Hey ya’ll! With General Conference coming up I created my own page for taking notes and thought I’d share it with you too! In the spirit of General Conference I hope that you are all getting prepared and ready to receive answers to your prayers. I have seen Heavenly Father’s love and blessings in my life and can’t wait to hear the good word this weekend.
On a side note, I also thought I would share a story of my favorite General Conference. Four years ago I moved to Rexburg, Idaho to go to BYUI (of course)! Just like many of you are doing I’m sure, you’re inviting your FHE family or the cute boys across the street to watch conference and eat delish cinnamon rolls. My apartment had a variety of friends who came over, one being my husband, Clayton.
I had been hanging out with Clayton and his roommates for about a week now. Nothing major had happened between us yet, just good ol’ friends. As the opening hymn to the Sunday afternoon session started I received some inspiration that was very unexpected, but would forever change my life. It was so life-like I thought someone had come over and whispered in my ear but when I looked no one was there. That day I learned Clayton was going to be my husband. Heavenly Father said to me, “This is your husband.”
That was is it, plain and simple. I am so glad that I had prepared myself for that conference weekend to receive that revelation. Marrying Clayton was the best decision I have ever made and my life has changed 180 percent (for the better) because of it. I am so proud to call him my husband.
If you prepare yourself for this conference, whether or not if you have pressing questions, the Lord will reveal himself to you and pour out his blessings. I hope you all have a wonderful conference!

Today is not my day, I am a scatter-brained mess! (when I first posted this the title said, Y’all of Ya’ll?) Maybe it’s because tomorrow is my Friday and I’m kinda freaking out because of all the stuff I need to do but wont be able to? Yep, that’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it! Also, I am only sharing these things with you because I am SO humble 😉
1. Misspelling words-ALL DAY- and having my friends put me on blast(I am grateful that my name was never mentioned)
2. Leaving the oven on (sadly that was is pretty common, Clayton always says I am going to burn down the house)
3. Slipping up on my SEO copy writing
4. Leaving my keys in the mail box
…need I say more? Thank God I have people in my life who love me any ways.
On a happy note, today was my first PRSSA meeting as president! Yes, you did read that right. Even though I am a total ditz I am now the new president over the Brigham Young University-Idaho PRSSA chapter! I am super excited and glad to have this opportunity, we have a strong board with great ideas and I know we can make our chapter better than it has ever been before.
This photo was taken at a societies fair last week.
Also, my hubby is adorable.
I’m off to Utah for the long weekend because our cousin is getting married, love is in the air! Also, Clayton’s mommy and sissy are in the west coast!
Last week Clayton, my brother Garrett and I all had the opportunity to go home between winter and spring semesters. Yup, that does mean we are starting ANOTHER semester. Are you exhausted? I know I’m getting there…
Although it was nice to go home and see family, our vacation was anything but relaxing! Everyday we were booked and by the end of the week ready to kick the bucket! While in southern California we did enjoy sunshine and Clayton met with a couple of professors from prospective graduate schools. It was a great break from school and I’m so glad we were able to make the trip!
A new year a new start, I can’t believe it is February already! School has only been in for 1 month and has my arms and legs tied up already! This semester I am taking 16 credits, I am involved with I~Comm Student Agency again and I am a volunteer board member for Center Stage.
I love being in I~Comm and Center Stage, without them I wouldn’t enjoy school nearly as much as I do now. This semester in I~Comm my position is a public relations specialist, it is super fun because we get to plan all the events that the companies want. We are working with the police department again, the school news paper, The Scroll, and this week Smith Group in Idaho Falls has been talking with us to see what we can do. Everyone in the Agency has been working like crazy for Smith Group because they are South Eastern Idaho’s second largest car dealership and they want our plan book by Tuesday! Some of the events that my group came up with include: A classic car show and a truck pull! If they actually went through they would be super fun…we will see.
Center Stage is the campus organization that plans all of the performances that come to campus. It’s been a really neat experience and lucky for Clayton and I because we get free tickets to all of the events! I am hoping to work for them again next semester as a board member and then maybe by then I’ll be experienced enough to be a director! They get paid, but I’m hoping I can use that for my internship.
Speaking of internships…I have been super stressed about when I am going to do mine! The only possible times I can are either during school or the 7 week break! A lot of people are telling me to do it after I graduate but I don’t want to have to worry about that I’d rather go straight into job hunting since Clayton and I aren’t graduating at the same time any more…He will graduate 1 semester before me also since he will be attending grad school the following fall! I know everything will work out I just hate not having it set in stone yet. I’m kind of an organized freak…I like to know at least 1 year in advanced where I’ll be and what not.
Also this semester in my intro to public relations class we were told to find a campus organization that needs help with their PR. My group and I have been working with the veteran association and it has been a great experience so far! I am really enjoying it and this Sunday they are having their first meeting/activity of the semester a super bowl potluck! How fun! Other activities we are planning on having are a pool party, a care package drive for those over seas and a Military Ball! I am super excited! The best part about this organization is that even though their name is the veterans association (I am trying to convince them to change that…) it is for anyone! If your enlisted, if you’re in ROTC, if you have family in the military or if you just want to support them you can come! It is amazing…I love being part of this because I get to help those who fight for our freedoms.
Spring Semester 2012: I am hoping to get a higher position in I~Comm such as an account executive(paid position) if not then I really want to try to TA for one of my professors…I really just want to be making some sort of pay check next semester. I love volunteering and being a part of all of these great organizations but its hard to put so much time and effort without being paid.
7 week break: Clayton and I are really hoping that we can just take this time as a break from school and go visit both of our families for a couple of weeks…We will see.
Fall 2012: I hope to be a Center Stage director and be doing my internship also PRSSA nation conference will be in October and it is in San Francisco this year! I really hope to be able to attend. Clayton and my older brother Garrett Graduate!
Winter 2012: Paid position with I~Comm for sure by this semester. Also I graduate, yay!
In countries across the world how one introduces their self is dependent upon the culture they grew up in. One thing that is the same everywhere are surnames, better known in America as last names. The last name may come from the father’s side of the family, mother’s or it may contain both. It may come before the first name and represent the family that person comes from, while many other people are falling into the new trend of creating their own new family name. One thing is for sure is the importance of a last name, whether it be traditional or a new way to identify ones’ (new) family that comes with marriage.
If you like it or not when you first meet a person, more than likely you’re going to learn not just their first name but also their last. After you hear their name you almost instantly forget it, I personally feel that wanting to remember and know a person’s name shows you genuinely care. I know it is difficult, many people struggle with remembering names but that doesn’t over rule the fact that it is important.
How will you remember their name? Learn something about that person. If you want to take it up a notch from just knowing a fact, try to find something you have in common with them. This will make the person seem more real. The next time you see them you can relate to them better because your relationship is based off of more than just sitting in a class or meeting together.
All in all, today’s generation in fast paced and self-centered, but networking is the newest and most efficient way to land jobs and other favorable benefits. They’re complete opposites, which will you let take over your body? Don’t let opportunities pass you by, instead look for them. Just take the chance to get to know someone new; what do you have to lose?
With that being said, let me introduce myself. My name is Kaiti Ann Moss; my maiden name is Hickman, both of which reign from England (although my husband insists we are German). I’m just another girl in the world with big dreams.
Stay tuned to learn more about me and what makes me tick.
Maybe, maybe not-We’ll see. My name is Kaiti Moss, my old blog was through blogger, I felt like using wordpress would be more professional, hence the change-up!
I am a public relations major at Brigham Young University-Idaho and I will graduate in April 2013! I love my major so much and can’t wait to get into the working world. I love to learn but feel that hands on learning beats a text-book any day!
