Personal Post…Afterall it is MY blog :)

If these don’t make you smile or think then I don’t know what will 🙂 The original author of these life lessons is Regina Brett.

1. Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.
2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
4. Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
5. Pay off your credit cards every month.
6. You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
7. Cry with someone. It’s more healing than crying alone.
8. It’s OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.
10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
11. Make peace with your past so it won’t screw up the present.
12. It’s OK to let your children see you cry.
13. Don’t compare your life to others’. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn’t be in it.
15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don’t worry; God never blinks.
16. Life is too short for long pity parties. Get busy living, or get busy dying.
17. You can get through anything if you stay put in today.
18. A writer writes. If you want to be a writer, write.
19. It’s never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else.
20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don’t take no for an answer.
21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don’t save it for a special occasion. Today is special.
22. Overprepare, then go with the flow.
23. Be eccentric now. Don’t wait for old age to wear purple.
24. The most important sex organ is the brain.
25. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words: “In five years, will this matter?”
27. Always choose life.
28. Forgive everyone everything.
29. What other people think of you is none of your business.
30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.
31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
32. Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch.
33. Believe in miracles.
34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn’t do.
35. Whatever doesn’t kill you really does make you stronger.
36. Growing old beats the alternative – dying young.
37. Your children get only one childhood. Make it memorable.
38. Read the Psalms. They cover every human emotion.
39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.
40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else’s, we’d grab ours back.
41. Don’t audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.
42. Get rid of anything that isn’t useful, beautiful or joyful.
43. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
44. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
45. The best is yet to come.
46. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
47. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
48. If you don’t ask, you don’t get.
49. Yield.
50. Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift.

And #50 just so happens to be my favorite!!

PR Class!

This PR class is my favorite class I have taken this semester. I love that the discussions were always open and we always had fun in class. I loved having guest speakers because they were very informative and helpful. They all provided insight into the “real world” of PR and getting jobs after graduation. They told us ways to get our name out to potential employers and some of them told us pointers for while we are still in school.  Some of the most helpful tips that I got were creating a portfolio, what to put in my portfolio, what to say during interviews for jobs or internships, and good classes to take in PR.

I have learned the ins and outs of PR including legal practices relating to PR professionals (copyrights, misappropriation etc.), marketing objectives, roles of PR professionals, the four elements in the PR process (RACE), and the differences in PR versus advertising and marketing.  I always thought that PR, marketing, and advertising went hand-in-hand, and while they are related there are big differences that separate them.  Advertising is paid space or broadcast time and marketing is used to attract and satisfy customers on a long-term basis. Public relations is used to build relationships and generate good will.

The RACE process in PR is important to develop a strategic plan for an event or campaign.  Research, Action, Communication, and Evaluation make a plan run smoothly and keep the goals in mind and on track.

I have thoroughly enjoyed this class and it has helped me realize that I am happy in my major and can’t wait to keep going and learn more 🙂
