Bittersweet Symphony

Considering this is my last semester ever at Georgia Southern, it has been one that is completely bittersweet. The stress of an internship, part time job and classes was a lot for me to tackle, but it made me realize how much I really can do. The highs of this semester were the times I got off from work or school and was able to just chill and hang out with friends. The lows of this semester was the stress, the ridiculous amount of random work and when I realized I won’t be here anymore after two weeks. If I could go back, I would have done more of my homework on time and not have let the senioritis get to me. Also, I would have cherished my last few classes and not have worked on other things during them. I would try to spend more time with friends and build them up so that when I do leave, I know I have strong friendships that will not dissolve due to distance. I am still blown away by the offers I received for graduate assistant positions when I interviewed for them at the University of South Carolina. I am going there for grad school and I plan to get my Masters in Higher Education Student Affairs. I know a huge reason as to all of the offers I received was because of my education here and more specifically my public relations background. I am so sad that this chapter of my life is rapidly coming to a close, but I am so excited to see what the future has in store for me. I’m headed off to Columbia, where I will never truly be a Gamecock, because Eagles are the only birds for me. 🙂

Take me out to the ball game…

The 2012 baseball season started recently. Are you a fan?  Fan or not, if you worked for the public relations team at one of the 30 major league teams, what would you suggest to entice people to come to a game? Special prices? Giveaways? Be specific in what you would do. Remember, it’s easier to have fans in the seats when your team is winning. Therefore, come up with two plans: one, if the team is doing well and a second, when the team is in a slump.

I personally am not a crazy MLB fan… I love the Braves, I love going to games and I genuinely usually enjoy baseball. With that being said, if I were on the public relations team for one of the 30 major league teams I would entice people to attend games in several different ways.

1. I would make sure to have random giveaways to pass out to one lucky winner during each inning. These could include lottery tickets, free meal at local restaurants, gift cards, etc. And most likely these items could be donated by the local establishments for the promotion on the big screen.

2. I would have a staff that was fun and inventive. When you have a staff that doesn’t mind going out on the field or up into the stands to do a fun dance or something to get the fans to interact in between the innings, it can cause for the fans to have a fun time, regardless if the home team is winning or losing.

3. I would try to have an event catered to the kids. Kids love baseball games, parents like taking their kids there, and we want them to have fun! The adults without kids have alcohol to make them smile, I want something to make the kids smile and have a good time.

All three of these things will benefit attendance regardless if the team is doing well or not so I think I will just stick to these! 🙂

Oh Prague… How I love you!

If I had the choice to go anywhere in the world, it would be to Prague. I know some of you are like what? Who wants to go to Prague? That doesn’t sound as cool as where I want to go…

Well let me tell you why!

When I was in high school, I had the amazing opportunity to travel to Europe with a bunch of my friends to go on a singing adventure with our youth choir. It was during this time as we were traveling through Germany, Hungary, Austria, Bratislava, Romania and many more places that we stopped off in the Czech Republic. We hit up the lovely town of Prague and I was hooked. Amazing cathedrals, an enormous castle with so much history in and outside of it that a professor would be in love! There were guards and fountains and just any and everything you could imagine. The city continued to take my breath away until we were told we had to leave. I only got to spend a day in Prague and if given the change, I would have spent weeks! It was just so beautiful and one of the most amazing places I had ever been in my life.

Although I have visited Prague before, I believe my time with the city was cut short and I can only imagine how I would feel to return again and really get to experience the city and its culture. What a dream! 🙂
