A week ago today, I wrote a blog post titled “2010: A Promising Year.” I wrote about all the newsworthy things I’ve been up to since the beginning of 2010, and how I could only speculate what June and the rest of 2010 would bring my way. Many things have happened during the course of last week! Read ahead:
Last Friday, I went to a brunch hosted by Nicole Vargas-Viglotti, the faculty adviser for the Association for Hispanic Media Professionals (AhMP) at San Diego State University. She is also a reporter and multimedia producer at the San Diego Union Tribune. At the brunch, we congratulated Journalism and Media Studies graduates, and the new AhMP executive board members were announced. I am happy to share with you that I am now the Public Relations Chair for an organization that I hold in very high esteem. I’m SO eager to make AhMP grow in many, many ways!
The good news continues. Later on that day, I received a call from the internship coordinator at the National Guitar Workshop in Litchfield, Connecticut. They recruited me to go teach guitar over the summer! This will hold place during July, and it’s a high-paced guitar internship where I’ll get to teach, mingle with the highest caliber of musicians, and meet world-famous guitarists. I was floored when I got the call.
And even more good news! I won a free ride for a day in a 2011 Sorento Kia. Yes, an overnight, take-home, brand new CAR! I entered a contest and explained why I’d be a good candidate to ride the car, and I was chosen. This fancy, roomy car fits SEVEN people, has satellite radio, has all the modern goodies (bluetooth, AUX for iPods, USB port, etc.), and rides like a charm. I feel like a million dollars!
For now, I am writing this post from the glamorous hills of Burbank, California. The view from my hotel room is breathtaking: a star-studded sky and majestic mountains inhabited by Los Angeles’s most high-profile members. I am here to meet with lovely people I met at the NAMM show in January, 2010.
Thanks for stopping by 🙂
