Examples:

1.) Last night was crazyyy!! I was on wayyyy to many drugs!! #yolo

2.) Seriously getting tired of pissing myself when I sneeze. #pregnancyproblems

3.) I hate my life! why is everyone prettier than me? ūüė¶ #FML

4.) I hate when bikers ride on the side of the road! One day I might just hit them.

5.) Opps, almost just dropped my hot pockets in the toliet!

How to survive FIDM finals week -Jena Huse

anna frozen

Those dreadful words that every college kid will hear in their college career: finals week. Just what is it about finals that make us all go co-co-for-co-co-puffs? There is no way it could have anything to do with the fact that some are literally worth twenty percent of our grade, could it? The fact that our whole week our friends are out blacking out at the club, and we are stuck keeping our eyes open in front of our computer, or a last minute 12p.m. trip to Kinkos. Draping, textile science, a 6 page paper, a four page magazine spread, a 3D purse, our finals are a little out of the ordinary for some people, but to us it is just like any other week here. F.I.D.M. a four letter acronym we all know way too much about.

So now that we are in finals week, let me tell you how to survive it. ¬†I know everyone tells you to get plenty of rest, but I am serious, go to bed! Your mind is not even functioning at that hour, so seriously just go to bed, and wake up early in the morning with a fresh mind and a fresh pot of coffee. You will thank me. Second, grab a friend! If you are like me, you will have all the time in the world to do homework but hanging out with your friends will seem so much more fun so you procrastinate until the last minute which will leave you way too stressed for your own good. Find some friends who are in your class, and find a good time for you all to meet, you will get a lot done trust me. Make it fun, someone bakes cookies, someone brings red bull, and you all get something done while feeling productive at the same time. Do not focus on the grade you are getting in the class, unless you are trying to transfer to a state school or a university, please do not stress o the grade you have in the class. What is most important is that you got something out of the class. I have had multiple teachers in my time here at F.I.D.M. some I feel are really tough on me, and I end the class with a C, but I will be the first person to tell you I learned way more in that class than the easy A teacher everyone else took. College is all about what you get out of it, not the grades. It is about the diploma not the grade. Finally, reward yourself for setting time aside for betting your future and reaching your goals. If you are 21, have a mimosa after your last final, if you aren’t, schedule a pedicure, go shopping with a friend. Make sure you reward yourself!

I wish everyone luck this week on finals. Please remember these are the best years of your life. Make the most of every minute here.

S.O.S.: #saveourshows

by Emilee, Megan, Jeremy, Lidia, and Jocelyn

The first ever hashtag was used in 2007 and the phenomenon has grown exponentially ever since. One of the most interesting uses for hashtags in recent years has been the integration with traditional media and television in particular.

BaBM_red-150x150In February of 2012, the scifi show Fringe was on the verge of cancellation. Fans were upset and and launched a social media campaign to save their favorite show. Each week they created a new hashtag based on the week’s most recent episode, with #BeABetterMan being the most successful. In five weeks, the campaign had racked up over 100,000 tweets. The campaign was successful and the show ran for at least one more season.

A similar thing happened recently with NBC’s new show Hannibal. The show did not have the best ratings for it’s second season and was also on the brink of cancellation. Fans launched a hashtag campaign across multiple social media platforms, mainly Twitter and Tumblr. The #eattherude campaign was so significant that the show’s creator, Bryan Fuller, took notice and took it to the head of NBC and was able to get the show renewed for a third season.

The-Voice-saveNBC’s The Voice uses hashtag campaigns in a different way. During the show, viewers can tweet using particular hashtags to instantly save their favorite contestant from being kicked off the show. Other reality competitions have started to adopt this model, as well, but The Voice has definitely been the most successful so far.
