I guess I could start by saying, wow, I should not drink and post. That is a bad combination after reading the last blog I published that I did not know I had published. I am waiting for my books to get here from New York City so that I can start posting my blog of My Life on the A train. I have several books written already and am ready to publish them.
Until then I suppose I can write a few things to get back into the swing of things. I have been looking for work as of late and not finding very good replies. My brain is scrambling on how to make it and get the bills paid. I have been researching and I see that the reality is I am going to have to do this on my own and make it work just as I always have.
I can and will post my Curriculum Vitae on here for potential jobs. You will find it here below.
Aingealicia’s Curriculum Vitae
There is a passion to explore and expose every last nerve to know you are alive.
Writers, artist in general, must be responsible for their work, proud of what they present, and have a passion to expose the story. Media has disconnected from their responsibility to ignite that eternal passion for the truth, to educate the public, to connect to a level of humanity, to hold responsibility for their art and what they put out to a society around them.
I do not want to be that artist, that journalist, that writer, or that person. My passion goes to the core of my being. I have known since a young age I would be a writer. The experiences in my life have enriched me in valuable ways. I have been blessed in my life’s travels with all that has come in my path.
Journalism and Courtroom work fell into my lap after I covered a few protest and a 3 piece expose on Michael Vick. I found a niche in research. With my exposure to Guantanamo Bay in the courtroom the experience created tears of joy, a foundation of more questions, and instilled the honour of the journalistic creed held by so few. In the same token, it crushed me to the core to see the atrocities presented; changing my perspective of sight as to what truths are presented in today’s world. These travesties affect all of us in society and someone must stand up be responsible to stop the slight of hand presented.
To risk is to live everyday as if it were your last. To relish in what is presented. To enjoy every breath granted until the only existence you leave is the touch you leave on humanity. To immerse, to become part of the story, that tapestry woven into the canvas of life presented, to create poetry from what is presented before you for others to see. To change the negative to positive, to expose the hidden lies, to risk to the point of an eternal sleep, to lay your life on the line to be the voice for the voiceless. This is what I bring with me from my own journey; honour, drive, passion. I have been told I am more of a story teller than a journalist. I would like to think they go hand and hand.
Right now I would have to telecommute until I am closer to the Madison area and though I know this is not your traditional cover letter. I am not your traditional writer either. I wanted to make sure that all those whom might be interested see my writing as it is and to appear as I am.
Thank you for your time,
“Aingealicia” Shannon Hathaway
