I'm still here

Wow. Time has flown. I really didn't realize it had been a MONTH since I last blogged. My bad.

And I'm not really sure why. Part of it is a week of that month I was gone down to Florida for Spring Break with no internet access, so that was a problem and then when I got back I kind of had to hit the ground running with school and all that fun stuff and so really, blogging became the last thing on my mind. That, and I'm doing my best to actually blog about legitimate things, not just ramble on about my life and I couldn't think of anything legit to talk about, so I didn't blog and now it's been over a month and I feel guilty, so I'm blogging.

But anyways.

I've finally started the big kid job search. I've decided that I would ultimately like to stay in Des Moines and find a job and work, and am now planning on camp as my back up plan in case I don't find anything.

As far as jobs, I'm still thinking events and PR, but would also love something in social media, either as a consultant or analyst at a social media consulting firm. OR, as a social media person for an individual company itself. So, I've been looking and talking and trying to get advice from people who are currently in the field to see where I should be looking and what I should be doing.

It's kind of exciting. I'm finally ready to actually grow up and graduate. Yes, I'm definitely going to miss my friends and some of the perks that go with college. But I'm looking forward to living in a real house or apartment, having a normal job, grocery shopping, and actual free time. It'll be nice to not have to worry about homework or making sure I make it to all 20 of my meetings every week.

I suppose my biggest worry though right now with job hunting, besides actually finding a job. Is trying to find one that 1) I'm going to enjoy and 2) making sure I'm good at it. I'm slightly scared that I'll find a job and take it and then turn around and suck at it and then I won't enjoy it and I'll be in trouble. But I guess we'll see.

But that's it for now.
