MIA from ADA

My life in Ada Vegas.
Since I have been gone from Ada for a week and a day, I don’t have much to say about my life at ONU (except for I am starting to miss that little village). I would like to take time to write about the things I have experienced outside of A-Town. First, I want to brag to everyone about my time in Vegas, and then I want to share a little something special from my interview.

My two friends and our momma’s arrived in Vegas around 10pm on Friday. All we wanted was a big juicy hamburger, so we found a restaurant open 24 hours called Tequila Bar and Grill. By the time our food arrived and we were downing a giant fishbowl drink, it was 5am our time. It grossed me out that I was consuming this much at this time, but then again it didn’t bother me too much.

The next three days, we took time to explore Sin City and the strip and take lots of pictures. The weather was terrible the first two days, cold and overcast, but the third day it brightened up. We went to the Hard Rock Casino, where the Real World cast is staying this season, and visited plenty of other casinos, shops and restaurants. We stayed at the Paris Hotel and checked out the club scene in our hotel, so we didn’t have to go too far. We saw Holly Madison, star of Holly’s World from E! That was cool. We took some tequila shots. Not so cool. I hate tequila, it makes my throat burn. When my friend Suzanne wiped out and almost knocked over a standing heater outside and burnt the club down, we decided it was probably our time to leave.

The last day in Vegas, we went to the Stratosphere, where we basically hung off the side of the building 871 feet in the air on a roller coaster. I almost pooped my pants. Anyways, then we ate at the Eiffel Tower, which was so fancy and so delicious. We ended our trip with a night at Planet Hollywood’s night club called Koi, where it was $20 open bar all night for girls. Needless to say, the flight home was no fun the next morning.

Basically, we walked around a lot to see all the beautifully designed and decorated buildings, drank all day and night, lost our money on slots and rapid roulette, and did some drunk dancing at the Vegas night clubs. It was awesome.

I had my interview with Macy’s two days after I got home, and I thought it went pretty well. The directors I interviewed with seem very impressed and interested in my social media internship experience and knowledge, and I told them it's just going to get better because of this social media course. Macy's is a growing presence online and just got a Facebook in 2009. They plan to do more with their Facebook and other social media sites in the future. I hope this can give me an advantage over other candidates!
