My First Blog!!

I want to start off by saying that I promised myself I would NEVER start blogging. Then my sister got me hooked. I love looking at her blog to see what she's been up to lately. Especially since we live so far away. :(

As for my first official blog, I guess I will tell a little about myself.
I am 21 and a senior at THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY!! It is truly amazing here. I came to
OSU on a full 4 year scholarship based off an academic minority status. I guess being Appalachian can help you out! I am majoring in strategic communication (PR and Advertising) with a minor is Studio Art Design (digital imaging).

My true passion was always broadcasting and working in media relations, but the competition is so high that I thought I would never have a chance. Well, God proved me wrong (thankfully) and I received one of the greatest opportunities ever! I am now interning with The Big Ten Network. It has been so much fun already and I'm just getting started! I have attended the Coach Tressel conferences on Tuesday mornings, football player interviews after practices.(I just filmed Beanie Wells and Jim Cordle yesterday, as well as, Brian Hartline, Robiskie, Lawrence Wilson,JAMES LAURINAITIS, and a few others but I can't recall who they were), I've livestreamed soccer games, filmed highlights for field hockey, and will be doing a lot more in the future! I just talked to my boss (he hates that I call him that) and I will be going to the OSU football games for post-game interviews. He even said something about setting up our own corner for one-on-one interviews. How awesome would that be?!?

My lifelong plans are finally coming together, and I just may actually be happy with my career. Life is great!

Jodie, Welcome to the world of blogging. I hope all is well with you. If you could help me out and some how help OSU beat Meeeeechigan, that would be great. No one likes Michigan except for their delusional fans. Speaking of crazy fans...Roll Tide! How cool is it that I get to watch football games with your big sister?!?! She's cool and she puts up with Ben and me during games. :)
Hope to see you soon.
