It’s hard to believe, but in just 11 short days, I will be moving into my new home at Ball State. Never has a year gone by so fast as it has in the past one, and I can only hope that time slows down a little bit for me in the future. Nevertheless, I am absolutely ecstatic about my future, and to find out what all God has in store for me.
To begin, I am very excited to be majoring in Public Relations, with a minor in Campaign Communications. While I am not quite sure exactly what field I would like to be a part of in the future, I do know that there are a number of different internships I would like to apply for as an upperclassmen–including ones at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and at different country music labels in Nashville. In the meanwhile, I am very fortunate that Ball State has their own student-run PR and Advertising firm on campus–Cardinal Communications–which I hope to be able to join this year in an entry-level position.
Besides Cardinal Communications, there are also a few different organizations I hope to be a part of. First, I look forward to participating in Rush Week and hopefully joining one of the many different sororities on campus. Being a part of Greek Life has been something I’ve been looking forward to for a long time now, and I can’t wait to see what awesome opportunities come along with being a part of a sisterhood.
Secondly, I am planning on joining one of the many different committees for Ball State University Dance Marathon (BSUDM). As a two-year VP of HSE’s Dance Marathon, I can’t wait to move to a whole different DM scale and see what opportunities will lie there. For quite a few years now, I have been very passionate about Riley Children’s Hospital, a passion that I believe will follow me throughout my lifetime.
And lastly, I am so excited that I will be taking part in Excellence In Leadership, a 2-year for-credit leadership program. The program includes leadership seminars, lessons, guest speakers, and leadership retreats–all things that I believe will benefit me greatly in the future.
I also hope to find a church on campus that is the perfect for myself, something that I’m really excited about. And although I’ve essentially held some sort of job since 8th grade when I started working at Billericay Baseball Concession Stands (and two jobs last summer, and part of this summer) I think I have come to the conclusion to not have a job on campus first semester. I’ll still be able to come home and work at Target on breaks. So, if I find that I have enough time, I will look for a job second semester. And if not, I have enough money saved up for this upcoming school year from my job as a nanny this summer.
Finally, I want to thank everyone who’s been reading and keeping up with my blog these past 6 months :) I will continue to post while at Ball State and keep everyone updated with my life–as well as posts about faith, relationships, and everything else I like to ramble on about. Thank you!
