Please Don’t Hate Me

on December 4, 2012

I would just like to take this moment to let you all know about the YouTube account that I have. I feel like I’m fishing for views, but I feel like I should advertise my videos on my blog as well. I mean, do people expect me not to do that? Don’t answer that question.

My vlog (“video blog”) is really pointless. I talk about a few things that are going on in my life and about things that I find interesting. I have two videos up, so far, of me singing. So, if you are interested, please take a look at my YouTube and tell me what you think! I would love for some feedback, so that I can make my vlog better. 🙂

So, what else is going on in my life? It’s dwindling down to the last two weeks of school. The semester has gone by so fast and I am really glad that I have been able to study here at St. Edward’s University. It is definitely the best thing that has happened to me. I’ve learned so much, made a lot of good friends, and been able to partake in amazing opportunities (I’m sure you’re thinking nobody uses the word ‘partake’? Well, I just did. 😉 )

I am not particularly stressed with finals. I have two exams this week for my French and Principle of Marketing classes. They are just normal exams. I have to turn in a final essay for American Dilemmas, cumulative test for Pre-Calculus (not my favorite class!), and a presentation for my Business Communications class. This semester we did a consulting project for the Career Services on campus and it is finally time to reveal the data and results to them. Oh, and I’ve got a party for a final in Omnisingers. That’ll be fun.

I think I’m the most concerned about American Dilemmas and speaking for the presentation in Business Communications. I have a feeling like I might be getting a B for Dilemmas. I am fine with B’s for sure, but I would just rather get A’s. I am sure there are a lot of people that have the same exact feelings when it comes to grades. The main reason for my concern with the presentation is because I get extremely nervous when I am in front of people. I don’t feel like I am a good speaker (and I’m not) and I hate my voice. These two thoughts just really make me feel bad about speaking in front of large groups. I have been in positions where I was needed to speak in front of audiences before, so I am sure that I will do okay. But that initial fear is not something that I am fond of.

Wednesday is my last “final”, or rather, it’s the day of the presentation. This is the last thing that I will have to do for the semester. That means I have to be out of my residence hall within 24 hours of the last exam. So, within a week and a half, I will be back home! I am really excited to be home for the winter break. It will be a nice, little vacation from school. However, I would really like to find a place to work over the break. I need to earning money for textbooks for next semester – because I found out that my textbooks are going to be extremely expensive. Big surprise, huh? (Hope you can read the sarcasm right there). I’d also like a job so I can start earning up money for loans and Christmas presents for others and for next semester and for life. Maybe I am dreaming too big, but a girl can wish, right?
