So…It Has Come To This…

Image

Well, the time has come and so fast! I’m actually really glad that it’s finally over because I am tired! I need a break, so this month out is going to do me some justice.

I can honestly say that my highs of the semester was achieving the grades that I wanted for assignments and tests, and projects as well. I also enjoyed meeting new people and bonding, making lifetime friends. My lows of the semester was missing classes and receiving those points taking off of my final grade, and not being able to make up for missed work. 

If I had the option to change anything, I would definitely do more research on my chosen career path. I just recently figured out what I want to do after graduation, and now I feel like I have limited time to learn new things. I have been in college almost five years and now that I am near the end, it hits me! Sad. I really wish I would have figured something out a long time ago, that way I could’ve done more to better prepare myself for the future. I mean, I still have until next December, but a year goes by so fast when your not paying attention. 

I have learned so many new things, especially taking this public relations course. I have entered an entire new spectrum of ideas and job opportunities for myself. I will be keeping my textbook from this semester because I feel that it will come in handy soon. I feel that I can be successful in public relations, if I be open-minded to everything that comes of it. Since I prefer to do the entertainment aspect of it, I believe that I will go far if I retain as much information as possible about the profession as a whole. 

Give Thanks….on Thanksgiving

With Thanksgiving next week, let us all take a moment (or two) to give thanks for the people, places, things, etc. we are grateful for (minimum of 10).

I am super excited about Thanksgiving! Besides my birthday, Christmas and New Year’s, it is one of the BEST days of the year! I am grateful for many things in my life, and I not only give thanks just on Thanksgiving, but every day. I think being thankful is an essential part of living. My list can on and on for hours, when I’m praying. But, I won’t be long-winded in my list for this post. 

I am ultimately thankful for God, who’s the head of my life, health and strength. If it were not for him, I do not know if I would have made it this far…with anything. I am thankful for life’s challenges, to the extreme! It is such a cliche` to say that I have been through many struggles, but this is true. I appreciate my past and what I had to go through to get where I am today. 

I am thankful for my family, my friends, and the different people that come and go on a daily basis. I feel that meeting new people everyday happens for a reason. They contribute to my life, somehow. I am thankful for my professors and my advisors along the way. I honestly need them to succeed! I am thankful for my organizational families, because without them our student organizations will not thrive. 

I am thankful for my education, with the most sincerity. I am a first generation college student and I plan to be extremely successful in every aspect. I am thankful for my college experiences, whether service activities, projects, and events. I am able to say that the majority of my resume` experience has been developed by volunteering. I have had the opportunity to participate in major fashion events (i.e. Miami Fashion Week) and events, such as Savannah’s Fashion Night Out and Actor’s Night Out. I have met some wonderful people, and have built relationships to last. 

Everyone has much to be thankful for everyday. It is by faith, strength, and bonded relationships that I am who I am, and how I will obtain the success I want. I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving (in advance), and to let everyone know to give thanks, not just on Thanksgiving, but each and every day. Be Blessed! 

This Dressing Thing x What Angel Thinks

Image

We have all seen this at one point or another. Clothing that someone else is wearing that makes us shake our head and wonder what possessed them to put it on in the first place (i.e. wearing leggings as pants). In your opinion, what kind of clothing should be banned forever? Also, what clothing do you think should be banned from being worn in the classroom?

To begin, I honestly DO NOT see anything wrong with wearing leggings/tights as bottoms, DEPENDING on how you wear them. For instance, if they are too tight, too small, too loose, too thin (translation: not enough fabric), or just down right ugly in print, I suggest that you DO NOT wear them! Me, on the other hand, I wear leggings as bottoms, but I also wear a pair of tights underneath so that the fit is smooth.

Now, this epidemic of wearing over-oversized shirts with bottoms is getting out of control! I don’t know what possesses girls to do this in the first place. I would be contradicting myself if I say that I haven’t done it, BUT to defend myself…I was definitely cute! I wore my cute cardigan, boots, boot socks, and scarf to perrr-fect it!

At the moment, I cannot think of any clothing that should be banned. I just think that people should wear clothing to fit, according to size. This really bugs me, it’s definitely a pet peeve. I just don’t see how guys and girls can wear clothing with their bellies bulging, boobs creating ‘the muffin top’, or even a females’ jeans squeezing so tight that the material is cutting their thighs when they walk. Yes, I’m detail oriented like that (laughs)!

I honestly do not feel that there should be a stipulation on the way that students dress when they go to class. As long as they are comfortable and it does not distract them from learning, why does it matter?
