September Highlights

The past few weeks I’ve been very busy, but it has definitely paid off! First, I’m happy to annouce I will be one of the students attending UGA Connect on Sept. 19-20. Apparently blogging my entrance essay (in the post below) earned me a few brownie points 🙂 I am excited to learn all I can about social media from some very important names in PR that will be speaking at the conference. Along with three other students, I will also be helping to cover the event via Twitter, podcasts, the blog and more. Follow me on Twitter for updates!

The goal is that all of the new social media knowledge will come in handy during the job search early next year, but also as I continue to promote Jeannette Rankin Foundation and their new book, Daring to Dream. More about the book and ordering information can be found here.

On a different note, I have now officially mastered the surprise b-day party! Ken turned 26 on Sept. 7, and on Friday more than 20 of his friends and family showed up at the Cheesecake Factory at Perimeter Mall for a surprise b-day dinner. Judging by his face as he walked in (seen above), he had no clue what he was walking into! He said later it was one of the best nights he had every had 🙂 I have to give the staff at the Cheesecake Factory kudos for attempting to piece together the cake, which fell apart during the ride down to Atlanta. To see more pictures, check out my Google album.

In other news, I am volunteering at Tri For Tourettes (at the Concourse in Atl) on Sunday, and am excited about seeing all the kiddies do their thing! It’s amazing how young they are starting now. It is also the last season I’ll be able to watch the Dawgs from the student section, so the next few home games are sure to be fun, and possibly slightly emotional.

Stay tuned for UGA Connect recap and more!
