As I work my last 5am shift at WSIU Radio station.. I can't help but sit here and think about my 4 yrs at SIUC... I've had good and bad times... but thinking over everything I find myself not trading my experience for anything... It taught me courage, strength and knowledge... I've learned so much I know that this will benefit me in the future and take me to the level I want to be... When your a kid you watch all these fairy tale movies and want your life to be just like them... but we all must realize it's nothing but a fairy tale... I accept everything i have been through... and i promise to myself that this is only the beginning of a great future ahead... I'm ready to take any path that may come my way... If there's one thing I can tell you all... NEVER GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS... Regardless of what people are telling you what you can and can't do... You must keep a positive attitude and with that ANYTHING is possible... Until then I'm still working to get Closer to my Dreams

Tomorrow is April 30th and still I have no clue of my future plans. Graduation is May 15th and I am SICK AND TIRED of hearing.. "Sooo what are you doing after graduation"... See I'm the type of person that likes to have a plan.. And I don't right now so it's really bothering me. The internships I've applied for aren't due till tomorrow.. and they said we wouldn't find out if we got it till the FIRST WEEK OF JUNE.. So I have to wait a whole month!!!!! I'm trying really hard not to pull the hair I do have out.. but when your young you watch all these movies you in vision.. School..School...more school and a good job right after NOT!!! It's harder than you think people.. I'm a little disappointed.. but I'm going to continue to apply for as much jobs as I can.. Until next time I'm still working to get Closer to my Dreams

Reunited and It feels so Good!!!

I feel I haven't been on here in ages... Please don't think I've forgotten about you guys... but let me tell you my motivation is stronger than ever... Graduation is only weeks away and still no job offers... but I've recently received an email about this internship in Chicago and Washington D.C at 1am last night... and this opportunity would be GREAT for me... Other than that I did a piece on this African Food Fair at my school and it was the best piece I think I've ever done... My camera and writing skills are really improving... Well once I hear from anybody you'll be the first to know!!!! Until then I'm still working to get Closer to my Dreams
