I have some amazing news. I have (almost) officially graduated from Ryerson University's school of Journalism and I am (almost) now set loose on the fashion world to report the shit out of it! I say 'almost' because until I get that lovely diploma in June, Ryerson still technically owns me... BUT with that said, I no longer have to go to lectures or write tests or do lame class assignments. I've upgraded in life! I am now the newest edition to the National Post's Arts & Life section - specifically the Style section! I am working closely with my editor, Toronto's fashion and style guru, Nathalie Atkinson and getting as many byline as possible and it's totally amazing.
Yes, I am unpaid. And yes, I have a cubicle. But WHATEVER, right? I'm working the fashion beat for one of the biggest newspapers in North American! Guess what my very first assignment was... "Elayne, could you do a write up of Paris Fashion Week? It's due at 5p.m. Thanks" My response: "Ummm HECK YES!"
|Walked in the door and saw this sign in the lobby. I was so excited I had to take a photo... the secretary thought I was an idiot... It's okay though. I'm cool with it|
|My very first National Post byline! AHHHHH|
|My byline on the National Post iphone app! STILL REALLY COOL!|
|HI! From my desk!|
|My really unfortunate pass photo. Why is it impossible to look normal in photos that matter?|
|My cubicle on the first day. It looks way better now. I covered it in books, magazines, clipping and so on. It's cute now don't worry.|
|One of the many amazing tid bits of news I get to laugh at loud to on the daily. Thank you Canadian Press|
HOLD ON, OUTFIT POST!
And just incase you were wondering, this is what I wore to my first day at the Post - Enjoy.
