Adventures of a PR student
I'm Not Crazy
bratpacker47
I was recently advised in one of my PR classes to start up a blog which would act as a potential writing sample. Needless to say that I already have a blog, but I wanted to start a new one to make it more centered on and relevant to my public relations major. So I figured, why not write what I know? Public relations from the perspective of a still-learning student.

I'm still writing the Examiner articles (the most recent one was posted yesterday and is about the upcoming Thanksgiving TV specials), but the blog will give me a bit more freedom about what I can write about. So the challenge that I welcome will be keeping up with both.

Feel free to take a look and leave some comment love. Also, if anybody has any suggestions on a topic for the blog OR an Examiner article, please feel free to share.

Stay Gold,

Walkout, Protest and March
Mediate
bratpacker47
Fresno State University held a walkout yesterday to protest fee increases, class cuts, graduation delays, faculty cuts, and a lack of student representation. And I attended. That's two things off my bucket-list: attend a protest and join a protest march.

It was really inspiring to see so many people gathered to stand up for themselves. Even more inspiring to see that some professors joined the protest in support of the students and to speak out about the cuts their departments have been suffering.

All in all, it was an amazing feeling. Great event.

Stay Gold,

New Article Up
I'm Not Crazy
bratpacker47
Thanks so much to anyone and everyone who has supported me with my Examiner articles. It's been a lot of fun and I think I've caught the writing bug. If anybody has any ideas for stories, I'm also very open to suggestions.

I have a new article posted right now that's about TV of the past versus TV of the future. I plan on doing this comparison again in the future, exploring various types of TV, such as news, variety shows, cop/crime shows, etc. This week's installment is GLBT themes and characters in TV past and TV present.

It's in honor of the 30th anniversary of the first march on Washington for gay rights, and October being GLBT history month. Feel free to check it out, comment, and subscribe!

Unfortunately the picture uploader isn't working right now so I'll have to let everyone know when the pictures finally load.

When it rains, it pours
Exhausted
bratpacker47
When I get busy, I get busy.

I've had some good opportunities arise, and all at the same time. So now, I am currently a full-time student, an intern with the Muscular Dystrophy Association, fulfilling service learning at the downtown library for my public relations class, gearing up to join TALK (the student run PR firm on campus), writing my first Fresno Television Examiner article to publish, and deciding about joining the organization committee for the 2010 Vintage Days festival on campus as part of the PR team.

I'm a little exhausted just talking about it. But today, I am going to try and finish my homework early so I can go with my brother to the movies for his birthday. And then to the fair so Rob and I can watch the Barenaked Ladies perform.

It's exhausting and tiring, but incredibly exciting.

Hope all is well,
~Ali
