Tracey - Yes, I did move out of South Florida! After a lot of hard work and persistence (and stalking my college admissions advisor, I may or may not be joking) I got into UF! Where the hard work continues, but I love it!
One of my favorite pictures of an older part of campus, simply because of the beautiful sky:
And the more famous Century Tower hidden between the trees (and a mini history lesson to boot!):
And Eat, Sleep, Run Whenever: You said flog! So you get a shoutout because that I think that is such a great word, especially after all my time sailing, so this picture is for you, straight from the Pacific Ocean:
'Twas taken on a 22-day sail to Hawaii.
After working all through the weekend, it's back to the grind- spring break is over, I'm back interning (bet you can figure out where if ya keep reading posts, but I don't want to hint too much- anyone watch Kell on Earth?) - THAT episode really speaks to how powerful social media is! If you don't watch it, ya should: speaks to how crazy the fashion industry really is. I can't believe I used to want to do that!
In the spirit of new, non-food-taking pictures at this point, I'll tell you guys some more deets about me-self. I am NOT studying event planning, a crucial skill for People's Revolution... but I could one day go the event planning route. Maybe.
I am studying.... let me rephrase this... I am a double major (cause don't that just sound more impressive about my ed-u-ma-ca-shun?;) in Journalism major with a Computer and Information Science and Engineering and an Anthropology Minor and an outside concentration in Sociology (the last two came about from all of my school transfers- Class Afloat to FAU to Santa Fe to UF!
Whew! What can I say, I love to move... and learn! Guess you could say I'm a bit of a MegaNerd ;) But I really enjoy it and don't have to pull too many all-nighters... not til exam weekend at least!
Even though my studies are a mouthful (twss?), journalism is really where my heart is. I love the written word and its power to bring about emotion, truth, information and so much more. I used to think the changing technology (i.e. blogs, Twitter, etc... aka "citizen journalism") would ruin my career, but it has created so many new opportunities instead.
Guess it's true... When a door is closed, a window opens.
I'm really intrigued and engrossed in the power of social media, and would love to work in a field that allows me to use those outlets to promote a company or an idea. Just sayin' :)
I'll leave you in the words of the wonderful David Gray: "What will be, will be..."
