Today was one of just plain awfulness. Almost every aspect of the day that could have gone badly did so.
Woke up tired – hurried to finish PR Research Methods and Assessments paper before work – found out halfway through giving a tour that my school group was part of the ESL program and could barely understand English – printers were backed up in Hammer Lab – kept nodding off in PR RM’s and A’s – got charged too much for Chinese food – had my Physics teacher randomly talk about the importance of insects – got a migraine – called my grandmother since it was her birthday and she just sounded…old – tried on Halloween costume, doesn’t fit – dinner (more Chinese food) was an hour late – had two trackers sign up for my Airwave slot (thankfully both didn’t show up).
It sounds terrible for anyone to rant and rave and whine like that, but one must understand that these past two weeks of midterms have by far been the worse since starting college. What with all the Jewish holidays and the Debate, I’ve missed so many classes and put off work that I just ended up overwhelming myself. Not to mention I can’t say no to helping some one out and I’m an overachieving perfectionist (goddamn me). It is somewhat encouraging to think I can’t be the only one with constant migraines, lack of sleep, and a tendency to cry in front of the entire Marketing Department…..it’s all worth it in the end though, right? Character building? Maybe one day I’ll show off my bicep?
And to THINK they wanted to place trackers during my slot so I couldn’t have the ONE thing that is all mine. I am too young to have children, I have no significant other, and my family is two hours away, all I have— I spoke too soon…a tracker just walked in. GAHHHH
This was fun to find from PR week – student run agencies. The article made me think about how I want to take PRestige, call it my baby, and rework it to something better. Right now, we meet twice a week with just the main staff. I wish we could set it up more as a conference and include everyone involved with the committees. If only, if only.
Oh! and I just got Glue . What happens is that you download this application that sits in your toolbar. It is supposed to track sites you visit and take note of books, music, and movies you look at. “Friends” can follow you and track whether they have the same interests. It doesn’t work on all sites – for example, I listen to music on thesixtyone primarily. Glue doesn’t acknowledge the artists I look up on that site, but it does on Last.FM. Also, when listening to music and opening Glue, the song stops and you have to restart the browser all over again. I’m trying to be as fair as possible and not to purposely look at sites. I want to see how well Glue tracks what I look at. Hopefully in the future Glue will track what blogs and sites you visit.
what really matters is what you like, not what you are like. books, records, films — these things matter! Call me shallow, it’s the fucking truth.” -High Fidelity-
