“Congrats! You landed your first job and it’s in Great Falls Montana…”
Moving away for your first job can be scary, and it can be even scarier when it’s across the country. Not to mention working in a high stress very low paying job can take a toll on your morale.
However, I am so thankful I took that job in Great Falls because it brought so many great people into my life.
In the world of television news you never know who is going to walk into a newsroom. It’s no secret that it’s an industry full of divas and competitive people who will do anything to get ahead. But then it also has its gems.
My first job gave me a lot of stress, but it also brought me lasting friendships. When work was rough I had these two to help me get through.
Now 2 years later, we don’t work in the same place, and don’t live in the same cities (or state), but still act like there has been no time away.
It’s pretty awesome being able to pick up a friendship just where you left it even when we are all in different places in life, our careers, and even physically. Being able to reconnect the way I can with these two ladies is something special.
The best ships truly are friendships.
