What to say....

Today is one of those days where I'm not totally sure what to say. So far everything is going the same. I'll be down in Richmond today helping my sister with a party. I do have to admit...after spending time with my mom Monday night, I've been a bit "homesick." It didn't really help that J came home in a very familiar (not from him) bad mood after a long day at the academy. He however did appologize for the way he acted.

Anyway, I was checking my email from EKU yesterday to see what all is going on in the next few days. There was an interesting one from student affairs in regards to facebook, blogging, myspace, etc. The letter spoke of being extremly cautious in the information put in these places due to "internet stalking"...makes sense. The letter then went on to say to also be cautious of what you put into them as employers look at it. Now, after the "blah blah blah" incident I can see to a certain degree as to how that might be the truth. However, I have a hard time believing that employers have THAT much time to stop what they are doing in the rest of the business, search the various places to see if you have posted anything, read whatever it is that you have posted and make a decision based on that information. I could be totally off and 100% wrong, but on this one I doubt it. I'm sure there are exceptions to every rule, however, not sure how many exceptions there are on this one.

Moving on...The calendar today is SO true. It says, "People judge you by your appearance. Whether you're selling a product, applying for a job or vying for promotion, they appraise not only your grooming, but the air of confidence you project, which is a reflection of how you feel about yourself. There is certainly more to a person than appearance. But you still get only one chance to make a good first impression." I noticed this very thing yesterday. Ran to the bank for like 2.2 seconds. I was in jeans and a hoodie, no make up, just in and out really quick. The teller was sweet, but no extra conversation or anything. About a week ago, I went in wearing my business suit, full make up, in and out really quick. Had the same teller as mentioned a few minutes ago. She was extremely nice, extra conversation. So yeah.

There was something else I was going to touch on briefly, but I totally forget now....oops! Oh well!

Have a wonderful day!!! (for those of you in the "regular" work week....It's hump day!!)
