Allow Me To Introduce Myself

My name is Sierra Prince. Lover of pizza, Tori Kelly, and as you can probably tell from this aesthetically pleasing blog I have put together, laughing. I'm from Fairborn, Ohio, I have two older sisters and two hilarious humans I call Mom and Dad. I am a sophomore Marketing major, Social Media minor at Ohio Northern University in Ada, OH. For the next 15 weeks, I have the challenge of writing and maintaining a blog for my Social Media Principles class. I'll be discussing everything you need to know about public relations and social media, reacting to some readings we have to do, and telling you all about that little college town Ada, Ohio.


Ohio Northern is a unique place. ONU has an adorable mascot, a polar bear, AMAZING professors and staff, and a place for almost anyone. But because of it's incredibly small campus and village that it resides in, ONU is not for everyone. This is always what I tell people when they ask me how I like the school: "It's not for everyone, but I love it." And I do. Yes it's small, but so are the class sizes, which means it is also more personal, and you get to know your professors a lot better. There's still plenty of clubs, academic and social organizations, and many other things to keep you busy on campus (more on that next week.) For me, life isn't so much about where you are, but who you're with.

I have only been in college for a year and 2 days, but I have learned a few things within this past year, and I'm so excited to share them with you. Through these next 15 weeks we'll explore the world that is Ada, Ohio and the tales and tell all's of public relations and social media. So stick around, I have a feeling this is going to get good.

  2. Sierra I am glad that we have the same feelings for ONU. Although I am a PR major I have had the same experience! Being a polar bear has been one of the biggest blessings, and I so happy to be able to share my collegiate experience with students such as yourself! I also have a blog where I talk about what it is like to be an ONU student, life as a PR major, and other communication topics. If you have time I would love for you to check it out!

    ~Happy Blogging :)

    1. Thanks for the comment Tori! I believe we can relate a lot and hopefully learn a lot from each other, too, at our time here at Northern! I definitely will check out your blog and I hope you'll continue to read my posts!

  3. The class sizes also appeal to me. Being able to connect with the professors is something that has really been a huge benefit for me. I also really enjoyed the style in which you wrote this. It was almost as if I could hear you saying the words! Something that I am trying to work on myself.

    1. Thanks for checking out my blog, Patrick! I mainly just write as if I'm the only reading it, which can be a good thing and a bad thing. I'll be checking out your blog soon, I'm sure it's fantastic! Thanks again!

5 Things

If you've never bought in to anything I've said on this platform, or any platform for that matter, please try and dissolve what I'm about to say.

I'm full of insecurities, always have been. My face is too round. My love handles poke out. Arms are so flabby I could probably fly away. Acne comes and goes and reminds me that I have pores, too. Sometimes my eyebrows look more like stepsisters than twins. Bigfoot and I could share shoes. The mole on my nose isn't always a welcome decoration. Scars from past accidents cover my legs and bring back the memories of learning how to ride a bike. Most days my curls resemble an unruly afro, not the cute kind of Shirley Temple curls I once had.

Lately, my insecurities have consumed me. Every time I looked in the mirror, a frown followed. I tugged and poked at my body for hours. But today, today I woke up and felt new. I was a different person. The person in the mirror was happy, glowing, beautiful. My hair twisted and turned jus…

Planning my Funeral

No, the title is not clickbait, and yes, it is true. Hear me out. I'm not suicidal. I'm not terminally ill, that I know of. But I do know that days are limited here on this precious planet we call home and I've become increasingly aware of that.

I got to thinking a few days ago about my own funeral. Funerals are typically sad situations, and for good reason, yes. But I don't want my funeral to be sad. I'm only nineteen and haven't written a will, and while I don't plan on it any time soon, this is my unofficial, official will. Although, a bit differently. You see, I don't want to tell you what I leave to everyone in my life, I want to tell you what I hope I've left behind. And I want to tell you how I want my celebration of life to be.

First of all, I hope my life had purpose. I don't care what, and not really how either, but I hope I left a legacy. I hope everyone who knew me knew that all I ever wanted was to make them laugh, or smile. I hope …

Rush Rho Gam

Two sorority posts back to back, who am I???

Last week on campus we finished up a week of formal recruitment. This year instead of being involved with normal recruitment, I served as a Rho Gamma for my chapter. Being a Rho Gamma means that you de-affiliate from your chapter. During this time I wasn't allowed to wear any letters, affiliated merchandise, or tell people who didn't already know, which chapter I was in. I couldn't also be seen in public with a lot of my friends who were affiliated members, which was the most difficult part.
As a Rho Gamma you get paired up with a floor in one of the residence halls, and help guide the girls on that floor through formal recruitment. I had the honor of having the floor I lived in my freshman year, which was extremely nostalgic and rewarding for me. Every week we would have meetings with these girls, and walk them to rounds on campus, gradually getting to know them and love them. This part of the experience was simultaneously easy…
