The Visual Communication Technology Organization...

I haven't written anything in a while.
I've had an incredibly hectic semester (which is still going on!)
For at least a few more weeks anyway!

I just wanted to give a little shoutout to VCTO though.

VCTO is the Visual Communication Technology Organization.
It's an org on campus for my major.
(And for any other majors too!)
I love it so much.

VCTO changed my life.
Not in the "It stopped me from doing drugs," or "It helped me overcome my life trials," kind of changes, but an amazing kind of change that I'm not even sure I know how to describe. 

I joined during the spring semester of my freshman year of college.
I wasn't really sure if I really wanted to be there or not, but for some reason I stuck around.

I'm not sure if it was the moment when the upperclassmen started giving me advice about the VCT professors and about different classes, or when I attended the group trip to Photoshop World, but I knew that VCTO was something great.

At the end of my freshman year, I ran for an executive board position, and won!
I was now the official secretary of VCTO for Fall 2012!


Being one of the youngest exec members had its perks!
I was able to hang out with older students & really learn so much from all of them!

After my short run as secretary, I got promoted to VP for the next semester.

Little did I know that VP would turn into PRESIDENT though.

I have learned so much in my short term as president. But, I've seriously poured my heart and soul into the organization, and I really think the success of VCTO is reflecting that.

The hours I spend working on stuff for VCTO takes up a good majority of the very little free time I have, but it's so worth it.

In one semester, we've raised our attendance rate from about 3 non-exec members to 16 non-execs! We've made great progress with out website, AND we've even got two jobs working with other on-campus orgs! Not to mention we managed to pull off the most successful fundraiser in VCTO history within a span of 24 hours.

I'm so proud of my entire team of exec board members.
We've all given up so much to offer up a place where all VCT majors can be nerdy and make fun of comic sans together :)

I've really gained so much from running an organization.
I'm so incredibly thankful for this experience, and I don't ever want it to end.
Even though I get ridiculously stressed out most of the time, I love it.

I love being a mentor to the underclassmen... a good role model...someone they can look up to.

The feeling of knowing you're making a difference in so many peoples' lives is incredibly rewarding.

VCTO is the greatest, and I just want to share the awesome opportunities I've received from VCTO with everyone else!

Phew! Okay... That was my little rant for the day :) (or month... Haha)

THIS IS THE LAST "Food for THOUGHTS :)" I'm putting on my blog, because I think I've outgrown that saying... :)

Have a good Thursday!

Why Blair Waldorf Is Perfect...

Seriously though.
She's perfect.
She's a real princess, without a physical throne.

She is absolutely fabulous.

She ruled the upper east side.
New York City is her throne.
She's a born leader.

She is brilliant at scheming.

You're probably not worthy of her company…
But she'll put up with you.

Her life, even though she's had some tough times, has still be like a fairytale…

Blair Waldorf + Nate Archibald
They dated since kindergarten…
It was over a decade-long romance…

They had their lives planned together…

They had so much fun together...

Seriously, look how perfect

But at least they were able to be friends after they parted ways

Blair Waldorf + Dan Humphrey
They started out as enemies…
But then a spark flared…

Dan & Blair started the perfect friendship…

With a kiss…

And even though it didn't work out 
like Dan had wanted it to…

He was always a shoulder to lean on…

And their friendship was pretty perfect…

They even had a short romance for a little while...

Blair Waldorf + Prince Louis Grimaldi
She's literally so lucky…
A prince just walked up to her…

Now, this is what I call a real Cinderella story…
The shoe bit… really…

And they started the cutest romance story ever…
Blair on her way to being legit royalty…

Of course they became engaged…
Because, of course.. it's Blair!

They even got married… Awk…
Cause I mean, we all know she's meant 
to be with with Chuck…
It ends though, unfortunately for Louis...

Blair Waldorf + Chuck Bass
Seriously, they literally are always drawn back together…
They were so on & off…

But always seemed to find each other again…

Seriously though…
Does it even get cuter than this?!

Oh wait, it does…

They are so in love…

And it's absolutely perfect…

So perfect.
I love it.

Blair Waldorf = Perfection.

You Can Count On Me Like 1-2-3...

One: I'm going through a Bruno Mars phase.
I am loving him right now.

(Listen to this!)

Two: This is still related to Bruno Mars…
He & I have the same birthday!

Pretty cool, eh?

That day is in 14 days.

From now until October 8th, I urge you to use the hashtag "#Gina21" on Twitter.

Thank you. Lawlz.

It's my third favorite day of the year! :)

I don't really know what I'm gonna do for my birthday yet, but I'm sure I'll come up with something.

So I guess three:
I've been so busy lately.
I can't wait until things eventually slow down.
If that ever actually happens.



That's really all that's on my mind.





I'm done, I swear.



Have a great week.

And You're Gonna Hear Me Roar...

My 21st birthday is in 21 days.
I can't believe another year has come & gone!

However, I feel like my 21st birthday is going to be a little different than most people's.

It'll probably go a little something like this:

October 8, 2013


(Okay, early class in the morning.. time for bed)


(Living the commuter life… Chilling in the union)

(Sitting in Tech Comm… Being bored)

(Getting my new sideways driver's license!! Weee)

(Script Analysis class…)

(Work all night :'/ Wahh )

(Off work & time to sleep again…)


There MIGHT just be a couple times thrown in there where I can grab something quick to eat. Haha

We All Need Saving...

And whether or not it's right or wrong,
You'll do what you will do.
When the cloud in the sky starts to pour
And your life is just a storm you're braving.
Well, don't tell yourself you can't lean on someone else.
'Cause we all need saving.

I'm nearing the end of my co-op & I couldn't have asked for a better first co-op experience.

I've worked with many nice, experienced people who have spent a great deal of time in the industry.
Not to mention getting to network with people outside of my company here!

Networking = Key
It's all about who you know!

Well, at least to get you a little head start!

Anyway, I've really been thankful for the experience I've gained & I can't wait to keep moving forward in my educational career, and really soak in as much information while I can!

It's so weird to think that in less than a month I'm going to be starting my junior year of college!
Time really does fly!
I'm excited to see where this year leads me & to find out what's in store for me! :D

I hope you all had a wonderful July! :)
I know I did!

La Da Da Dum, Da Dum, Dum...

It's June.
And June is almost over

I've been so busy lately.

Just looking at my calendar for this month gives me a headache.

I don't know how I was able to do so much.
But, I guess it's sometimes nice to have a full schedule, because then you can never say you're "bored," because the few times you are free, you make the best of it by relaxing.

I really appreciate and value my relaxation time.
And even the time I make for sleeping.

No more of those all-nighters during the summer, just because you can.
But instead, being ready for bed by 10, and asleep by 11. That's my life…

It's almost 11…
So, it's time for bed.
Hopefully I'll find some time throughout this week to post more :)

Have a super stellar week :)

These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things (From YouTube)...

(This song inspired the title)

Phoebe from the first episode of FRIENDS

I don't spent much time on YouTube, but I've definitely acquired some favorites throughout the years.
Here are some of my selections:

"Pokemon In Real Life"
This is just so funny and so incredibly accurate.

"Grammar Police"
This is the story of my life...

"Starships - A Cappella"
I love a cappella! And this song! I'm obsessed.

"Sweet Brown - Remix"
The auto tune remix of this makes it ten times funnier! Haha

"Remembering The 90s"
So much nostalgia! 

"Rare F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Documentary"
I'm obsessed with FRIENDS! 
If you are too, I suggest taking 50 minutes out of your day to watch this!

"Major League Dugout Stomp"
I filmed this one, but it's so funny! I love Major League!

"28 Cartoon Theme Songs in 7 Minutes"
Major flashbacks!

"Man of 100 Voices"
This guy's got talent! Haha

"Cookie the Little Penguin"
I'm in love with Penguins :)

"Live Lip-Dub Proposal - Marry You"
This video makes me cry every time! It's so adorable and I love the song!

"Making Movies Jealous - Proposal"
This had to have taken so much time and creativity! I just love it!

"The Creep"
I just can't get enough of The Lonely Island!

"I Won't Give Up (Cover)"

Check out more of my pal Seth Rinehart's music on YouTube here!

"Wakko's America"
You better believe this has helped me at random times throughout my life!

"Citibank Identity Theft"
This commercial used to crack me up! Lawlz

"Citibank Identity Theft"
I dare you to watch this and not crack up laughing,
or have this song stuck in your head for eternity…

So, I hope you enjoy all of these videos.
I feel like if you're bored enough, you'll really enjoy the fact that you now have something to consume more of your time!

I've gotta be at work in less than seven hours, so I guess it's time for bed!

P.S. What's the capital of Arkansas?

Madness Is The Gift That Has Been Given To Me...

Some say being "creative" or being an "artist" is a waste of time… Or that you'll never go anywhere.

This "madness" that has been given to me,
I'm so thankful for.

I'd rather be crazy with creativity, than anything else in this world.

My favorite is a quote from Alice in Wonderland:

Mad Hatter: "Have I gone mad?"
Alice:  "I'm afraid so. You're entirely bonkers. But I'll tell you a secret. All the best people are."

I know I'm crazy, but I don't mind.
I just wish people understood.

Words Get Trapped In My Mind...

Words get trapped in my mind…
Sorry I don't take the time to feel the way I do.
'Cause the first day you came into my life,
My time ticks around you.
But then I need your voice,
As a key to unlock all the love that's trapped in me.
So tell me when it's time to say I love you.
All I want is you to understand,
That when I take your hand it's cause I want to.
We are all born in a world of doubt.
But there's not doubt, I figured out, I love you.

Sometimes I go through random Green Day phases.
I can't help it.

I seriously don't even know where to begin.
So much stuff is happening right now.


Nothing has really been "Ugly" though…
Not that I know of…

I have three more days left here.
Three more days of dorm life.
Three more days of being a sophomore.

I'm not mad about it though.
This summer is going to be great!
I hope so anyways!

I'm trying to focus on the "now" as opposed to the past or the future.
Now is what I can control.
And I'm trying to take control of my life.
I've got goals & I need to make sure they happen!

All in all, it's been a good year!
Thanks BG, it's been fun :)
See ya in a few months ;P

Have a great rest of the week!
& good luck to anyone else with finals left!
(I've got three more before I'm free…)
