OK, have you ever noticed that when it rains, it pours? Well, the same also works for POSITIVES in life, too.
On Monday, I was thrilled to learn that my school’s portal, Connect, had picked up an article I’d written about Twitter and how I used it to network and gain a relationship with a local marketing company. That same afternoon, the newest edition of the school’s literary journal, The Aviator, was released, and I happened to have two stories and an edited photograph published with them.
Understandably, I’ve been floating on a cloud, euphoric in my recent success, and just in a great mood overall.
Well, much to my joy, I learned that another article I had written was picked up by the University’s PUBLIC blog – aka, what the world has access to – an honor normally reserved for staff writers.
I’m over the moon right now.
I think I’m experiencing Murphy’s Law, but in reverse. I’m not complaining – this has been one of the best week’s of my professional career. Especially now that I’m getting closer to graduation [October, yipes!], I need to start focusing on my portfolio and getting my resume up-to-date. These recent publications are items I can reference and now, thanks to a publication on a public site, can SHOW to demonstrate my journalistic and freelance writing abilities.

Huge thanks to the professors who allowed me to interview them in order to gain valuable insight and provide citations in my article. One of them happens to maintain her own [incredible] blog, which you can view here: 5Writers.
A little optimism [and lots of writing!] takes you far, my friends. This past week has proven that to me.
