Last Day of Class

We finally got through all of our classes! I just wanted to say it was really interesting and fun to be in a class with you all and I hope you guys do well on your finals! Even if you lose motivation or just don’t feel like studying, end the year with good grades!

This class was really interesting because it got me into blogging–although I enjoy writing, I’ve never really blogged before so it was definitely hard because it’s not something I’m used to doing. I hope everyone had an enjoyable time!

Influence of Music

As I said before, my final blog is on music! I found an interesting article that shows the powerful influence of music on people, mostly teenagers. When I read it, I was shocked at how music can have a huge influence on the choices we make in everyday lives.

The more I thought about it, the more true it seemed–I mean, we’re influenced by our friends and family all the time, so why not something else we’re surrounded by 24/7?

Drone Delievery

I mentioned this in a previous comment, but UPS is testing out Drone Delivery and Amazon is testing out flying robot carriers to eliminate the use of people in the delivery process all together. Is our dependency on technology over human interaction getting a little extreme? I for one almost hope they don’t follow through with this idea.

Blog Project!

We made it through the class guys! it wasn’t that hard granted due to the fact that it was super interesting to begin with!

So for my final project blog idea, I’m doing places i want to travel! I’m posting pictures and little descriptions of all the places I want to visit before the impending doom of my death. There are so many places in this world to see that many people don’t know about. We have the cliche places like France, London, and Italy, don’t get me wrong i totally want to visit there, but we also have places like Turkey, Switzerland, and Croatia.

So be prepared to see some cool places!

Podcast Project

So i know that the podcast projects passed but here is a description of what i did…

At first i had no idea what to do cause what is more awkward than talking into a microphone to yourself about something random that someone may or may not care about. So basically i was like screw everyone and i would talk about a topic that i liked. I found a topic that was interesting to research and talk about but i also didnt have to talk about much…. MUSIC!

More specifically one of my favorite bands…Maroon 5!

I basically went through the history of the band and how the started. The podcast included their backstory, their acheivements, all four albums, and a couple of their songs from each album.

It was weird to make but it was also cool what i found out about the band that i didn’t know! I can’t wait until their 5th album comes out that they are currently working on!

‘Tis the season to be shopping, falalalala-lala-la-la.

With Thanksgiving and Black Friday coming and going, you know that Christmas/holiday season has officially begun. Stores are whipping out their holiday decorations and sales and the mall is packed with Christmas shoppers. Working at Abercrombie and Fitch, I can tell you personally that working the extended holiday hours at the mall the few weeks before Christmas is the most stressful experience ever for both shoppers and employees. First of all, the store will never be clean no matter how many times you refold that same pile of sweaters. Last minute shoppers are freaking out over what to get their loved ones for the holiday and, you know what, that freaks out the employees. And don’t get me started on trying to find a parking spot. It’ll literally take an extra hour to get to the mall, an hour to find a parking spot, and an hour to leave the mall because of the giant clusterfuck of cars and panicked shoppers who are trying to find the best deals on gifts. Why deal with all this stress when you can find even better deals online? I found that I save more on major deals when I shop online because I can stack promotion codes that stores usually don’t allow. For example, I recently bought a pair of Vince Camuto riding boots and Boutique 9 sneaker wedges, both retailing at about $200 each, for $160 together. I remember going into Saks on Black Friday and seeing the sneaker wedges alone for $120 (on sale). If you find the right deals at the right time, you can save tons of money on your Christmas shopping and shopping in general. And the best part is you didn’t even have to leave the confines of your comfortable bed. Shopping online allows us the convenience of avoiding crazy-eyed shoppers, long lines, and the ability to compare prices and deals to find the most wallet-friendly sales for this season of gifting. Of course, there are limitations in that you can’t really try on the items, see the quality of the items, and the hassle of returning them if they weren’t what you expected, but for the amount that you save, it’s probably worth it to give it a shot anyway. So take out your credit cards shoppers, get your Paypal set up, and get ready to hunt the best deals and the best gifts for this season because ’tis the season to be shopping.
