Since this is my very first post on my very first blog, I feel as if I should introduce myself.
My name is Sarah Marie and I'm 23-years-old. In September 2007 I married the love of my life - John, an adorable graphic designer and cartoonist.
Four months before that, I graduated with a B.A. in print journalism. After graduating on a Friday I started my first "real" job in the big bad career world the following Monday as a news and features writer at a concert industry trade magazine.
Oh, and John and I have two bad kitties- Winnie, the prettiest cat ever and Charlie, the fattest and cutest cat ever. Whew! That was a load of info!
I'm really excited to be starting this blog because one of my dream jobs is to be just like Jon Carroll, a columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle. I love that his articles range from political ponderings to tales about his cat. I guess that's the beauty of blogging - and you don't have to convince a major newspaper to hire you!
Lately, I've become obsessed with all the blogs on Glamour magazine's Web site. I'm so addicted; I always check on them when I get to work to ease into the work day! Also, from reading Glamour blogs, I came across the blog of another 23-year-old Sarah Marie. Her blog, which you can check out here, was the final straw that inspired me to start my own blog.
I'm such a dork-- last night I was thinking and thinking about starting a blog so much that I had dreams about blogging! What's the last random thing that YOU had a dream about? I hope this blog helps me meet lots of fun new people and keep in touch with my buddies too. Thanks for reading!
