first, thank you so much to everyone who wrote, commented, and emailed me good wishes about both my recent breakup and job interview. i think, rather than this being a 'new chapter,' it feels more apropos to define my time here in tv terms, so: we are now beginning season 2.

i'm newly single, and on friday, gave my notice at work, because holy shit, in 2 weeks i will be starting my new job!

i got the fuckin job. i got the fuckin job, which means a lot of things are about to change.

so second, i have to thank my friend chad, who i owe everything to, for recommending me for this job, for talking me up to his bosses, and for making the whole thing happen - it's thanks to chad and celeste i was able to work a few days as a dishwasher on the cooking shows, and now i must thank them again for essentially making my cross-country dream come true.

so i'll be working as an associate producer on a full season of a half-hour series for an as-yet unlaunched network. i'll be working with the host of the show to brainstorm content, and organize that content into episode outlines. i have so much to learn, a lot to prove, and it's just the beginning.

it's also the first time in my life that my job has been in line with my career, which is maybe the most exciting part of all this.
