The Farewell Tour

I just realized that I never really did an official "start of school" post so because Fall is JUST around the corner (yay!) and it's September 2nd, I decided to do one today (in case you were wondering the title refers to this quote from the OC when Summer compares their senior year to a "farewell tour".... but you probably didn't care that much haha.) Anyhoo this semester I'm definitely going to be BUSY! I'm taking about 18 credit hours which rounds out to about 6 of them is a shorter class and is going to end September 24 (and I can't WAIT to watch Grey's that night to celebrate) so that will definitely lighten up my load a bit!

This semester I'm taking:
Intro to Organizational Communications (so far this is seriously the most WORTHLESS class I've ever taken but hopefully it will get better)
Conflict Communications (I actually like this one)
Communications Theory and Research (any class with "theory" in the title is def going to be zzzz)
Labortory Diagnosis of Disease (probably not the best choice for a hypochondriac but at least this will end soon!)
Intro to Black World Studies (had to take it for a gen requirement but the prof is funny which is good...WAY too much work for a 100 class however)
Consumer Behaviors ( far so good)

I'm also involved with my campus' chapter of PRSSA, my sorority (I'm one of the chairs of pref round...we don't rush until 2nd semester which is nice because we have LOTS of time to get ready), and hopefully a third thing but I don't want to jinx it so I'll let you all know when I find out! So that's my's going to be VERY VERY busy (I'm already behind on reading haha) but hopefully good and I can actually learn some things! What are you all doing/taking this fall?

PS~ last night I sacrificed some of the reading that I had to do to watch The Strangers with some of my housemates...oh MAN it was SCARY!!! Has anyone else seen it...what did you think?


  1. Sounds like you have a busy semester ahead!! Lots of luck to you.

  2. Love the O.C. reference (one of my all-time favorite shows and I have every season on DVD)!

    Sounds like a busy and fun semester!

  3. I love the OC, I was so sad when it ended for good! Good luck with your classes, you are definitely going to be a busy girl!

  4. Ahh I cannot believe you watched that movie- creepy! I hated it. I cannot believe they are coming out with a sequel...

    You look busy this year with school!! Good luck :) :) :)

  5. The Strangers was a super scary movie. I got the chills watching it. And word on the media street is that they may be making a 2nd one. Eekkss

  6. I can not watch any scary movies... YIKES!
    xxxx me

  7. Wow you will be so busy!! Good Luck!!

    The Strangers FREAKED me out!!!! I get chills just thinking about it!!

  8. Ahh I recognized your post title right away! I miss that show so much :(

    And, as for The Strangers, it was by far the scariest movie I have ever seen. I couldn't sleep for like a week & when I think about it I get freaked out all over again...

  9. Came across your blog and wanted to say hi! What a cute background!

  10. It sounds like a busy semester, but the conflict communications class sounds interesting.

    I loved The Strangers and agree that it was very creepy. The part that got me the most was that there was no reason for it. It makes me want to stay out of the woods!

  11. Good luck with school! E N J O Y I T!!! It will go by tooo fast!

  12. We sound like twinnies! I'm PRSSA pres. of my school and also in a sorority! I'm in charge of panhellenic recruitment this fall!

    We should def. start e-mailing! It sounds like we have a ton in common.
