yikes..

The future is a scary thought sometimes. I’ve always been someone who just likes to live for now and put off things for as long as possible. I’m not saying I’m a procrastinator, but someone trying to have the most fun at every moment in time. However, soon enough that teenage dream(sorry Katy Perry) will wash away and I’ll need to start cracking down and getting my work done. I’ve already began this process when I came to college. I was always a smart guy and was able to get good grades while half-assing my work but I was in for a big surprise when Fall semester ended and I had a 2.5 GPA. I thought to myself over winter break about what I wanted to do with life and how I was going to do it. I came back to school in the Spring with a better head on my shoulders. I’m currently pre-Business here at USF and I will hopefully end this semester with a 4.0(I need a 86 on my last exam in Oceanography). As for the future I hope I can my bachelors degree here at USF and maybe even a Master’s degree in Sports Management from the University of Florida. My plans are by 26 to have a job with the Yankees or a Fortune500 company(Bank of America, Apple, Ford, IBM, HP, Nike, or Microsoft just to name a few). My dream would be by the age of 29 to have made enough money with my best friend, who is currently studying at a culinary school to become a chef, and open a restaurant somewhere in NYC or near the beach somewhere in Florida. Obviously my girlfriend Katie, will work PR for us as well. :) 

And thats my future..maybe its not that scary. Its kind of awesome! 

The Inglorious end of Mannyland

This is the end of another great era for an terrific athlete, unfortunately he will leave the game of baseball with such a sour taste in everyones mouth. Manny Ramirez is considered to be one of the greatest right-handed hitters of all time, carefree and a great teammate. His 555 home runs and 1,831 RBIs put him at the top of most lists and his .312 career batting average puts him in elite company with names like Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron, Alex Rodriguez and Ted Williams. The 12x All-Star has won two Worlds Series championships[Boston Red Soxs(2004, 2007)] and one World Series MVP(2004). However, he was known for failing to run out ground balls and move sluggishly around the outfield which displeased many fans. After his 2009 50-game suspension for violating the MLB Drug Policy Manny has failed to complete a full season or hit above .260. On April 8th, 2011 Manny Ramirez officially retired as a member of the Tampa Bay Rays after being informed of a violating the Drug Policy for the 3rd which would have meant a 100-game suspension. This cowardly move avoided this suspension and has lessened his chances of making the Hall of Fame. When you look at his stats or asks his teammates he is a 1st ballot Hall-of-Famer but with the many mistakes on and off the field he will most likely be remembered for his steroid-use or just forgotten entirely.

Amber - 311

This song is just so relaxing for me. It always puts a smile on my face and helps me through times when I feel unsure of myself. Its just the perfect song to listen to when I’m driving down to the beach or need to just get away from everything negative. 



Spring break is a time for students to get away from their academics. A time to relax, kick it at the beach and just take a break from the stress that college throws on us. Most of us like to catch up on that much needed sleep and then spend the rest of the time hanging out with friends. My spring break however consisted of working. I work for my father at his Century 21 Real Estate office. I spent 5 days putting up signs and doing random jobs for him. I did find a way to escape though and see some of my friends. I even got to go to a Yankees spring training game and snap some photos of my favorite team. The picture above is of closer Mariano Rivera of the New York Yankees during a game against the Toronto Blue Jays.  The history of spring break goes back to swimming coach at Colgate University, Sam Ingram, who brought his team down to Fort Lauderdale in 1936 to train at the Casino Pool. In 1938, sensing a marketing opportunity, the city hosted the first College Coaches’ Swim Forum at the Casino Pool; according to one source, by 1938 more than 300 swimmers were competing at the event, and a bacchanal was born. The tradition of college swimmers traipsing to Florida in droves continued well into the swinging 60s.

The Future of College May Be Virtual

The internet had changed the way people read the news, buy music, and make travel plans. Many people believe that the internet will change education in a drastic way. Students are already talking classes online, more than 20 percent of all college students have taking one online class.   Many have theorized that nearly all students will begin to take more and more classes online because it is cheaper and easier to access. No more having to pay for books or sitting in larger auditoriums will be necessary and student-teacher interaction will all be completely through webcam. This is the future for college education and hopefully it will be positive and efficient. 

Good Morning.

This photo right here really does represent who I am. I love just going to the beach and chillin. I’m very laid back and just like having a good time, which for me means spending all day on the beach with some friends or sports.
