My Monday Musts

Happy Monday, readers!

While I’m enjoying some nice R&R while on Spring Break, I’m trading in any beach bum adventures for laying in my Breakfast at Tiffany’s themed bedroom, reading, blogging, and binge watching Criminal Minds (and preparing myself, and my liver, for my 21st birthday on Sunday!). However, I truly do need this time to rest, relax, and just put on a face mask while wearing my favorite fuzzy socks because I have had a ton of great news happening for me these past few days.

First off, I got my first internship! I am now an editorial intern for TheCelebrityCafe.com, writing on celebrity gossip, television recaps, and all things related to Hollywood! I officially start this week and can’t wait to dive right in – snuggled up in bed, freshly manicured fingers typing away at the computer! Stay connected with me on Twitter to read my posts, which I will be tweeting and retweeting.

I am the newest News Director elect for my school’s TV station! Overall, I have gotten super involved with my school’s television station – living and breathing journalism. On Wednesday alone, I did work for the station from 11 am until 10:30 p.m. and let me tell you readers, I loved it! It was in that moment that I realized that I truly am doing exactly what I love and can’t wait to continue to do it as my career. Well, it is a good thing that I realized this because I was elected to the News Director position. This means, whenever there is any breaking news I will be the first one on the scene, tweeting about what is happening, putting together a web write up, and getting footage. Plus, I will have a lot more behind the scenes work to do on our school’s newscast. I did the weather in our last newscast, as well as put together a package on the snow mounds around campus! Check it out here.

I was elected into the National Residence Hall Honorary Society! On Quinnipiac’s campus, this organization only accepts the top one percent of student leaders. I am honored to be classified in that group. The National Organization is based upon “honorary comprised of exemplary residential students who value recognition and service.”  I am excited to be inducted in April to this group of other driven student leaders to help honor other star leaders on campus.

I am returning as a Resident Assistant to my building again next year! The most rewarding experience of my life has been becoming an Resident Assistant, as I have explained time and time again on here. As the process of rehiring and getting placed in residence halls for next year came quickly, I was getting so nervous. First off, I absolutely wanted to stay with freshmen. I don’t think I could ask for a more rewarding experience that being a “big sister” role for 20-something 18 year olds as they begin to find their place in college. More over, I don’t think I would have gotten such an incredible experience if I was in a different residence hall. Lucky enough for me, I will be returning to Irma/Dana for another fun-filled year!

Also, coming up I have my 21st birthday, a bunch of my friend’s turning 21, my first time hitting the bars with my big, my junior year formal, and my 21st birthday open bar! Here’s to March being one incredible month, filled with plenty more good times and even more good news!

My Monday Musts

My oh my, happy Monday readers!

I haven’t said that in quite some time. After going on an M.I.A. stint, I moved back into Quinnipiac to start my junior year and life as a Resident Assistant. Since then, my life has been more chaotic than normal. Classes finally started today, my residents are all settled in, and I have a fresh new manicure to start tackling junior year!

This week’s Monday Musts are going to be a little bit different than the normal three exciting items of the week. Instead, I’m just going to give you a life update. So bare with me as we go over my life – without this post, I wouldn’t be able to start all the exciting posts I have scheduled (including one I’ve been working my butt off on!)

Since I last blogged almost a month ago, so many different events have happened!

Three of my best friends headed off to Ireland to study abroad….

My classes started today. I only had one already – which is taught by an Emmy award winning producer on television and radio production. How cool is that?!

Ever have that feeling when you make a really awesome decision and you just know that so many positive things will come from it? That’s how I’m feeling now. I can’t wait to see where my life’s journey continues to take me!

Have an awesome week, keep sparkling, and stay tuned for next week’s Monday Musts to be back to normal!

My Monday Musts

Happy Monday, readers!

So I’m currently on Spring Break! Instead of laying out on a Florida  beach soaking up the sun or skiing the Vermont slopes (not that I know how to ski anyway, I’m too accident prone that no one ever will take me on the slopes….), I’m laying on my couch in good ole’ Dirty Jersey planning my sorority’s formal, while taking a few breaks to catch up on America’s family, the Kardashians.

So with my messy bun looking messier than ever, 10 tabs of Pinterest open to my formal board, and crafting supplies scattered all over my dining room table, I decided to take a break from creating Alpha Delta Pi’s own wonderland for our “Alice in Wonderland” themed formal to share with you all this week’s My Monday Musts!

1. My Big Diamond and I celebrated our One Year Anniversary this Week!

Remember before I mentioned how I’m not skiing on any slopes because I’m so accident prone – well, one year ago during big/little diamond reveal ceremony, I wasn’t there because I had broken my hand and had possibly tendon damage. So a few days after everyone else had their formal reveal, I came back to school, and within 10 minutes, Katherine took me and my sling out to froyo so we can do an impromptu reveal. The day I received Katherine as my big diamond was one of the biggest blessings Alpha Delta Pi has given me. Katherine has been there for me through every up, every down, and every weekend adventure. She is my best friend, my sister, and my big diamond. I can’t express how incredible she is in my life, so not only did I have to share with you all that we just celebrated one year together as being big/little diamond sisters, but hope that all of your sorority girls have bigs like her!

2. Adding Resident Assistant to my Resume

One of my biggest goals of my college career was to become a Resident Assistant for freshman on Quinnipiac’s campus. This past week was the interviewing processes. Finally, on Wednesday, I received the e-mail saying that out of 236 applications, 26 where chosen – and I was one of them. I don’t think I have been this happy and this proud of myself in such a long time. Having a bunch of freshman residents is all I could dream about – I want to stay up late with them eating Dominoes discussing boy problems and life, I want them to come to me for outfit approvals, and for me to ultimately be their shoulder to lean on as they get through their first year of college. I have already been looking on Pinterest for ideas for door decorations and program ideas. For the Quinnipiac Class of 2018 who will be living in Irma next year, get ready, because RA Sami is ready to create the best year you can imagine.

3. Jack Rogers & Chubbie’s Giveaway

Jennifer Taylor, the social media and PR associate of Jack Rogers, contacted me this week to help spread the word on their current giveaway! (Talk about total fan girling… someone from Jack Rogers contacted ME!). Jack Rogers and Chubbies partnered together to create a sorority woman and fraternity man’s dream giveaway – to give away a pair of Jack Rogers sandals for her and Chubbies shorts for him. I entered the giveaway! Have you? Whether you’re on your phone or computer, you can enter the giveaway here.

So as I get back to the craziness of planning a formal and the spring break of a 40 year old woman thanks to the over 100 e-mail I need to answer, I just wanted to share something fun with you all…..
