Not much too exciting has been going on this week. I wish I had gotten two snow days like Mizzou and every other school in the state yesterday so I could have had schwartzed Monday and Tuesday. Anyway, I went to school in the middle of the blizzard and even skipped lunch so I could just stay in the Comm building during the 1-hour gap between my classes and not go outside.
I’ve been pretty preoccupied lately with trying to find an internship for the summer. Preferably paid. I want to work almost full time and make monies too. I have to interview and write a profile of a Comm Department grad that works at a company in KC as a social media analyst, which I think would be pretty cool to do. I think they have some internships too, so I’m going to stop there and do my interview in person before I come home on Friday afternoon! I got the LinkedIn app last night which I’m pretty sure makes me officially an old lame person but I just really really want some experience somewhere. Hanna and I unwisely stayed up entirely way too late the other night searching for internships.
The only other thing I’ve been doing is trying to keep up on homework. I have a lot of ideas flowing for my website for Web Comm and I spent about 6 hours this weekend in the Mac lab on photoshop, drawing a header image of Tower Bridge. My assignment for Friday is to write a sample post for my blog, so I did that! I bought the domain name and my blog is going to be changing a lot over the next few weeks as I learn how to design it how I want, but if you ever want to read it, here’s the link. http://www.madaboutlondonguide.com. Super basic right now! Also I need to do some reading for Spanish (when it’s an independent study, you can’t get away with not doing the reading). Usually it’s out of our textbook which is in Spanish so it takes about 30-45 minutes to read… he told me the one for tomorrow would be in English, so that made me excited, but I just pulled it up and it’s 36 pages. Yeah.
GETTING SO SO EXCITED FOR THIS WEEKEND. WOMBIES + DEREK TAKE KC AWW YEAH. 12 hour saga here we come. Gonna try to motivate myself to do some extra homework tonight so maybe I can go shopping tomorrow weeeeeeee
Hey, it’s Wednesday. I kept thinking/hoping yesterday was Wednesday. I guess that’s what happens when last week we only had four days of class.
I realized this was the first weekend I’ve been in Springfield since the beginning of March. I volunteered early on Saturday, from 8:00-10:00, so I celebrated having the whole day ahead of me by taking a nap for two hours. Then I got to work on an assignment which was basically a visual representation of a resume, created to look like an advertisement. That was for my Principles of Advertising and Public Relations class.
I had a plan and I went to the Mac Lab to try and use Photoshop. I’ve used Photoshop before but not in a while. After it took me one hour to draw a single square onscreen, I called it quits. Also, using Mac computers seriously make me feel like Helen Keller.
This week is our “Spring Fling” week so I just got a cute free t-shirt. Tonight they are sponsoring an event at Andy’s Frozen Custard – free ice cream to the first 400 Drury students. So I probably can’t pass that up.
Tomorrow is “Theme Day” which is the culmination of our convocation series for the year. This year’s was called “Voices Unbound” which means that every Thursday we had a speaker come to campus and present, and these guests had to do with journalism or communication through media. Some of the guests included: Andy Carvin, senior strategist at NPR; Brian Stelter, New York Times journalist; and Ondi Timoner, a film producer whose work has won Sundance Film Festival awards.
My media writing professor is the one who organized it this year and tomorrow we are having a woman named Roxana Saberi come talk. She is an American journalist who got arrested in Iran a few years ago. Anyway, my professor invited me and two other students from his classes to a lunch with her! I didn’t know anything about it but I was happy that he asked me.
I don’t have any classes tomorrow because usually I have two Spanish classes but my professor is going out of town for a conference. Friday my two afternoon classes are canceled but I don’t remember why. I am going to St. Louis with Caitlin for the weekend so I can see her house so that will be fun.
ONLY A FEW MORE WEEKS.
