I'm leaving the glass fishbowl that is television news.
And because of that, I feel like I'm a
I mean, seriously.
What do people do with weekends off?
Holidays at home?
Walking out of a newsroom for the last time today is gonna be bittersweet.
I'm looking forward to my new position, and there's a few other things I'm excited about, too.
Here's my "I'm-Not-On-TV-Anymore" Bucket List:
1-Wear patterns. Polka dots. I really kinda wanna wear polka dots. But shoot. I don't even know if I look good in polka dots. The world is about to find out...
2-Grow my hair out long enough to donate it. 'Cause you know what? My lion's mane won't need to be tamed every day.
3-Speaking of lion's mane...I'm gonna go an entire week without straightening my hair.
4-Cut my make-up budget in half.
5-Empty out my "work bag." Yes, including the extra ear piece for live shots, notepads, granola bar crumbs, business cards, 807234 pens (I'm sure only half of them work), etc. Perhaps I'll even switch to a regular size purse? That might be pushing it though, folks...
6-Wear fancy jewelry. The kind that's "too distracting" for TV. Ain't nothin' too flashy for a PR gig, though! #winning
7-Schedule a lunch date at least once a month with a friend. Because Lord God Almighty, I'll have a lunch break! What?!?!
9-Color my hair from a box. No need to spend hours away at the salon when the hubby can do it for $10!
