Well today starts my first day of summer! I finished all of my summer class so I am done with school for about two in half months. Tomorrow starts a whole summer of boating, life guarding, hanging with friends, and vacation. This summer I am lucky enough to go on three vacations. I get to go visit a friend in Las Vegas and visit family in California. I have a summer full of fun to say the least. I get to spend my summer with all my family and friends. I get to work a pretty easy job of sitting outside tanning and watching over people while they swim.  I hope your summer is going to be as good of mine of just spending time with family and going to visit fun places! Well I am going to get ready to spend a day on the boat tomorrow so I hope you enjoyed reading my blog for the past couple of weeks!

Last Day of Class

Standard

Today I turned in my last video for my online journalism class. To be honest I was kind of sad about it. The first day of class I was a little worried about going out and video taping then editing. But after about the second video I started to feel like I really got the control of things and starting to understand and feel comfortable about taping then editing. This class has made me realize that I can not imagine how much time and effort is put into actually full length movies. For every video that we have made we had file at least twenty minute and only ended up using about two to three minutes at most. I can not imagine how much people actually file for a full length movie. My partner and I put a lot of work into just making a couple minutes of video. I am so glad I got the chance to take this class. I have learned a lot about how to tape and edit videos. I have really enjoyed taking this class for the last couple of weeks.

Memorial weekend for me is of my favorite holidays. This year it is the start to my summer. My summer class ends and I get to go to my home town to go boating all weekend. On friday I am going to my dads house to go boating on a lake close to our house. We have a whole weekend planned of boating and cooking out. For my family boating concise of laying out, water skiing, tubing, and throwing the tennis ball around. It is always so relaxing and a blast to just hang out on the water with the family. My family has had a boat since I was five so I have always had a boat through out my life. So when we go boating it reminds me of family memories and just a great time to just chill out. I am really looking forward to this weekend and spending time will my family. Is it friday yet!

Low voter turnout in Kentucky

Voting. Every couple of years people vote for who they want to run their city, state, country, and many more areas. Through out the years in some one every person complains about some reason why they do not agree what someone is doing to their city, state, and country. People always say how they would change things the people in charge do and how they wish they were different. But when it comes to voting time why do some people not vote. Why were the voting rate turnout so low in kentucky? Why do people complain but then still not vote. To me that does not make any sense. Even though people do not  like everything about a person who is running I feel like that should at least vote for the one person that has the most good things about them that they like. I believe people should at least vote for a person no matter what.

Adventures at St.Louis

This week I was lucky enough to venture back to the city of my birth; St.Louis, Missouri. I got to spend a couple of days enjoying what I used to see all of the time. I went with a couple of friends to venture the city. We woke up early on day and started our adventure at the Botanical garden. We walked around and looked at all the different flowers, plants, and trees. It was all so beautiful and neat to see a bunch of different plants that I have never even heard of before. Then we headed to the zoo. In St.Louis the zoo is so big, nice, and Free which is awesome. We saw every animal possible at the zoo it was so great. See the monkeys and zebras was my favorite part. Lastly we were lucky enough to get ticket to the Cardinals baseball game. We got seat so close. We were is section 150 right behind the pitching mound.   I could see the players faces crystal clear well almost. The cards won four to three. The whole day was such a blast. I was so happy to be back where I grew up! So if you ever get the chance to visit St.Louis take it and take some of the adventures I was able to do!

 

 

 

Family

Standard

Family. This weekend for me was fun of all family events. We had a family cookout, open house, and a fifty five year wedding anniversary for my grandparents. My family is one of those families that are loud, outgoing, and get right up in your face about everything. There is twenty seven of us all together in my family. It is so much fun when we all get together because it is just so many different personalties all together. So this weekend when we all got together for all of the events it was great. When we all get together it is always just feels great. You can just be yourself and you know you are welcome. It just feels so good to get the family together and hang out. Sometimes it is so many strong personalities it is hard to handle if you are an outsider but for us it is always just a great time. Family is just a great thing!

Time Management

When I was in high school and for a year after I have always worked out everyday. I have always been a runner and have always ran about four miles a day. But for the past couple year it has been so hard for me to stay on a routine of working out. This year has just been such a busy year I just haven’t been able to get into a routine of running. I know being busy is no excuse. It was so hard for me to figure out how to make myself exercise everyday. It is hard to get on a routine on  exercising when you do not really have someone making you work out. Now since I have a pretty set schedule of what my days consist of I have been able to make myself a written schedule of my day so I know when I have time to work out and I do it! If you are having trouble finding time to exercise or do something that you have been wanting to do then make a schedule for yourself maybe it will help you like it helped me.
