decisions, decisions...

So this weekend started out great!

I have officially been accepted to the Certificate Program for Event & Meeting Planning at FIU! Yay me! :) I'm so excited for fall already, I want to start the Event Planning class! Well, I really shouldn't get too ahead of myself... I still have to finish this semester off well. And I'm happy to say, it seems to be turning out pretty well after all. I've worked hard and I have A's and B's in almost every class.. my only "if" is that elusive math class that I just can't seem to get down. But hey. As long as I get my GPA up to a 3.0, I'm not complaining.

Yesterday was Kristel's bridal shower! It was beautiful. The perfect day. The location was adorable, it was small and quaint, but just right for the occasion. Kristel looked lovely, as usual, and I was just really excited for her. This is a huge step in her and Alex's lives and I wish them nothing but the best. :)

Anyway, I've been getting ideas for summer jobs... I love my new position at the FIU Testing Center, but I'm pretty nervous that with all the budget cuts facing FIU, I might get a pay cut or not be able to work 40 hours during the summer (which I need to do). So I'm looking for something in an event planning company.. maybe an internship? Anything that will get me experience! I don't want to get this Certificate for nothing. I was thinking of e-mailing some local party planning places to see if they're hiring, but part of me says its pompous of me... what do you think?

I say go for it! Call up some companies and see what's going down. That way you can really get into it and see how you like it.


And thanks for mentioning my shower! I'm glad you enjoyed it! :-)
