If you are reading this, thank you for giving my blog a chance! I have never done anything like this before so this is a learning experience for both of us. I am a senior in college and I am looking into building a career for myself. I am majoring in Public Relations and minoring in Marketing. After researching PR, I have realized that I need to write more often. In turn, I created this blog.
A little bit about me, or a lot
I am a senior at Grace College. I work in the Human Resources office there and at TJ Maxx. I am a full time student, work sixteen to twenty hours a week, involved in theatre and still have time to watch my favorite shows on Netflix and Hulu. I am a Christian and I believe that God should be a huge part of everyone’s lives. It is a struggle to always listen to God and follow His plans for me; however, through the last six months, I feel closer to Him and His plans for my life.
I am a huge movie and musical fan. I personal own about 70 movies, have performed in 6 musicals and have seen at least 15 or more musicals live. I danced for fourteen years, ballet, tap, jazz, musical theatre, modern, lyrical, and ballroom. I wish I had more time to dance now, but with my crazy schedule, I barely have time for sleep. I also took seven years of voice lessons and have sung many different music styles. One of my favorites was Ave Maria; it is a beautiful song and it was a perfect range for my voice. I have also done choir and show choir. I love singing and dancing with a group; it is so much fun. I have been able to choreograph several songs and parts of shows. Two of my favorites have been choreographing most of the show Zombie Prom, a college production, and my senior year dance recital piece. Zombie Prom was a blast and I got to do several different styles of dance. Mostly show choiry moves, but it was still a blast. My senior dance recital was my ultimate favorite though. I danced to “Cinderella” by Steven Curtis Chapman and it still gives me chills thinking about it. I had tons of people come up to me and say they cried because it was so beautiful. I loved dancing to that song because of the meaning in it and that I got to do my own choreo.
I am a huge coffee fan. I love going to small town coffee shops and trying their coffee out. I am definitely not a black coffee drinker, but I try my best to expand my palate. I also love drinking tea. I know that is weird to like tea and coffee, for most people it is one or the other. I; however, love both. I enjoy sweet tea the most though. It just makes me want to ride in a truck down country roads jamming out to Sam Hunt.
I am also a huge foodie. I love eating and it might be a problem at some points. My body thinks that I am hungry all the time, but that is not the case. My favorite foods are pasta, steak, and salmon. I love all kinds of pasta; I do not think I have a favorite. Steak is my favorite type of meat besides burgers. I am definitely not the kind of girl to order a salad on a date. Salmon is the best fish ever; it is so good when prepared correctly. I have had salmon prepared several ways; however, my favorite is with lobster butter and a side of asparagus. My least favorite is smoked salmon; this means it is raw, which I did not know at the time. It is okay in sushi, but not by itself. My two favorite desserts are ice cream and peach pie. My philosophy on ice cream is there is always room for it. It is the perfect end to a delicious meal or as a late night snack. I love Ben and Jerry’s, but I also have found out I love lemon ice cream. I never thought that I would like it, but it is very good. Peach pie is my favorite. My mom makes the best peach pie; my mouth is watering just thinking about it. Al a mode peach pie puts my two favorite desserts into one extraordinary dessert. I highly recommend it.
When I was deciding on a major, my mom said I would do well in Public Relations. I had no idea what that was, but I decided if my mom thought I should do it, I was going to do it. After my first communications class, I know that my mom was right. I love people, and helping people accomplish their goals. As I am looking toward graduation, I am realizing how excited I am about a future in PR or marketing. Everyone you to pick something that you love to do and work will be fun. They were right. Choosing to go into the world of PR was the perfect choice for me. I am looking for a career in PR, Marketing, or Advertising. I am interested in the Nashville or Atlanta area. My dream job would be to be a PR executive in the music industry. As you read above, I have a lengthy background in music and it has and always will be a passion of mine. I am a small town girl and I love the idea of living in the South.
I do not know what this blog with always be about, but I know what it might contain. If you love movies, TV shows, Jesus, real life lessons, musicals, traveling, books, Nicholas Sparks, and or the South, you will most likely enjoy this blog. I know I have a busy schedule, but I will try to post every so often. If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or prayer requests, feel free to comment or email me.

Until next time my sweet peaches,
