A Busy Monday… student, tailor, and employee.

Thinking back on my day yesterday, I realize that, although I didn’t feel very “accomplished”, I actually did accomplish quite a bit…

First thing in the morning (6:30am) I woke up, showered, and got ready to go to class: Contract Drafting and Analysis for Sport Managers.  I must say, the class is very interesting and I thoroughly enjoy it, but at 8am, it can be a struggle sometimes.  Yesterday was good, though.  We did some review for our test next week – very beneficial.

After class, one of my roommates, my friend, and I went back to our house to work on our group presentation coming up this Thursday.  We are presenting on “The Purple Cow” in our Advanced Sport Marketing class.  I know you’re probably wondering what brightly-coloured farm animals have to do with marketing, but trust me, the theory is valid.  Our presentation has to be approximately 45 minutes in length, so we’re planning to have a brief summary of the material and then lots of discussion and a couple of activities.  Yes, you do “activities” in class, even in university.  While the first meeting for a group project is usually a brief discussion about our plans and dividing up work, we actually managed to get most of our presentation planning and slideshow done.  We worked so well together… it was fantastic.  Now we just have to put the finishing touches on the slideshow and each practice what we’re going to say before class on Thursday.

After lunch, I did a few small things, like printing off readings and answering emails.  I also called my Gramma to see how her week was (I call her once a week).  Then my roommates and I were discussing what to wear to the masquerade party we’re attending in a couple weeks (stay tuned for that blog entry); this led to me playing “tailor” and sewing Maralee’s dress… by hand!  As you can see, we had a small “sewing kit” (if you can even call it that) and little to no experience… but it turned out well and now Maralee can wear her beautiful blue dress.

I also worked yesterday from 5pm-9pm in the Guernsey Market on campus.  I worked in the dish room doing (you guessed it) dishes.  Working on campus is so convenient because I am able to choose my shifts to suit my class schedule; I never have a conflict between class and work.  Also, I work the same shifts every week, so I am able to make plans accordingly.  Not to mention the fact that I live quite close to Brock… so no need to travel too far for work.  If you’re interested in getting a job on campus as a Brock student, visit the Career Services website to check out the job board and apply.

After a long day of being a student, a tailor, and an employee, I went home and my roommates and I watched a couple episodes of Friday Night Lights…. my all-time FAVOURITE TV show… before going to bed.  Oh, the life of a student.
