This was actually an assignment for my Web Media Design class (which I highly recommend to any fellow computer-addicts), and it basically told us to depict our view of Baker. Not sure of which angle I wanted to take on this, I thought I would add basic elements and concepts of what I have experienced thus far.
The picture of me crossing the little pond reflects the paths I've had to cross and courses I've had to take as a college student. Sure there's a bridge right behind me that will get me to the other side in half the time, but the adventurous side of me chooses the rocky road that might have more of a risk while crossing, but it's also a shorter distance.
The picture where I'm sitting on the bench nearby the small pond is conveying the fact that you never know what to expect. Expect the unexpected; but also enjoy the surprises as they come.
The horse-back riding picture in the background is pretty self-explanatory. Those that know me, know that I am deathly afraid of any and all things that are not of the human specie. Why? I have my reasons, lol. Anywho, I set aside my fear to try something new and in college, you sometimes have to put your fear behind you to accomplish something that can turn out to be rewarding in the end. That's my basketball coach by the way, helping me mount that ferocious creature, ha.
And that is my Baker perspective :)

So this is my redemption post as I will try to get 2-3 posts up a week. Managing another blog for my university (www.bakerubloggers.wordpress.com) is hard enough, so bear with me. As for basketball, we are officially hosting the 1st round of playoffs vs. Avila (the team we lost to at the buzzer of playoffs last year) and our sweet revenge couldn't have been staged any better. I'm pretty pumped. I'll definitely let you all know how that turns out.
As for everything else in my life.. it's pretty much made. Ha, jk.. but God has really been good to me. I can't thank Him enough, and I'm so grateful for the opportunities and people He's put in my life to get me to where I am today.
Oh yeah, and my mom is coming to visit on Thursday! Yeeeeeeeeaaaah BUDDY! Haha, this will be interesting ;)

You know how things are always done better the second time around? Whether that is painting a picture or running a mile — the second time around always trumps the first.
Well, I feel like school can be the same way, as it is divided into two semesters. Fall semester is like your preparation and you’re more prone to making lackadaisical mistakes than opposed to now, because at the time, you are just coming back from a relaxed summer vacation. In this case, you’re coming from a 2-3 week break (if even that) where you still have some of that school knack in you. During the summer, especially if you are far from college like me (Arizona), you might even start to miss the people from school, so you get anxious as well to start school up again and reunite with your peers that helped ease your rollercoasting college days.. until of course, the reality of 10 page papers and 3 hour exams comes into play.
At any rate, spring semester officially begins tomorrow, Wednesday, January 27, 2010, and I feel unprepared for some reason. Yes I have my schedule, checked my alerts, holds, and any other hindrances that constantly appear on the student portal, and it seems that I have everything set, yet I still don’t feel ready. Thankfully the first week is a short one and I can use the weekend to fully recuperate and mentally prepare myself for another long 20 weeks or so.. or at least ’til spring break.

I first seen this on The Best Damn Sport Show's infamous countdowns for top Sports Bloopers and this ranked as #1 (go figure). I couldn't stop laughing and immediately took to the internet so I could watch this horrific scene over and over. I honestly couldn't imagine what was going through his head after the 50th screw up. Haha, he literally messed up EVERY single highlight. I was *DEAD* at the basketball highlights though! "REGGIE MILLER LOOKS GOOD!" Lol. Anywho, just enjoy and lemme know your thoughts! As if I can't already guess! Lol
