I was a big Kardashian fan. I thought they were fun and fabulous and I looked past all their plastic surgery (yes, Kim, we’ve noticed the changes) and saw a richer and more extreme version of dysfunctional families everywhere.
Their money grubbing ways were a little gross, but I watched their show and bought many a tabloid so I wasn’t totally against their empire. However this latest “wedding” and its 4 hour tv special and reported $17 million dollar profit margin for Kim Kardashian and that big troll with an underbite didn’t sit well with me. Khloe and Llamar’s wedding was crazy enough, but they’re still married- and seem to really enjoy each other, so everyone let it slide because they didn’t totally degrade their fan base and major institutions like marriage. Oh Kimmy, I hope this is a sign you will soon be leaving my television screen and magazine covers so I can go back to buying tabloids and following famous people who are actually doing something, like Kate Middleton.
I sometimes find it hard to keep up with my blog when things around the world are so important. I can blog about Kate Middleton’s wardrobe or Kardashian antics, but it’s days like yesterday September 11, 2011 that shock my back to reality. Nothing else matters. Nothing in this world is as precious as a life, and so so many were lost ten years ago in New York City, Washington D.C. and Shanksville, PA.
My grandpa was a long time FDNY veteran and lost so many of his friends and brothers on that day. He was not alone in losing. The images of the firemen of that day haunt me as they stoically carried up to 80 lbs. of gear up to the impact zone of the towers. I just want to remember those poor sweet people who were going to work and never came home. Those office workers who were not equipped to fight for their lives in the wake of terrorist attacks and those firemen who showed unrivaled bravery as they gracefully and calmly walked towards the towers probably confident that they would not make it home. I hope anyone who can donate can give money to help support the families who were robbed of these beautiful souls. We will never forget their memory, we will teach and tell anyone who will listen who these people were and tell them about their wonderful lives and not detail that horrible day when they were lost. My heart is so heavy with the memory of that awful day, but I will always smile thinking of the amazing men and women who banded together and ultimately rest in these hallowed grounds.
After 6-8 failed RedBox attempts, I mosied on over to the “free movie” section of Comcast’s Xfinity On Demand. There I found a few flops from the Lifetime network, not a big shock, but I also found Religulous by Bill Maher. My boyfriend, my roommates and I sat down to watch it and it was so interesting. I love watching, listening to or reading things that spur intellectual conversations. We’re all usually so casual when we watch t.v. and between The Hills and Family Guy we usually just laugh and let ourselves be entertained by a one way track of media. Anyway the conversations were enthralling and the content was so interesting yet acceptable for our friend group and its diverse religious views. I recommend it, it was a good watch!
I am officially done with my college career! This Tuesday, July 19th I presented my campaign presentation and closed the book on my four years here at The University of Tennessee. Perfect.
I included a little picture of my team, we went by the name Blue Print, and we “won” the client pitch and were chosen as best campaign! My group also received the honors of Best Creative, Best Research, and Best Presenter- my colleague Ebony Jones. I’m so thrilled to be done with school and to have ended it on a high note!
We all worked very hard to create what we presented on Tuesday, and although the judges were more opinionated and less objective than we were expected, everyone made it out alive! I’m happy to be home on my couch and back on the job hunt with the hard work of this summer behind me!
My boyfriend just influenced a more creative side to my words that I am lucky to publish! I have to work towards thinking of quality posts that could potentially be industry specific to my field of advertising. I will get there, eventually, however for now I think I’ll express the creativity of my beautiful sister Kirsten Morgan.
I am trying to get her some sort of website to showcase her art, while still protecting them from copyright and things of that nature. However, she is going into her junior year of college at Siena College in Upstate New York. She is exceptionally talented and has a beautiful eye for photography and catching the candids and emotions of my wonderful family, her friends, and her general scenery. I will for now just post photos she has on Facebook as to not crack into her private supply. So for now, here are a few of her lovely photographs. Enjoy!
I have a severe and untreatable condition, I cannot keep from changing my hairstyle or color! After years of highlighting and dying my formerly blonde locks (they began blonde and visited brown and black before settling on its now natural red), I decided to turn to cutting and trimming the length and my bangs. I last cut it in August of 2010 before I returned to college for my senior year. I loved it, and it has since grown out to a above-the-breast length, however recent images of the beautiful Glee star Dianna Agron have inspired me to take to the scissors once again. So, my rantings continue and I think I’ll cut my hair this week, I will post a photo if it does in fact happen!
Although I’m aware that almost no one reads this blog, and I’m worried the professor who assigned this blog to me can read my future posts, I’m back to blogging as I’m starting a new-ish chapter in my life.
In less than a month, I will be a college graduate getting my life together to move out to Denver, CO with my love. This blogging forum is going to be my release during my job search and move. I won’t write about anything specific, just about my goings about! I’m sure no one other than myself would enjoy these stories and rantings that I find ever humorous. Perhaps I can hone my blogging skills and add this to my resume, which is currently being shot out in batches of 10 to many fine establishments in the city of Denver in my quest for employment and funding for my impending skiing habit.
For now, what is going on in the land of Lindsay is that we have about a week left here at 1805 Highland which has been my college residence for the past 2 years. 2 years of living plus the fact that I may or may not be a mild hoarder has made the packing process difficult. The relief to a stressful move is obviously the reintroduction of the “Lost” series into my life. I originally watched seasons 1-5 on DVD the summer after sophomore year of college and caught up by the time season 6 aired. I love the show more now than I did then, and watching my roommate Shannon view all these mysteries and miracles for the first time is pretty wonderful and satisfying. Trey, my boyfriend, had only brought seasons 1 and 2 to the house and we are rapidly viewing the discs. I fear we will have finished season 2 before he even returns to Memphis and can send us season 3. Anyway, I will wait to cross that bridge as I cannot deal with the loss of my best friends (the Lost characters of course) another time.
I will update soon, probably to the dead air to which I now right.
