For some reason this morning, I decided to log on to my Word Press. It has been almost a year since my last post, I remember because I just moved to Kansas and I promised myself that I would continue to write on here. I guess I broke my promise.
I do have a few stories that I would like to share and I hope to have them posted in the near future.
When I was six years old, my mother, sister and I moved to Canada. I have been living there ever since. But, on my 22 birthday I decided to move back to the United States where the majority of my family still lives. This is a big move for me.
I have spent over half my life in Canada. It’s what I know, what I am used to and familiar with. However, it will be a good change to be back in the States. I will be able to spend more time with my family, see my nephews grow up, spend time with my Grandfather.
I am a pretty easy going person, I can adapt to my surroundings very well. I may have a few bumps while I first get started in this new stage in my life. But I am confident enough that I will do pretty good. It’s a big change, but a change for the better.
As a final assignment for my Public Relations program I helped plan our end of the year celebration. My four group members and I spent months planning details for this event. The theme was based on Alice in Wonderland. This theme was perfect because it gave us a chance to be creative. I know that I had a lot of fun coming up with decoration ideas on a very limited budget. We ended up spending around $30 on decoration supplies.

There were five tables at this event and each one had its own decorations according to a certain Alice in Wonderland character or scene. There was the Rabbit table, flower table, cat table, tea / Mad Hatter table and last but not least the Queen of Hearts table.
When doing this event, I found myself getting caught up in the theme and trying to come up with clever ways to set up the banquet hall.
I have to say that I found my passion for event planning when doing this event. I can not wait for when I get the opportunity to plan an other event.

During my 3 years of college I have always been a little confused on what I wanted to be as a professional. It was not until I finished the public relations program when I found my passion for planning events. Unfortunately for me, it was literally the last month of school when I found this out – go figure right.
Even though my college life is finished for now, I am not going to stop learning. I am starting this blog so I can hopefully learn from professionals out there. I want to share my experiences, ideas and concerns. I am open to any and all tips that people may have.
