Listen Up: Reflection Week 14

There’s a certain thrill I get out of public speaking.  I know it seems like everyone’s #1 fear, but I kind of enjoy them, in a weird, twisted way.  It’s not because I actually like public speaking and the risk of looking like an idiot in front of a bunch of people, it’s a different … Continue reading

This Just In: Reflection Week 12

Tonight in class we practiced making our own press releases.  Professor Childs split us into groups and had us all write a press release.  The topic could be about a real or fictional event and he gave us all about 20 minutes to complete the task.  As usual, Maisie and I worked on a press … Continue reading

A 328 Word Post (Musings About a PR Class, Reflection Week 10)

Spring break did its worst to me.  For one whole week, I had a glimpse of a world with no windowless classrooms, missing chapel credits, or blackboard malfunctions.  It was such a glorious week, so forgive me readers, if this post is a little less interesting or thoughtful than the others.  Then again, who says … Continue reading

Crisis Management: Reflection 2/2/12

The one word I would use to describe tonight’s class would be “draining.”  I know Prof. Childs is doing the best he can, but I’ll be completely honest–I don’t think there’s a single student in the room that could correctly say what exactly we’re supposed to do every week.  Or maybe it’s just me.  Who … Continue reading
