I’m writing you as a senior with a 12 credits until I become a BS’er of Communication.
I really do not like school. I’m ready to be done so I can figure out what I want to do when I grow up.
This semester I’m taking a public speaking class and a math class. My online public speaking class is requiring me to record speeches and submit them to the instructor. I’m not sure if this is a peer-graded assignment or just instructor, but I’m willing to post them here if you guys want to see them.
Don’t feel obligated to give a crap…but I’m going to post them anyway.
I’m skeptical about getting a civilian job. Not because I’m not marketable or lack excitement for becoming employed in the civilian sector. I’m sure my 10yrs of Public Affairs experience in the Marine Corps will set me up for success, but I’m sure there are things I’m going to miss about being in uniform.
I think my passion of the affairs of the public will push me to wondrous heights of success.
I’m at work listening to You Made It Weird with Pete Holmes and he’s interviewing Jenny Slate.
If you are not listening to Podcasts, you might want to check out the following P’casts:
- You Made It Weird with Pete Holmes
- WTF with Marc Maron
- Comedy Bang Bang
- The Adam Carolla Show
- Alison Rosen is Your New Best Friend
Podcasts are amazing and if you listen to these you’re life will be enriched.
Be Gentlemen, Gentlemen.
For those of my readers who are unaware; my sister is married. My sister’s husband has a sister; my sister-in-law. This sister-in-law is a fellow Pirate and makes pottery in the Greenville, NC area.
I hadn’t spoken to my sister-in-law in a very long time until this morning, when she commented on my sister’s Facebook page about post I had made, offering a retort to some blaggard who posted drivel on her page. My sister is too nice to write mean things on the internet to people who deserve. I, however, don’t possess this restraint. Those of you who might be aware; I try to observe good internet etiquette and refrain from using vulgar language, because it diminishes ones internet credibility.
But, I wanted to get to the pots and other kiln-fired cook/eat -ware.
Margaret is quite a talented potter, making all sorts of creative and practical pieces of stoneware. She makes casarole dishes, plates, bowls, saucers, cups…I’m surfing between her site and this post while I’m writing…It would appear that if it can be made out of clay or clay-like substances, it would seem she can make it. I found full sets of dinnerware on her site that were pretty impressive. I’m not sure exactly how to go about purchasing her work, but her website is well laid-out and if you seem something you like, drop her a line.
Feel free to check out her site: The Brown Pottery
Thanks for reading,
As of January 7th my second semester as a Junior at ECU gets underway. I decided with my all of my forcasted job travel I was only going to take two classes instead of my usual four. Less stressful from a work/life standpoint but I’m really ready to be done with school.
I’ve already met some great folks in my English 3880 Business Writing Class. I haven’t met too many people in my Professional Ethics class, but it’s going to be a decent class. My instructor for English: Prof. S. Lawrence is pretty cool so far, not as distant as some of the online professors I’ve had, very engaging.
To another great semster.
To my fellow students regardless of school: May your studying pay off, your grades be awesome, may your focus be sharp and your parties be many; live it up because one day we’re the young-ish minds who are going to change the world…
