Thanksgiving is almost here!
November 13, 2012
I know I say this every blog but I cannot believe how fast this semester is going! It's crazy to think about it. It really does feel like yesterday I was beginning my final year at NU, now it's almost time for Thanksgiving!
The past two weeks have been jam-packed and I am imagining the rest of the semester to be the same way!
Halloween was fun! My roommates and I decided to carve pumpkins. Jen carved a Syracuse University pumpkin, Amy carved hearts, Taylor carved a cat, and I carved one big heart and wrote various words in sharpie.
Last week, I registered for my last semester as an undergrad. It was exciting but it also reminded me that I needed to begin the job hunting process. I have begun researching various opportunities but I still have to get my mind in that mode. My goal is to have a full-time job after graduation in May (even before then would be AMAZING too). My schedule for the spring semester is amazing and I am looking forward to beginning classes in January. Basically I am down to the core communication studies classes, so that is always fun!
I voted in my first presidential election last week. I drove back to Oakfield with my roommate Taylor. It felt awesome to have the chance to vote. My "I voted today" sticker is hanging on my bulletin board in my room now!
I am looking forward to Thanksgiving this year. I am thankful for so many things. The only thing missing this year will be my older sister Melissa and her family, they cannot make it to my house for dinner because of crazy work schedules, but Christmas is soon so it will be fun to see everyone then! I am really looking forward to my mom's cooking - she always makes enough food for my whole town! The holidays are about family and it will be great to spend some time at home with my parents.
With Thanksgiving comes the day after - "Black Friday." Every year, I go out shopping on Black Friday. Yes, I am one of those CRAZY shoppers. Many people choose to not go shopping at all during the week of Thanksgiving, I just have made it a sort of tradition. Last year my friend and I threw doorbuster items between the aisles to each other. I have no idea how this year will be, but I am looking forward to it!
This week, I am busy with classes and interning at my two internships. I am currently beginning a Pinterest page for the event planning company that I have been interning with since the summer. Pinterest is so interesting. If you are not on it, you should be. It is very addicting but super fun! You can pretty much pin various websites and interesting items to bulletin boards of your choice. It basically is a virtual bulletin board. Check it out sometime if you have the chance!
This week is also the Buffalo Sabres fall wine fest so I am volunteering my time at the arena for this amazing event.
That's pretty much it for this week! Have a great Thanksgiving, everyone! Talk to you soon!
