    Caitlin's Bio:
    I’m an Advertising/Public Relations major with a concentration in production and design. I’m also minoring in management and marketing. I’m a social media assistant here at the College and love every second of it. Not only does it involve hands on experience in my major, but sets a great foundation for my future. I love to go out in Duluth and spend a lot time with some of my best friends and family. St. Scholastica has made such a huge impact on my life and I wouldn’t trade it for anything!

Night Classes/Jobs

For the first time since being in school I have a night class. Tonight I went from 3:30-7 something (those are two separate classes), but it’ll normally go until 8:30. It kind of takes a lot out of you, but I really enjoy the benefits it gives me. No class Fridays and I get to sleep in. Some people can’t understand why someone would like a schedule like this. To some it looks like I sit around doing nothing. But actually this time allows me to do more for reading and homework. I’m someone who highly runs off of a lot of sleep. Some people are just like that. So this benefits me greatly. As for my job, it doesn’t get in the way. This is where the whole looking like I’m not doing anything comes into play.

Yes, I may not have a job where I have to go to a store and stand at a cash register or carry trays around, but I do work in something I’m going to school for. I do social media here and I have flexible working hours that allow me time to sleep when I need to and do my school work when I want to. When finding a job I was hoping for qualities like that, but I never expected that. I was luckily given the opportunity to have this job (it actually came to me) and I’m very grateful for this. But to make things clear…just because I do not have to physically sit in an office or go to an off site location does NOT mean  I don’t have a “real” job. I’m working in something I would like to continue with and it’s particular to my major. It’s a misunderstanding to some and if you see me behind a computer don’t assume it’s all Facebook and Twitter for personal use.

My point is if you’re given the chance, work with what YOU want. If you want to sleep late and wait for your day to get going and you can work that into your schedule do it! You’re not lazy, you’re not doing bad in school, and it doesn’t mean you’re not active. It simply means you know what you need for yourself and this will allow you to get farther. When you’re happy with your schedule it’s so much easier.

Peace out boy scout. I gotta read…a lot.

But if this bored you, here’s this:
