Oh hey!!

Remember me?? I'm back!

I know I know... I've been quite the bad blogger. I just felt uninspired and boring, nothing good to talk about!

However, I thought I should get myself back in the game. Not simply to write only interesting things but to keep a "journal" of my life.

This is going to be a big year with graduating, getting a job, moving out of my parents' house (fingers crossed!) and "taking the next step" with the boy! So buckle your seatbelts dear readers, it's going to be quite the ride!!

So what have I been up to since blogging last? Let's list it all!

1. I had a summer internship at a nationally recognized media outlet. It was intense, scary, intimidating, but really a good experience. I was in there when big stories broke and I simply just had to get out of the way to sitting on facebook around looking for stories. Great resume builder but definitely something I couldn't do for the rest of my life. I'm "over" journalism! Good thing I'm concentrating in Public Relations!

2. I started my senior year and my position as managing editor andddd an internship in the Admissions office. So I've been a little busy! The newspaper's doing greaat, I've made quite a number of changes which is exciting. On the other side, it requires a LOT of work. Every Tuesday night, I stay from 3p.m. ish until 4-7 a.m. Wednesday morning. It's pretty rough getting through those Wednesdays with 2-4 hours of sleep. Hopefully this semester will be different!
The internship has really given me the great hands on experience that I wanted. I interview families, read applications, and do a lot of office work. I also give presentations to groups and go to college fairs! It's a lot of fun. I really think this is what I want to do as a career, the only catch is there aren't any positions available there or in the DC/MD/VA area really. Frustrating! But we'll see, I'll keep ya posted!

3.PreppyBF finally met my whole family! That's right, 6 years go by and he hadn't met my aunts, uncles, and countless cousins! They all pretty much live in NY and don't come to visit us so it's not like he's ever had the opportunity. He came up to NY with us this year and I think it went well! My grandmother even bought him a present which I thought was so sweet since she's not that mobile.

4. I applied for some jobs (!) It's pretty nerve-wracking to think I'll need a real big girl job in less than 5 months. The economy's not great but I'm still aiming to get that job asap. I made the mistake a couple weeks ago to apply for "marketing jobs" to find out that they're all tele-marketing. No thanks! I didn't spend four years in school to harass people over the phone. Looks like I'm going to be a "regular" at the Career Center this semester... oyyy

So for now I'm just hangin at home! PreppyBF is doing the law school thanngg with lots of reading so I don't get to see him much during the week. I go back to school on Sunday, with classes starting Monday.

Is there anything you'd like me to fill ya in on? Let me know!
