As much as I love the days where I am relaxing with my friends, with nothing that HAS to be down, I also love the days where I am constantly busy and have my “to do list” ready in my planner. I feel like within the PR department, “free time” isn’t exactly something a lot of us have. Between work, school, outside projects, and PRSSA I feel like I have little to no free time. My free time goes to my friends and sleeping or working out. After reading a classmates blog, I knew exactly what I wanted to talk about.
Working in the PR world, you are constantly on the go. I feel like we crave the stress and craziness of it all. Certain people cannot handle stress, but sometimes if I am not stressed, I feel like something is wrong with me. If I am not in class or at work, my phone is in my hand or close by at all times. I may be texting, checking my Facebook or Twitter. I get a lot of random followers that are PR organizations or professionals, and I always will follow them back. Most of my tweets come from organizations or professionals tweeting constantly. A lot of the catch lines are extremely interesting and I cannot help but to read it, especially if it has advice for future college graduates. They really like to target us, because they know we will read it.
My parents always ask me, “do you ever put your phone down, Cassie?”, and I usually just ignore them and keep on updating myself with what is new. I feel empty when I cannot check my latest tweets, it may be just me, I could just be anxious and never sit still, I don’t know. I guess I really have two points to this blog: in this industry, we crave what’s “new” and “now” and the stress of it all, and that cell phones keep us in contact with the world on a daily basis and it would be hard to not be all caught up on what is going on.
