It Only Took Me Until My Senior Year... fully embarrass myself more than I have in years.

Even more so than the time I ran into the post in the middle of the Food Lion and knocked myself out so hard my bracelet flew off my arm and I laid in the middle of the grocery store floor until my parents found me.

Even more so than the last days of both fifth and sixth grades when I sat on chocolate icing and boys asked me if I had "stuff" on my pants.

Yesterday, I presented my senior PR campaign to our client, the communication studies major. I normally feel like I am a pretty well spoken public speaker, but after yesterday I may need to reevaluate. Our campaign included a progressive and new idea, that unfortunately brought on a lot of scrutiny from our client.
While I attempted to respond to a very negative question, I reached down and felt my dress. Low and behold, I realized my dress was inside out.

 So I am standing there, in an inside out dress, in front of my class of slack-jawed students, while being interrogated by the head of the department. And I completely lose my train of thought. Absolutely nothing was in my brain. And of course, my face looks bizarre and everyone gives me more weird looks because I can't speak.

Great way to finish out the year...thank goodness I already have a job, as after this, my mother may have had to come and check that I was appropriately dressed for the interview!

Starting Out With a New Blog

I'm not exactly new to the blogging world. My mother first introduced me to blogging after her success at Southern Somedays. I started my first blog towards the end of my senior year and high school. While I enjoyed it greatly, the busy season definitely set in with Rush and my first semester of classes and I got a little side tracked. Then I was forced to blog in my communications classes, and that unfortunately seemed to sap any creativity from me.
      Now that I am about to graduate from Georgia Southern University with a degree in Public Relations (in three years, too!), I've rediscovered my writing side thanks to the multitude of excitements that have been coming my way in recent months. I've accepted the position of Director of Admissions, Marketing, and Public Relations for North Georgia Christian School in Flowery Branch, Ga., and will be relocating back to Hall County at the end of May. I attended NGC for the majority of my school career, so I am thrilled to be returning to such a sweet family.
     I will be moving in to an adorable apartment that I can't wait to decorate, and will be only 45 minutes from both sets of grandparents. This is a particular blessing as my parents will be moving to Edenton, NC., at the end of June. Of course, I am terribly distracted from finishing school at the moment with all of the planning that has taken over! All I want to do is paint furniture and buy lamps, which unfortunately is not exactly a conducive environment for writing four papers...
     I'm excited to be starting a new blog. I've rediscovered my creativity and can't wait to share it with the world. I'm excited to be starting a new career at a new (again) place. And ultimately, I'm excited to be Starting Out Southern.
