After a few weeks of work I decided it’s about time I get to blogging about who I am and my experiences here in OKC.
First, I’ll begin by introducing myself; my name is Andrea Giacalone. Yes, complicated I know. It does not sound at all like it looks, phonetically… jackaloney, like, rhymes with macaroni. Hope that little lesson helped!
I recently just graduated from Ball State University with a degree in Journalism Graphics and am an intern in the Art Department here at The Oklahoman. It’s been an exciting time since I packed up my bags and moved to Oklahoma City!
I moved in with a wonderful young lady, Lauren; she sings and is very talented (check her out at laurenraquelmusic.com).
I have been able to travel to Tulsa, Fort Worth, Wichita, and back home to Kansas City.
I have spent a lot of time exploring Bricktown and the surrounding areas of OKC. It’s been such a fun time to be here with the Thunder doing so well in the Playoffs – EVERYTHING revolves around the Thunder right now, including the inside of our office and the Thunder donuts from Krispy Cream.
My favorite place to spend time at in OKC is Myriad Gardens; I LOVE this place! On Sunday nights I have attended the Twilight Concert Series. I would highly recommend this, the atmosphere and music makes for a great time!
Equally awesome was meeting James Marsden when some of the interns and I went to see a film during the deadCENTER Film Festival.
Knowing that I’m leaving in a month and a half is crazy; time is already flying, but for now, I’m reminding myself daily that I must take every opportunity to make the most out of my very remarkable life and I hope you enjoy following along while I’m here in OKC.
