Life update: Flew out to Miami over the weekend (all expenses paid, thanks to UMG) to meet some of the best in the music industry (YMCMB & AStar Entertainment). On the side note, had some of them help me out with a radio project I’m doing as well as an interview I was behind of for work.
Wonder why I’m not active as much and just left with reblogging? Well.. Now you know. Haha.

This morning, I got to Penn Station and encountered an old blind man in his yellow jacket and dark military cap on. I kept an eye on him to make sure he was okay. He got off the same stop as I did - Washington Street. What I realized? None of the people surrounding him, adults and college students, took the time to help the guy go up the stairs.
I did it. As a matter of fact, I walked him to the courthouse where he needed to be. I took out my phone, Google maps the courthouse, and started my walk with him. I walked by the edge of the sidewalks so he wouldn’t go toward streets, then I let him hold my hand as we crossed the streets as he holds/uses his cane in the other. Walking a block and half off campus to the courthouse was probably the most priceless and satisfying thing I’ve done in forever. I felt blessed and so happy. It was like this was the moment I was waiting for.
I learned his name is Jim (I forgot his last name), a super sweetheart, and lives life to the fullest. He ALSO says he isn’t going to court to get sued or sue someone. AND that “with the (winter) weather, you learn to be a meteorologist sometimes.” LOL.
As I left him to security at the courthouse, I was on the verge of tears.. I don’t know why. I was happy, sad.. I don’t know. It was a feeling I just couldn’t explain. I guess I was happy I met him, sad that time went by too quickly, and just mad at the people who didn’t even bother helping him. I mean, they wouldn’t have got to meet a wonderful person like him!
I just hope I get to see Jim again and say he’s a charming man. I wouldn’t mind walking with him even it makes me late to class. (I wasn’t late, by the way. But I was pretty emotional on my way to class.) He may be a stranger, but he definitely knows how to look on the bright side of things. Gotta learn from him. I really hope he gets home safely and lives healthily. I made a friend today, and he is cool.
People need to take a break at life, and just.. Live and observe. Sometimes the people you encounter on the streets are the people you need in life.
It seriously irks me how people get SO worked up with their everyday agendas that they can’t even help someone for a couple of minutes to someone who’s struggling to get on with their own. Such a damn shame. It’s sick how some take everyday life for granted.
I JUST REALLY wanted to put this out there that.. It seriously sucks seeing someone struggle and see others go on. They say “treat others the way you want to be treated.” And that’s that.
I went behind the mic today at a Jazz radio station where my professor works at. He’s a really chill dude. So chill that he holds some of our classes there. I mean, the guy’s big time with his voice. Insanely incredible. Plaques on the wall, running the radio station.. So much admiration and inspiration one can take from seeing and hearing that.
After reading my first ever revised copy, I felt pretty awesome. Made me contemplate on doing radio as a career. I mean, I always wanted to host something and interact with artists and celebrities. You know, be that socialite? But you know what boosted it up even more? My professor’s compliment. “You sounded like dynamite in the beginning. And everyone behind me [students from class] agrees. You were on fire! But as you went on, you sounded unsure of what you were reading… You probably just need to laugh it out.” It may not be much, but his reaction surprised me. I was nervous. Hands were sweaty and a bit shaky. But I was glad I went through the whole copy. Receiving that type of compliment is like, a Christmas present.
All you need is that energy and determination. I’m glad I have an education, very grateful. I’m determined to succeed and undergo all the stress and hardships..
One day, I’ll repay those who’ve supported me throughout. Especially my mom who deserves all the achievements I receive my whole life.
If failure proceeds at one point, then let it be. Because I know I’ll learn from it.
I think I’m rambling now.
The Journalism/Media professors I have this semester are just amazing. Purely a-ma-zing. I’ve got a Pulitzer Prize winner, an artist, an Associated Press veteran, pretty known newspaper writers, and an outstanding radio announcer/DJ. They’re all legends in my book.
Not to mention, using Twitter is an assignment, as well as Blogspot and Wordpress. Pretty cool!
And my Multimedia professor watched a part of the Most Popular Girls in School with a friend and I. He was highly amused at the stop-motion filming. LOL. I thought it was pretty funny considering his age and he didn’t hear the audio.
Well, I think that’s all I have to update you guys on.
.. I still love SNSD, by the way! I listed them as the celebrities I’d love to interview. Hopefully, I can get that chance in the future.
that you’re not that person in anyone’s life.
Live with it.
They sure as hell aren’t stopping for you.
