|entirely too much stuff for one day|
Yesterday I attended my first official PRSA (Public Relations Society of America) function and it was amazing. Well, it was as amazing as a luncheon could be at least. The speakers were wonderful and it always inspires me to see members of my own community making a difference in the world. While I am way too busy to pick up any other hobbies in the next few months, I am going to make it a goal this year to become more active in the community. I think a lot of us (hey, at least me) get caught up in our daily comings and goings so much that we forget that there is a whole community growing and changing just outside our doors, and we can be a part of it.
Also registration information about PRSSA (Public Relations Student Society of America) National Conference will be out soon. I have never been to DC so that alone has me pumped, but I can also barley contain my excitement about the actual conference. I wasn’t overly involved in the group last year so I am looking forward to meeting new classmates and networking with some of the countries brightest and most successful PR professionals in just a matter of weeks! The official job hunt is just months away and I think this conference will give me some good material to mull over when deciding where and in what area of PR I want to attempt a career in first.
Even more exciting than above, I might be heading to Chicago this weekend/next week. Just a few moments ago this was only an idea but as I type I find myself considering it less of an idea and more of a plan. My mom and my sisters live in Chicago and have recently moved into a new home I have yet to see. I haven’t seen them since Spring Break due to all my summer plans and hectic work schedule, and I am totally ashamed. My mom is my best friend and my baby sisters are the loves of my life and I just cannot go one more week without seeing them.
I think I will be able to stay for 2 or 3 nights and if I can move my work schedule around I may even get to be there the two days of week my mom has off work! The town they live in is beautiful and the weather in Chicago this time of year is awesome for exploring and shopping so the timing is perfect. Many pictures of my adorable little mini me’s and my beautiful mother are sure to come in later posts. Still up in the air on whether or not I will drive or try out the mega bus. I am highly opposed to busses as public transportation but I HATE the drive to Chicago alone and I heard it wasn’t too bad. I guess we’ll see!
I’ve got to cut my ramblings here. Work is crazy today.
More to come,
