Hi everyone! I’m Jacqueline DeVito, and I’m excited that Alex has asked me to blog with him for PRUnderground. I’ve been working here for about three weeks now, and I couldn’t be happier.
The funny thing is, I have no formal experience with this kind of “computer stuff.” I graduated in three and a half years (I’m very proud of that) from The University at Albanywith a Bachelors in US History and minor in Judaic studies. My main plan was to graduate and go to law school. However, I just was never motivated enough to actually apply. There was always the lingering thought of, “Do I really want to do this?” I’ve been legal assistants for various law firms between Poughkeepsie and Albany, but I just never was 100% happy.
Then came the magical day where I learned about PRUnderground, and I haven’t looked back since. I’m a self proclaimed nerd, and love social media and anything regarding my beloved Facebookand Twitter. Alex teases me about my unhealthy love for my BlackBerry and not his iphone, but I’m still able to tweet on the go. Plus, I’m not ready to live without my bbm (that’s “BlackBerry Messenger” for all you iphone lovers).
In the broad scheme of things, I’m still young, and a lot of my friends are either still in school, or have moved back to their respective towns. I love how I can communicate with all my friends and sorority sisters at anytime, thanks to all the social networks we have today. Just the thought of sitting down and writing a letter to someone seems archaic and odd to me. Plus, aren’t stamps like the price of a latte now?
Honestly, I find writing about myself odd, and hope one day to have a biographer to do this stuff for me (I’ll keep my fingers crossed) but I will bear the burden just this once. I’m addicted to Starbucks, Twitter, and shameless shopping. I am an encyclopedia of random facts, and like getting on my soapbox about religious topics. My ipod is full of Rat-Pack music, as I’m convinced I was born in the wrong decade. I’m pretty amazing at Jeopardy, and would love to give Ken Jennings a run for his money. Deep down, I’m still a sorority girl at heart, and continue to craft and make shirts like the good ol’ days.
Q: How many sorority girls does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A: One. The rest are too busy making a tee shirt about it.
Peace, Love, and Tweets!
