I spent two hours last night rewriting my resume and updating my Linkedin profile. I have three papers due tomorrow and Friday as well as a French test I NEED to do well on. As of late, what with so many priorities, it is hard to choose what deserves more attention. I value my education above anything else. When I selected Public Relations as my major, I should have realized that I had to cast my scholarly self aside in order to enhance my chances of recieving a successful career in PR.
I’ve been fully more appreciative of Mark Twain’s philosophy: “I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.” Steve Rubel wrote a blog entry earlier last week about how PR professionals need to find new ways to simplify their lives. I’m doing so by listening to my French textbook Francophone on audio while blogging and skimming my Google Reader. It’s not working. I signed up for a tutor, who I know only as “Sarah”. I am meeting with her today for the first time. I’m wondering how to explain to her that my biggest problem with French is my inability to feel motivated to study it – period. Despite the fact it’s a beautiful language, I would rather spend my time gaining more points on thesixtyone than listening to recorded voices speaking French and having no idea what they are saying.
Professor Frisina has asked if I could help her create a blog or web album or what not in order to post pictures taken of PR majors at the Presidential Debate. Somehow I have become the “new media” girl despite that fact I am still a novice. I don’t think a blog is the right way to go – since it would show photos of the debate, it is dated material and something temporary must be used instead.
In the future I envision making some sort of web source primarily for PR majors to get news about the major, read updates about PRSSA and PRestige, share experiences about internships, or write opinions about PR in general.
I should probably learn French first.
I was going through Gawker and despite the fact this was posted yesterday, this post still cries out for attention. Pepsi spent millions of dollars to create a new logo – probably just to give one lucky graphic designer something to do. Let’s compare and contrast:
Money well spent. It reminds me of sailing.
