Up and Down and Up and Down
Life has been loopy in the college student's life. It's up and down and up and down. I got to watch my boyfriend graduate from Montclair State on Friday. That's an up! The next day, the power was shut off at my house. It took two days to get it back. That's a down. Then I get offered more hours at work. That's an up! I got my power and internet back on Memorial Day. Another up! My internet isn't working at home so I have to head over to Starbucks to upload my homework, which was a one and a half late. That's a down.
Other than the trials and tribulations of power and electric corporations, my classes have been pretty interesting. Advertising and Marketing has been opening my eyes on the competitive sides of plain old commercials. It's really interesting to know what intentions are behind the messages given out. Also, I feel it has made me a smarter consumer. I pay more attention to true value of products without having their catchphrases getting in the way.
My internship has been fun too. I get to be a big part in planning out the marketing blitz for a new up and coming musical artist! How cool is that? I'm not too sure how much I can talk about the plans but I know I can mention his name. His name is Ziggy Rankin and he's a nice guy with a crazy TOUGH voice. Haha.
Happy week 8 everyone!
