It has been a while since I’ve been on this blog, so I am starting brand new.
My name is Katharine Friedman, I am a journalist/writer from Aberdeen New Jersey. About 6 months ago I graduated from Rutgers University with a degree in journalism. Since then, well it has not been easy. Looking for writing jobs in this market has proven to be very hard. I try and apply for at least 4 jobs a day, but finding a job with my qualifications has been like searching for a needle in a haystack. My parents are trying to help me, reaching out through friends, but honestly it feels like I am just letting them down. My dad only sees me at the end of the day when I have done everything he asks me to do, but he still wants me to keep looking. Aren’t I allowed some down time?! There have been times when I feel the weight of the world is on my shoulders.
Remembering I had this blog from my college days I’ve decided to start brand new. Basically if there is a story in my town, life or just a list of my favorite something or other I’ve had the brain it will be recorded on here. With luck I will do a blog a day and maybe let you guys get to know me a little more each day. Thank you guys for reading, this will be a fun ride.
