I either have way too much on my mind or way too little. Either way, I’ve sat here for a good 30 minutes stretching my creative muscles to produce yet another witty blog post, but I’m failing. I can’t decide if end-of-the-semester craziness is inhibiting my ability to come up with ideas, or if I’m just simply not in a creative mindset today. Brace yourself…word vomit is coming.
As you may or may not know, I work in a communication’s office at the Warner College of Natural Resources. This semester has been the most productive we’ve had! It’s been great, but it also means I’ve dedicated a permanent space in brain for “Warner Only” thoughts. I can’t tell you how often my mind goes to promotion techniques for our John Fielder event (you should come btw, it’s free), titles for our Dean Joyce Berry tribute story (which I wrote!!!), poster ideas for upcoming events and picture ideas for our Instagram. We also rolled out a campus wide photo contest this month and have gotten an incredible response. We received over 150 entries from CSU students, faculty, staff and alumni!! Which is all great, but now we have to upload the Facebook album and add captions. Plus we have to choose winners—how am I suppose to decide on my favorites when all of them are beautiful. In addition to first, second and third place, we’re also doing a Community Choice Award. Which ever photo has the most likes will win. I encourage you to check out the album and “like” your favorites.
I had a “oh that’s why my card got declined” moment about 10 minutes ago. Thank god I get paid on Friday.
Classes (You know, the reason you’re actually in college)
I feel so behind in my Comparative Government and Politics class. Yes, I missed two days, but I didn’t think two days in an entire semester would kill me… I’ve got another paper for that class due next Thursday, and I feel lost. Maybe I’ll just stay up till 2 a.m. the night before and somehow pull off an “A". Just kidding. I don’t recommend that.
I’m getting my Digital Promotion Management test back tomorrow, and I’m not excited. I don’t feel like in the long run I’ll end up with a bad grade in that class, but I really don’t wanna see that test. I didn’t feel good about it. I’ve also dived head first into my client project for this class. Basically we find a client and roll out an entire communication’s plan for them. I’m doing my Mom’s watercolor business. It’s actually really engaging, fun and exciting (if you’re a PR nerd like me).
History… can this just be over! To all you history buffs out there: Thank you for existing because I couldn’t do what you do. I’m just not a fan.
GameStop’s newest “business goals” and hour cutting is pissing me off. Corporate. STAHP.
Love them to death, but man are they distracting. Although, my best friend is coming down this weekend which I’m suuuuuuuper excited for because I haven’t seen her since Winter Break. It’s just not the most ideal time. Whoops. We’re running the Taking Strides to Save Lives 5K this weekend.
Do you ever have a recipe that you really really really really really wanna make, but you just can’t find time? Yeah, that’s me. All the time.
As I’m mentioned in my Twitter (and possibly on this blog… I don’t remember), my horse is lame. Permanently lame if I don’t give him shots monthly. He can live comfortably without them, but he won’t be rideable. The whole situation is rough for me. It costs money that I don’t have, and it’s keeping me from one of the things I love most in this world. AKA stressful. But this is a rant for a different blog. We’re already getting too long.
Thanks for listening to me ramble
P.S. This is the recipe I’ve been wanting to try.
