement and the fact that y’all check for me has been so amazing and without you guys, I probably wouldn’t have kept this site going, and wouldn’t have had anything to show my new employers. So a huge, huge thank you to every single one of you who’s been reading my posts over the years. You mean the world to me.
Now for the practical stuff.
The job is in Sydney, and I’m in Adelaide. I start in four weeks from today, and I have A TON to get done in that time. With that in mind, I might be a little lax on my posting schedule over the next few weeks while I get everything sorted, but I’m not closing PCP down or anything like that, so don’t fret. I’ll be back and better than ever, with BuzzFeed posts to boot! And if you’re thinking “BUT OMG THE VMAS AND EMMYS ARE THIS MONTH IS SHE GOING TO COVER THEM?!” My answer is “Duh, obvi. You think I’ma miss my second and third favourite award shows just because I’m moving? Lol no. I have my priorities in check gurl. x”
