The Komets fought hard to get to game seven in this series. I have been following this particular series from the beginning. It was tough knowing that the Komets lost the first two games on their home ice; however, the team has had a great road game record during the regular season. They won the next two games away on Missouri ice, making the series tied at two. They lost game five in Missouri, but came home and won in “the jungle” (Allen County War Memorial Coliseum), forcing game seven that happened tonight.

I decided to go to this game not only because it will be a tough, exciting game and there was sure to be a winner, but because I am completing a list of 101 Things to Do Before You Graduate. One of those things was to “Attend a Tin Caps or Mad Ants game and support your local sport teams”, and I am sure attending a Komet’s game falls under this category! So I can go ahead and cross #22 off the list! Continue Reading
While obtaining my degree, I do not want to just lay back and attend class and that is it. As a current freshman just finishing my second semester, I want to become a part of the university and get involved in some way. While bored and cruising the university website I found a list: 101 Things to Do Before You Graduate. This list pertains to things particularly to IPFW and also general college things.

I found this super interesting and it got me really excited! I started to think, has anyone done all of these things or most of them? There are some easy tasks to accomplish and some hard. The easy ones may include #19 play pool in the Stomping Grounds, #43 Lay out on a blanket on the lawn and study, and #48 Buy an IPFW sweatshirt, just to name a few. Some of the hard ones may include, #20 Study abroad for a semester, #60 Add to your Co-Curricular Transcript by completing Leadership 101, 102, and 103 and, #94 Partner with a faculty member in an Undergraduate Research project and present your work at a conference. Some of them are ongoing tasks that I can not say I completed until the end of school, such as meeting with a professor at least once each semester and collect as many free t-shirts as you can. I am thinking about doing as many of these items as I can. I will live by the “pictures or it didn’t happen” rule for all of these as best as I can! I think that would be really awesome! What do you think?
There are three things I am considering to do first, just because…: Continue Reading
I am always thinking about what I am going to do for my career. Once I get my degree and I am out of college, what are the steps I am going to take to start my career? I’m hoping to have something lined up even before I am out of college.
I know I want to be a federal agent of some sort. A field agent in a particular area. I want something that does not require me to be away from home weeks at a time. I want something I can do in a local area and be able to come home every night. I was considering the FBI as an option. I am not sure what kind of work schedule FBI agents have and how often they have to travel. Also, DEA seemingly would have to travel to different places as well depending on where the action is. I think it would be really cool to work in Washington D.C., our country’s capital. Continue Reading
The school semester is coming to an end and it is a very stressful time. I feel very stressed because there are so many end of the semester projects and tests that need to be completed. Only two more weeks of class left, this week and next week. Then it will be finals week. I believe all of my finals occur on Monday and Tuesday. So after then is when I will be done. I certainly can not wait until I do not have to attend class during the summer. I am just going to relax and enjoy the summer, besides working at the hospital. That is what the summer is for. Sometimes, near the end of summer break I want to get back to school, because there is so much free time in the summer. I am not going to let that happening. I plan on making this summer a great one. I want to do a lot of things this summer. I am not sure what those things are yet, but they will definitely keep me busy.
As of right now, I am extremely busy with schoolwork, so hopefully I can get through these next three weeks with good grades and I can take a sigh of relief.
At 1:00PM today I shook my first boss’ hand as I clocked out for the final time at my first place of employment as a teen. I was originally hired in May of 2008. I have put in four years of work there, and I think it is time to move on. It was not going to be easy for me to work two jobs and go to school, so I am sticking with my new job. It feels great to be moving on and doing something new. I will visit the grocery store every once and awhile when I need some groceries. I definitely will not forget all of the people I have worked with and the experiences I had at the store. All of the laughs that were caused by all of the screwing around will never be forgotten. There are some things I had a tough time working with and that I thought I could fix, but it did not seem like I could make a big enough difference to make the work easier for everyone. It is a small store will tightly knit employees so there was plenty of drama to go around, and that is something I will not miss. There is drama at my new place of employment as well. I think there is a bit in every workplace. Continue Reading
When you have weight loss goals or goals to be more healthier, as do I, it is sometimes hard to maintain consistency with those goals. A person may want to be well fit, but it takes hard work and determination to do this. It takes consistent exercise and practice. Everyone hits speed bumps along the way and I think that is what I have done recently. I have not been paying close attention to what I have been eating and I just do not feel the way I want to. Earlier on in the year, I was doing great. Running almost every other day and watching what I ate, including my portions. I lost sight of that for a little while, but now that warmer weather is here, I think I am seeing the motivation come back. Continue Reading
Last Friday, the Mega Millions Jackpot became the largest amount in history. You better believe I bought tickets for the drawing. I was not very hopeful seeing as everyone else in the U.S. was buying multiple tickets to try to cash in on some luck. The previous Friday the jackpot was $290 million. I bought tickets for that one, because I thought that was a pretty large jackpot than normal. I did not win anything that night. I missed buying tickets for the following drawing on Tuesday when still no one had all six numbers match on their ticket. After that, ticket sales boomed everywhere with record sales.
Everyone was talking about the jackpot on Friday, the day of the big drawing. Someone was sure to win. I was at work when the drawing took place, and looked up the winning numbers when I arrived home. Not a single winning ticket was in my hand. Oh well. It was worth a shot right? One out of 176 million chances to win.
