Internship Progress

Okay so I’ve been putting in work with my internship! You can catch me walking up, down, all over the parking lots of different campuses posting flyers promoting my vlog page for ShortForm. I still have yet to obtain the minimum 50 viewers a week that I need, but I’m hopeful that it will happen soon. I’ve been twitting more, facebooking, and pinterest-ing things lol all around being more social networking inclined. It has become clear to me that marketing is not my strong point, I don’t have a passion for it; knowing that gets me one step closer to finding what it is I want to do with my life.

My To Do List!!

Steering away from all the stressors from the last post, I have some positive news to report…..I’m alive!! And that’s great news!! I’d rather be alive and have challenges than be dead with missed chances<< (dope, quote me =))

 Anyhow, I am not big on writing, check out my articles from my college newspaper stint But I can honestly say that I’m starting to love reading, so excuse me if I vlog more than I blog, but I will have lots of pictures on this blog. Thanks for stopping by, I should have more soon.

Graduation is just around the corner and I’m getting hit with so many things at once. Preparing to move out of my apartment and move in with my partner, senior projects, figuring out how to pay for graduation pictures(fortunately I purchase announcements earlier in the year when I had money), looking for employment, deciding when to launch my little business, pay bills and worrying if I have that the opportunity to even walk at graduation.

It became clear to me while writing this that the reoccurring factor in most of these issues is money. Wondering if I’ll have enough and worrying if the things I want to buy will be a waste of it. I currently have an on campus job that pays 10hr and I work a total of 5hrs a week!!lol I mainly use my checks to pay bills and purchase gas in my car, I never have more than $40 when the week is over so I just take what I have and put it towards my shirt idea. The positive factor of being a student athlete is the financial assistant you receive, fortunately this year I was awarded enough money to set aside to pay my rent for the semester. But, once I finish school, my job ends, I have been on a constant grind looking for jobs. I truly recommend the sites: CareerBuilder, monster, indeed, and tweetmyjobs, for individuals who are looking for employment across a broad range. I have one job prospect in mind but I’ll blog about it on the yt later =)

About Me

Ah yes, I finally decided to create a blog that I feel comfortable connecting my name to. A blog about career goals, my entrepreneurial venture, the final weeks of undergrad and a assortment of other things that I have decided to not get too perplexed about. More importantly, I want this blog to be interactive, I love telling stories but what I love even more is others input. I am the type of person to read an article online and then quickly scroll the comment section on the page and read how everyone feels, it gives me a chance to look at things from a different point of view. Since this blog is mainly informational, I welcome all information that you find that will be beneficial to this blog. Ha ha, I just realized this isn't a normal introduction so I'll just hope into the "normal" introduction. My name is (Dur-re-ah), 22y.o., 4 year scholarship NCAATrack&Field athelete, graduating with my B.A. in Communication in may, interning with two business and in business for myself. I'm currently looking for a career but I know things will come in due time.
