Je vais en France!!

Hey everyone. Long time no blog. Sorry.

So, here's what's going on in my life:

I had a hell-ish semester. Psycho roommate/ex-best friend(s), moving from dorm to dorm, etc. Happily, it's all over now. I leave for home (winter break) tomorrow. A little more Christmas shopping (just my mom left!), a few check-up appointments (doctors, hair, etc.), dogsitting, and most importantly, PREPARING FOR EUROPE!! Woo.

You read right! I'm going to Europe. January 6-18 I'll be in Europe for the first time! I'm going to Nice, France and London, England. What whattt. It's a school trip and like 30 others are going, and two professors. I'm taking the trip for credit, so it'll be fun. We get to see tons of performances and stuff. We're seeing Belle au Bois Dormant in Nice, holy crap! Close friends, like [roomie] Sarah, Cassie, and Kimyata are going. I know some others, too. But we're totally stoked. Ahh! And, btw, I think I'm going to meet up with actor Chris Rithin (see my earlier post on my feature article based on an interview I had with him)!!

I bought luggage today. Or, my mom did. But it's mine and it's pretty and perfectlyyyy sized. -Interuption- Some guy is totally whistling Deck the Halls in the hallway of my dorm. Just sayin'. -Back to Europe talk- So, I'm basically all packed clothes-wise, but I still gotta get my toiletries together and junk. But it shouldn't be too bad.

So, the point of this blog post wasn't to bore you about cute luggage, but to tell you to watch up for some blog updates and tonssss of pictures that I will post in some down-time (if there is any!) on the trip. And post-trip, you will DEF have tons of extras.

I'm considering even creating a travel blog. But I haven't decided. Sarah and I are considering doing a Vlog of it. Look out for it. :). I'll keep you posted. Hah, no pun intended.

So, I'm going to finish getting my stuff together. Love ya!

Une Note Parfaite!

I had to complete and present an online portfolio for my Publicity Methods class tonight. I did start the basics ahead of time and comepleted it this morning. The blog had to have all of our class assignments featured on it (as sample works that we have done, things like press releases, event itineraries, etc.). I also added my resume, some examples of my French work, feature stories, and other things on there.

I got a 75/75 on it! Woo! The only thing I was marked down for was a lack of professional color, but in the instructions she said to have the blog reflect our personalities, and I love pink and I'm a pretty bubbly happy person, so I thought the color reflected me. No worries though, I had enough extras on my blog that I still got a perfect grade. :).

Here's the link: Stacey's Online Portfolio.

Share it with people who are hiring!!!!! :)
