Huge Service Announcement

For all of this semester thus far I have been struggling with the unknown fact of whether I could graduate on time, and thank God I can. Phew. I found myself eating worse and breaking out into, oh so beautiful, zits on my face. From all the stress I found the bags under my eyes a usual look when I saw my reflection every morning. This stress was unbearable considering I was not sure on my graduation date.

Now, on a different note...where will I end up after graduation? I know we're all thinking it. Don't lie. I know we are. It is the huge question mark engraved into our brains; what job am I going to get? Or, will I even get a job? Or, am I willing to travel? Now, speaking of traveling...damn do I want to travel around the world. I always considered jobs positions that enabled me to travel, but I just still didn't know what I wanted to do. I switched my ideas on what I wanted to do more than I switched outfits in a day (and trust me, I wear a whole weeks worth of clothes in one day, seriously). When I was really little I always wanted to be an actress. I mean can you blame me? I wanted to be just like those Disney Channel stars. You know, like That's So Raven and Phil of the Future and (pre-crazy, awesome, however you want to put it) Miley Cyrus in Hannah Montana. I can just remember watching the Disney Channel Original Movie every. single. night. at 8 o'clock. My dad would storm into my room yelling at me for not doing my book report. Ah. Good times.

I swear I have a point for going down memory lane.

So, here it is. It's that I started off wanting to something insanely unrealistic. As you get older you start to get more realistic on your choices. From there, I wanted to be a Photographer. I couldn't tell you why because I learned at an early age that, dear God, I am a shitty artist. And yes, even in taking pictures. I knew right from when I painted flowers in 8th grade art class and everyone thought they were lollipops (and yes I still have that painting) that the arts were simply not the right path for me.

By the time I reached high school I found a love for Biology and Criminology. I know it sounds weird, but Criminology fascinated me. I thought it was so interesting; I'm not weird. It was interesting learning about it, and you know why? Because it was unusual. Now here I go on a whole new rant. Unusual is what interests people and that is the truth. This applies in education, movies, and even in Journalism. Unusual gets the top stories, and that's the messed up truth. Going off of that, I wanted to pursue in either Biology or Criminology. I still don't know to this day why I just let Criminology float away, but that just faded from my interest by the time I went to school. My best guess is the only school that offered that majored that I applied was out in bumblefuck Virginia. I can't hang there. I just can't. I also just did not wanted to work in a research lab for Biology, so there's that.

Anyways, going into school I was Undeclared. Still having no clue on what the hell I was going to do. I decided I wanted to help Special Needs kids so I went to education. I majored in middle school level (I think, I switched a lot). I realized after a few semesters in education that it wasn't what I wanted to do. It just wasn't my passion I guess. That's when I finally realized a year ago that I would major in Communication Studies. That was the greatest decision I ever made, because I have infinite options I can do with that degree. 

I apologize for the incredibly excessive post for today, but there you go. That's how I ended up in the career path I am today. Main point being that as long as you like what you do, then you will find your way. I have no clue what I am doing after school, but I am at peace with that because at least I know I'll love what I will be doing in the future. 

And I'll leave you with this precious picture of two puppies.

Can't ignore the classics.

I love The Beatles. From Love me Do to I am the Walrus to Let it Be I could listen to them all day. Or even from Across the Universe, which includes music from The Beatles. How incredible that movie is amazes me. I even find myself listening to their versions of The Beatles songs (sshh).

If you're unaware of what that movie is, I'll give you a quick summary. Basically, a man named Jude moves to America during the Vietnam War where he meets Lucy. That's all you need to know. There's lot of fun and chaos in between.

The Beatles are forever #1 of classics.

It really (in Peter Griffin's words) grinds my gears when drivers don't put their turn signals on. Like, come on. What brought on this sudden anger is when I was driving home yesterday someone didn't use their turn signal and it drove me nuts. I mean here I am just driving along a busy road behind this car who, ALL OF A SUDDEN, just slows down super fast. I'm thinking, what the hell is going on here? Then, he just turns. LIKE OKAY. Thank you for letting me know buddy. 

I just get so frustrated with this because it's super dangerous to other drivers. I just would like to not get into an accident because someone fails to take two seconds to put their signals on. 

Oh, and my favorite is when the turning signal is left on for 10 miles. Woo that's a hoot.

Point being, here's some advice: Please use your turning signals, and when you do dear God please remember to turn it off because it is so annoying watching your light blink on and off for an hour. 

Here's a link to learn how to use a turning signal if anyone ever gets confuzzled.

Good morning, my name is Mackenna (or Princess Mac, or Master of the Universe; either way). To start off I want to introduce myself a little bit to see what will be expected throughout these next couple, few, several, TONS of posts here on out.

First of all, I'd like to just point out first that I am a Senior in college and I am 21 years old. I major in Communication Studies and minor in both Public Relations and Professional Writing. I am all about being fit and (sometimes) being social. I love long walks on the beach and cuddling and blah blah blah. What's most important is that I am a white girl in college. 

I'll answer all the questions you're thinking:

  • Yes, I love Starbucks (or Starbz)
  • Yes, I wear leggings.
  • Yes, I own North Face.
  • Yes, I have Uggs...although they are ripped up and from 9th grade in high school...hey! I ain't rich.
  • Yes, I love Instagram and I Tweet incredibly intellectual, philosophical Tweets (obvi).
  • Oh, and I say things like LOL and I abbreviate everything I say.
  • and yes, CHIPOTLE IS MY LIFE.
  • I read all of the Twilight judgment.
  • I say "like" a lot. (Don't worry not when I am being professional (; )

Although I have incredibly typical white girl qualities...I still am my own person. There will be more various posts involving all types of things. I just write what I want. 

But there's the beginning. Here we go!
