I’m in Melbourne right now and it’s been beautiful.
30 degree days and hot nights at Carlton Club.
Sonic Nurse is suffering a teenage riot and dirty boots. It’s punanza.
I’ve been to Derby day and watched the Fashions on the Fields, sat in hammocks and trawled streets. Parties in Richmond and smashed Whoppers. It’s only bee three days and I don’t think I’m coming home.
Totally. I am gutted. My mother stalked this and my personal blog and showed it to my entire family. Pretty sure I’m a 21 year old and all that free speech shit stood for something right?
I’m pretty fortunate in that my parents don’t stalk my blog, I don’t think they could really care less about it.
Unfortunately for me, my mother has nothing better to do than fuel an already broken relationship. She wonders why we’re not close? My grandmother just read about my dabbling with cocaine etc. I’m like rad, and even though I cam here to improve on my life, they prefer I wear it. Oh happy day.
I’m writing you because I don’t know what else to do. I like this forum of being anonymous. I’m in the middle of one of the worst times of my life. This boy, we’ve been together three years. He doesn’t love me anymore. It feels like a divorce, where we’re deciding who gets the house plants and the dishes. I’m leaving, since he owns the house. I’m falling apart at the seams. I look forward to coming to work, and I dread going home. I feel like the sun will never shine again, and that is such a fucking cliche but it feels so real and true right now. I never want to know heartbreak/ache like this again. How did it all go wrong? How did he decide I’m just “not for him”?
I know you don’t have all the answers. Do you know what your readers would do when they’ve experienced this? Could you post it? I don’t know what to do. I can’t drink my way through this one, I’m at a loss. I’ve heard it’s not true, that a loss will make you less, unless you let it. Fuck, I am falling apart.
I can’t imagine what you’re going through right now. I’ve had my fair share of heartbreak and long term relationships but I’m yet to live with someone, so much as live on top of them.
I know that feeling, like you’re going to die because when you wake up tomorrow, you’re still present in the now, and things are falling apart. What I can tell you is the heartbreak ends. Your heart can really only break so much. Right now something has changed and you can put it out there that you’re open to working with it. Who knows what a person is thinking at a time like this.
You are not going to die, I promise. You’re going to keep breathing, you’re going to cry on the kitchen floor, in his house and your new one. But whatever the reason is, this is happening now and you just need to take it one day at a time. You are strong, and you’re delicately weak right now. When your life is pulled out from under you .. there’s a reason. Just keep telling yourself this, there’s a reason and you will come to it.
If anyone has some advice for this lovely person, I am will to post it.
How did you get started in freelance music journalism? that would pretty mush be my dream job. What’s it like?
One day about a year and a half ago, I decided to start a music blog. It began to go well so I sent my work out to a few networks, one being MTV. I got a call from them, and an interview and successfully scored and intern position in their digital media department doing editorial for online. After I completed my internship, the economic crisis hit hard, and employment was frozen until March. I finished up in Jan and did some streetpress work and some free online content and also did a lot of favours for a lot of bands, earned a name for myself.
After that I was ask to work field for the 2009 MTV Australia Music Awards and it was my first paid MTV position. I worked so hard for two days that by day two when I finally hit the bed, I thought I was going to throw up from exhaustion. I didn’t, and went to V Fest the next day and several after parties.
You just need to have a wit about your writing, intellect in your networking and a good attitude. Never miss deadlines, do a lot of free work, work the shitty jobs and take chances. I still have a long way to go.
