Enjoying my new Rock Girl gig! And Happy birthday to me!

Hey guys Happy hump day! It's been a little while since I've done a blog so I figured it was time I jumped back in to refresh you all! As a little update from my Rock Girl life as well as my personal life, I have definitely been a busy gal. Now that I'm a few months in, I'm definitely settling in to the new position here with WRIF and getting more comfortable with everything and everyone. I have to be honest, before I won, I didn't anticipate on being this busy with the station, BUT, I am actually really enjoying it. I notice that many people that ask me about how my new job is going, aren't really sure what I do. SO, I'll explain it briefly and sweetly. 🙂 I am indeed here at the station Monday-Friday in the mornings to write, record, and edit my daily rock report. I've come to find that I actually enjoy using their equipment, and understanding how to do everything on my own. I'm the type of person that needs to have a purpose in what I'm doing.... I can't just be floatin' around here lookin' cute all day! Of course I have the fabulous Jade down the hallway to proofread over my reports (which air at 2, 6 and 8 Mon-Fri) and make sure I'm not feeding you guys any false information and running by the rules. I write my own Emails that get sent out to everyone on our mailing list every Friday! The Email Blasts are a GREAT way to find out where we'll be, where I'll be and just the awesome things we're doing that we want to involve you in! In addition to reports and weekly Email Blasts, I try to keep you guys in the circle on all the rock girl social media. You can find me on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, as well as check out my Rock Girl page at WRIF.com to see blogs, pictures, videos and more! I come out to all types of events several times a week, where I get to meet wonderful listeners, see some familiar faces as well as new ones, and of course to make what I'm doing FUN. Make sure you guys are checking out our events page at WRIF.com, it's a GREAT way to figure out where we'll be with concert tickets, event tickets, movie passes, WRIF gear, all sorts of things. So far, my first several months at the station I have learned quite a bit, and I'm using this opportunity to advance forward, meet the right people, get myself out there, and enjoy myself along the way!

Additionally, I just had a birthday! My birthday is August 24th, and I turned 24  years old!!!!!! That's my golden birthday-- where your age matches the date you were born. I had a wonderful time and met with some friends as well as my rockin' parents. Went downtown to Detroit for some drinks and music, and celebrated one more year under my belt. I definitely feel myself growing more as a person each year now that I'm in my 20's.

In other news of my life, I am the Maid of Honor in one of my best friends-- Taylor's wedding on September 16th, and attending another for friends Whitney and Ricko this Saturday. I am doing hair and Makeup for both brides. Which, if you didn't know, I have a passion for makeup and actually went to school for it. (HALLOWEEN IS COMING AKA MY FAVORITE HOLIDAY FYI.) I am trying to keep my health in check as I frequent the gym as well as being conscious of what I put in my body. I am looking for my own home currently, but might have to wait until the slower winter months at the station. And overall, I am just enjoying life for what it is... staying optimistic... and working at my goals. I threw in a couple pictures that were taken on my birthday weekend below, check 'em out!

I hope to see all of you soon. If you ever see me out, at events, or in public, make sure to say hey. I love meeting listeners, and new people in general.

Safe travels, much love, and rock n' frickin roll.
