Pop Culture in Twilight

This semester, I am in a popular culture class that digs deep into what we see as culture today. The class deals with movies, the web, television, and novels of all sorts.

It is very interesting to look into these different outlets of culture and really analyze what is going on with in them. For instance, we have been analyzing the Twilight series and how it portrays women in our society today. It shows women as mild, meek creatures that depend on men to save them. It also shows that for women to be happy, we need to get married and have children to feel fulfilled.

This is of course absolute crap due to the fact that women are becoming a dominate part of the work force. It is just a very interesting view, and it is very interesting to see the different ways to look into pop culture.

Job searching

I have been job searching for only a very short period of time, but I have come to find out that it is VERY exhausting! When I am looking for jobs, I am looking for ones that include public relations, social media, sports media, etc... The searches that come up for me are always internships! I wish for once, when I search, I could come up with real jobs instead of internships! Maybe there is something I am missing. Do I not know how to job search? These are things I am trying to figure out on this long road to a REAL job.

I am just scared I will not have a job right out of college. With most college grads not getting a job right out of college and some not even in the field they studied, it scares me.

I will just have to see what happens and go from there. I do not know what the future holds and I need to be open to whatever I can get.

Until next time...

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows= AMAZING!

So, as you may know, the final Harry Potter movies is finally coming out as a two part movie starting in two weeks! I am so excited for this for the fact that I am a huge Harry Potter fan. I guess you could say I am kind of a closet freak Harry Potter fan.

I guess my obsession started with Harry when I was in 7th grade, maybe younger...I am not sure. My friend Kelly got me into reading them, and when I did I could not stop. Something about them just made me go into another world. It was kind of nice at that age to go into another world, and just forget about everything around you.

The first book was good and the second got better. From there, they only got amazing! This last book that is now finally a movie, is by far the best movie that will be produced of all of the movies. The action and drama that will go into this is so huge, that it can not be put just into one movie!

I am re-reading the book right now, and just refreshing my mind with all of the information is getting me super excited! I know, this is weird, and kind of freakish, but at least I am not like my friend Karlisa! She is so crazy about Harry Potter, that she is dressing up for the movie, she owns a wand from the movie, she collects everything Harry Potter, and etc. It is kind of crazy how crazy she is for Harry.

That is all I have to write about right now. I just wanted to get my excitement out for Harry and the new movie that will be coming out at midnight November 19th! I can not wait! I will blog about the movie later when I have seen it

Fright Fest 10'

So, this past weekend I went to Ohio to go see my bff, and go to Fright Fest at Kings Island. Now, this is not just any ordinary fright fest. This is one where you ride rides alllllll day, then when the sun sets, the freaks and creeps crawl out of the wood work to scare and terrorize the guests of Kings Island. It really is a freaky experience, with many haunted house to satisfy your scaring needs.

First there are the 6 indoor haunted houses that there are to enjoy. The first one I went to was Pirate Cove. The name is explanatory as you can see. It was not very scary, but the pirates were funny to look at. The next was Wolf pack. This was a haunted house that had werewolves in it. This was kind of creepy, but not the best. We then proceeded to go to Massacre Manor, this creepy clown one where I got hit on by a midget clown who called me toots, then another one that obviously sucked because I do not remember the name of it.

Next, was the out door haunted houses, and these were the best, We went to the Terror-tory Train Ride where it was based on the wild west. It was good, but not the best. The best was the Trail of Haunted Tears. This was set back in the woods, and was filled with creepys all over! It has zombies, corn stalkers, crazy insane girls, and what I like to call "ground swippers." I made this name up as I saw it sliding towards me and it FREAKED me out. I almost kicked it.

The roller coasters were a hoot, and the food is of course never good and over priced. I would have to say I had a pretty good day at Kings Islands Fright Fest. What sucks now is I am exhausted, I have school tomorrow, and I ate so much fast food this weekend that I may turn into a Big Mac....FML! Owell, this kind of fun only comes once in a while, so live it up and seize the day! Carpe Diem!

WAIT! I remember the last indoor house! It was called Club Blood. This haunted house = gay. It had ghost strippers. Hell no to this...yup

I can not keep forgetting my blogs! SHITTTT

I am the worst at remembering to write these blogs! I have so much going on in my life, that these kind of take a back seat to the rest of my life. I know that is no excuse, but it really does fall close to last on my list of things to remember.

I am uninvolved in two internships, a double major, a sorority, many organizations and many volunteer organizations. One would say that this is my own fault for forgetting these blogs, and that no one is to blame but myself. This is very true. This is why I need to write more than 20 blogs. I am doing this to make up for the time I have not spent on blogs and the time I have spent on my other activities.

Time just seems to fly anymore though. I feel that every time I have free time, something comes up and I just become even more busy than what I was. I am always doing homework, school, activities, sorority crap. When will it ever be time for me to just relax and take a deep breath of fresh air for god sakes!

This weekend I will be taking a mini vacation to visit my best friend from Ohio, and I can not wait! This is going to be much needed time that is required for me to regain my sanity back from this hell I call school. Don't get me wrong, I love my friends, and classes, but the homework and the busy work is getting to me.

I have seriously bitched a lot in this blog. Sorry for this. As i stated in my last blog, this is just a nice way top let out my feelings and to vent a little. If I didn't have this to vent to, I would go mad. I don't really talk to my girlfriends about my craziness in my life and my problems. I don't trust them as far as I can throw them, and that is not far at all. LOL

Any who......That is my vent session. Kind of scatter brained, but hey it is a blog and I got my feeling out. A two for one deal!

More later.....blahhhh

Graduation .....come NOW!

I have come to the point in my life where I am positively, absolutely DONE with college! I am sick of homework, roommates, classes, and everything else that comes with this god forsaken life style.

I just want to get out into the real world, and start a job that keeps me stable with money, and give me a social life that is elegant, fun, and full of business! That is the kind of fun I am waiting for! 

I understand that one day I will miss it, and want to come back, but as of right now I am going out of my mind. Lets start off with school. I hate classes. I am so tired of having to write papers, do stupid two page papers on what I think is good business, OR putting on a campaign that sucks! I am not leaning anything right now I feel. I am learning in your class though, and it is the only class that is teaching me jack!

Next is my roommate. She is driving me bonkers I am sick of cleaning after her, listening to her talk loud, eat loud, drink loud. I am going to kill her in her sleep. I know it is mean , but I don't give a shit right now.

I plan on going to graduate school though, and I am curious if that will be anything like college? I know it will be harder, of course, but will it be like wild, retarded college. Who knows......I guess I will just have to find out when I get there.

I am also fed up with all of the guys that go to school. It is literally impossible to find a good looking guy who is not a horny, testosterone, jacked up asshole! Not that all college guys are like this, it is just all the ones I have met suck d*%k.

Alright. I am done venting for now, but I may be back with another blog to let out my stress and aggression. It is a good place to do just that!

Starry night, wonderful night...

Have you ever just look up at the stars and wondered what is out there in the great unknown? Have you ever wondered if there is life beyond what we know? These are just a few questions I ask my self when I stare up at that beautiful sky we have every night.
The stars are just so amazing, and it makes you wondering whats out there staring back at us. Wondering about us. Thinking about us.

When I went to Indianapolis a few months ago, I went to an IMAX theater and watched a movie on the Hubble telescope. It was just astonishing on how far away it could capture images and show what is to far for the human eye to even see. The other galaxies, nebula's, and planets out there are just amazing in every way, shape, and form.

I have always been interested in the solar system and everything in encompasses. The stars and the planets have always been a great mystery and I love the fact that we have these things out and about around us. When you think about it, it is kind of a hard thing to realize that we are not alone out there in this hug,vast solar system. It is fun and scary t o think about at the same time.

One day I hope that we have the power to travel far out into space and visit other planets. I am not one to believe in the "alien" hype, or UFO's, but I do believe we are not alone and that there is other life forms out there.

One day we will travel, and discover things that we could never imagine. We will be amazed and astonished, and when that moment comes, I hope to be alive and well to witness this remarkable feat.
