Ms. V's BLOG!
Hello to all!!! If you are just tuning it (lol), my name is valencia aka MS.V. I have written some posts prior to this one but let's just start fresh and call this my FIRST official blog post.
A HELLUVA LOT has happened since I last wrote on here. I want to start out by saying that I want to make this a blog about a LOVE of mine: MUSIC as well as talk about my personal life and see how and what type of response I get from the reading audience. Music is what keeps me TRULY happy and without it, I don't know how I would function, lol! I want to discuss personal life because it's real, nothing made up. I know there are many people tha t can relate to what I go through on a daily basis, so I want to be able to vent about it somewhere where I know it can help another person in their struggle. WHERE TO START??? lol... Brief history...
I am a year old college grad student looking for employment (who isn't right now? lol). Got my BA in Mass Communications and want to get my start in the Radio industry. KPVU FM 91.3 is where I honed my skills and I will be forever grateful to them. Sirius/XM watch out! LOL! I have many goals in mind including, starting a podcast, a website and getting TWO Masters degrees. Living back at home has humbled me and my next announcement couldn't have come at a better time for me.
One thing that I do is when I start writing, I can get long winded, so I will do my best to keep it short and sweet! If I don't, OH WELL!
Let's start off positive. I was accepted into a graduate program this past Friday and I couldn't be more happy! I have a job available to me when I get there, just have to sign paperwork, and sign off on some housing forms as well. When I say I am BLESSED, I do mean it. Only GOD has given me this opportunity to travel and make something better of myself in a new environment. I have been through quite a bit of things since I graduated last May that has helped me to grow up and to learn life's lessons firsthand. I will say without the help of my mother and brother, I would not be in the place I am today. STRAIGHT UP. They have put up with my bulls*** and I have to say, I have said my peace to them quite a few times as well. ESP. my mother. :( Don't you feel like your parents don't listen to you when you are making a sound opinion or a good statement that is very important to you? I get that feeling many times when my mother and I get into arguments. The sooner I am able to leave, the better I know it will be to move on and start a living of my own. Oh i forgot to mention: the grad program is in PA. Pennsylvania for those that aren't aware lol! This is my first road trip alone and I'm so happy.
The job market has been a tough one for me. I've been laid off enough to know that going to PA is the BEST thing to do. Why wait for a job or apply to a job that isn't paying what I should be making as a college graduate? That may sound selfish or inconsiderate, but that is how I feel. I know workers in China will do whatever they need to do in order to work, regardless of the pay. Educated or not, they are willing to work extremely hard to get ahead and not complain. With the job market now, it is starting to look up and employers are looking toward the staffing agencies for contractors/ft/pt. If anyone is in need or is wanting to start looking for jobs, start thru an agency first and see how that works out for you. Since graduation I have only been on three assignments, but hey, it could be different for you.
I plan and will write to both my blogs on a daily basis. Even if it is just a sentence, lol! I want to be consistent and gain readership through my words. I want to personally some people who have inspired me to get in the habit of being consistent with my writing:
my brother Rickey, who through his hard work and dedication to his music and poetry has kept my spirit alive to get the fire going!
my fellow classmate and friend ashley, who gave me some good advice and let me know of some viable info about the media world.
two ladies who seem to be the RAVE on youtube, Candy and Skittles, who have a youtube channel called SweetAddictionsTV. All they did was start filming themselves doing their daily routine and talking about their daily routine and they have become a huge hit!! They inspire me cause they are doing what I am doing, just with video.
Anyone else who has given me advice, strength through stupid bulls***, drama and hard times, people who are down for me and people who genuinely respect me as a woman, sister, friend, lover (lol jk!) and human being! thanks for all the love!!
I had more on my mind, but I may have forgotten it... oh well.
If anyone know how to get a podcast started, holla at me, Ms.V on the following apps:
facebook: v. nacole wade (search) it should work, otherwise search with my full first n last name
just send a msg letting me know who u are, if u have info about it.
I plan to do a poll question each day or few days dealing with current events in music or otherwise, so if you all have something that can be discussed, hit me up too!
Will frequently be putting up a play list of my fave songs or a play list/album that I love!
I also will post up a video of SweetAddictionsTV so you all can see them for yourself.
I want to help out whoever I can so if you have any questions, please let me know and I'll do my best to answer them.
Lastly, thanks for reading my post and as always, PEACE AND LOVE! Feel free to leave a comment, I want honest feedback, for real!
