Welcome. My creative cleverness has escaped me at the moment, so I’m beginning the very first entry of my blog with the very same word Sara Brady began hers – welcome. You’ve stumbled upon the ramblings of Sara Brady Public Relations’ first intern. How exciting! As a public relations junior at the University of Florida (in the strongest possible terms, Go Gators!), I can hardly compete with Sara’s carefully and articulately written “Coffee Break.” In fact, I don’t even drink coffee! So for now I’ll just call this part of Coffee Break that Sara has been so gracious to lend to me, "Social Solitude."
Where on earth did I dig up such an obscure name? Well, I’ve always been a fan of oxymorons so hey, why not use one now? The vast field of public relations requires a great big toolkit of social strategy, and this first official blog entry is taking countless hours of quiet solitude to complete. Come to think of it, I wouldn’t name this private “corner” of Coffee Break anything else. It’s a stretch, trust me I know.
Needless to say, I’m without a doubt excited to start interning at this great firm. I’ve only been here for about a week and a half, I can already tell it’s going to be a great summer.
But before I leave and get back to work, I’ll leave you with a witty quote to chew over. After all, what’s a blog without a little amusement?
“A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.”
- Lao Tzu
Well, there you have it. I’ve taken my first step here at Sara Brady Public Relations. My first blog entry. I truly hope it hasn’t been too painful. :wink:
