Persuasive Speech for COJO 112

Tomorrow I have to give a 6-8 persuasive speech on something about poverty.

What am I going to write about, you ask? NO IDEA.

My two ideas include working for welfare and the Arizona SB 1070.

Anyone have suggestions? Thanks in advance!

No One Reads This Blog

Honestly........... No one reads this blog. But that's okay, I hardly have anything important to say.

Except.... I'm excited for J-Term! I wish I could be going to Spain or Italy or Greece. Instead I'm taking a webdesign class and working almost full time so we'll see how that goes.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Everyone have a great thanksgiving! Don't forget to remember you are blessed and take time to think about the things you are thankful for. 

Here is my list: 
  • First and formost, my health and ability to move/hear/see/speak
  • My family; my parents, and my siblings Ellie, Patrick and Daniel
  • The wonderful University of St. Thomas
  • My amazing friends, from high school and college
  • My four roommates who have always had my back
  • My two jobs; the Development Office at St. Thomas and my internship at Ticket King. I have met so many wonderful people at each place 
  • The ability to go home for the holidays!

Thanksgiving Break

I am so excited for Thanksgiving Break. St. Thomas gives us Thursday and Friday off and 2/3 of my classes on Wednesday are canceled. Thank God!!

I'm so excited to go home, not have to think or have to work. Friday we always go get our Christmas tree and decorate the house, so that should be fun! And all my friends from high school will be coming home so it will be great to see them and celebrate being home with them!

My newest way to Procrastinate

Everything is so funny and true. Take a look sometime when you need a new way to waste so much time.

Everyone's turning 21 without me :(

Literally three of my friends are turning 21 in the next two weekends.

What's a girl to do? I have to wait until April 8th! Write that down so you remember ;)

So this weekend we're going to GROUPLOVE at First Ave (kind of a pricey birthday celebration), so the people who can drink can drink, and the people who can't (me), don't have to!

Daniel's 13th Birthday!

It was my little brothers birthday on Tuesday; he turned 13! My parents bought him an iPod touch, but I don't have that kind of money so guess what I brought him for a present?

A Ticket King Helga Hat, of course!

All Dressed Up and No Place to Go

Hey hey readers.

Today I feel like a super business-y grownup, and I want to die. In one of my COJO classes, we have to go work with students at a high school and because they wear uniforms, we have to dress up too!

The worst part of this thing is that we aren't allowed to wear dresses or skirts, so I am wearing a pant suit. A pant suit. Ew.

2012 Election Results

It has been an interesting 24 hours, folks! And two nights ago, at around 11 our time, the results were in. Barack Obama was reelected as our president! I tried to go to bed before the results so I wouldn't go to bed with too many emotions or thoughts. But alas, I woke back up to my roommate calling me at 10:30 reminding me to do our communication homework due at midnight. And then, of course, I had to check my Facebook and Twitter and saw that our president had been reelected. What an exciting time! I hope that our country will continue to progress these next four years, and when I graduate from college, there will be a job for me.

Here are the final results:

Election Day

Well, readers. Today is the day.

Election Day. 

Mitt Romney will be running against President Obama and this election has gotten HEATED.

In the end, be an American and get out there and vote! Vote for what you believe in, your morals, and what values you have as an American. Read up on politics and know what you are voting for. Here is a good resource for you to see an example ballot.

May the best man win (in my honest opinion, neither of them), and let's see this country get back on it's feet and prove that America is still the greatest country!
