I am currently in the second semester of my “super” senior year at St. Cloud State University. I feel like I am finally in the right place and know exactly what I want to do up until graduation. It only changed my major 4 times before finally landing on Mass Communications-Public Relations. I realized after taking the introduction classes that it was something I thoroughly enjoyed doing. I also was always interested in Psychology since it was my major coming into college. I decided that instead of it being a major, I would minor in it. There is really no rush into figuring out what you want to major in so definitely take your time until you find something perfect!
I am also currently working at H.R. Pesty’s, a local bar in the area and work for C&L distributing as a Budweiser Ambassador. I have learned a variety of skills working at both these jobs that I will be able to apply to any future job that I may have. I love working at both of these jobs because I get to talk to people everyday. I am an extremely social person so it kind of is the perfect place for me to be right now. It is nice to have a job that I already work with promotions and social media campaigns because in the future, I could see myself working for any company doing those types of things.
Now, I’m just waiting for the rest of my life to begin!

Ending my Junior year, I already knew I had created a bond with people that could never be broken. I had lived with Becca, Kortney and Alison for 2 years already and during that time we had some unforgettable times. We knew that again our senior year we wanted to live together again but needed to find two more roommates to fill a six bedroom house that we were really interested in.
We knew right away that Kaci, our friend who came with to South Padre was definitely on the list but we still needed one more. Kortney suggested that we ask a friend of hers from her hometown, Joe, to be the new roomie. He accepted and the lease was signed. I had never lived with guys before so it was a little something to get used to but a great experience in the end.
I have no doubt in my mind that these 5 people will forever be involved in my life. I’m glad I was able to find friends that had so many similar interests as me. I will always have a place in my heart for them.

April 29th 2014, I turned 21 years old and was ready to take my partying to the bars! It was a great day for me that started with bloody mary’s and ended pretty early on account of all the birthday shots. After all the fun I had, it was rough to wake up the next morning paying for it all. I think I laid in bed for two whole days and promised myself I would never drink again. (Something I’m sure a lot of people have said after a long night drinking)
Obviously that pact I made myself was broken by the next weekend and somehow I had to figure out how to deal with those serious hangovers if I was going to continue the fun. Here are some awesome tips how to avoid or cure your hangover!
Remember that it is okay to have some drinks and enjoy time with friends but to always remember to stay safe. If you think you or a friend of yours has a serious problem with alcohol please get them the help that they need. To learn more about alcohol awareness visit the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism.
All through high school I had a pretty close knit group of friends. We all did everything together, we were basically inseparable. Most of those close friends left St. Cloud for college so during the first few weeks it was hard to not have them there.
Thankfully since I was living in the dorms with a lot of kids experiencing the same exact thing, making new friends wasn’t hard. I was so excited for my high school friends to come home and meet these amazing people who I’d been hanging out with. A couple of weeks into school they came to visit and I had a wonderful time with everyone that I loved.
These are my best friends from high school and a few from college. They all helped me become the person I am today, and I will forever be thankful for them.
