I got a promotion! I’m now the Senior/Head Editor of the political news publication I work for.
Senior Editors basically do everything a Managing Editor does…and then some. It’s been keeping me extremely busy.
I get up and start work well before the sun rises (that’s why all my selfies these days are taken in the dark lol). And I work until around 6pm. I typically work 12-hour days. Sometimes 14 hours.
I have one day off per month at the moment. My last day off was on March 17th, and my next day off isn’t until April 14th. Though, I’m told, I’ll have weekends off, starting in mid-May. I’m looking forward to that.
I freakin’ LOVE my job, you guys!
My only complaint is that I’ve been getting killer headaches from editing for 12+ hours a day, every day.
Some of my other editor buddies suggested that I try wearing sunglasses while I work, to dim my brightly-lit computer screen. I’m gonna give it a shot. I went to GlassesShop.com and got myself some prescription sunglasses. They should be here in about a week or so. Hope they help!
Anyway, that’s all for now. Thanks for stopping by!
