Awww the wonderful world of electronics, they help you with your homework, they show you funny videos and they also crash on you leaving you with no outlet to the online world!!! Anyway I am back now sorry about the long hiatis....
Today I got to class and to my surprise we had to all get in a circle and do stretches and make loud noises.... I am being completely serious, this is what I pay $500 a credit for to exercise. This was all an exercise to help people with public speaking but if you ask me it seemed like it was a bunch of filler because the professor had no content to actually teach us. This is so wrong!
Lately I have been encountering many problems on my social networking sites like facebook and LinkedIn. People I have not seen in years and people my fiancée has not seen in years are coming out of the woodwork and causing problems for us. Can't we all just get along I mean really is facebook becoming the new porno, the new chat rooms were mischievous things are to take place. Lets clean up our acts and let facebook be used like it's supposed to be use, for friendship and to connect with people and share our thoughts and ideas and feelings, not to poach on other people's lives and try to create drama!
I have been feeling really sick lately and today I feel worse, I am sorry that I broke my promise to write every day. I will try my hardest to never let that happen again. Im going to go to bed early tonight hopefully tomorrow I will be up and running again.
Yay dont we all love powerpoint!! not.... Well regardless of weather or not you like powerpoint everyone should know that your going to have to use it, probably sooner than you think so I thought I could share some things that I have learned and discovered about powerpoint presentations. The number one most important thing I know and cant stress enough to you is practice practice practice!! Honestly if you make a script and practice it you wont need to be looking at your powerpoint the entire time and neglecting your client. Clients like to make eye contact with you and know that you are talking to them and relating with them not ignoring them so you can stare at your powerpoint! Another thing I cant stress enough is powerpoint should just be highlights of what you want to talk about. Don't crowd the slides with tons of words because first of all who wants to read a bunch of data when you could just be telling them about it while they look at a pretty graph that describes what you are saying. Design your powerpoint, don't be boreing and go for a black backround with white font color, cmon your not going to grab anyones attention like that. Use similar font families and dont go overboard with sounds and funny fads or word drop in's remember this is still supposed to be professional. lastly have fun with this, who wants to sit through a stiff powerpoint presentation, I'm sure we have all done it but did you really like it or even pay attention to it, I would say NO!! So have fun and be creative, most importantly don't stress out about your slides, you should be close enough to the project your making slides for that you know all of the information you need to cover and talk about right?
Ya know one thing I have learned, or one thing that has been burned on my brain by my professors at State is how important it is to be on as many social networking sites as possible. Now with this being said, yes you should join as many sites as you can or enjoy to be a part of, but realistically, don't just join sites to join them. You do want to get your name out there and be in contact with many people but you don't want to be on a social networking site that you never visit and never contribute any content to, because then your just a name on someones list who they eventually delete, and no one wants to get deleted right? So lesson here is, yes join social networking sites, get your name, your brand out there and get as close to #1 on Google search for your name as you can but don't over do it otherwise people will get annoyed with your brand and then where do you go from there?
