Things My Friends Say

So I’m going to start a segment called “Things My Friends Say” because, frankly, they say the darndest things. Be warned, they’re some inappropriate little buggers. So here’s the first post:

Me: I’m thirsty
My BF: I’ve got semen
Me: -_-

Focus

I need to begin to focus more. I mean the title of the blog is Scatterbrained so that shouldn’t be much of a surprise. I was so stoked to start this blog then I got the idea to start a YouTube channel and then some other ideas. 

I realized this is why nothing I start is ever great. I’m so quick to abandon one project for a new, shinier one. But that ends now! I am going to try to blog here once a week (I’ll work up to doing it more often). 

No idea what I’ll blog about because my life is quite boring. Warning: This blog will have no theme. If I want to blog about fashion, I’ll do that. If I want to blog about my current obsession with home decor, I’ll do that. And if I’m feeling super nerdy (but yet girly), expect a post about super cute tech accessories. But mostly it’ll be about my boring, average, slightly weird life

New Blog

I won’t be updating this blog anymore. I need a fresh start. I was in a bad place when I began this blog so it holds bad memories for me.

Update: Transfers & Travel

Okay guys. Sorry for the long break… again. I have been soooo busy. My classes this semester are more intense than I’m used to so I had to re-learn how to manage my time. I just couldn’t logically fit blogging in until I had my academics figured out. Anyway, this is an update post.

So, guess what?! I got accepted into the school I’ve been working on transferring to! I hadn’t made a post about it earlier because… well honestly I forgot to. I’m so excited to go there but can’t say why without giving to much info about what school it is.

Also, I have decided to do study abroad for Summer 2014. The trips I want to go on cost a LOT which is why it won’t be Summer 2013. I know I can get enough financial aid to go, but I just don’t want to rush it because I’ll just stress myself out. One of the programs is a 12-week internship in London. If I get into that program I will be SICK with excitement. That would be a dream come true for me! I plan on getting an internship this coming summer & fall so that my resume will be good enough for me to get the particular internship I want (E! Entertainment). If I don’t get into that program, I will be going to either Paris, Cannes, or Barcelona.

I’ve never been anywhere outside the country except for Mexico but that’s nowhere special in my opinion. Especially, since I went on a cruise so I was only actually in Mexico for a few hours before we left and headed back. And we only went to some beach owned by the US so.. yea.

Welp, that’s all for now folks. First big exam of the semester tomorrow so I’ll have a post on that and how sucky this semester at a tech college has been.

Breaking Expectations

Since I was a little girl, I knew I wanted to join a sorority when I grew up. I always thought it would be an NPHC (they’re historically black). I had never thought of any other options. I only have 2 sorority members in my family but both are in NPHCs. The idea of possibly joining an NPC had never crossed my mind.. until a year ago.

I attend an interest meeting for NPHC greeks last year. I was very excited to go, but when I got there I just didn’t feel like I fit in. When the time came to speak to the sorority girls I just felt like they were a bit closed off. I don’t know how to really explain it. I’m sure most of this was just perception. I’ve never gotten along with most Black girls unless they were seriously suburban. I just can’t relate.

Anyway, something came up where I wasn’t able to pledge anyway. Surprisingly I didn’t care. That should’ve been my first clue. My second clue was when my best friend asked me why I wanted to join the particular group I was interested in. I couldn’t give an answer except that my favorite teachers in school were in it.

I knew I would have to reconsider my choice. Still, I assumed I would choose another NPHC. I started doing research on the Greeks at my school an accidentally clicked the link for the NPC sororities. I decided, “Hey, I’m here. Why not read it”. The more I read the more I interested I became. I loved that you didn’t have to pick one particular sorority and single that one out before getting to experience what the girls of each sorority were like first. I loved the philanthropic endeavors each sorority was involved in. I loved how close they seemed. Their sisterhood seemed stronger than what I thought. So I decided that I would go against what people expected of me. Next year when I transfer back into a 4 year school, I will be Rushing for an NPC sorority.

I will admit I am very scared. I know that the black students on campus will give me a lot of flack. My family will probably use it as the basis of many jokes ( although they won’t be surprised. They already say I’m just a white girl with a tan). Most of all I’m scared the girls of the NPCs won’t he accepting of me. I live in Georgia and don’t know how much that aspect of the south has improved. I will just try to be myself. If they like me, great! If not, I guess I won’t be a sorority girl after all. But at least I will have tried.

Around the end of May, I got a job at McDonald’s. It was my first long term job (my first job was seasonal) and I was excited to finally be making money. I should’ve known I would hate the job from the start.

I came in one day for orientation. It was just about an hour and all we did was watch videos. Well after that I didn’t hear back from them for 2 weeks. In fact, the only reason I got started with my training was that I called and asked why I hadn’t heard anything. Training was 3 hour shifts where I focused in different tasks each day. Unfortunately the managers at my job suck at staying on task so they had me doing other things than what I was assigned. For that reason, I trained 4 weeks instead of 2. I was so angry.

To make it worse, once I was done with training, I was only given 3 days a week to work instead if the five I was promised. Furthermore, even though I am scheduled to work 4 to midnight, I have still never worked later than 10. Most days, I am sent home at 8 because there are “too many people” (and they are STILL hiring). This means I only get 3 hours a day (I have a one hour break). So basically I have been working there about 2 months and STILL am making training pay. Yeaaaa… I can’t keep doing this. I am broke every month once I pay my car insurance and phone bill.

So, I have decided I shall take this no longer! I filled out a bunch of applications and am going in to all the places some time this week to follow up. Pray for me y’all! Mama needs a job!
