busy weekend

It's been such a busy weekend, but it's also been so much fun.  Friday I had to do work for my internship.  We went in at one not knowing our tasks.  It turns out that we had to take 40,000 Sports Illustrated magazines and put them on ALL of the seats in the lower bowl of the stadium and the loge section.  It took us seven hours!!  We all were exhausted since it was probably 100+ degrees out, but we got a nice little reward last night for our hard work.  

Saturday was GAME DAY!  So we all got there at one and did our stuff, and we actually got to watch the last half of the game for once!! Unfortunately, Oregon beat us, but it was such an exciting game!  Before the Allstate halftime promo, I got to be at the south endzone on the field, and ASU made two touchdowns right in front of me!  It was amazing.  Even though it was a late night, yesterday was probably my favorite part of this internship experience with ISP Sports.  

Today I woke up and had to go to work, but it was sooo slow because of Sunday football.  Brooke and I got cut at 12:30, and our nice manager even bought us food since we didn't make any money.  Since we got out early, we got to go to the last Diamondbacks game of the season with Olivia!!  It was so much fun, and the Diamondbacks beat the Dodgers!! :)  Afterwards we celebrated the win with Los Compadres (Old Los), our fave mexican food joint.  It's been an amazing weekend.  Super busy, but I got a lot of work done, and still got to spend time with the ones I love.

there is "if" in life

go for the goal

I'm a junior in college, and it's finally setting in.  After this year, I have one more year of school and then I'm off to the real world.  I'm used to knowing how my future will play out.  I've lived in Arizona my entire life, and the first time I moved was to my dorm room, so I knew it was going to happen.  After school, I have no idea where I will live.  I have ideas of where I want to live, but who knows if I'll end up somewhere like Iowa? or North Carolina? instead of beautiful California.  Will I be waiting tables or still doing unpaid internships, or will I have the job of my dreams with a corner office?  It's all about who you know, research, and putting yourself out there.

Cameron Johnson, an entrepreneur and millionaire by the time he was 21, came and spoke to my management class last Thursday night.  He was inspirational.  Brooke and I got all giddy and nervous when we went up and asked him to sign his book for us after watching his speech in the front row of the class (that was my first time sitting front row!).  He said that if you want something, you have to ask for it.  Only you can control what you get, because if you don't bother trying, that something special will never happen.  

So, I'm going to start asking others for what I want, and most of all, I'm going to ask myself.  Here's a list of my goals that I want to accomplish starting now--not tomorrow, now.  

make fitness a priority
start researching careers & companies I want to work for
find internships for this summer in LA or here
be the best friend & girlfriend that I can be
get my homework done ahead of time
save up for my own car :)
hahaha someday :)

when it's bad it's awful

There have been so many songs that mean so much lately.  One of those, although it's been overplayed, is Love The Way You Lie by Rihanna and Eminem.  This song focused on domestic violence, and it sent shivers up my spine the first time I heard it.  Another song that you may have heard is 
Dance With The Devil by Immortal Technique.  
Below is the video.  
Take a listen.  
If everyone heard this song and took what it said to heart, there would be no violence in the world.  Not only are offenders hurting themselves, but they're hurting either their own families or the families of strangers.  
No one deserves to be a victim.
