1. The Future

    By the time I am 21 or 22 years old, I hope to have graduated from USF by that time. I plan to have a in place job ready for me by the time I graduate. Hopefully, it is in radio broadcasting. Through my experience with Bulls Radio, I plan to complete a couple of internships to gain access into the cutthroat industry of talk radio. It would be ideal to stay in the Tampa area and land a job with either 620 WDAE, 1010 Sports, or ESPN 1040. If not, I will look elsewhere throughout the nation to find an opening. I know I will probably be moving around a lot because people in the industry typically move from city to city until they land that perfect gig and become a mainstay in the area. Either way, that is what I want to do even though there is not tons of money to make unless you are nationally syndicated or get monster ratings. All I know is that I am going to work as hard as I can and will refine my craft so I can land my dream job. 

    As for the future in four years, I do not see too many drastic changes in technology. I do believe elementary schools, high schools, and technology will be more tech-savvy. I could see newspapers being obsolete, which would be sad to see. Reading a newspaper and printing off an article are not the same too me. I also see a new President being in office. Nothing against President Obama, but his appeal and interest by the American people has kind of died down. He can only do so much. I think whoever becomes the President is cursed because of all the problems America will go through. I see China surpassing the U.S. in the near future and some other countries coming close. Overall, it will be tough to get ahead with our country’s debt and education system the way it is.

  2. Technology Tip

    If you have a Mac computer, this may be helpful unless you already know about it. It deals with conserving your computer’s battery life when it is not plugged. Other than turning down your computer’s brightness or energy preferences, you can also turn off blue tooth at the top right-hand corner of your computer. When your computer’s blue tooth search is turned on, it saps the battery life of your Mac. By turning it off, you will notice that you will have another hour or two of battery life without your charger on the go.

  5.  Spring Break- Unfortunately, my Spring Break did not really go as planned. I spent more time at the Urgent Care Center, doctor’s offices than anything else as right before break I was diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection and chronic bronchitis. Not fun. So although I did not get to soak in the nice weather or catch up with old friends, it was relieving to know that I did not have class or any obligations of any sort during that time. In other words, it is probably better to become ill during the break than during the middle of the semester. Anyway, Spring Break is important because it gives students a much-needed rest from the rigors of tests, homework, and classes. It allows students to decompress and not go crazy thinking about what lies ahead with finals and grades. For students that live in the North, it gives them the opportunity to get their spirits up by going from the lasting effect of the winter months to sunny weather in Florida.
 Spring Break was originally set up by colleges around the time of Easter, but that is no longer the case. It originated when a swim coach at Colgate University took his team to Fort Lauderdale in 1936 to train at the first Olympic-sized pool in Florida. Word quickly spread not just among college swimmers, but to all college students to head to Florida during break. Since then, kids have been flocking to all parts of Florida during this time of year not to swim, but to have a good time through socializing, partying, and relaxing.

  6. I didn’t have any photos of myself on hand, but thought this represented me best as this is where I am usually spending a lot of my time outside of class: at BullsRadio. Here is where I produce athletic events and produce other radio shows as well as my own. I hope to land a career in it someday and have fun doing it.
