My first last day of school!

April 2, 2007

Like many before me, I have attended school for the last 16 years. It’s crazy to think that after only ten more weeks, I will never have to go back to school (unless I want to). That’s just nuts! A part of me is completely ready for the change, and another part of me isn’t so certain it wants to leave the University of Oregon. One thing I do know with every fiber in my body is that I do NOT want to work at McDonald’s after graduating like a girl in my class said she wouldn’t mind doing (I’m hoping she was kidding).

I feel bad for people who go to college and shell out all that money only to graduate and wind up in a dead end job. I don’t want that to be me. I want to use my degree. The only issue is how many choices I have within the Public Relations industry. I could go into entertainment, sports, technology, fashion and basically ANYTHING else. If I could choose anything I wanted though, I would probably choose to do PR for a company like Betsey Johnson.

At a company like hers I feel I could be creative and comfortable in my own skin. She’s definitely quirky, and I think I would like that in boss (although I could be wrong). However, let me backpedal for a moment. By me declaring my interest in a slightly less mainstream company, that does not mean I wouldn’t find happiness somewhere else. I do well with mainstream, I just tend to lean a little away from it. Hahaha, if you met my family though, you might better understand where some of my own uniqueness comes from. Plus, I’m an only girl so my mom used to spoil me a little with Betsey Johnson dresses : ) Thanks, mom!

Anyway, I got kind of lost with this post (it is the first day of school). However, if you’re reading this Ms. Johnson, I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to come work for you!
