I Only Promised to Stay 'Til the Wind Changed: Goodbye, My FriendsLaura Beck12/19/13 9:33pmFiled to: goodbyeslaura beck15924EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkIn August of last year, I emailed my friend, the awesome Katie J.M. Baker, to see about pitching a story to Jezebel. I'd just been laid off from a job at Google and was looking to do something a little less... Googley. She emailed back saying they were looking for an evening editor and would I be interested? Hell yes, I would be interested. Writing at Jezebel has been the best experience of my professional life. For any of you who enjoy the "Those We've Lost" montage at the Oscars and/or Hunger Games, please join me on an exhaustive trip of my favorite pieces: I've gotten to write goofy stuff, more serious things, quote my very quotable mom, talk about Anthropologie and Mod Cloth (my two favorite things to talk about), share more squees than you can shake a(n alive!) puppy at, and also once paid to drink flights of water like an asshole. Plus, I've gotten to talk shit on kombucha. I'VE LIVED, Y'ALL. ShareTweet Kinja is in read-only mode. We are working to restore service.
