Final Blog

Bianya Tennerson- I've changed my mind... I will be doing my paper on how the roles of mothers have changed on television shows. I will probably look at shows like I love Lucy and the Cosby Show... and, I just want you to know that I've thoroughly enjoyed your class and it really has opened my eyes to so many things!

Snow?!

I am not a fan of cold weather at all but this "snow" couldn't have come at a better time. I am so far behind with studying for classes and really needed this extra day. If we could just keep this going for the rest of the week, that would be great! That's very unlikely though cause like the saying goes... if you don't like the weather in Texas, wait 5 minutes! I'm sure we'll be back in flip flops by the weekend.

Stalled

Is it just me or has this semester just stalled? I feel like I was making pretty good progress and everything was moving accordingly at a reasonable rate and now.... nothing! Can this semester please end?! I'm so over it, I don't know what to do with myself. I just need a break from Texas, writing papers, driving to denton every freakin' day, etc. Come on Christmas.....!

Natalee

Dr. Phil, who I kinda like, is now on my bad side! He has been roped into this Natalee Holloway thing and putting it back into the headlines where it shouldn't be. I thought that we were done with this girl but apparently not. I still, for the life of me, cannot understand why this girl is getting so much more attention than "Jane Doe" who disappeared before she did or since she has. I would love for someone to come up with a statistic about how many people in Dallas- Fort Worth alone have disappeared since the summer, which is when she vanished. I don't get it! Why is this girl so important to us? Now, don't get me wrong, I really feel horrible for her family and really want her to be returned back unharmed but what about all the others?

Don't Call Me Honey

I am probably the biggest Dallas Cowboy fan ever and last week I had a dream come true. I went into there locker room and got to meet them all. This was all because of an internship that I have. The point of that day was for me to observe the "interviewing" process. We interviewed the players as well as coach Parcells. Something did bother me though. While all the reporters were sitting around Parcells, trying to come up with a really profound and brilliant question to ask him... A female reporter, 1 of only 3, took the plunge first. Apparently, she was speaking to softly and Parcells couldn't hear her. Then he said, "What was that honey?" Oh my God! Are you kidding me? I couldn't believe that he said that. Honey! Would he have said that to a male reporter? I seriously doubt it! I just felt like it was really condescending like he was thinking what could this woman really have to say about a man's game?! I could have taken it wrong though, you never know!

Registration Process

Why does the registration process have to be so difficult? It is especaially difficult for us journalism majors who have to hunt down these codes. I'm am so tired of professors who don't check their email, don't keep their office hours, and don't answer phones. On top of that I have to try to meet with an advisor who, when not sick, can only meet with students on friday morning when I am wanting to sleep in. Maybe all of this is just a huge conspiracy that the university has come up with in order to make us stay here longer!

Libra

On friday I will be 22! So not a big deal, but people make you feel like you have to celebrate. I don't know why. 21 was a big deal and yes I went all out! But 22? I've kinda started "celerating" already... that's if you count eating a piece of cake everyday the week of your b-day! I'm sure I'll regret it later when my jeans don't fit but that's the beauty of it.... I'm 22... It'll just come right off! RIGHT????? :\
