I’ve had a million things I’ve wanted to blog about this week, but I’ve been too tired, too anxious to put words on the screen.
Friday is my last day at the Herald News, and I’ve been waiting to hear about a new gig. There had been a lot of silence, which was frustrating.
But today I got the word. I was offered a job as a Web producer at 1010 WINS in New York.
My shift (which starts at 6 a.m.) will require me to get up earlier than I’ve ever gotten up in my life. But that’s O.K. because I think this is a tremendous opportunity.
It does mean in order to cut back how early I have to rise, I do plan on moving. Again. I’m hoping Brooklyn with Hoboken as an alternative.
This turn of events is funny to me because since I left Washington nine years ago when I graduated college I always wanted to return. I wasn’t a huge fan of New York.
But now I’d rather stick to the area and even landed a job in Midtown Manhattan. In weighing where I want to be, I had concerns about moving back to Washington, in fact.
It seems there are more things — good things — keeping me here these days. My family isn’t so far away. I have made some great friends. I have my sports teams, including my ticket plan for the Mets, and I’ve discovered a new found love for New York.
This is an exciting step forward.
