When Christopher first asked me if I’d be interested in moving to Oxford for a year while he did research, I probably should have thought about it harder than I did. But I was just like, “Yeah! That would be awesome!” I think it shocked him as much as it did me.
But it’s not just the idea of living abroad that is so exciting this year. I’ve been wanting to be a freelance writer for a while–there’s something so fun about the idea of getting to write for different publications from anywhere (although, not as exotic as I had envisioned, my “office” has been my couch this past month).
Anyway, I’m so excited that my first official published piece as a freelancer is now live! Thanks so much to the editors at REDBOOK magazine who gave me my first assignment. Click here to check it out!
