Hello. I hope your day is going well. My name is Kacey, and I am not a writer.
Then why write, of all things, a blog?
This isn’t for me, it’s for my friends and family, so I can keep them up to date on my new life.
I just moved to Albany, NY from Dayton, OH. This is my first time living in an apartment alone. I’ve lived away from home before, no problem, but this time it is a new city, state and job; all new experiences. I know my family worries that I will starve to death (my former roommates cooked for me), or that I will be very lonely and sad living so far away from home, or that I will go exploring a new part of town, get lost and never make it back to my apartment because I can’t get the stupid GPS to work. This wonderful blog will be a public record of my adventures in Albany, the friends I make, the things I do, etc.
I meant to start blogging three weeks ago when I learned of my new job at the esteemed Times Union Newspaper (owned by Hearst) in Albany. The idea was that I would blog about the process of moving, my first day at work and what not. I’m in the middle of my second week of work, so you missed all that; but moving is boring and no one wants to hear about work. You might be interested in what I do at the paper…
I am a part of the online department, I update stories and centerpieces, do a few blog updates about savings (which I know nothing about), and do design work for the website. Mostly it is design work, and its fun. But more on that later.
Thanks in advance for reading.
