Fellow Readers/Bloggers,

I am writing this today because I regret to inform you that I will be moving to a new blog site. Yes I know, how could I possibly move from this wonderful world we know as Blogger. You must understand that social media is very important in my chosen field of work. I need to be the most professional looking I can, and Blogger just isn't it. I will be moving to in a few days...or weeks. I know this is hard to hear, but this will be a better place for me, with more opportunities.

Once I have moved and gotten settled in, I will post my link for the new site. I am hoping to have more posts that actually have a relevant topic, as well as more readers.

I thank you all for your understanding, and hope to see you reading my new stuff (Hopefully it's good).

With the deepest sincerity,
Is This Real Life?

I Guess I'm Back, Again

I know that I am so bad at updating, it is just super hard when you are a busy college student. This quarter is probably the craziest of my life right now. I guess I am trying to squeeze in everything last thing I can to put on a resume before I graduate.

A little of what I have been up to is designing a PR campaign for a couple events/companies. I am in Comm 637, which in non OSU student speak is Public Communications Campaigns. We are broken up into groups and we have make a PR Campaign for a real company. The company we are working with is called Azoti (which means nitrogen in Italian). You can look them up if you want.

The other organization I just got involved in is called the PRactice. It is a student run PR firm at OSU. I have just signed on to a team working on promoting The Ride for World Health (Look this up too, it's actually really cool).

I am just so excited about both of these time consuming projects that I haven't had to time to do anything fun, aka this, reading, painting my nails, etc...

On top of these two stressful things, I have been working on my resume. This has been so unsuccessful. I started seriously working on it over winter break. Then I realized how stressed and anxious it made me, that I couldn't work on it for the rest of the day. That day turned into weeks. Two Tuesday's ago I started again, but unfortunately became very overwhelmed with the thought of putting all of my achievements on ONE page. I took a break that lasted another week. Finally this past Monday, I sorta finished it. I would call it a very rough rough rough draft.

If anyone knows how to seriously write a resume and wants to seriously help me, or look over mine to critique, PLEASE let me know.

P.S.- Also any jobs leads would be wonderful!

Confessions of Finals Week

You know that feeling of when you are studying for a final that has material you don't understand at all? The anxiety and agony of thinking you are going to fail, and it keeps you up all night? Then you get to the class and the test isn't as hard as you thought it would be?

Yea that totally happened to me.

Now that I am winding down from my panic attack, I am about to start hardcore studying for my final tomorrow morning. Did I mention it's at 7:30 am? Yes I am serious, 7:30 AM! I can tell you are so jealous of me. 

The only thing that is getting me through this nightmare and last fall quarter of my life is knowing that I will be home tomorrow afternoon. I am pretty sure that most students studying are daydreaming of their upcoming return home, family vacation, or holidays. I know that at this point it is hard for me to care at all about how well I do on the test, I just want to be done. I want to finish and go home and forget this quarter ever happened (also forget our loss to Michigan). 

I also believe that I have packed way too much. I think I may have an accessorizing problem, or I am slowly becoming a hoarder. I am trying to tell myself that it's ok because I am packing for two different climates (but really it's not that ok). I guess I will let you decide. 

Wish me luck on my adventure with Bio 101 tomorrow morning. I sure will be needing it, after all, science isn't that cool. 

*QUICK UPDATE!- I got my final grade back from the test I took this morning. The one I was having a minor panic attack over. Yea well, I got an A. Now if only I can do that tomorrow!

Finals Week

I have been hard at work all weekend studying for finals...well trying to study.
I thought I would post a video that makes me feel a little bit better about my looming tests in the next few days. At least I have been attending class. 
Enjoy and good luck on finals to those who have them.

It's Time

So I guess I have been on a hiatus.....
But I'm hopefully back because I am fast approaching finals week and that means winter break is literally the light at the end of the tunnel.

I thought I would post some great videos that I have come upon today, literally one made me almost cry.
Seriously, ENJOY!

Only in Ohio

Today was full of news of a tragic event.

Last night in Zanesville, Ohio, an owner of 48 exotic animals committed sucide after letting all of these animals loose. This is a smal rural town in Ohio, and is not any kind of place for these exotic animals.

These animals were reported last night to the sheriff's office after being sighted traveling towards the Interstate 70. (Don't worry, I'm about an hour away from Zanesville right now)

I am upset with the situation because they had to kill a majority of the animals. I know that these animals were not taken care of properly in the first place, but now they are dead because of this selfish man. I don't mean to start debates, but I just love animals.

I just watched a press coference streaming live, and the police were not happy with having to kill the animals, which makes me a feel a little bit better. The police chief said that it was senseless for them to have to kill these animals, but it was just in protection of the citizens.

I totally agree with the protection of the community, I know if I were living in Zanesville right now I would totally be scared to leave my house. This still doesn't change my feeling about how the animals were taken care of. They even had the famous Jack Hanna at the scene trying to help out with rounding up the animals and he is an expert. I just think there could have been a better solution, but who I am to criticize the police trying to do their job.

I think the police were in the right trying to protect and do they best they could, I am just sad that we lost these amazing animals, for no really good reason.

Here is more on the situation and where I got some of my info from More Info on Exotic Animals in Ohio
