Yesterday I didn't come into work at HL because I volunteered for the senator of queens at her office. It was a great experience for me because it showed me what politics are like. She had me make phone calls and run errands. I decided to volunteer so I can add it to my college resume because I will be a senior this coming september! xD lol I also did it because at school I'm a part of the National honor society and we need to help our community in any way we can.
so right now im just here doing nothing bc of the team captain lol so i decided to post a blog because i havent in a while. I was out for a bit vacationing in Dr i had a blast i wish didnt have to leave :(
So, it's Monday & a new week. I missed Fridays' presentations because someone (Shelise) gave em the wrong address to the location. However, I will be there for this week's presentations. I did come in on the deliberation process. Remember people this is only the first presentation. If you lost, don't fret. Just improve. Start practicing as early as Wednesday for it & continue to practice until the day for you to present comes. Be sure to include all team members in the presentation as much as you can & as creative as you can.
I'm looking forward to be helping you guys. I'm going to be having a weekly staff meeting with each team to help them finalize their ideas & just to see where they are at. At 2, I'm leaving to head to the Source Magazine. I want to get that done & over with. Then tomorrow, I'm going to start writing my curriculum for my weekly journalism class... Bye Bye folks
So today we went to 42nd and 5th ave to the big library. We had a computer class about search databases. The class was alright but the weather really wasn't. When we came out, it was pouring and the majority of us were, UMBRELLA-LESS! So we all got soaked. Now we're back at the office, and I think by the end of the summer, we will be claustrophobic. We will be starting tomorrow, because of the weather. Quativea's account doesnt open AT ALL, though we keep changing the password, but lets see how that goes tomorrow.
Sooo being at the Source is crappy. I'm usually sitting around waiting to be told what to do. So now I have this assignment where I have to read this book full of smut about drug dealers & baby mamas & write a review on it. It has not been released yet so I guess I'm lucky... Woo hoo. The book is titled Welfare Wifeys.... A HoodRat Novel... =/ The title speaks for itself. I'm waiting for these kids to get here then 'm out at 3. I have to read this crap. I'm also tryna wait till the rain clears. Don't wanna get soaked.
Hello people. So I am here and I'm having a pretty good day. I'm getting Kathryn to come teach a memior class. I'm also going to have Sienna come in and teach a class. I'm working on getting Toni Renihold, a famous journalist from Thomson Reuters to come in and keep a journalism class. I think that would be great for you guys. As far as now, I'm teaching a journalism class on Monday at 12 pm. So be there...
Today is the second and final day of the Scavenger Hunt & this time I'm staying in. The guys did a lot yesterday, so we're just fixing up some stuff. Jalice and Kevin just left to finish the other tasks in Harlem and Downtown. I really hope we win, because yesterday was a tough day. We're just finishing up some stuff right now, hopefully everyone comes back by 4:55 ! Now let me finish the work.
So today was the 1st day of the Scavenger Hunt. It was okay I guess because the weather wasn't all that bad. Our group seperated, two boys stayed at the site, kevin and jalice stayed in Harlem, while carmen, lilly, and I traveled Downtown. We had to go all the way to Brooklyn. It was CRAZY! Then afterwards we went to SoHo. It was kind of nice seeing all the stores but then again fustrating since our goal was far away from shopping. We completed a few tasks on our paper and we were DEFENITELY tired. We had gone into one bank, CitiBank, and I have to say it was one of the best places we went too. We were so hungry and thirsty, but eager to win this so we had no chance to consume anything. When we got there, the ac was great and we saw a big jar of lemonade. OMG , I think we drank the whole thing to be honest. The manager wasn't there but one of the workers who seemed very important was interested about HarlemLIVE and we traded contact informations. Hopefully this benefits us later on. After that, we were just going wild searching for the places, until we FINALLY got tired and it wsa time for us to go back. Another day tomorrow !
Hey HL, today was the first day for most of you guys.. It was nice getting to see you & talk to you about this summer. However, I had to leave early because I have an internship at the Source Magazine. I'm here now & everyone is pretty cool. It's a very lax environment ... I like it here, I got right to work & by the way, one of the girls here, her name is Sky, she's beautiful. Anyway, I can't wait to come in tomorrow. I really want everyone to like me & I plan on getting acquainted with everyone... Great day..
