The New & Improved Say It I Dare You

Like Tree15361Likes

I went to a liberal arts college and my communications major also did not have a lot of business classes. I actually ended up minoring in business to add that in.

That said, I wouldn't stress too much about your major. It is important of course, but I think as students we tend to over emphasize the importance of it. The reality is, you learn most what you will do in your career by working on the job and from your managers and mentors, not in school. The purpose of school is to teach you how to think, analyze, and relate, more than anything else.

And if you are worried about the perception of future employers, I think it is very common for communication majors to end up in the marketing field. I actually think I got more out of my comm classes than my business classes when it comes to understanding how to think critically, speak well, and write... the skills I use on a daily basis in my career.

I would suggest studying what you enjoy learning and the rest will come.
My hair: 3b, corkicelli, medium porosity, medium texture, medium/thick density

Co-wash: DevaCurl NoPoo
Rinse-out: GVP Conditioning Balm
Leave-in: KCKT, Suave Naturals Coconut, or my rinse-out!
Gel: SS FHG (my new HG!!)... I also like HESMU, AIF, CJ CQ, BRHG, CJ PP and the occasional LALSG

Likes: Plopping!
Dislikes: Glycerin

CG and loving it!

In my experience former journalists tend to make better PR people and are easier to work with because they understand our needs and deadlines. They are comfortable on camera, give better interviews and don't send us three page releases. Some PR people we hate dealing with because they will invite us to stuff and then when we show up they tell us we can't take pictures. Why invite us? Or they use too much industry lingo that common people won't understand so we have to "translate."

I think a lot of markets are flooded right now so I'm not sure PR/marketing is any worse than others. I had a very hard time getting hired out of school, but I graduated in 07 when things were just starting to crash and burn. I definitely recommend internships while still in school. Experience is golden when you start looking for full time work.

I am so excited. I just saved $450 on some old tax bill that I had no clue about. I am just a little bit closer to finally being debt free and I couldn't be happier. I just had my last class through Financial Peace University last night and I have to say I loved it. Soon I can focus all my savings towards owning my own Bakery. I plan to open in the spring of 2015. I am soo happy.

Mixed Silk is no longer on Sally's website. Is there any on the ground for the low low? I want to rack up.

I have no idea, I had real curlformers than cheap ones from ebay both worked the same, but still hurt my head to sleep in.

I would go with whichever one hurts your head less.

OMG GET THEM FROM EBAY.

THey're like cheap and the same.

I sold my real curl formers then wanted them again and got them from ebay for super cheap. Work exactly the same!


I thought I prssed reply but this box is still open. LOL

I'll take SPSS over R, SAS or STATA any day. I've used and liked more complicated programs (e.g., MATLAB and I kinda like R and SAS), but they made SPSS user unfriendly in this version. It just kills me why anyone would do this at all.
