The Wide-Eyed Traveler

It’s been a little over a week since I started at my new job as a writer for Living Asia Channel. Now this is a new thing for me and I’m trying to learn the ropes as I go along. This new job is a change of pace for me from the 9-to-6 office grind. Instead, I’ve been given the freedom to do research on my own time. I just have to make my deadlines. And the biggest perk this job has to offer is that I get to travel.

Yep, that’s right. My first assignment’s coming up next week, and it’s a pretty big one. I’m supposed to host a 24-minute show about a weekend getaway to Bataan. This means beaches and resorts and historical sights, and I’m not just going to see these things as a spectator and tourist. I’m going to have to keep my eyes peeled and my mind sharp because as a host and writer I’ve gotta have interesting things to say about the places we’re going.

The writer part of me just wants to buckle down and get to taking notes already. The beach bunny part of me is just happy she gets to go places in a bikini again. Ü Work is play, and play is play! I think I’m exactly where I want to be right now.

Technical Difficulties

One bad thing about resigning from my regular job: I no longer have good internet access every day. Dial-up internet is really sucky when you get used to broadband speeds, so the ‘rents are signing us up for cable internet.

It’s hard to blog then, so perhaps you’d like to look at my Photo Log while you wait for my next post? Ü
