Wow! What a summer this has been, and today once again reminded me why I’m here.
Today, I did my first LIVE report in studio, and boy, what a rush! Now, that might not sound so exciting at first, but it really had a different feel than reporting in the field or doing a stand-up in a package. First of all, I loved using the teleprompter. I felt more professional and confident, because I actually looked like I knew what I was talking about instead of relying on note cards. Second, it was great seeing what it’s like to be on the other side of the desk during a live show. Usually, I’m behind the scenes helping set-up, operating the camera, working audio, etc.
Now, let’s think about this – so many people go to work miserable, wishing the day would end before it even started. Why live life that way? Why not make a change? That’s what I did. Yup, I’m a 25-year-old intern. At first, I kind of felt bad about it. I mean, 25 years old? Who does that? I thought I’d have my life figured out by now. At least, all my friends on Facebook seem to. I always see posts about cool careers and engagements in my news feed. Then, someone posted something that looked like this:
This couldn’t be more true. I needed to stop comparing my life journey to others’. That was their journey, not mine. I’m destined to do something different. I may be a 25-year-old intern, but thanks to HOMTV I’m on the right path.
