    1. I just looked at their site and it looks amazing! Unfortunately I don’t know if I’d be able to get an application in on time by the 31st (tomorrow). Do they hire by semester or just in the fall? Because if they do it by semester then I could always try for the spring!

    1. Awww thank you so much! I do not attend UF… I considered it briefly but found my home somewhere else. Plenty of my friends go there and love it, though– I’m sure you’ll enjoy it!

      Thanks for all of your feedback. I will definitely check out your blog!

  1. love your blog because of your writing style. i will definitely be checking in. congrats on freshly pressed-that’s how i found you! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you so much! : ) I’m really excited about that… it came as a total shock to me but I was just so thrilled to see it. I really appreciate your comment!

  2. I just found your blog via Freshly Pressed – congrats for making it on, by the by! I will definitely be back to visit ๐Ÿ™‚ I graduated from FSU in 2009 and I can relate so much to a lot of what you say – especially the part about being soul mates with your major! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you so much! ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s so great to find something you love. I started college as a journalism major who knew she didn’t want to be a journalism major, and it really wasn’t fun introducing myself as that. A couple months later after some soul searching and a trip to Career Services, I landed on Advertising/Public Relations, and I couldn’t be happier! What did you major in? It’s nice to meet another student in Florida!

  3. That’s so interesting… it’s so great to find something you’re passionate about. I’ve never met someone who studies that but that is really really cool!
