I was tagged on my friend Linda's page over at Beautiful Mustang. The rule to her tag was that I had to post the 6th picture from the 6th folder on my computer, and then blog about the picture.

I was a bit scared to find out what kind of picture was in store for you all to see. I told my boyfriend what I had to do, and he said, "oh, it doesn't matter, cause you can always just make it up." But that takes the fun out of it, right? Anyways, thats not my style. I must play fair.

My little sister, Sammi Jo, is pictured here closest to you. Her number is hard to see, but it is 35. Number 35 is a one heck of an athlete, and I make it a priority to attend every single game that I am available for. She Is a 3-point shooting guard...who I honestly thing is a stud. She always has a great attitude on the court, and keeps her teammates motivated.

It is funny that I had the chance to post this picture, because my mom and I had dinner together tonight and she was telling me about Sammi's latest sports news, which is not good. She just tried out for her high school softball team and made the JV's . She has always had a bad elbow, and it has lately been bothering her a lot more. One of Sammi's friends' dad is a doctor, so he felt around on it one night and said it didn't look good. He got her into a special doctor right away. After an MRI there was bad news. She has a torn tendon somewhere in her elbow that hasn't had the opportunity to heal correctly because she is so active. The tendon has already caused nerve damage down through Sam's arm. To make things worse the Doc suggests that Sam sit out for this softball season.

My mom says she doesn't know if she has really accepted the fact that she will not be playing softball this season. If she tried to play it would cause even worse damage, which could keep her aways from her best sports, basketball and Volleyball. I wish Sam luck and happy healing.

We get from it what we put in it, &
Just like an echo,
it often gives us much more.

During my frist 2 1/2 days at work I had to read this book called Wizard of Ads. It was an awesome book that was straight to the point and had no problem being a bit rude. After each short story/chapter is a great quote. as I went through I wrote a lot of them down, and now I have a collage of these sticky notes on my new desk:) Some will come in handy to send to family or friends when they need a nudge of encouragment:) Quotes and words of wisdome always make things better and happier!

Good quote that I wish could be put to use

He who overcomes others is strong,
but he who overcomes himself is mightier

Characters Welcome

Today is my last day with the Daily News as a "marketing assistant," aka paper pusher. I will start my new job in the sales department for Idavend Braodcasting on Monday. I am a bit terrified, and don't really know what I have gotten myself into.

This brings me to the video posted above. This was my first video project that I did this past summer during my internship as a video reporter. It was my second day, and they sent me out. I was happy with my video, but most of all thrilled to meet such an interesting character.

The variety of characters, is what I will miss from my paper pushing job. I talk to all kinds of different people, and for some reason they tend to spill the stories to the poor old girl handing out free papers. It makes me chuckle inside as I sit there and nod. Most of them are just venting about how the Daily News is changing from afternoon to morning delivery :)
