I hadn't seen my best friend, J, in nearly a month and a half since before she went back to Canada for her winter break. On Friday we got together to catch up, and the subject inevitably turned to careers. J wants to make films, and me, I have been going back and forth between a few different ideas for months now, but with graduation approaching, I need to get things in order to start looking for internships and jobs.
She is such a great friend because she really helped me decide that I should just go for what I want to do, and that, at the moment, is photography. Wedding and portraiture. So what did I do, I put together my portfolio at my namesake domain, AliciaHurst.com. I'm very proud of what I came up with so quickly, and soon I'm going to be e-mailing photographers for potential work.
Oh, and I suppose I never mentioned to where the June/July move is going to be. Brooklyn! Yes, I know, we're not going very far, but it will be a smart move for us, with the boy keeping his job, and me finding one in the still-surviving NYC job market (as compared to Portsmouth, yes.) Mind you, I might not even get paid in my first job, but at least I can get experience! And a car!
