Sleep Deprivation

I am finally able to find some time to blog about my past couple of days. The Social Media Conference at Coca-Cola was so amazing. I learned a vast amount and all I have to say is college professors are BEHIND! I think not only should corporations go to these big conferences, but schools should go as well. I know Penn State was there and had a representative but that is only because I looked at the attendee sheet. No other colleges stood out on the sheet full of 500 attendees.

I basically directed people where to go and answered many questions. I helped with registration and did anything that Jiwon or Ashli requested of me. Jiwon was Ashli's sidekick in planning this event at Coca-Cola along with Ragan Communications who put together the conference. I was one of a few selected Kennesaw State University students that took part in this experience. We had to wear all black uniforms with red ties. Whenever someone needed something or wanted directions to a specific session they knew to speak to a "red tie."
Although, this has been a rough week and I am extremely sleep deprived I am so happy I am busy. If I wasn't busy with school and work and getting involved in opportunities like Coca-Cola, I may have a higher GPA but I would be so bored. I am someone who constantly needs to be busy and I am the happiest when I am working or dancing. I am stressed about a paper that I must have done before spring break and I am stressed about the many tests and quizzes I must do well on but this too shall pass.
With all the great people I connected with this week I hope that they will remember me when I am officially job searching. I graduate in July so it is not too far away, and I am hoping to finish with the last touches of my resume so that I can begin to send it out. I want to make sure that I have a solid job ready for me as soon as I have that diploma in my hands. I am excited about my contact with Jiwon this week. She owns her own event planning business and does everything from weddings & parties to big meetings. She owns ALLURE and I am hoping that she may let me shadow her and what she does exactly. Although I am interested in working for a PR agency or doing internal PR for a large organization, I am also interested in event planning. She is hilarious and made me laugh so much. She is good... I would recommend her to anybody.
I am ready for this school day to be over so that I can lay on the couch and watch Grey's Anatomy & Private Practice... another day at the bridal shop tomorrow. Stay Tuned!

After a fun-filled weekend working at the bridal shop, I am off to work a PR conference at Coca-Cola this week. I am so excited!!!! It will be held at the headquarters in Atlanta. I hope I can network and meet some important people who can help me in my career. Since I will be graduating soon I thought it was imperative that I make myself a part of such an opportunistic event.

On another note, we finally figured out why we couldn't find Renea's ( best friend) dress in any Casa Blanca bridal magazines. She wants a dress from "The Diamond Collection"...this is an exclusive new line they just put out and we do not have any of the new line at our shop, nor any of the books the line will be in. Right now it is all a mystery, but we are going to call and see if we can get it sent into the shop for her.

I have the busiest week ever, I will be at this informational Coke meeting for the afternoon & then the rest of the day/night will be dedicated to studying for my Theory exam. I am so nervous about this test, this class is going to be the death of me!!!! Then Monday class and dress shopping, Tuesday and Wednesday Coca-Cola. Thursdays are awful because I am sitting in the classroom virtually all day long, Work Friday, Jessica's baby-shower on Saturday along with all the many things I have to do for Spring Break ( so sad.... last one) and then I work again on Sunday. Tell me how I still manage to keep above a 3.0. Pure talent(lol) ! Well I am getting a grip of this blog thing, As soon as I get my new camera I can upload some photos. I am just praying this week is filled with success instead of sleep deprivation.

Here we go...

I am totally ready to be finished with school. If I hadn't changed my major three times, I would be done. Unfortunately, it took me longer than expected to decide what exactly I want to do with my life. As some of you may know, I am a PR major. That is PUBLIC RELATIONS for those who are not knowledgeable of the abbreviations. I am having a crazy last semester and I am drowning in assignments. On a happier note, I am helping my best friend plan a beautiful wedding. This is my first wedding that I am involved in, I mean hands on involved. We are trying to locate a dress that she saw in a magazine. Ironically since I now picked up a job at a local bridal shop, I should be able to find it for her.... =)
