A Good Day for Social Networking

Have you ever had one of those days where you were just so into something, that 4-5 hours flew by and you had no idea?! That's what just happened to me now.

But, it was a very productive social networking day. I updated by blog, website, resume, and my newest creation: my VisualCV online resume! Anyone can make one at www.VisualCV.com and I highly recommend it. It allows for potential employers to find your resume online and have easy access to all your information.

Here are all the things I have updated today:

My Last Semester

This week has been pretty interesting.

I officially registered for classes for my last semester here, at University of Wisconsin- Whitewater!! It feels so strange to say it, but I won't believe I'm done with school till I'm at graduation. Or maybe it will hit when the end of the "summer" comes and I won't have anywhere to get back to.

It is very exciting though. I'll have a Bachelor's Degree in Business Management, a minor in Public Relations, and an emphasis in Special Events Management. The best part about finishing school is... THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS!!

I do realize I'll be in the "real world," but I'm excited for whatever the world has to throw at me! I am currently working on a couple web-pages and online resumes. Over Thanksgiving Break, I can't wait to start creating more for my mom's diabetes education classes. My mom, Theresa Daciolas, is an RN and CDE who works at St. Alexius Medical Center. I can say, HANDS DOWN, she's one of the most knowledgeable and personable people I know.

Below is a picture of my dad, me, and my mom at watching tennis in Cincinnati, 2009!

It's official. I think I'm obsessed with Twitter.

I just learned how to fully utilize it and it's AWESOME!! It also helps that I can create different lists and group the people I follow into them. It's a quick and easy way to check the specific categories you create.

Here are some of my Twitter posts from day that I found extremely interesting. Let me know your thoughts on them:

  • A Williams Sister and Bob Marley. RT @nbcchicago Students dress in blackface, cause uproar http://bit.ly/DqzEv

  • @wiredprworks "CommunityPR Strategies: 9 ways to keep events alive with social media" http://bit.ly/4EPb4L

Living at the Library

One of the worst things you can experience in your college career is being sick... and unfortunately, that was me last week. Not only is it bad because you feel terrible and lie in bed all day, BUT when you do get better, watch out for what's waiting for you!!

I'm so glad we don't have tennis this week because I have spent the past three days at the library. Three days for a total of 21 hours. Who does that? Lol.

I'm thinking it'd probably be best if I just set up a tent there and made it my home for the week. That would be pretty cool, now that I think about it. But, I'd probably get kicked out.

I'm getting closer and closer to finally being caught up! :-)

I've also been living and breathing public relations and business management. So if anyone needs to know anything about those subjects, I've got you covered.
