Stuff for class!

So for my class I had to create two magazines. I found out real quick that this is not what I want to do after college!!! People who do this for a living has to love there job because it dove me crazy trying to make these!!! The one with Lacey is the first one I made, and the one about Tech is the second one I made. It was fun but I am glad this part of the class is over with! It is a little to stressful for me!

The Sun is Shining!

Its a new day and waking up this morning I told myself that I am making sure no matter what happens today I will focus on my college work all day! I am happy to say that's what I have been doing all day, and I feel really good staying focus. Boy has it been hard though! As you can see from the picture the sun is shining and it is such a nice day. I have been wishing I was outside but I have a lot of homework and stuff to do for my future that needs to get done. As I said in my last post Barrett is in Cancun with his family so trying to stay focus today has been hard, because he has been texting me every chance he gets letting me know how much fun he is having. So today for school I went back Dr. Lee office to talk to him about this presentation that I am trying to get started on, it is over Uses and Gratificatons. I believe I am more lost after talking to him so I have a friend coming over after class tonight to show much what all he is wanting. I will be taking a trip to Spiro, Oklahoma to see my sister and her family this weekend. I am really looking forward to it. I am hoping while I am there to keep my focus on school and keep working on my presentation. On Tuesday I will be going to Channel 5 in Fort Smith to look around and to see if working in a news station will be right for me after graduation. I never thought my future would be so stressful. On my next blog I will be sure and inform you how Channel 5 went. I am really excited.
Until Next Time, Have A Good Day!

This Week in College!!

It has been a crazy week in college! I am just now getting caught up. This past weekend I went to Eureka Springs to spend Valentine's Day with Barrett and I painted for the first time in my life part of a picture, but my suit-mate does a lot of drawings so he helped me with his Valentines Gift (that's the picture shown). I thought we did really good. Since the snow last week I have had to get caught up on video and editing news packages for the Arkansas Tech Bookstore and also getting caught up on test in Dr. Lee Introduction to Telecommunication and Mass Communication Theory classes. I am so thankful that it is Wednesday and that this week is half way over. It has been a very hard week staying focus on college Barrett (my boyfriend) left today for a family vacation in Cancun for a week. So only talking to him for 2 minutes a day will be something to get use to. Hopefully starting tomorrow I will be back working on my resume and trying to find out what I want to do for my future and start focusing more on college rather then other things going on in my life.
Have a great day, until next time!

One Crazy Week!!!

It has been one crazy week in the life of Amber. Thursday night (2/4) I drove to Spiro, Oklahoma after class to spend a few days with my family because my sister daughter was in a high school basketball homecoming on Friday night. On Saturday my Parents went back to Houston and I drove to Eureka Springs to spend the rest of the weekend with my boyfriend and his family. On Sunday it was the Super Bowl and was it a party at the Featherstone’s house. It was a lot of fun. I was hoping to leave Monday morning to head back to Tech to start this week of school but little did I know waking up Monday that I would be snowed in and class would be called off at Tech. We had a really great time. We had a snowball fight and got to drive around the beautiful town. Waking up on Tuesday I was thinking the snow would be off the roads and it will be ok to drive back to Russellville but I could not get back car up there road because the ice was making it too hard for a girl like me to drive. So Tuesday one of Barrett’s friends has a Jeep and so he came and picked us up and we had a time playing in the snow with the Jeep. Then today I woke up thinking I will be going back to Tech if it takes everything I got. I did take everything I got to come back! After and hour and a half to clean the snow and ice off my car and four falls I was on the road headed back to Tech. Now seating in the dorm room needing to start preparing for tomorrows class and needing to start looking at what I will be doing and May with my future and finishing up my resume, but I can’t seem to make myself having fun seems way more important to me right now. Guess tomorrow afternoon will be back on the phone calling around trying to find out what the future holds in the life of Amber! Till I write again hope life is treating you well!

Last Semester of College

It is my last semester of college and I really did not think I was going to be this busy. This week has been one of the craziest weeks. I finally got my resume done and now trying to figure out what I want to do with my future. If you know me you know I stress out about everything, and my future is one of them. As a college student you know I do not have any money and I just live day by day just hoping that my car will make it till I find a job. Also just hoping I will find a job. Not many people know this but I am going Tuesday to Channel 5 in Fort Smith to see if I would like to work in a news station one day. I will be giving you an up date every week about how I am making it through my last semester of college! Have a great evening!!!
