Spring Semester Catch Up

I feel awful for not keeping up with this blog as much as I would have hoped recently. There are so many things that I want to record and share with you because I am having such an amazing last semester so far. I’m going to try and mention some of the main things that have happened during the last few months without writing a novel (wish me luck)!

New Years 2014 – as much as I badmouth this holiday as “overrated,” I actually gave in to the hype and made plans this year. I ended up buying a ticket to some party at the Borgatta in Atlantic City with a big group of friends from high school. It ended up being one of the best New Years celebrations I’ve ever had so I’m definitely happy that I gave in to the peer pressure. I stuck with my best friend Yael for the whole night and we had a great time dancing, mingling, and enjoying the open bar available for two hours. This was my first New Years being of age, so hey, I needed to enjoy it! We stayed down the shore that night in Margate with a bunch of our guy friends and had an awesome time laughing in the morning about the night before. Definitely one of my favorite winter break memories!

Florida with the family – I was lucky enough to escape the winter break snow storm up north by going to Florida with my family and visiting my grandparents, Bubbie and Zadie. It was so nice to spend some quality time with everyone so I really tried to make the most out of the vacation with family bonding. Unfortunately, the weather was not very nice and we saw the sunshine for a total of two hours in a span of five days. Of course my family made the best of it by eating and shopping our way through Ft. Lauderdale, Miami and Delray Beach. We also got to celebrate my mom’s 50th birthday (a lot). I can’t complain though, we were lucky enough to have weather in the 50’s and rainy than be in the 20’s with snow! One of my favorite parts of the trip was learning Yiddish words from Bubbie and Zadie.

Snow/Ice Days – THREE FULL DAYS OF CLASS CANCELLED. Enough said! I enjoyed some major downtime from this busy semester by watching TV, looking for jobs to apply to, and hanging out with friends. It was awesome. I do have to admit, though, that by the time I had to go back to class I was definitely ready. It’s hard for me not to have a routine or be on schedule!

New Internship – I have been interning since the beginning of this semester in January at a community college in downtown Wilmington called Cape Fear. I am so thankful for this opportunity because I have been doing a lot of work related to a professional career in public relations! I am the Marketing & PR intern for the Public Information Office and have been working hard on writing press releases, articles, taking photos, designing marketing slides, and more! The internship is going really well and I am so glad I’m getting this experience with duties related to PR, which is what I want to do for a career!

More to come ASAP about more recent and exciting things for me this semester 🙂
