Life as I know it.

Life is changing for me. It's weird all the new things that are going on in my life right now. Since school is done and I am available for jobs I keep thinking about my future. Now, I always have thought about my future plans, long term and short term. Move out, get a car, adopt a puppy :). Although these things cant happen without a job. Still looking, but interviews are coming, very slowly. My friends tell me it's only a matter of time.
After this alotted amount of time passes I can't wait to move out, get a car and yes get a puppy! it's probably what I'm most excited about.

PostSecret.com

I know it's not a new site, but I can't help but expressing about how great it is.

Postsecret.com

If you haven't heard of it I'll tell you. Its a weekly blog where Frank, the creator of postsecret, asks people to send him postcards to him with secrets on it. He will then take the post cards, organize them and post them onto the weekly blog every Sunday. There are disturbing, passionate, depressing and very inspiring secrets that are posted. Every week I like to take a look at them when I feel that I need a little bit of inspiration, or need a good cry. There is always one or two that will do either of those, or both.
Here are a few of my favorites.

writing about the end.... again....

The first week of my second work placement is coming to a close today. I must say it feels good to be doing some 'real work'. Although it wouldn't feel as good as getting my first job in my career. I don't know how many places I have submitted my resume, but lets not talk about that before I get too depressed. :( haha

For the first couple of days I think I was going through what you could call CreComm withdrawl... combined with my boyfriend leaving on a tour for three weeks right at the same time didn't help either.
I was really sad and felt quite lonely the first day of placement. It was a huge change from the hustle and bustle of constantly working and being around all of my classmates. Knowing that i may not see everyone again in the near future also makes my heart a little heavy. I have really made strong connections with so many people and I hope that soon(other than grad) we can all get together and reminise about out CreComm days.
Also good luck to everyone who is still job hunting. I'm in the hunt with you, here's hoping for not too long!

Love you all!

The end.

So I am officially done classes, handed in my last assignment and I am now on the last step of my CreComm journey. Work Placement.
It's weird to think that I won't be able to see all the people I have grown to love in the past two years every day.
As we all spend the next three weeks either in a cubicle, or running around like crazy interns I know we will miss everyone else and the company and support that we have for one another.
I know I miss it already and it's only day three of work placement. One of the people working at my work placement is a CreComm alumni and he said that it's normal and mostly every CreComm goes through some form of CreComm withdrawl. Either it's sadness and wanting everyone to come back or the opposite where you want nothing to do with them for a long time. In any case I am on the sad side. I even woke up today thiking I'll be going to class today and get to see all my friends, but to my dismay I am just going to work placement in my little office, at least I have an office! :)

Good PR

I love hockey. Even though I play Ringette I still love hockey. Which means I love watching live hockey as well. For years I have been going with my parents, friends and most recently my boyfriend to the Manitoba Moose games. Every time I have seen all the different things that go on during live hockey to interact with the fans. The fan of the game, Timbits at the breaks, games, and of course the Kiss cam. As corny as it seems I have always secretly wanted to be on the kiss cam... I came close once when with my cousin Kelsey. (the couple next to us were on the kiss cam) She turned to me after saying "that's the closest I'll ever be to getting on the kiss cam"- referring to her single status. I thought about it and realized that the chances of myself being on the kiss cam were very slim as well.
My boyfriend isn't really the hockey type, he says that he feels shunned from his Canadian status at times because of his lack of enthusiasm for he sport. This is probably why we have only been to one hockey game together, which was our first date. So it was probably him just agreeing because he was just being nice... or had other motives. Never-the-less, we went to another hockey game two nights ago, after two years of not going to one together.
Ultimately we ended up on the kiss cam! (like you couldn't see that coming in this story! haha) But here's the best part, we won for best kiss! yay!
It was a really cute experience because of the group around us obviously cheered us on just because we were in the same general area than the other "competitors". It also made the Moose game even more special than just a bit of time spent with him.

So I just want to say that even if it is one of the cheesy and common practices in sports to do during a live game, it is a great PR practice because it made someones good night even better!
