Never (Ever) Give Up

Lauren Blackwell

By: Morgan Dixon

One of the most important things I’ve learned as graduation comes closer is to never give up. I’ve had so many doors close on me these past few months that I felt myself start to lose hope. I was so stressed I thought I would cry at the drop of a pen. It was making me feel very negative about such a positive time of my life.

 

1.     Know that bad days are lessons learned

It’s a simple truth that you are going to have bad days. It’s YOUR choice of how you want to handle said bad day. You can let it get to you, or you can let it improve you. This past semester has been the hardest semester I’ve ever been through, and I’m not talking class wise. This semester I lost a friend, found out my grandpa’s life doesn’t have much left to it, and saw my boyfriend lose his grandpa. With so much on my plate, I still managed to work full time and pass all five of my classes. I owe it all to letting myself go with the flow and let the bad days make me better.

 

2.     Know that hard work pays off

I work full time and go to school full time and it’s all worth it. There are many times where my days are so packed with homework, work and school that I feel like I could pull all my hair out, but I don’t. Because it all pays off. I’ve had moments where I’ve been so stressed that I didn’t know what to do with myself but I got through it. And it’s helped me more than hurt me. Now I can say that I am good with time management, I work hard, and I can multitask. And those are all things you I won’t learn in school. They just might be more important than anything I will learn in school.

 

3.     Know that closed doors mean new opportunities

I believe in the magic of timing and that everything happens for a reason. At the beginning of the semester I didn’t get the job I interviewed for and wanted so bad. And I thought it was the end of the world, for a week. I started my last semester a week after finding out I didn’t get the job, and it all made sense. I had way too much homework to have been able to work at that job. And I knew that it wasn’t meant to be because the world was protecting me from getting in over my head. And now I have a few interviews lined up for better jobs, and everything has worked itself out.

 

Things don’t come easy in life. You have to work extremely hard to get what you want. You also have to be able getting told no the first few times, and take it like a grain of salt. It’s hard, but it’s oh so worth it in the end. 

Don’t Burn Out

Lauren Blackwell

Going through college is rough. Half the time you are unsure of what you are doing, most of the time you are hungry and hoping to come across free food and 100 percent of the time, you are stressed because there’s about 101 things on your to-do list that need to get done by midnight. It’s a constant cycle of “just get me through this week.”

 

Being in the Reynolds School surrounded by many other students pushing themselves as hard as I do, it’s easy to forget that you can burn out.

 

When so-and-so just landed the most amazing internship after just finishing two other internships and winning the “Best-ever-at-everything” award, it’s easy to jump to the conclusion of “wow, I’m such a slacker.” But I’ve learned to stop comparing myself to others. Instead, I celebrate my peers’ accomplishments, which helps keep me focused on my own goals rather than someone else’s.

 

I’ve learned to celebrate myself and my accomplishments. It’s hard to take a step back and realize all that I’ve accomplished when I’m getting a new project each for multiple classes.

 

When I finish a big project or at least a big chunk of a project, I reward myself with a short binge-session on Netflix or maybe that Target trip I’ve been dying to take for no reason. These rewards have helped me to avoid burning out.

 

Burn out happens when you push yourself so hard that you’ve stressed your mind and body to the limits and you no longer enjoy doing what you’ve poured yourself into. I don’t want to lose my passion for creative work, which is why I take pride in my work and reward myself for my progress, no matter how big or small.

A community coming together

My favorite music producer, Axwell, once said, “music is one of the most beautiful things in the world because it brings people together.”  This statement resonates with me as my dream job is to be a strategic communicator within the music industry.  I have attended several music festivals in the past few years but most recently I was fortunate to attend Ultra Music Festival in Miami.  It was when Axwell was closing the Ultra main stage last year when he made his statement.  As I attended this year, I took what he said into consideration as I analyzed every aspect of the festival.  

 

Now, you may be wondering, what does this have to do with Wolf Pack Relations?  I became an account executive last semester and my first client was Off Beat Arts and Music Festival.  It was an inaugural charity event hosted throughout downtown Reno.  I was ecstatic when I was assigned to this client because I was given the opportunity to work with professionals from various associations including the Glenn Group and Dotted & Crossed.  It’s amazing to think about how my skills in time management, client relations, and overall communication improved from this opportunity.  The professionals served as colleagues but also as mentors.  I learned so much from this experience in the context of strategic communications but also that a lot goes into running a festival.  Needless to say, I was anxious to take my experience and view major festivals with a new perspective.  

 

Ultra Miami attracts 100,000 attendees from over 100 different countries around the world.  It was three days of good music, good food, and good people that provided an unforgettable experience.  After it concluded, I took a minute to really look at the festival in depth.  My question was simply, how did this become what it is today?  Typically, music festivals don’t start with 100,000 attendees (except Woodstock, but that was different).  I looked into it and found that Ultra Miami started in 1999 with one small stage.  Pretty much every other festival started the exact same way.  Therefore, I thought back to Off Beat and viewed it in an entirely new way.


Everything has to start somewhere but that’s not even the main point that I want to make.  Thinking back to when Axwell said, “music is one of the most beautiful things in the world because it brings people together.”  This statement goes beyond who shows up.  Off Beat was small but I had the privilege of working with professionals from several different firms in the Reno area.  The festival was hosted among local bars and clubs, we had almost every media outlet in the area covering the event, and the community was thrilled that a concept like this was establishing in Reno.  Whether or not Off Beat grows to attract several thousand people doesn’t necessarily matter.  The inspiring thing about it is that it brings people from all areas of the community together to share ideas and culture.
