i'll decide later.

End of another great day

I feel like writing right now, mainly because I enjoy it. Today was yet another great day. I missed the train, and that was annoying. I walked up, just as it was leaving. It sucked. But, I got to work 15 minutes late, and no one cared... just myself.

I've been working on this new wipe effect for the news, and its turning out FREAKING GREAT. I'll post pictures when I feel like its better.

Speaking of work, I applied for another job at my place of employment. Thats right, I am fairly crazy, but I feel like i'm really mobile and I'll get more hours etc etc. I'm kind of doing a lot, but getting paid for it too. I love news, and an environment where I prove myself, gain more trust, and progress, is perfect for me. The GX Department likes me (i hope), editing might or might not, but the reporters love me!

Today Jed Boal stopped me while I was eating lunch to tell me that he loved my graphic I did for his package! I thought it was to clouded and annoying, but a producer, an editor, and the reporter said it was great! So thats good. Today I edited a peice about premature babies, and the things they're doing at the U. Shelley Osterlow is the reporter for those, and she said that I did a great job and gave me props. IT MADE ME FEEL GREAT!!!!!

I guess I'm going to make it in this crazy business. All those times of worrying about getting a job seem to have paid off. This is the most perfect place for me. My bosses are great, and are SO EXPERIENCED and do such great jobs. Holy crap. Its almost like getting paid for learning and having fun. Actually that is what it is. When I go home, all I want to do is make cooler graphics and make things better. I'm so addicted to news!

Spice Girl Reunion! BLESSED!

so my life is complete.

the spice girls are back together.

thanks goes to dave land on the tip.

xbox modding!

So over the next little while, you're going to hear about my xbox modding adventure. My roomate (tyler) has an xbox, and I told him about kevin's awesome xbox. He was impressed. Since I know my (speeding, 3 tickets in one stop) friend kerry, i got a mod chip for cheap, and we're going to have a fun install party.

I'll let you know whats up, and the sort.


weight loss?

So today at my home, i weighed myself. Kind of sad. I'm going to make a couple steps towards getting NOT FAT!


anyone who knows me knows that I love oreos. I'm not going to do it anymore. NO MORE OREOS. Moving back to salsa!

2-- Eating regularly.

I haven't eaten regularly in years. I'm going to start/continue eating breakfast regularly, and making a morning routine.

3-- Cardio

More cardio! I'm going to start playing tennis (provided I can find a partner) then increase cardio gradually till i'm playing basketball!

Thats whats happening.

Stop Looking for JOBS!

Holy cow, I have to chill. I really have this huge itch to report, but I'm in graphics and need to stay here. I'm going to get some friggin great experience in this department, not to mention editing, and it'll look way better on my resume. PLUS, if I make a resume tape, and create a story that is meaningful, it'll be a great advancement for my tape. I've got to sincerly become friends with reporters, and then they'll help me out.

Side note, I did some graphics for a story about soda yesterday, and Ed Yates was the reporter. I made them great, and he really appreciated it. I think he was genuinely happy about it. It made me happy. Jed Boal introduced himself, all the reporters seem to be more friendly with me every day. This is going to be a good experience.

gamer nerds read this, others, move along.

Nintendo's press conference is in an hour, and if they've got any shot of having this current gamecube exclusive owner in the next generation, they better unvail something HUGE. pics are already at engadget.

If I knew the pricepoint, and I could buy a console tomarrow, I'd buy an xbox360.

plain and simple.

My life doesn't suck!

Thats a quote from a movie, by the way.

My life is awesome right now. I don't think its ever been better. I graduated, moved to slc, still can keep my old job and work when I want, start my newest job tomarrow, have a loving family that supports me, etc...

I really really am so happy to be here right now. Its not the same as a super depression high (because depresson goes both ways for me sometimes, but its still not bipolar) because I legitametly moved to slc, and got a new job, and all that stuff.

So yesterday I edited a package, and it was for the AM show. Fortuantly, that gave me enough time to be really picky about it. I guess it was good enough for the morning show, but it also ran througout the day! I watched it at home yesterday @ 5pm! HOW WEIRD WAS THAT?! A story that I edited, had a KSL logo attached to it, and I watched it at home. AND I was happy with it!

Life is great, and this post isn't meant to rub salt in anyone's wounds, but i don't think this year could have been any better.

myself, keeping it real. Posted by Hello

mi familia Posted by Hello

my parents, terri, and myself! Posted by Hello


I'm living in my new apartment. the only problems:

1-- I think my TV card is dead.
2-- I'm afraid of getting crap jacked from my car

i think thats about it. My place is rad, and I live downtown. Today my sis dropped me off @ wal-mart, then I took trax back home. Its pretty cool living in a place where I can just ride anywhere I want without using gas.

Anywho, i'm stoked.
