Public Relations - FFTL Link-Up

Guys, I'm usually super on the ball with this link-up, but things at work yesterday were crazy busy, and also - it's wedding week for my sister, so we've been doing all sorts of stuff to finish getting everything ready! So it's comin' at y'all a bit later than normal today, but that's alright. The link-up stays open for an entire week anyways, so we've got plenty of time to all get this one done! Today's topics are:

First major in college
First date success story

First major in college
Well actually, I only had one! I know some people switch back and forth between two or three majors (and sometimes even more than that!), but I was pretty firm in knowing what I was going to do. I went into college already knowing what my major would be, as well as my minor. I was going to get my degree in Communication, with a special emphasis in Public Relations, with a minor in Youth Ministry. One of the major reasons I picked Flagler was actually because of their Youth Ministry minor! And then once I got there, I realized that I wasn't going to get enough hours to graduate with just those two things, so I added on an additional minor in Advertising. 

It's her wedding week!! :)
First date success story
Honestly, I didn't really date anyone else other than Jeff . I mean, I went on a few other "dates," but they were simple and casual and didn't amount to much, so they hardly count. Jeff was my first and only "real" boyfriend, and now we're engaged! So obviously that worked out well :) So our first date was also pretty casual as well though. Y'all know we met online, so we had been texting, emailing, chatting online and talking on the phone for a few weeks, then one Tuesday morning he just randomly asked if I wanted to meet him for lunch! So in the middle of our workday, we met for a quick lunch at Zaxby's. I was definitely nervous, but he seemed so calm and relaxed, so that helped me calm down a lot too. Our conversation came easy, and my nervousness melted away pretty quickly. We already knew so much about each other, that we already had so much to talk about! I found myself wishing that the quick hour wouldn't have flown by so fast, and that I could have spent much more time talking to this cute, freckly boy! (Side note: we ended up having lunch together that week two more times!) Oh, and yes, he paid for our first "date." :)

My first major was Psychology. I then tried communications and then finally ended up in Criminal Justice with a minor in Psychology.

I love that you have only really dated Jeff! So cute! :)

I'm glad he paid for the first date. :) Very important! I've had girlfriends go on super awkward dates before - and the guy wanted to split the check! It's not a date if the guy doesn't pay. :)
