Week 6 Class Notes

This weeks topic: Public Relations.

PR has never even crossed my mind. Until class today. It is a very interesting and all encompassing career path. It requires a lot of writing, relational maintenance, event planning, and education of others within and outside the company. PR is for maintaining and improving the image of the company and improving company-consumer relationships. The instructor speaking to us talked about how he worked for a mining company and how he had to tell the public what beneficial things they were doing for he town and for the environment. Most people have a negative mental image of mining operations but it was his job to portray the good of the company. This seems like such a demanding job but one that is so rewarding. I like how social this career appears and how connected you can be to outside sources. It seems like a very satisfying career and one I would want to become more familiar with and get some experience with. I was interested in finding more out about the PRSSA group and wondered if it would benefit me in a y way, being a Visual Media emphasis… Overall, seems like a solid career path.

Week 9, Day 2

It was soo hard to get out of bed today! I don’t know what it is but I am conscious but not functioning and cannot wake up and roll out. That was my struggle today. It went a lot like yesterday. Got some homework done and folded my laundry. Had breakfast and took a shower then got ready for the day. It snowed about 3-4 inches last night unexpectedly so that really changed my outfit options. When I finally figured out my outfit, I made a sandwich and headed down for lunch with Mitch. We had lunch and goofed around, and then I went to Book of Mormon class. While listening absently to my weird teacher, I worked on my crochet project. I am making a circular rug. It goes black, pink, grey/white combo, green and later I’ll finish it with grey again. Working on the green right now. I mad progress in class but didn’t want the teacher to call on me while I was working on it. I put the crochet down for a little bit but then I started falling asleep so I picked it back up again. After class was devo with Mitch and half listened to Bro. Winkel. Worked on the crochet a little there too. I had another appointment at the Academic Discovery Center again today so I went to that after devo. This time I only needed to add a few electives and she approved it on the spot! Hallelujah! But I didn’t have my card to sign off for Comm 100 so I’ll do that tomorrow. I trekked on home and suddenly got caught up in a Mary Kay facial party with my roomies. The girl who came over for it was so cute and so sincere. She didn’t shove it down our throats too much and she was just nice and bubbly/ I may buy a few things form her but not this week… I made a little dinner snack thing for Mitchell, he stopped by for a quick food break before he had to go finish some other things. Didn’t see him for too long but that’s okay 🙂 I talked to my mom on the phone as I started my HTML activity for Visual Media. i thought I was done with coding but here I am learning yet another language of coding! It wasn’t too bad and went quick so that was good. Now here I am, sitting on my bed, listening to Classic Rock Love Songs on Pandora, blogging about my day for those who care to know! Anyway, I am blessed to have it easy this semester and I am blessed to have wonderful family, friends, and an awesome boyfriend 🙂

Journal 3

Third day of school down! I had a great day at school today. Still not a lot of homework, but we are moving along in class. I am starting to get nervous for how big my workload will be this semester. I have a few challenging, demanding classes and I hope I can handle it. I like all the classes! It has warmed up today and yesterday which is nice, made walking from the top of the hill not as bad! I feel like i have started a good connection with two girls in my Interpersonal class. I met them on the first day of class and talked with them and the second day as well. It may not be much but we are already talking with ease and friendly. I don’t know why I find this exceptional. Maybe because when I meet people in classes, the first day they smile and talk and then the next they sit somewhere else in the classroom and pretend like we never talked before and look like they don’t want to be bothered. I try not to be that way but its also hard for me to reach out to others and make the first interaction so it’s understandable. I’ve also seen that a few people are in many of my classes. I need to talk to them ASAP! Those are the people that turn into either good friends or good acquaintances. Anyway, those are my communication observations for the day!
