I have been in the process of revamping my website, so I decided that while I was at it, I should give this blog a new design too. I realllllly like this one. There was another theme that I really wanted to use, but the sidebar image didn’t look good. Look out for a new website… coming soon to an Internet near you!
As I mentioned in my last post, Monday and Tuesday were the GT career fair. I honestly do not think that life could be any better! Here is a lesson for everybody out there: Hard work pays off! Sometimes, Georgia Tech can seem unforgiving, but I promise- it is worth it, without a single doubt. :) On Monday, I went to the career fair, and I got an interview with Expedia for the next day.
That word has so many different meanings this morning! My website needs major re-doing. Although I love the simplicity of the design, it just does not strike the eye as “wow”. Also, the projects are all downloadable on there. I would rather be able to implement some of them as web applications or have video demos, rather than putting up source code. I have a major career fair coming up in just about 2 hours.
That seems to be the word of this week. Big homework. Big grades. Big career fair. Big companies. And hopefully, it will all end up with this: Big job. With the GT Career Fair coming up, there is so much to do. I am really feeling sooo much more prepared this year, though, than I was last year. I am really feeling more awesome than usual, and my motivation level has just increased to a crazy-high (normally, it is pretty high anyway).
What a weekend. I am pretty sure that it was probably the roughest one that I had. Considering what a pretty fun summer it was, the first 8 days of my last semester as an undergraduate have been quite rough. My first week started out alright, I guess. It is good that my classes are keeping me on top of my reading. The best part is that I am staying on top of the reading, and that I have the time to do that this semester.
I had just turned 9 years old, and I was mesmerized by Lilia Podkopayeva, the gold medalist in the all-around gymnastics competition at the 1996 Olympic games. Her grace and beauty, combined with complicated skills, were not matched by anybody else: she was the complete package. Since then, I have watched the Olympics gymnastics competition every 4 years. As the years went on, there were great gymnasts (Svetlana Khorkina, Shannon Miller, Carly Patterson, Simona Amanar, etc.), but most of them were successful not because of their artistry, but because of their powerful athleticism.
After a summer of hard work, it is done! Check out the BRAND NEW Women@CC website!! Steph & I re-designed and re-did all of the content this past summer. We are hoping that it will stay up-to-date. Here is a snapshot: I am planning to do a training session for the new webmasters. That way, when I graduate in December and Steph graduates in Spring, the website won’t become inactive again.
Enid Blyton used to be one of my favorite authors when I was little. My favorite series were “Famous Five.” I would read those books within just a few hours and long for more. I loved the adventures that the Famous Five- each one just seemed so unique. This summer has been full of different adventures for me. Check out the pictures from my fun times (I apologize for the lack of blogging, but I hope this helps explain it) on my Picasa account.
It has been all about time… and where it goes. More than anything, college has really taught me what my passions are and to manage my time very efficiently. After a summer of work and fun activities, I have realized what I really love to do– and why I gave up one of my favorite activities of all time to pursue other things, I am not sure. This coming semester, however, I am going to turn things around.
