Today is the beginning of my final exams, so I’m going to try really hard to avoid the internet in an attempt to be a good student. My goal for the month of April was to procrastinate less and do more daily studying and although I somewhat succeeded, I think mostly I haven’t. Luckily I’ve still got another exam to turn this around for, and that all starts today.
Before I head off and study/cram for my exam this evening, I thought I’d share a few random things about life:
1- I’ve finally updated some of the pages on my blog: About Me, Blog Roll, and the addition of my Sponsor Info page. I’m most excited about that one as I’m hoping to add more of your lovely blog buttons to my sidebar as sponsors, as well as (hopefully) work with more companies for my writing. I’ve had a ton of fun doing it spontaneously in the past, and want to do it a little more seriously from now on! We’ll see what happens.
In any case, if you decide not to check my Sponsor Info page I’ll just tell you RIGHT here that I am offering free ad space on my sidebar for your blog button! All you have to do is put my blog button on your sidebar, and we’re set to go! You can e-mail me or leave a comment if you’re interested.
2- I am EXTREMELY excited for summer. As of April 24th, I am FREE!
3- I’m also very excited for April 22nd (next Sunday) because I have a pair of tickets for Cirque du Soleil AMALUNA in Montreal. I bought the tickets for my mom for her birthday in February, and we’ve both been counting down the days as it approaches!
4- Every time summer gets closer, I find myself falling into the trap of those really catchy, summery songs on the radio. Here is my guilty pleasure playlist lately:
+Starships by Nicki Minaj
+Feel so Close by Calvin Harris
+Wild Ones by Flo Rida feat. Sia
+Part of Me by Katy Perry
+Summer Paradise by Simple Plan feat. Sean Paul
+What Makes You Beautiful by One Direction (I KNOW GUYS. IT’S JUST SO CATCHY)
+Give Your Heart a Break by Demi Lovato
Okay I’m done, I swear. That is the weirdest music I’ve ever written about around here. What can I say? Sometimes a song is just TOO catchy. I’ll make up for it with some good music next week, I promise.
5- If you follow me on Twitter, you may have caught my vague tweets about an interview for a job last week. On Friday I was officially confirmed and I got it! I thought I would talk about it briefly now as it will probably come up a lot more in the coming year. The position is for a major organization at my University. Basically, we choose a charity, organize an event, and raise a ridiculous amount of money for that charity. I got the position of VP Public Relations, which basically means I’ll be taking care of writing all the media/press releases and helping with some of the promotional aspects of the events. I’m really excited to be volunteering my extra time for charities, and I’m even MORE excited to see what fun things we plan this year! You can follow along on the organization’s Twitter right here, and find out more about the charities we’ll be giving back to in the coming school year.
That’s all I’ve got for now! Just a little update on life in general. It’s really been all school, work, school, work around here, but that’s always what April is about what with finals and summer and other fun things.
What’s going on with you today?!
