Capping It Up

Posted by Emilie Ehrman in My Pas de Deux. No Comments

29th February

As I prepare to graduate in a short 64 days, I am chin-deep in several projects, two of which are capstones for my two majors – that’s right, two majors means two projects! My two capstone projects are very different from each other.

My Public Relations Capstone: Digital Media Project

A communication major can choose a few different options when planning their capstone project. Most PR students, such as myself, create some sort of public relations project. I am creating a Facebook page and website and editing the business card for my client, Veterinary Medical Hospital (who just so happens to be my father).

Little Jessica (my thoughts personified) is often susceptible to a number of Procrastination’s Internet thugs, leaving me unable to, oh, write the paper that’s due Tuesday. The Procrastination Gang is a menacing bunch, isn’t it? And I only included five of them.

I have to say, I’m unusually afflicted by Procrastination at the moment. I started writing this comic last week, and only finished it now. I’m not even that busy, I just don’t want to do anything.
