Why I am Thankful I Chose a Communication Major

Last week I discussed my process of changing my major throughout the past few years. Next weekend I will be walking the stage with a bachelor’s in communication and think it is crazy that I am FINALLY at this point in my life. Communication was my last choice, as we saw last week, and I was not always happy with my degree choice, but there are a few reasons why I am thankful to have studied communication.

My Process on Deciding on my Major

It’s one of the most asked questions when discussing college: “What is your major?” I changed my major so many times throughout the past few years and have had countless ideas of what I wanted to pursue. Honestly, sometimes moving from one idea to another did not make any sense. Because I think my process on coming to the conclusion of majoring in communication was no where near normal, I decided I would share it with y’all!

6 Ways to Prepare for a New Semester

Last week I began my last semester of undergrad. I honestly thought this day would never come and that the insane amount of essays I have to write would never begin to grow smaller and smaller. With each semester, for me, means getting everything organized and put together to make sure that I stay on track throughout the next few months. Most people like to discuss “back to school” issues in August, but everyone goes back to school in January, too, so I thought it would be fun to explain how I have made it through the past three and a half years.

Turkey. Dressing. Cranberry sauce. Broccoli and rice casserole. Homemade rolls. PUMPKIN PIE! Y’all, it’s that time. Now, I really do love the food on Thanksgiving, but I always seem to forget the reason we celebrate it. I get so caught up in arranging my plate to fit the most food possible, that I forget to think about all the things I have in my life that are absolutely amazing. Because of that, I wanted to actually sit and think about the wonderful things I have been given. As many people do this time of year, I decided to talk about some of the things I am thankful for.

Juggling Life, Work & School

When I tell people I work 40 hours a week, have a small part-time job and also take around 15 hours in school a semester, I typically get the response, “Wow! You have a lot on your plate. How are you able to get everything done when it needs to be done?” There are times when I cry like a baby struggle, but I do have help to get me through the busy school year while juggling work, bills and other “adult” things. I put together a list of items that can help any person who juggles multiple things at once in their day-to-day life!

Ways to Reset for the Week

Every Sunday I have a list of things I have to get done before I can go to bed that night. I do these things because it helps me to “reset” and set my focus on the week ahead. This is very important to me because it helps me to remember that the past week is just that-in the past. I tend to worry about the past and what I did not get done throughout the week and when I do this, it takes away from the moments in the upcoming week. I also think this helps me to clear my mind and prepare for the week and everything that will fill my head in the next seven days.

Reasons I am Glad I Stayed in my Hometown for College

A few weeks ago I wrote about certain reason I wish I had gone to off for college. I begin my senior year of college in a week and a half and it is crazy for me to think that I graduate in 9 months. During my senior year of high school, I decided to stay in my hometown for at least a year for several reasons. When I completed my first year I decided I was going to go off and go to school at Texas Tech University. Well… I ended up still staying in my hometown and will discuss reasons why below, but as I stated in my previous post, there are reasons I really wish I had gone off and you can read that here. Even though I missed out on certain experiences, I still have had some amazing experiences that I would not have if I moved away.
