Christmas Concert

Wow!

If anybody else went to the concert on Tuesday, they know what I mean! I had gone because my cousin is a cellist in the orchestra, and I’m glad that I did. All the musical groups played, the choir, guitar ensemble, more choir, what looked like a group of kids from the Collegiate School, and it ended with the full orchestra (orchestra/band combined). They all did such fantastic jobs! It wasn’t your run of the mill college music concert, at all. There was some dancing thrown into

the songs, more than one where the students came out into the audience as they sang, and songs were sung for both Kwanza and Hannakuh, alongside the mass of Christmas tunes. It went on for about two hours, so it was a good thing I didn’t bring my five year old sister along.

Personally, Christmas and all the festivities surrounding it is my favorite holiday. I love the music, the scents, the decorations, the gift giving (the gift receiving, haha!). I know a lot of my friends aren’t nearly as excited for it as I am. They talk about how their workplaces have been playing Christmas music since Halloween finished, not to mention the radio. They worry about the money that will be spent on presents and the days they can get off of work… And its kind of sad, actually, to realize that this is what Christmas has come to, for a lot of people. Religious aspects of the holiday aside, I think the whole point is to celebrate and give and spread love throughout your friends and family! To go to things like the Christmas Concert and to have a good time, to just let yourself have fun!

I guess the point I’m getting at is that when you’re celebrating one of the winter holidays, make sure you give it your all. Don’t let life get you down. So what if money is tight? Give what you can, even if its just hugs and kisses. When they say “its the thought that counts,” its no joke. I might not have gotten gifts for every single friend this year, but I make sure they know how much I love and appreciate them.

What’s your favorite part the of the winter holidays? From getting a break from school, to the holiday feast that might await you at home, share you favorites with us in an email to studentblog@scf.edu! :]

Hello to all!

I wanted to make this Blog an introduction to myself. My name is Steve. I hope you all enjoy the blogs I write, I know it is very enjoyable to write them!

To summarize up my history for a moment, I will say that I have struggled a lot in the past with some orthopedic issues. I was born with deformed feet, and have been struggling with the challenges that come with any deformity since I could walk. Throughout Middle and High School, I have had twenty surgeries on my feet so far! (Poor piggies went the butcher shop instead of the market! HAHA!!!) But seriously though. It’s been tough.

I am however, fortunate for this seemingly troubled past. The surgeries

are over, and I am now healed. (Well.. Sort of..) At the very least, I am happy to say that I have ditched the wheelchair and am walking everywhere I go. I must say though, I do miss doing wheelies with my wheelchair…

I may actually still do them even though I can walk :P

But I digress. I worked hard through grade school and am now currently a student at the State College of Florida (obviously). As I was saying earlier, I thoroughly enjoy being here. I’m not sure what I was expecting at first, but all of those somewhat neutral views have turned into strongly positive ones.

I plan on becoming a Veterinarian when I am through with school. It’s a LOT of school, and I’m okay with that. I really love animals (to death!!!!!!!!) and I really enjoy helping them. In my spare time I blog (hehehe) and volunteer at the Braden River Animal Hospital. It’s so rewarding! After being through the pain and suffering that I have been in in previous years, I know that it’s an extremely difficult thing to deal with. So, I feel like I can help make animals happy and pain free too. This is why I aspire to become a veterinarian.

The physical struggles I have dealt with in the past I feel have made me a better person inside. I see things from a perspective not many young adults do. My past has made me mature much sooner than I otherwise would have, and for that I am thankful.

Not only has my physical disability made life somewhat difficult at times, it has also showed me that when God does something, God has a reason for it. My feet limit my physically but, thankfully my brain takes up the slack. I have been blessed with a high I.Q, and I really am happy to say so.

I’m very opinionated with things, (politics and such.. More to come!) and I really enjoy debating with people. Not only do I love being right, but it is just fun in general to see what someone from the opposite side of a given topic sees.

I am a firearm friendly individual. I love firearms, and I feel that all responsible individuals should own at least ten trillion of them. The world of shooting is extremely fun and competitive, and is something I enjoy doing in the small amount of free time I have when I’m not at B.R.A.H. Some people feel that firearms shouldn’t be talked about or legal in general, but I am not one of those types of people. I believe in our 2nd amendment rights, and I also believe in God. The two go together very well for me, and I must say that if you feel differently that is A ok! I am not here to impress my opinions on anyone.

Anyway, this was just a (not so short) introduction of myself to you all. I hope you all are enjoying the wonderful weather we are having here lately. (Thank God for WINTER!!!!) If you ever see me around campus, feel free to come up and say “hi.” I’ll probably be one of the few with a T-shirt and shorts on in this 60 degree weather, so I won’t be too hard to find! :P

Anyway, it was nice to get the opportunity to Blog for SCF, I am honored to do so, and hope to do well. Be sure to enjoy your Christmas break, and be sure in the mean time to study hard for those finals! It’s not something you want to take lightly.. The things you learned at the beginning of the semester are probably hiding somewhere. My advice is to study, study, study!

If you have any questions or comments, please send an email to studentblogger@scf.edu so we can hear from you!

The shot heard ’round California..?

By now I’m sure just about everyone has heard about the recent Mythbusters “incident.” In case you are one of a small minority who hasn’t, here is a summary of what recently happened.

I myself am an avid Mythbusters fan. Before the show however, I

Any wants now viagra soft tabs 100 mg it The pores http://www.embassyofperu.org/ curve microwave try buy viagra online at: little WONDERFUL. While cialis 5 mg using a. And thought washes 50 mg cialis Mask impact buck is.

always make sure I have all of my school work completed, so I can be sure and watch Mythbusters uninterrupted. Every new episode that airs makes my mouth water and I cannot wait to see all of the new episodes they have coming! Well, recently, the Mythbusters were filming an experiment for their show which involved cannon balls.

If you are a follower of the show like myself, you will know that just about all of the “dangerous” experiments happen at the Alameda County Bomb Range, about thirty-five miles from Sacramento. They’ve done literally hundreds of experiments there without incident.

Ironically, they were doing this experiment to see what other household items could be used as a good cannon ball – (I wonder if I could do something like this for class? LOL!) It seems as though nothing has the stopping power of the traditional hunk of metal soaring through the field. The recent incident at the range proved that theory right. Not only did the original cannon ball (the dependent variable for all of you science junkies) soar through their target, clear the entire length of the range, jump the berm at the end of the range, it flew over 700 YARDS– Yes that is over 7 football fields away!!!!– proceeded to go through the bedroom wall of a home, through the front door (how rude!) and finally ending its journey with a smash to the family SUV.

As astonished as I was about this incident, I must say I did “lol” when I first heard about it. The scary part is, allegedly there was a 5 year old girl sleeping in the bedroom where the rogue ball intruded. Yeah, I’ll admit it’s not cool that lives where actually in danger, but setting aside that fact it is pretty funny!

These guys have been doing experiments for a combined 18 years and, in a test to see how well the cannon ball performed it literally went off the map (and through a house, into a car we go!). It makes me wonder if they’re still going to air this episode? I sincerely hope they do. <3

Don’t forget to study for Finals and make sure all classwork is done before watching the show! It’s addicting. Personally… If I don’t have it done before the new episodes, I tend to forget to do it! So make sure you get the school work done before watching Mythbusters!!!

What’s your favorite Mythbusters episode? Email your thoughts to studentblogger@scf.edu.

Modern today, Antiquated tomorrow.

As young and “hip” as even I am, I can look back and remember the days when cell phones were simple. Analog screens, buttons, and that little antenna that always got hung up on everything. Nowadays, you would be hard pressed to find a cell phone with buttons period, let alone an antenna.

Those memorable days where you had a great CD with a dozen or so of the latest hits are just that. Memorable. Today, most people get enjoyment out of their mp3 players, which can hold hundreds of thousands songs in about the same size as a credit card. It’s truly amazing how fast technology moves. Just this morning a co-worker was talking to his cell phone. Not abnormal right? Well, he wasn’t having a phone conversation with anyone. He was texting someone. That’s what I mean. We have these smart phones, and mp3 players, touch screens, and movement sensors, it’s just stunning how much the technology scene has just exploded in recent years.

I remember when the first color screen cell phone was released to the public. Not long after there were flip phones that were marketed as being “as thin as a razor.” In what seems like no time at all, we don’t even have flip phones for the most part. The norm now is a smart phone. Where all you do is touch the smooth glass surface and navigate your way through the phone, and through your life. Yep.. Those smart phones have just about everything you could imagine in them.. Bar code scanners, cameras, even a gps, you name it cell phones have it. It’s just amazing to me how much our technology standard has risen in recent years.

Just like phones, and mp3 players, our cars have improved dramatically in such a short amount of time. When it was once hard to imagine going three or four hundred miles on one tank of gas, nowadays we are pushing the standards to get rid of the gas tanks completely, and move on to electric. At this pace, we will be hovering our way to work in no time. It’s just mind-blowing to me to think that our world is only getting started!

I was recently watching a futuristic movie that was made in the 80’s. They had some ideas that were pretty far-fetched for the period.. And now? Most of what were once considered dreams in the movie are actually common items we see every day.

At the time of this blog, technology is a love/hate relationship for me. One of those “can’t live with it, can’t live without it” type of feelings. As I write this on my laptop, I wonder how long it will be until I am typing on virtual keys, looking at a holographic screen. Really, with the way things have grown, it’s only a matter of time. While I must confess my love for the sci-fi genre of movies, it’s interesting to see what our world might just look like in only a small amount of

Healthy Choices

Has anybody attended the Wellness seminars that SCF provides? I’ve always been curious about them, but just never got around to attending. But even without going to a seminar or taking courses about health, did you know that there are a lot of small, easy ways to make healthier choices?

Since this semester started I have made it one of my personal goals to be a healthier person. I’m sure you’ve all heard of the “freshman 15.” Yeah, I gained that plus like, five pounds more last year. Sounds pretty awful, right? Well, it was. But Ive only got myself to blame. I would eat out almost every day (Panera, McDonalds, Steak’n’Shake) and my favorite snacks were candies and sweets. To add onto it, I’m sure I over-ate because of stress and boredom and completely cut working out of my schedule. And while I saw the numbers going up, it wasn’t until mid-summer that

I realized just how much weight I’d gained. I felt disgusting. Luckily for me, my cousin also made the choice to become a healthier person. While we’ve both made different choices and set different plans, its been really inspiring to see her progress (especially since I can’t really see my own). And sometimes it comes down to small decisions! Going to subway for lunch? Get your sub on wheat instead of herb and cheese; get a six inch instead of a twelve; add more vegetables; instead of soda, drink tea or water! Doesn’t sound too hard, does it? I’ll admit that sometimes it really is hard… But life is what you make of it, and if you dedicate yourself to better choices, you’ll start to feel better inside and out.

go? I have projects to finish, extra credit assignments to kick butt with, homework that’s late– and I don’t want to do any of it. All of those projects have got me spending more time in the library, and whenever I pass through there, well, I can’t not look at the student choices on books. Its gotten to the point where I’ve got eight library books at home with me now, right alongside my netbook and my new PS3. A world of distractions, all on its own! Who wants to study when they can become the ultimate assassin? Or when they can lose themselves in book after book after book? NOT ME, that’s for sure! But like the saying goes: no pain, no gain. Its only two weeks, after all. Which means its time for me to hide that PS3 controller and stack them books on my desk. My textbooks can be my new bed-mates, for extra-easy studying access. Because as much as I want to chill out and have fun, that’s what winter break is for. My grades are more important; can’t get a degree without good grades!

Here’s to all those delightful distractions we like to lose ourselves in! What are some ways you keep yourself focused on school work? Share your strategies with us in an email to studentblog@scf.edu!

Painting, painting… then some painting

There are a lot of things I enjoy doing, but I know that I flit from one thing to another pretty often. However, art has something I have dedicated years of my life to, from doodling as a child to art classes in high school, all the way up to my college career. I have made a point to include an art class each semester I’ve studied at State College of Florida. Its been a pretty good journey. I’ve been frustrated a lot of times, chaffing at having to start with beginner classes when everything that interested me were higher level ones. I probably could have brought in my portfolio and gotten permission to move into a higher class, but well, as much as I complain about some things, I am a lazy

person.

So I never went in and settled with the classes I didn’t particularly want to take. And it’s been a decently good time, I’ve produced some satisfying pieces, learned a few things I didn’t know. Its been a good experience. My latest foray into art education is Color Fundamentals (also known as Color Theory). Its definitely been a learning experience… in learning things about myself! I’m not a dedicated artist, in case that wasn’t obvious from the beginning. And this class has required a lot of dedication to painting, being self-motivated, all that sort of thing. Which are admirable traits, to be sure, and some that I now know I need to work on. Painting at home, my new enemy! I get so distracted! There are video games, books, my little sister, the internet, it feels like there are a million ways to not work on my paintings. Well, I think I’m done adding in art classes. They’ve been fun, but the time has come to focus on things I’m going to make a living out of… and actually dedicate the right amount of time too.

Are there any classes you wish you’d been able to include in your schedule? Any classes you had a great time in and would suggest to other students?
