Preparing for Professionalism: A Personal Note with Universal Connections

As I waited anxiously (or “manning the battle stations” as another student worded it) for registration to open this morning for the spring of 2012, I realized how close I am to completing my degree.


One more year…


As an English Literature Major, I’ve already experienced reading, writing, and making deductions; I’m comfortable with that.


However, since I just started working on my PR minor this year, I was afraid that my passion for reading and personal connections wouldn’t transfer to the PR world.


To my surprise, I recently read an article that confirmed my life choice entitled “Do liberal arts students make better PR pros?” on Ragan.com.


To all the liberal arts students that think they’ll never be able to find a job because of studying the subject they love, take heart! Have hope!

Public relations is a great profession to apply those critical thinking skills to!


So with a combination of:

-World Literature

-Modern Poetry

-The Comparative Epic

-PR Writing & Production

-Basic Newswriting

and an internship, I’m excited to become a well-prepared professional by December 2012.


PR is truly a versatile profession!


Initial Vision Musing

At Belmont University, swirling in a sea of Music Business and Nursing Majors, I stand tall with my microcosm of English Majors, feeling a little uncomfortable and a bit too pretentious. However, the incredible quality of great minds constantly pelts me with names of authors and books, quotes flowing from lips that never tire.

There is no difference between literature and life; words are the human experience.

My initial vision for this site is to share and explore both the concepts brought about in literature, society, and simple, seemingly boring lives. It’s all there—already written down.

This is why literacy is crucial. For any sort of understanding of your place in life, you must read. Then, rather than keeping your thoughts to yourself, write it out.

When that’s not enough and you grow bored with keeping your thoughts to yourself, share them.

And what better way to share them than to get plugged in to volunteering or discussion groups?

Through this site, I hope to promote thought, connection, and literacy.

(Here’s where my Public Relations Minor enters the picture…)

Read; Write. Become Aware of the Human Condition.
