Last Week of Classes 4/26/10

School is coming to a close, for those of us not out in the real world yet. There are but two more days until we do nothing from Thursday to Sunday night where we cram for our exams right after they happen. I think that every year I always tell myself that “this will be the year that I do not procrastinate. This year I will get my work done ahead of time and feel good about it.” That never seems to happen. My good intentions are always squandered by the fact that school/schoolwork/projects/tests are not that interesting. I hope that the real world is more interesting and I can find a job that is interesting and awesome and I won’t feel the same way about work as I do about school.
The future is exciting and intimidating all at the same time.

4/19/10 Ticket Giveaway Day

I gave away some tickets today. I like giving gifts. I gave these gifts to you, the listeners, from the bottom of my heart. I recieved them for free from the people who are in charge of my radio station in order for me to give them away on my show. That doesn’t mean I meant the gesture any less. I hope the winners of the tickets enjoy my gift and know that it counts as my christmas and birthday gift to you for the year.

Winding down the year April 12, 2010

Now that the school year is winding down, it’s time for reflection. I’ve now been working on The Cassette Deck for two semesters. I am a much different person than I was when I joined this show. My tastes have broadened and I have re-developed my life plan. I feel like if I’m not constantly working to better myself then I’m wasting my potential.
How do you feel about change? I like change, it’s exciting, and as the name implies, new. I feel like humans thrive on change, whether or not we like it. If we led stagnant lives we would have nothing to look forward to.
In the spirit of reflection, I want to know if you have any suggestions for the show. Please leave me a comment and let me know.
