Coffee Monster is my Spirit Animal

Great news everyone! I found my spirit animal. Don’t judge. If people can pick unicorns I can pick him.

It never says in the movie (Monsters University) but I am pretty certain this guy is a PR major. Look in his giant eyes and see the mix of terror and espresso. I promise that at least one of those is a vanilla soy latte (also known as the life force). And back in his room he has a pint of Coffee Coffee Buzz Buzz Buzz stored in his roommates freezer.

That poor little monster is realizing that someday he will have to go out into the world and show what he learned in these four years and that someone at some point is not going to like it. Not only will they not like it, they might even hate it. Poor little coffee monster is headed to the library to pour over books and articles that he is constantly reminded are out of date by the time they are published because the big wide world is spinning way to fast for any coffee to help him.

Eventually coffee monster will realize that everything will be ok one way or another everything works out like it is meant to as long as he works his tail off and keeps putting his work out there into the world. They can’t all be misses right?


Miss America Misleading America?

Happy hump day to all! Here is what every Wednesday needs; humor, fact-finding, and an honest comment from Donald Trump thrown in there that you can’t really terribly mad about because you already knew the truth.  At least he didn’t hide it. For the record, I’m not anti pageant, if that is what you want to do with your life then go for it and make the most of it!

This is more about the convoluted steps an organization has gone through to create the numbers they want, knowing the wording is misleading to the majority of viewers.  I am getting a degree in public relations. We study how to craft the best messages for our cause, and I didn’t catch the wording either.  Congratulations Miss America public relations department, way to keep it above-board and transparent with those numbers, you charitable organization you.

Call it what it is people, that is all I am saying. You all weigh the  numbers and the facts and go out and check facts decide for yourself.  I love reading comments and responses so let me know what you think!

Here is the link to the “John Oliver: Miss America Pageant” video, it will open in a new window. If you would like the link to paste into your browser it is at the bottom.

Disclaimer: there is some language, majority of which is edited out. The video is worth watching and hilariously unsettling all at once.
