I thought I might update you guys on what’s new in my life. Currently I am living with my mom in Bed Stuy, Brooklyn.
I am doing an internship with idealist.org, a job board for nonprofit organizations that also lets you find internships, volunteer opportunities, events and more. (Yes I found my internship with Idealist on Idealist.) My official title is a “Video Production Intern”. Basically I do everything from organizing and logging videos to shooting, editing, and creating motion graphics, which is exactly what I want to do. My internship was originally supposed to end before Christmas, but they loved me so much they decided to keep me on until March. (I wasn’t emotionally ready to leave them anyway.) In the meantime I am currently looking for a job. During my internship with Idealist I learned that I really love nonprofits so I am currently looking for work in the nonprofit sector. (Yes I am searching on Idealist.)
After this internship, I definitely consider myself more of a videographer than a photographer. More specifically, I see myself doing web video. On the side I hope to do some short form documentary work, but it all depends on if I have the time.
As for grad school the answer is no. Well not anytime soon anyway. Yes I want to further my education, but I still have some soul searching to do before I make a decision as to what I want to study. I don’t want to dish out another couple thousand before I know what I really want. To aid my decisions I’ve been taking some online classes. Currently I am taking CS50: Intro to Computer Science at Harvard University. It’ll probably kick my butt, but I have to try.
As for traveling, I hope to do at least one trip out of the country before the end of the year but it all depends on what jobs pull through. Currently I am looking at South America for my next adventure but we will see what happens. I do need to whip out my backpack some point soon since its gathering dust. Any suggestions?
