Hey y'all!! I just wanted to let y'all know that IT IS OFFICIAL..... I will be an intern for CMT...yes, Country Music Televison...up in Nashville, TN!!! WOW!!! This is so crazy.... and I was elated when the lady, Cinnamen, told me that they chose 15 interns for the spring and I'm one!! I'm one of two interns in the Radio dept! The Lord... is the only thing that makes sense to me, as to why they chose me. I am so Praising Him right now!!! Wow, do dreams really come true? Wow... bless Him.
I actually applied for the Summer, and they accepted me for Spring, I start Monday, Jan 9th!!.... everyone that I spoke with told me to not turn it down and accept it for the Spring. So I did!!! I decided that, if need be, I would postpone graduation for a semester. The plus side to that would be I acutally would get to "walk" across the stage to get my degree.... if you graduate in December, there is no ceremony, you just get it mailed to you. So...if that's the case and I have to push graduation back... my family would be honored to watch me do that. But, there is still a possiblity that I could still graduate this December. So, we'll see.
But wow!! I called my Mama... and after the excitement calmed down, she then proceeded to say, "Well.. you better stop picking your face (what I do when I'm stressed) and watch your figure and make sure you remember to pack your winter clothes when you move up there it's colder in TN in January".... doesn't she sound like a Mom? Goodness... it'll never change. Ha! I love her!!!
Wow, my head is SWIMMING!!!!! I have no clue which way is up or down. Ha! Now comes the fun part... getting all the necessary things in order...school credits... school classes moved... financial aid... and I have to find somewhere to live! If any of you know of anyone who has a spare room, let me know! Wow.. just think.. in one month I will be interning with CMT. I can't believe I will be up there in one month!
Here is the rundown!!I get there on the 9th at 9am... From 9-12.. I meet with the head for orientations!Then at noon.. I'll meet with my supervisor!! AND... have lunch with him/her!!!Then... the fun begins!!
Also, I have to throw this out there... Spring interns are expected to go and help out with the CMT AWARDS SHOW!!!! (Because it's in the spring) Shoot.. expected?.... I'm there!!!! Ha!! How cool is that?!?! I'm just freaking out! Thanks so much!!! God is so wonderful, and I give all the glory to Him!!!! He is so Good!!! Bless Him!!! Love, Miranda
