what’s new

Since I graduated from the Ohio Center For Broadcasting I have lost about 10-15 lbs. I’m not sure how I actually accomplished doing this but I will take what I can get. In about a month I will be heading on vacation with a few of my girlfriends and I’m considering new diets. There are so many different diets that are out on the internet and it is hard to tell what actually works. Another problem a lot of people have with losing weight, is keeping the weight off after you finish your diet. There are probably about 1 million different diets, and since everyone is different, different things work for different people. Are there diets that work better for you? I remember when I was in high school I went on a short diet and actually lost about 20 lbs just from eating a little healthier and doing a half hour to an hour of cardio every day.

I also have been working on a podcast show with one of my great friends Nick Wolff. I’m am so excited about starting this show (starts in mid April). We will be having awesome interviews and great shows, and we are actually looking on getting some advertising for the station. We are working on season 3 so stay tuned because there is ton’s of fun to be had.

A lot of things have been going on in the last few months! I got a job in the broadcasting industry and I absolutely love it! I also am not working at the school I went to as an instructors assistant, and helping people get to where I am feels great. I have so much going on right now it’s hard to keep my thoughts straight. There are tons of new movies and concerts going on this year and I can’t wait to start enjoying them. This year I will be participating in a huge charity event for the Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital, which is going to be a blast. They have a gigantic ball at City Hall and have so many people come in and donate time and money to the hospital. I am so excited to help out with that, and that’s May 3rd, so keep coming back for more information and once the ball is finished I will have video’s and pictures from the event to share!

With technology these day’s there is an unlimited amount of things you can do. I recently connected with a few people I went to middle school and High school with. It’s pretty amazing how far some people have come from just a few short years. A old friend is now touring with Mushroom head, which is awesome! Another person I grew up with, her little brother just got engaged. I can’t believe it… he is a few years younger then me and it’s so weird to think that he is old enough to be engaged. Another friend of mine just had her 2nd baby and is engaged! I don’t know how she does it because right now I don’t think I could handle having two kids. She def is a strong and amazing girl. I love catching up with old friends because it reminds you of a much simpler time in my life.

There is so much I would like to accomplish this year. I am down about 10-15 lbs from last year, so I only have another 10-15 lbs to go before I get to right where I want to be. I also have a few goals for my career. I def want to become more valuable to this company. I think I am at the point in my job where things are becoming easier for me. I hope that I will be able to move up within the company before the end of the year. I at least would like to have a full time job in the broadcasting industry. I think I could do it too if I work extra hard.

Is there something that you would like to accomplish this month? Year? If so the best way to accomplish it is to make smaller goals that slowly build up to your big goal. Just remember, there is nothing you can’t do, as long as you try your best.

Life is grand!

I am so happy with how things have been looking recently. I finally have a job that I can look forward to going to, which I am so excited about. I just finished my third day of training, and I think I am now able to board opp all by myself. I am also learning other things in the department so I can start doing more for the company. I am just so happy with everything. My boyfriend has been so amazing with me changing jobs and with being sick, which sadly has happened a lot recently due to all the colds and flu’s that are going around. This nasty bug has hit me twice in the same month, but nothing can take me off my good mood. People at Clear Channel are so nice and inviting and I am just so happy to be back with them. Has anyone else felt like this when it comes to your job? I also am getting some backlash about taking this job. I have had people say that I am not going anywhere in the business but honestly I don’t care what they have to say because I know that I am a hard worker who will do whatever it takes to succeed. I love what I am doing and I think that is rewarding enough without pay… but everyone needs to get paid for what they do haha. I just say let the people talk and say what they want because at the end of the day, what you do and how you feel is the only thing that should matter. So if you have been put down for doing something that you love… ignore them and continue working hard because you can succeed if you try your best, and that’s all that people can ask of you. 🙂 Have a safe and wonderful week!

A lot has happened

Hey everyone! So a lot has happened since I wrote last. Turns out my nephew will be just fine and it was just a blood clot. I also have some wonderful news that I got a job! I am now a board operator and promotions team member for Clear Channel! I had my first day of training yesterday and I have to say that I’m very excited to go back. I put in a month notice at my job so I will have a lot more free time soon! I think it’s been a wonderful year so far and I can’t wait for what life has for me in 2013. Thanksgiving was great… had a lot of great food and got to see my family so it was amazing. How was your Thanksgiving? Christmas is right around the corner and  I just started doing my Christmas shopping but I will be done soon enough. I can’t wait to be able to blog so much more about what’s going on in my life in the future. I have a feeling that I will have much to write about because I am thinking of volunteering at a shelter or something around the holiday’s or taking some classes at my local library. I know they have stuff like knitting but I’m not too sure what else they offer. If you know of any fun or interesting thing that you can take free or cheap classes please feel free to let me know. Or if there is any class that you have personally taken that you enjoyed. I hope to talk to you soon and thank you so much for taking your time out to read and look around the site. ❤ Happy holiday’s!

Sad news

Yesterday night I was hanging with my brother, and he informed me that one of my nieces half brother has cancer. He is only 6 years old. Cancer is a really horrible thing and has touched my family in many ways. My mother had colon cancer (beat it), my moms aunt had cancer ( lost battle), my cousin and now my nephew. He might not be my actual nephew but to me and my family he is. Its still the beginning of things to come for him but there is much we dont know just yet. Were not sure they type of cancer or what stage its in. We are hoping that it is in an early stage because then maybe they can get rid of it. The only reason we found it was because he got hit pretty had during his football practice and then started to get sick. They said that they probably wouldn’t have found it if he didn’t get hurt because they had no signs. I will be keeping everyone informed but as of now its just a testing and waiting game. All we know is that it looks like a horse shoe and it is wrapped around his kidney. He’s such a good little boy and it’s so sad that he (actually anyone) should have to deal with this at such a young age. I would like to ask everyone to keep him in their thoughts and prayers and hopefully we got it early and can beat this.

How is everyone?

Hey, How is everyone doing? I’m great, just been keeping busy between working both my part time and full time job and trying to find me a radio job. I have been able to catch up with a lot of friends and family since graduation and it’s been so nice. I do miss going to school so much and my internship is what I think I miss the most. I worked so hard and loved going in every morning… even though it was 5:30am. Being a part of a radio station is the best job that I could ever ask for. Not being able to find a job has also made me realize that maybe I should continue to further my education. I might go back part time, pretty sure that I will not be going back full time, but I do miss school. It’s weird that when we are in grade school, we are so excited for school to be over, but once it ends all I want to do is go back. I haven’t made my full decision because I’m still hoping that I will find a job and then I won’t need to go back, but i still might. I think learning is one of the best things people can do for themselves. I have done so much for myself this past year or two that I can’t even remember what I was like before going to The Ohio Center For Broadcasting. I learned so much from my teachers, and at the station. I can’t wait to be a part of another station. I have been sending my stuff out and waiting for that bite. I will be writing more often, so keep up with everything that’s going on here. Thanks for stopping and hope to hear from you soon! 🙂

Good Morning!

 

Hello everyone! How are you all doing today!? It’s such a beautiful day out and I can’t wait to be able to enjoy it. There has been a lot going on lately in the news with celebrities, and other stuff. Snookie had her baby last night. I’m not really a big fan of her or Jersey Shore but I am glad that her baby is healthy and I wish the best to her. It’s weird how much growing up you do in just a few short years. I have seen so many of my friends grow up into strong parents and it amazes me. I just can’t wait till one day I am the one who gets to post about my children and my life on sites, but for now it’s better that I wait. I have so much that I want to do in my life, and it’s about time I start. I have applied to a few places so far but I have not received much back but I still am staying positive because you really never know when opportunity will come knocking. I wish the best for all my friends, family, supporters and everyone else out there. ❤ Have a great day and be happy with who you are because if you’re not happy, then you can’t expect other people to be happy for you either.
