During the second semester of my sophomore year of college, I decided that I wanted to explore the major of Public Relations while maintaining my Multimedia Journalism major. In all honesty, I didn’t expect to like it as much as I do. In fact, it was a filler class at first and I just thought people in PR had their lives together.
Shortly after becoming a part of the PR family, I absolutely fell in love. I was becoming fully interested in my classes, trying to engage with all things, reading more blogs and many other social media aspects. But I’m starting to have my own public relations crisis: I can’t stop! I find that within everything I do, I always tend to find the PR in it.
My mom was taking a picture of my brother a couple of days ago. I noticed that one of the buttons on his shirt was missing, his shirt was bulky in some parts, and his belt wasn’t properly centered. I stopped my mom, so that I could help my brother fix himself. He had to look great for his picture, right? They both rolled their eyes, “You are so particular,” said my mom. Me, particular? When did this happen? I stopped to think. Public Relations has changed my life. This isn’t even half of the PR I’ve noticed in me. I see things so differently than I did before, and notice things that some people don’t. I read news differently and listen to company stories differently. Not only this, but I’ve noticed that I have so many thoughts and ideas running through my head almost 24/7–something that I never noticed before about myself.
Public Relations has changed my life. I am a crazy PR person. I’m more structured, but at the same time more all over the place than I was before. It’s not a bad thing at all; I’m just having my own “PR Crisis”.
