Re Post: I'm a Winner #HAPPO

Let me introduce myself-- Hi, my name is Abigail Christine Dorsett and I am a recent graduate of Butler University in Indianapolis, IN. In December I received my B.A. in Integrated Communications with a concentration in Public Relations and Advertising; I graduated early… it was hard work! The road to picking my major wasn't an easy one, because as an uninformed 18 year-old entering into her first year of college, I thought I had it all figured out. WRONG! But by the end of my freshman year I did figure it out. I knew that as a creative, enthusiastic and 'big picture' woman, my heart and soul was leading me into a career of PR and Advertising. 

So here I am, nearly four years later: ready, confident and anxiously awaiting the next step in life. I don't claim to know all the answers, but I will find them for you. I'm confident, and I think that comes from my height. In 8th grade I was already 5 feet 10 inches tall-- I was the girl everyone had to look up to. But I made the most of it; I didn't want people to look up to me cause I was tall, I wanted people to look up to me cause I had the answers. I had the desire, the dream and the confidence to make something of myself and that is what I've been doing. Everyday when I wake up I live by the motto, "Make it Count." I made each day count while receiving my education and I will make each day count in my career. So, you must be asking yourself, "Why her--why Abby Dorsett?" Well listen up...

I am a PR and Advertising professional. I am a storyteller, a riveting writer and a creative artist. I will strive to create, design and build your brand while being your biggest cheerleader, your devoted publicist and your out-of-the-box thinker. I love to learn, play and find wonder in the world of PR and Advertising everyday-- because everyday is different, I'm different. I'm not your average 22 year-old, I truly believe my knowledge is beyond my years. I WON'T SETTLE, ever. I will work hard, and I won't stop until the job is done--so take a chance on me. I'd be happy to send you my resume, cover letter and references and please e-mail me at I hope this post gave you a little glimpse about my attitude towards life and my desire to succeed. I look forward to the future, and I especially look forward to hearing from you.

A lovely find

On my way home from Chicago yesterday I made time to stroll though lovely Crown Point, IN. This town is not only adorable-- but has great shops, nightlife and Midwestern charm. As I filed in and out of Antique shops (yes, I'm obsessed) I strolled past a window and fell in love with a chandelier painting. So here it is! I can't wait to hang it in my new place (wherever God is taking me (o: )

Gimmee Gimmeeeee.

So many needs (ok, ok wants) and I don't know what to do with myself!! Somedays, I think I should live in a small podunk town with a the nearest fashion mall 100 miles away. Let's just say I would save myself a LOT of $$! So you might be asking yourself, "What does Abby want now?" Well, here are just a few of my needs/wants.

yes, I want them in every color and the jelly flats for SUMMER...

I'll need these for the CUBS games (-:

Perfect for or the subway (-:

I want to fill my bed with more Anthropologie pillows (o:

and last, but definitely not least-- 
I need a mirrored dresser for my new apt (wherever the heck that will be!)

I'll take the window route...

I have an addiction

to pizza shells. Many of you in the Indy area might be familiar with the low-key pizzeria called Greeks Pizzeria. Nestled right in to the culture filled neighborhood of Broad Ripple, Greek's is sure to please every taste bud known to man. The delicious bread sticks and pepperoni pizza shells (a.k.a calzones) come slathered in Greek's famous garlic paste and will literally give you an "O" at the table. I'm not joking; this place is that good. And as an Italian, I've experienced some great pizza. From corner shops in Rome to Chicago's Giordano's deep dish pizza-- I'd put Greeks up against anyone. So next time you are in the "feed me" mode-- go to Greek's. I guarantee you'll leave one happy camper.

"I’ve seen dreams that
move the mountains.
Hope that doesn’t ever end.
(Even when the sky is falling),
I’ve seen miracles just happen.
Silent prayers get answered. Broken hearts become brand new.
Ya, that’s what faith can do"

I want to call Chicago HOME.

After a day in Chicago last week, I came to the conclusion: I HAVE to be there. I have to  be engulfed in the energy, the culture and the daily buzz. I want to walk out my door and into a world of possibility. I want the town home, the walk to the cute pub on the corner, the deep dish pizza and I especially want the "L" trip away from some of the best shopping in America. I want a life in Chicago... and I won't settle until I get there.

and you best believe I'm a CUBBIES fan!

GaGa is a genius

“Some women choose to follow men and some women choose to follow their dreams. If you’re wondering which way to go, remember that your career will never wake up and tell you that it doesn’t love you anymore”--Lady GaGa

I remind myself of this statement everyday. 

Thanks Kristin for the quote (-:

A little advice from Lady GaGa...

"Peace. it does not mean to be in a place where there is no trouble, noise, or hard work. it means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart."
— Lady Gaga

I find this outlook to be perfect.

I'm at a Crossroads.

Dear LIFE,

I quit-- the board game that is. 

I'm over traveling on your windy yellow brick road with my pink car.

I'm over drawing the "Police Woman" card, lets get real. 

I don't need/want kids yet, just save that card for someday down the road (7+ years).

I don't need a lavish six figure salary and stocks in my back pocket.

I just need a career; one that pays the bills, lets me have my occasional monthly mani/pedi and a trip or two to the fashion mall. 

I want to draw the "pick the job you love" card.

One that I jump out of bed to go to--cause I know the day has so much in store for me.
It's all rather simple-- I just want to KNOW where I'm going. This whole crossroad b.s. is beginning to wear on me, but I'll stick to my plan, "Letting go and letting God." But listen here Big Man, can you hurry up already? I can't wait to start apartment shopping. Planning trips with my mom to Anthropologie and Target, finding a new daily route--whether it be catching the "L" in Chicago, jumping on Broadway St. in Nashville or taking I-65 around downtown Indy-- I just want to know where. 

So go on God-- get busy, but in the meantime, I'll do the following:
"God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference. 
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next."

My shoes got SOUL.

For the past three years I've been wearing, supporting and spreading the word about TOMS. Shoot, I wore them before they were cool, before you could pick up a pair at Nordstrom-- but now, they are the latest closet necessity, and I love it! My TOMS have been all over the world. From INDY to ROME,

from Boston to Amsterdam-- and they left me with zero blisters! Moral to the story-- try them out; because for every pair you buy, a pair is donated to a person in need. Also, join me on April 8th as I venture into the city of Indianapolis, barefoot. DO IT, and share your story with me afterwards!

I don't claim to know all the answers, but I do know this...

really, really soon.
