    Lacing Up with Lacey #11 // April 8, 2009

    This semester, junior Lacey Simpson is writing a weekly blog to keep Fighting Illini fans up to date on what's going on behind the scenes. After 12 weeks of her internship, Simpson's time is winding down. Check out her final "Lacing Up" of the season.


    Ok everyone, brace yourself for the bad news...ready...ok, here It marks the last time that I will be writing my weekly blog ☹. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, this is the last week of my internship for the Public Relations Department. My 12 weeks are finally up and graduation is on its way!!!!!

    I've really enjoyed my experiences throughout my internship and I've learned so much about this department and the hard work and dedication that comes along with it. I've had the opportunity to learn from and work with some amazing people and I am very thankful for that.

    At the end of this week, it'll be time to take my work shoes off and lace up he sneakers as postseason workouts have already started. I now have the time to focus on getting better and working on all aspects of my game. This will be my last year and I'm setting the bar high. I have high expectations for next season so it's NOW that I MUST put in the WORK!!!!

    I would like to thank Derek Neal and the sports information staff for taking out time in their busy schedules to help me understand how things work in the Public Relations Department, and providing me with a wonderful work experience. And to all that take the time to read my incredible blogs, I would like to thank you as well! Who knows, maybe I'll write again next year...

    Peace--Love & Happiness
