Keepin' It Up

Look at the review I did for The Social Firm about Raconteur Theatre Company's presentation of Joe Musso’s Conk and Bone at Club Diversity.

I would love to hear your comments and please let me know of any upcoming shows to Central Ohio!

Caitlin's Law

Caitlin's Law

<Think Murphy's Law, but more grand.>

A brillant text will come to mind, when your phone's battery has just died.

The meal you just magnificently concocted will turn out perfectly when you're home alone, unable to share the wondrous dish.

Healthy foods taste better with chocolate.  



You car will break down before the biggest event of your life, i.e. interview for the great job, your wedding day, etc.

That "one last drink" will get you shwasted.

Surrender your heart. It will get broken. It gets better.

Love conquers most. Ice cream heals the heartache, especially Jeni's

Girls Night/Guys night can turn into One Night Stands. Ask anyone.

Fifty Shades of Grey will help you're relationship, momentarily. 

Friends are like plants. Give your relationship the proper attention and it will grow.

Gambling is a toy in Pandora's box. Not everyone can resist the constant seduction of the game of chance. 

~End for now~

I'm thinking of making a larger list soon. Any suggestions to add to the list?

Graduation Left Overs

You, your kids or someone you know is graduating from school. After the congratulations are put to rest, the cake is eaten and the money collected there’s something left over that might seem to intrude on your living space; textbooks. Every student has them, but not all of them want to keep them.

So what are you going to do with these bulking books building up into piles around the house?


 Check out my guest blog post at for the options! 

Congratulations everyone!

P.S. After I graduate Sunday, I will be back to the blog with full Jedi force.

Exciting news blogies! You're looking at the newest intern for Cement Marketing. If you would like a quick refresh, scroll down a few posts. I attended their "Facebook - Timeline" workshop in March with the widely known, Jim Coe.

Side note: I know you've heard of the "6 degrees of separation" theory, right? The idea...not the Kevin Bacon film per say. Well, if you applied this theory to Coe you would have to subtract 3 because it seems everyone in Columbus knows him.  Basically, if you don't know Coe, you're missing out. He is an awesome guy! 

Now back to the shenanigans.

On Tuesday, I had my first day at the exciting, downtown advertising firm. Everyone was sincere when they spoke and seemed interested in finding out the basics about my educational background. When the computer screens began to dwindle our ability to continue our path to awesome concentration, the guys invited me to play a game of ping pong. Let me tell you, this idea is ingenious. The quick and simple game makes for the perfect supplement for a combusting brain.

When the days assignment was given to me, I couldn't wait to start the process because I wanted to make a decent impression and produce something worth reading. Without further ado, I must express I'm stoked!

The stars must be aligned because this week is feeling just right. I finished "Busy Monsters," a novel constructed by William Giraldi. Also, I put together my new bed set (looks beautiful). All the while listening to Rebelution's Peace of Mind CD. Yes, good week.

Off to venture into new tales and paths unforeseen.

Cancellation becomes the word of the week in Caitlin's crazy life.

People seem to care less about a commitment in this era. Do you agree? Whether it be marriage, raising a child or showing up to a meeting, people have lost that effort. 


Even when money is on the table people would rather attend other events. These other events could blatantly be less beneficial and there is still lack of respect. 

Our fast lives will one day catch up with us. Maybe I'm sounding like your grandma, but I really don't like how my own generation is dealing with life. 

Everyone seems to want a big dream, but when it boils down to the real business of achieving they slough off. 

I hope when I finally find a paid job I will be surrounded by go-getters. It's ok to take a day off and chill out every now and then, but I need a team of people who understand when it's grind time.

~Peace Out~

Short & Sweet!

Photo shoot went well. I love El Campanario <Columbus>! Both the guys have amazing talent & I highly recommend their services. You dream it..they produce it. 

In preparation for the photo shoot I worked with my trainer for four days a week and drastically altered my diet. I felt the need to indulge and "pig out" after the completion of the shoot. Thus, late last night I arrived at Roosters with a big cloud above my head, a vivid picture of mac & cheese bites appearing in the mist. 

Love. The warm, cheesy center and breaded crust were sinful. As the basket began to empty the consumption of the little cheese bite left my stomach with an indescribable pain. Lust. Since the snack didn't return my emotional attachment, I will go back to my apples and grapes today.

As I sit in class and multiple task, my brain begins to inflate. Content for a research paper is resting to the left of my brain. I'm attempting to focus on the current lecture, but other ideas of a future career, internship projects and various other things put a crochet hat over my ability to concentrate. 

I hope to have more accomplished by the next post. 

Thanks for reading!

Hold up! Wait a minute! Let me put my two cents in it!

Goal: To get the blogging world up to speed on my life since last Tuesday without having them pass out from boredom.

As advised, I sent my email off to a social marketing firm in hopes of moving in, like OSU men's basketball team did to the Final Four. Well, sorry guys and gals no return message & if you didn't hear the men's basketball team got SPANKED in the last quarter.

Thus, my plans that I had set aside in my bottom dresser drawer began to knock on my head and that infamous light bulb flashed on. 

 (Jacked from 

If I don't have enough on field experience, I'll make myself go through every step taught in those intriguing communication classes. I'm going to break out of my shell and push forward with my own social marketing business aimed at clubs, lounges and bars. 

In the past couple of months I have had simple aspects of the business completed. For example, I had illustration work for the logo and font of the business name by Matthew Spurlock, the hiralous but lovable ginger. Go check out for a look inside his cabeza. 


Anyway, drama with my first piece in The Lantern caused me to speak with the Moscato over the weekend.

First off Jared Anderson is an amazing PIERCER. So way to editors at The Lantern for discrediting me as a writer!

Secondly, I understand that edits need to be made to fit the college paper format, however I had no idea they had THAT much editorial power.  

Furthermore, the misprint caused Jared to rant and rave on my cell over the weekend until I finally turned off my phone. There was nothing I could do but to apologize for a mistake I DIDN'T commit.

Thus, trying to edit my "Ringside Cafe" piece it getting put on the back burner.

Hopefully, this week turns out to be a little more positive.

Signing off with a half way smile :/,

I've done it for internships..and now I'm an official blogger for myself! Welcome to the wondrous world of Caitlin Farkas. Nice to meet my fellow bloggers.  :)

Just today I was invited to Cement Marketing's workshop on Facebook's Timeline.
 I love meeting people engaged in the social media world for business purposes. This adventure into public relations park is guaranteed to be a roller coaster and I invite you to take the ride with me!

After walking out to Gay Street and saying my goodbyes I saw this girl that resembled a member of this band I just read about in The Other Paper. Turns out it was the kick ass band and they were packing up after finishing a recording in the studio. Oh how I love Columbus!
