I have been away for a while, but I am back to update!!!!
My final FULL semester of college is coming to an end. Next week is finals and I couldn't be any happier. I was projected to graduate in May but I had some misguiding as far as classes were concerned, therefore, I have two classes I must take in June and July and I will be a college graduate July 28, 2010.
I am so excited and nervous at the same time. I am so happy to apply for job positions, I just hope I am able to get one. Everyone keeps telling me the economy is awful but I have to disagree. Public Relations is always needed, as well as event planning. I am sure I will end up doing something in between.
I keep in touch with Jiwon who is involved in event planning and is responsible for ALLURE. She is my go-to girl, and I look up to her in so many ways as well as respect her advice and guidance. She is a self- starter and is known in the industry very well, I would recommend her company and her staff for any occasion. We worked a successful event for THE KNOT last Tuesday and it was fun with a mixture of hard-work.
I think my ship has sailed as far as the bridal shop is concerned. I needed more money and it just wasn't available there. I adore the people who gave me the opportunity when I needed it. I will definitely go there when I am planning a wedding for myself. In the mean time, I will be a cart-girl at a local golf course for the summer. Those girls bank in tips and I am capable of being very personable. I look at it as another networking opportunity, for the short time left I have in school.
I have also been considering my own dance studio. I know what I want and how I could make it a successful enterprise. I haven't decided if at the age of 23 ( in which I will be in a few days) if I want to run my own business, or if I am even capable of it. There is a lot to think about, but I know I would have a good following in the area I am considering. There is one thing, I definitely want a two-story studio. I like the feel and the architecture of it. I want openness.
This weekend I visited one of my friends who had a baby a month ago. I have already seen the baby but this time I brought Barrett. He is so good with kids but was so afraid to hold her. He thought he was going to drop her and was nervous. He finally held her after much persuasion and it was the cutest.
Barrett cracks me up, he meets so many people and plays basketball regularly with a couple of well-known athletes. So it wasn't surprising to me that he was invited to play in a celebrity basketball game & golf tournament in Lexington Kentucky this week. He has a workout when he gets back for football, and is remaining positive in his efforts.
This is the last week my best friend and roomate will be living with me. I am sad, but we already have a beach trip planned for next week. It is going to be so weird walking down stairs and not seeing her but its just another chapter in our lives. NEXT WEEK I TURN 23...Oh my gosh, I am getting so old.
