PRSSA 2010-2011 Tuesday, Apr 27 2010 

So I just got back from the last PRSSA meeting of the semester. Elections were held…and free pizza was provided by the organization. I’m really excited to say that I’ll be vice president next year and I’m really looking forward to it. Haley Higgs is the new president and Brigitte Gausche is the new treasurer/secretary. Haley already has A LOT planned for PRSSA to do next year and I can’t wait to be involved. I hope that those of you who are members will be at the meeting and hear what we have to say and if you haven’t joined then please do next fall! I hope to see you all there!

Have a great summer!

Tina Fey Has “Bieber Fever” Wednesday, Apr 21 2010 

So I by no means suffer from “Bieber Fever,” but when I saw this skit on Saturday Night Live a week or so ago I could not stop laughing. I was suprised by Justin Bieber’s slight acting ability. There’s just something funny about little Canadian Justin Bieber singing about buying his teacher some Spanx! Haha! Tina Fey was hilarious as always, but I thought I’d share this with y’all because it’s just too funny. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Team PRSSA Relay For Life Bake Sale Wednesday, Apr 21 2010 

We held a bake sale on March 31 (which is my birthday BTW) and raised $53.10! We thought that was pretty good considering we had some huge competition with other people trying to sell food at the Rotunda. One group was selling plates of jerk chicken, green beans, and rice, while another was selling ice cream sundaes. We’ll probably do the same thing next year because Brigitte Gausche makes fabulous cupcakes. I made chocolate chip cookies (which sucked) so her cup cakes were a hit and our best seller. Here’s a picture of Brigitte Gausche, Megan Bearden, and Haley Higgs helping out at the bake sale!

PRSSA @ Relay For Life! Wednesday, Apr 21 2010 

So this past Friday (April 16) was the American Cancer Society’s annual event Relay For Life. Brigitte Gausche and I are co-liaisons in PRSSA and it was our job to do anything and everything Relay For Life related. And can I just say that the ACS makes things waaay more complicated than they should be. I mean, can’t we just raise lots of money, show up on the day of the event, decorate our tent, and turn in what we earned?! OK, I’m done venting…moving on,  this year we raised a total of $325! Which is great considering we had about 23 team members and only about 5 that actually helped before and after the event and raised money. I’m really proud of our team and I’m looking forward to next year! Here’s a picture of our tent!
