(First, thank you everyone for the kind Tumblr messages, tweets, comments, and FB messages wishing me a happy birthday.) As some of you may know, I’m really big on Life Goals. Life Goals are “big picture” things that I’d like to accomplish. I have other mini-goals that may add up to a real Life Goal over time. I take these very seriously. A lot of my Life Goals are personal things that I keep to myself, but one that is quite public and quite high (um, number one to be exact) is to be on the Today Show. I’ve watched the show since I was little and have always been completely intrigued by it. At some point in middle school, I decided I wanted to be on the show before I was 22. Arbitrarily chosen, but turned out to be a really good approximation. The only stipulation is that it can’t be for something bad. Well, I’m 22 today. And yesterday, an article I wrote was published on Today.com. Now, it’s not exactly the show show, but I think it’s definitely a good start. Over the summer, I was contacted by the editor and through various emails and phone calls, we came up with a few ideas. One of which is this 2-part article. It’s a watered down version of The Freshman 50, but covers the basic (and “big picture”) advice I have. Anyway- I love for you guys to take a look!!! You can view the article here. (On the home page!) xoxo PS I can’t wait for you to see the other surprise coming up on Today.com soon!
