My Advice for Angie Rogers Class

My advice to you for Angie Roger’s class is the list provided below. If you master this list, you will be guaranteed an A in her class.

  1. Take her class and do not drop it!! You can get an easy A if you do the work she wants
  1. Do your blogs every week. Pick a night to always do the weekly blogs on. I picked Sunday, just because. This way you do not have to play catch up on your blog post because it can be very time consuming if you try to do them all at once.
  1. When you do your group project, pick people that you think will be fun and want to complete there work. My group had fun at our meetings and we even had cookouts and meals together.
  1. Get an early start on your portfolio!! Angie will help you with it and will walk you step by step through the process. Get all your documents and links together and she will easily show you how.
  1. Turn your assignments in on time. It is the first step to getting an A.
  1. Lastly, Angie wants all of her students to get an A. She wants you to come in for help and is willing to help you. This is the teacher that you want for English 304! Take Angie! She is great!

Today Angie gave our class the day off . My group deceided to meet in the library during class time to finish our part of the progress report. Our group has created a blog for Shelby to use.

My Group

My group’s name is Rethink Yo Style. It consists of five people. We have two architecture majors, one marketing major, one management major, and one finance major. As you can see, our group is very well rounded. As a group we decided that it would be most beneficial to divide all of our assignments up into individual task according to our majors. Each member would work on their individual part separately. At the next week’s meeting, we would collaborate together what each of us had done. Some individual work may have needed more help that others, but our group had no problem with offering to help each other out. We got every task done together as a group. In fact we met one week as a part of our weekly meeting at Jessica’s house for a cookout and to work on our proposal. Not only did we get a lot of the proposal done, we learned more about each other. I can say that our group is very close and we would want to work together again. I really like my group!

Mock Interveiw

I thought my mock interview went very well. I actually was not worried about my interview at all because fortunately, I have grown up my whole childhood life around talking with other people. As a kid I would talk to many people that were generations older than me and therefore I am very comfortable with talking to older people. If I was to be interviewed by someone who was older than me but in my same generation, the interview would be more difficult. For some reason, I get extremely nervous around my peers. I am guessing there will be a 70% chance that the real interviewer for my first job will be someone in a different generation than myself.

Two thing that helped me have a successful interview was having my materials ready early and being on time for the interview. Both of theses helped boost my confidence prior to meeting with Angie. I felt smart, organized and ready to go. By setting myself up for a successful interview on the front end, allowed me to stay calm and answer any questions with careful thought.

Overall I am very impressed with my interview. As easy as I thought the interview was , I still need more practice. I need to be prepared to answer any questions that one might ask. More practice can never be a bad thing.

My Favorite City

This week, I have the opportunity to write about anything I want. I have decided to write about where I am from. I am from Nashville, Tennessee. Nashville is a great place to live. It is located in the central basin which means that the city is surrounded with hills and mountains. Nashville is the capital of Tennessee. It filled with history and country music. The Country Music Hall of Frame, Predators Hockey Arena, Titans Station, Ryman Auditorium, and most country bars are all within walking distance of each other all downtown by the river. Downtown Nashville even still has some old cobblestone streets and restored civil war forts. Minutes from downtown Nashville is the suburbs. The traffic is not bad and easy to understand for visitors. Don’t get me wrong, Nashville is not a small city. In fact it consists of more than 545,000 people just in one county! From where I live, in the suburbs, I am surrounded by four different malls and many different areas of town. It takes no more than fifteen to twenty minutes to get to each different part of town. Downtown, depending on the route you take, takes approximately twenty minutes. I consider this to be perfect timing especially since you go through a lot of traffic to get there. I am very proud to say that I am from Nashville. I am eager to finish college and go back to a city that I love. I can’t wait to experience Nashville when I am twenty- one and also to experience it as an older woman. I am thinking about renting a house near downtown with some friends and going to graduate school in Nashville. I love my city and I am eager to learn more about it. There is much I really don’t know.

Favorite Presentation

My favorite presentation was Stacey’s. She was very passionate about her presentation and it was very well thought out. I really liked all the facts she told the class about Boulder. Every thing she said held my attention and it made me want to go there. I have been to many cites in the area such a Aspen, Denver, Telluride, Cresten Butte, Gunnison, and Montrose, however, I have never been to Boulder. I really like Colorado and as you can tell, I have been to many other cities in the state. Stacey is right about how Clemson, South Carolina is a complete different culture. It fascinates me that Stacey chose to come to a small town across the United States for college. I can image that South Carolina was a complete culture shock and I admire her for staying with it. She seems like a well traveled person and I admire that also. Overall, Stacey’s presentation was very well done. A+ to Stacey.
