Fall Quarter- OSU

September 30, 2010

As this quarter is finally underway, I am starting to enjoy my classes. All my classes thisĀ  quarter have to do with my major, so they are more interesting and I am more motivated to actually want to learn and work hard on my projects this quarter.

In AgrComm 300, we are learning about design and why advertisements and such are the way they are. We will have to design logos, and other projects for this class, which will be perfect to put into our portfolios.

In Comm 422, I am working on my profile story. This summer one of my adviser mentioned that the construction on the agricultural administration building was done wrong and not up to code so they have to redo a lot of it. Ever since I heard about that I wondered why what happened, and was very curious to know more. When I got the assignment in this class to write a profile story on something that is happening I thought of this. I am in the process of contacting people to interview, and setting up a time for me to either meet with them or have a phone interview. I am also trying to find a meeting I would like to attend to get my meeting story underway and in the works so I don’t fall behind. All of our stories have a chance to be put into The Lantern, which is the University newspaper. I think this is very cool, and also a good opportunity to have something valuable to add to my portfolio.

In my other class AEDEcon 402, we are learning about marketing, and we were given an assignment to come up with a product that we will have to make a marketing plan and a paper about. We will have to market this product, and at the end of the quarter present it in front of the class, and our professer will send all of our ideas to the Department of Agriculture in hopes that some of our ideas will be used!

Over all, I think this quarter is off to a great start. I am looking forward to having more things to put in my portfolio.

Britney Spears appears on Glee

“I would like to be called an inspiration to people, not a role model – because I make mistakes like everybody else. When I’m offstage, I’m just like everybody else.” -Britney Spears- (http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/b/britney_spears.html)

I have just started watching the TV show Glee last week. Tonight was the episode starring Britney Spears. If you aren’t familiar with the show, it is about a high school glee or drama club and everything that happens with it. In every episode the glee club sings and dances to various songs. This week featured all Britney Spears top hits and Britney Spears herself even starred! While watching this show it made me remember the drama club in my own high school, which I was apart of for three years. It is a great show that proves the stereotypical drama geeks actually know how to have fun, and aren’t all that geeky.

Although Britney Spears has been through her rough patches, she still in my opinion is a prime example of what being in the spot light can do to you, whatever you think about Britney, you can’t deny that she has talent, unlike The Hills and Jersey Shore cast members that have gotten fame and fortune for doing pretty much nothing except start drama and go out and do stupid things.
