SLOOWWWW DOWWNNN!!

Hello Everyone,

Apologize for such scattered posts thus far, but I promise I will get more regular writing.. It’s tough, because social networking sometimes gets overwhelming..tweeting..facebooking..skyping..the list goes on..and sometimes, you just get burnt out, whos with me?

My life has been spinning 360 degrees, 180 miles an hour lately..sooo I’ve decided to slooww it doowwnn!

Learning a LOT about the PR profession, your phone must always be attached to your hip, you must ALWAYS have access to internet..and most certainly must just toss the watch out the window, because it’s a round the clock, baby!=) Not always, but..when a client needs something done, they NEED IT DONE NOW-and you will need to respond PRONTO..no if’s and’s or but’s about it. This is good though, I’m learning a lot of time management skills and attention to detail-nothing slips by in the professional realm, nothing ladies & gents-thats the way it should be too.

So, by the end of this week, I was fried. With school, internships & work-my body was saying SLOOWWW DOOWWNN!

Reflect: Do you ever get sooo wrapped up with your daily routine, that you forget to just live? just laugh?? and to just sit back and examine yourself..what makes you happy?? what are you doing because you think you have to?..and what are you doing because you want to??For me, whatever your passion is, you should chase after. For some people, it’s working with kids, for some people (like me) it’s pouring out your heart onto paper  or keepin’ up with the latest buzz, for some it’s dancing or cooking..others it’s firefighting..the list goes on.Everyone has a strength, everyone is good at some particular. You may not think so, but it’s true-everyone has a gift. So, I encourage you to just take a moment..and step back (WAY BACK) and examine yourself-what really makes your world go round?

So often, we get caught up in “worldly” standards, what the media tells us..or what “seems” right. Go to school, get a diploma..and get to work at a 9-5 job, you really can’t stand-but hey the pays great. Nah, no thanks. What I’ve been learning lately..as a college student these last 3 years..is what they DONT teach you in the books! To do what makes you happy. If you’re going to spend the rest of your life walking out the door dragging your feet with a strong cup of joe in hand, dreading where you are going-why is that worth it?

” I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live”-Ecclesiates 3:12

On a completely DIFFERENT NOTE, who saw those Academy Awards? Hurt Locker cleaned house!..and may I say, Sandra Bullock is so amazing & sooo talented-and deserved BEST ACTRESS in every way..! Also, congrats to the movie precious-I mean, being granted that title by OPRAH, has gotta be one BIG deal! You GO GIRL!

Goodnight to all..and to all a GOOD NIGHT!

Sip up your daily cup! (manana)

    Courtney,

    I personally enjoy the scattered structure of your post. It’s full of energy and kept me reading till the end. Pictures always add flavor and the random caps locks were attention-grabbers as well! I also like the personal spin you put in your post because it makes me feel more connected to it, so good work girl! =)
