Hey everyone, did you miss me?

Sorry I've been M.I.A. from blogging... I seemingly misplaced my login information, had to get it reset.. Blah, blah. Long story short, I've been slacking. Lol.

So 2013 is wrapping- that's crazy! Time sure does fly. Looking back at the last year from start to finish, my entire life has done a complete 180. At the beginning of 2013, I was inbetween semesters at community college simultaneously waitressing at Chili's Grill & Bar in Brighton. I had made several failed attempts at hiring in at local radio stations and had almost given up hope on getting into the radio industry. That's when I was presented with this wonderful opportunity that is the WRIF Rock Girl Search. I took a chance, and after two months of hard work, I was unexpectedly thrown onto the road to success. I again can't thank all of you WRIF listeners enough (all of my friends and family as well) for helping me get to where I am right now: sitting at my place of work, Greater Media Detroit, typing this blog having just heard my voice on the radio delivering my daily "Riff Rock Girl Update." Whoa. (Mind you, the building is empty because no one is at work today, ya lazys.) (Just kidding.)

I've met so many awesome people, from co-workers to local rock bands to rock LEGENDS (ehem, Ozzy) to record label reps to radio industry connections and networking and more... who are all shaping my life and my future each and every day. To think, I'm only six months into my Rock Girl reign and I've still got another 6 months to go!

Cheers to hardwork, perserverance, and never giving up on your dreams- and let's let that be the continued theme of 2014.

Thanks, everyone!! I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas (or Hanukkah or Kwanzaa or whatever it is you may celebrate) and a wonderful New Year!! I'll see you guys in 2014!
