About Me

My photo
I am a 22 year old college graduate (hurray!!) who has two degrees (business and psychology). I am going to do the DCP in August because I dont want to grow up. I can't wait to be living in FL again in the happiest place on earth!! A cautionary whale: I talk about everyone and everything in this blog...my opinions are just that...opinions so take them at face value and if you don't like what I have to say...then don't read it, Einstein!

This is what the original looked like...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_0Ta_DIWuU

I think we were pretty close! It was totally awesome, not a single person looked at us funny for running like that! Which is pretty cool in itself but the crazies do hang out at the park so...

Lindsay and I did a blog while waiting in line at Disney....

So my trip to NYC was amazing... Unfortunately I had to come back to the real world...my classes start on the second and I have so much to do still! I haven't gotten Sarah anything for Christmas...I'm a huge failure! I am heading to Amanda's Monday to see her and to play Disney Trivia with her family. Tomorrow Im going sledding with Lisa Cometa (can you believe it? we're still friends, since pre-school!). And sometime I have to go see Jon. Plus tomorrow is NYE which means its off to the Jaceks with my fam. GAH, why isnt there more time?! I need ideas for Sarah!!!

How I spent my day...

video


So this is how I spent my day...watching JV boys play basketball and watching my sisters cheer for them. I love watching my sister cheer, the routines are always imaginative and entertaining. The music makes you just want to get up and dance...which is really the point of cheerleading...but still....Awesome music and fun dance moves...what more could you want...

Disney is done, and I am home in Hilton once again...


So I havent posted in a while but its been super busy at my house. First of all, The most exciting news ever! I got a C in corporate finance and passed it!! Soo wohoo I am that much closer to the end of school!

Disney-It was amazing! The girls Amanda and I went with were fun, but they were kind of Disney downers. So...Amanda and I went off on our own and did a lot of stuff. We got awesome pictures with Scrooge McDuck, Governor Radcliffe (from Pocahontas) and many others.


Amanda and I also got to try out the new Kim Possible thing at EPCOT. It was AMAZING!!! So much fun and I cant wait till they come out with all the countries! Also in EPCOT Amanda, Amber, Anthony and I ran from country to country to catch all the santas in about a 2 hour period of time. It was insane but totally worth it!

One night we decided to go back to our room early and do some drinking...turns out that was a bad idea all around. We were drinking jack and coke till we ran out of coke...then it was just the jack straight out of the bottle....which seemed like a good idea at the time. It produced hilarious results...three of us trying to swim in the pool with life vests on, me mysteriously flying up onto a car, getting locked out of the hotel room....This particular night during I never (pretty much my favorite game ever!) Jeff decided to say 'never have I ever had a thing for Andy' so I was faced with a choice...be honest and put my finger down or lie through my teeth. Lying for no good reason has never made sense to me, so I put my finger down. So the consensus of that is that Andy knows I like him now....but he has a gf in FL. Oh well.

Christmas- Christmas this year pretty much flew by, didnt it?! I got my wicked awesome camera and a trip to NYC with my sister for Beca's sweet sixteen. I plan on taking lots of videos...because...lets face it, me and my sisters are hilarious. OMG we got the evil stare from the priest during Christmas Eve mass, because the singing guy announced the song and it was about the donkey that took Mary to Bethlehem...which is cool and all except that in the car ride to church Makenzi started singing Dominic the Donkey (hee-haw!) and that prompted Beca to tease Lindsay about being the 'christmas ass' in the church pagent one year.... so when he announced that, my whole family lost it and burst out laughing.


So that is a recap of my last few weeks...Tomorrow is a basketball game to watch the girls cheerleading and then Sunday we leave for NYC!

Still havent seen Jon.....

Tuesday, December 2, 2008

So close!!


I am 9 days away from my Disney Christmas Vacation!

So I have to finish my social psych final, my corporate finance final and my french final! Sadly finals have become my life, so Ive done nothing. I haven't even watched a sabres game in a while. Sarah leaves on Saturday which means I have a whole week almost in the room by myself. I can not wait to be in Disney with Amanda again. I miss her tons!

Slowly losing my mind...

I have no right to complain...I am relatively healthy, no one close to me has died recently, and I am pursuing a promising career. Plus I chose to add the second degree and throw my life in to chaos. I want the job at Disney, I want a career in business...I just dont want to do all the work. That sounds lazy but its the truth.

I am currently taking 21 credit hours for school and work an average of 20 hours a week. I must be insane...it's the only logical answer to why I am killing myself. This semester I am taking:
Social psychology (my last psych class)
-I love this class. We have open discussions about everything so that we can relate it to our own lives, we have a mid-term and a final and weekly journals.

French 205 (my last french class!)
-French is bane of my existence. It was that way back in high school too. I can't seem to comprehend the language which is not good considering I HAVE to pass this class in order to fulfill my gen-ed requirement.

Anthropology of religion (CORE)
-Core is a pointless need of Meredith college to force us to participate in more broad classes. I hate gen ed. This class is taught by a woman with no comprehension of what her life is doing. She constantly changes assignments and does not tell us, she contradicts what she says but still expects perfection from us.

Corporate Finance
-I hate math, but that being said this class is alright. I'm not doing well but I'm not failing which I take as a sign of encouragement. I really like the professor and that always helps.

Training and Development
-I LOVE the teacher for this class, she makes everything so relate able. I know that after taking this class, training and development is not where I was to go in Human Resource. I find it dull and I don't like teaching people things.

Human Resource Management
-This has the same professor as Training and Development. This class is what I want to do with my life. I love it but it is difficult. The class has a lot of content that needs to be memorized and memory is not one of my strong points.

So there it is...my entire life laid out in black and white. I don't have time to have a life this semester...I've only gone out on one date and I haven't been to one single party. I'm not the partying kind, so I don't miss that. But I miss watching movies, being able to read a book, having time to be able to swim in the pool or simply having time to relax. When this is done, I will look back and know that I could conquer it but right now I seem as small as David and my work load is defiantly Goliath. All I can really do is pray that with God's help I can succeed and this is merely part of his plan for me.

My class over the winter are:
-Women's fitness
-Family and society
-Excel
-Access
-Intro to sociology

So my classes for spring semester are:
-Employee Relations
-Business Policy
-Compensation and Benefits
-HR Internship
-Jane Austen
-Organizational Behavior

Really?!

Ok so what I want to know is why a human resource major needs to take corporate finance in the first place! I mean, seriously, when am I ever going to need corporate finance?! I can not figure out what the point to stocks and bonds is...I mean why do I need to know how much interest will be on a bond in 10 years? Isnt that what accountants are for?

Disney is my goal. Everyone knows that but what I want to know is if killing myself this semester is really worth the wonderful-ness that goes with it.

I just need deep breaths and lots of prayers.

Why I am determined...

So in my sophomore year I declare a Psych major here at Meredith. That same year I also decided to go work for the Disney College Program. While I tried to get credit for going down, i ended up with none.

Now thats all fine and dandy except there are a few things I didn't count on while being down there: Meeting my best friend in the whole world. Wanting to move down there so I can play at the parks regularly (I should have seen that one coming). Adding my business major.

So now I am 2 semester away from graduation and I am 12 hours short of earning two degrees in business and psychology. My solution? Stress myself out more than possible by adding an additional 3 credits to my 18 hours. So I am taking 21 hours this semester. 6 hours over winter break and then another 21 hours in the spring. All just to graduate with two stupid degrees.

I'm not even sure it's worth it anymore...
