Life After College | 4 Years Later

May 23, 2013 I graduated from undergrad with a B.A. in English Communications – Broadcast Journalism. As for what my degree entailed, I studied English literature and radio/TV production for four years. I started in 2009 and finished in 2013 which was an accomplishment in itself as not many people in the program finished in 4 years. I didn’t take summer classes and my semesters were jam packed, but I finished. After graduation, it was just that, a graduation. No career like some of my other friends. No full-time job with benefits. I was still working at a daycare making minimum wage. In fact, I had just had surgery two weeks prior and hadn’t worked the entire month of May plus I wrapped up an internship with Billboard. Receiving my degree made all the twists and turns of my last academic year worth it. Here I am 4 years later where I can happily reflect on that time in my life as I make a stride in my career.  Continue reading “Life After College | 4 Years Later”

Motivational Monday | Life After College

Just because you don’t see God’s hand, don’t question his plan.

Three years ago today, May 23, 2013, I graduated with my B.A. in English Communications-Broadcast Journalism. Sounds fancy, but I studied both English literature and radio/TV production. It’s like a dual degree, but really falls into the Communications realm.

Here we are three years later and at the end of the summer I’ll have my MBA in Marketing. Cheers to higher education regardless of the pricey tuition and whether people think you actually need it or not.

Fashion Forward Friday [V.12]: College Grad OOTD [#Flashback]

It’s been exactly a year since I’ve graduated college with my B.A. in English Communications-Broadcast Journalism. I wasn’t sure what day this post would be falling on, but how appropriate of it to fall on a Friday so I could share my OOTD from my graduation.

I can’t believe how fast a year has gone by. I have had so many setbacks since graduation, but I refuse to let those keep me down. No I have yet to have my dream job, but I’m making a path of my own and this blog chronicles my journey. Graduating college has been the biggest achievement in my life thus far and I am so thankful and appreciative to have had the opportunity to go. I can’t wait to see where I’ll be this time next year. Of course I’ll still be blogging in the meantime.

Now for my Outfit of the Day; #FlashbackFriday edition:

Dress - JCPenny, Bissou Shoes - Target, Merona

The dress has mixed a lot of my favorites all in one. I went shopping for a graduation dress and this was the first one I came across and I fell in love. It mixes cobalt blue, crochet, high-low, and a back zipper. I absolutely love it.
