The wait is over! I’m back to blogging!
This year has made me feel like Velvet Brown winning the Grand National aboard The Piebald (the horse’s real name if you read the book National Velvet). The training process was a grind, but the results have paid off.
January started with a significant amount of doubt and uncertainty, but the cogs began to turn when I moved in with an amazing roommate who motivates me both personally and professionally. I laid out goals for myself that I not only achieved, but excelled at – I covered a horse race in Uruguay, took part in the Keeneland spring race meet, was a member of the Kentucky Derby Notes Team, was accepted into a program I’ve been working towards since I was 12, went on a super awesome vacay with mom and just started a rewarding new job.
As a result of all this, I have not blogged since… NOVEMBER! BOOOOO! But I’m back again with plenty to say and many stories to tell. So here’s a toast to you for waiting patiently for me to clear Becher’s Brook (please go watch the movie National Velvet so you can understand my analogies). I’m going to work backwards, beginning with tips and tales from Miami (my mom is the best trip planner EVER), the emotions of covering my first Kentucky Derby, and the incredible learning experience of traveling to Uruguay by myself and being one of the youngest (and one of the few female) reporters covering the Latinoamericano.
So stay tuned and get ready to be entertained 😉
