New Job

Okay so I started my new job for Triad Management on Tuesday this week and I love it...yeah the hours are weird, from 3PM - 11PM 5 days a week between Mon and Sat with one day off each week besides Sunday, but it is all good. My social life gets a little hindered too, but I haven't seen that bad of affects yet. I am getting a hang of everything, but am still a little slow on some things. I pretty much input information and photos in the computer explaining in detail about bids on foreclosures and ladahdahdah, stuff that can be boring to some that don't like this stuff. I like it though and that is all that matters, right?
So since I wasn't working for a little while prior to this job I have become super lazy and it affects me at work. I think of the 5 hour energy commercial that says "do you feel tired at 2 o'clock and then 3 o'clock and then later at 4 o'clock and need that extra energy to get through your work day? Well we have the solution for you...." Yeah I totally feel that way, but am never going to drink energy drinks, I think they are disgusting, so none for me. Anyway I've developed a bad habit of drinking Dr Pepper to give me that needed energy during my work day. I have come to the point where I need to drink a Dr Pepper each day to have some energy, but I need to stop this soon, because I will start to gain unwanted weight. It is okay to drink it every once in a while in moderation, but maybe I should switch to water, because one it is way healthier for me and 2 it will give me reasons to get up and gain some energy aka go to the bathroom! So that is my plan, but it will be tough for me, since I don't drink water that much, so wish me luck!
Well, this is all I got, since it is late and I need to go to bed, even though I just got home a little over an hour ago, but I work tomorrow and need to do some things in the morning before I go back into work.

Apple in Hot Seat Re Post

Apple has been known to be an amazing company in the computer world as well as in the new advanced technology world. Apple offers products such as the iPhone, iPod, iTunes and iPad, etc. Through their iTunes stores, applications can be purchased or downloaded to help the customer or user of its products to better stay connected with the world and its resources and to be happy.

Every year in the month of June Steve Jobs has his annual conference where he typically announces new upcoming products that Apple will offer later that year. In June 201o, Jobs announced that there would be a new generation iPhone that will be way more advanced and better looking with its design. Its new name would be the iPhone 4G, meaning it is the fourth generation of the phone itself. The phone was later put out into the market in July and has been flying off the shelves like crazy.

Since the phone has been released it has been in the news recently with the idea of it having faulty equipment installed into its programming. I have added a few widgets and gadgets on my blog to help you search the iPhone through Google search, as well I added one that shows Apples recent headlines, so that you can see what Apple is doing in regards to making their company better. Last, but not least I added a poll for my blog viewers. You can take the opportunity to vote on it and I would highly recommend it, so that Apple can know what viewers like you think about Apple and the story about the iPhone 4.

I decided to re post my last video on the iPhone 4 and Apple. It was my best story idea and I think that it is a great story in regards to what is happening to Apple this week. Apple has been in the news for the past week, because the new phone has been having issues with its signal strength. Steve Jobs, the CEO of Apple has promised everyone that owns a phone right now will receive a free case to correct the problem. My question is will that really help it? I guess we will just have to wait and find out. Even though I am not an iPhone user, I have a Mac and I love it...Steve needs to step up his game to keep his customers happy.

Apple in Hot Seat

This week I decided to do my last video on the iPhone 4 and Apple. Apple has been in the news for the past week, because the new phone has been having issues with its signal strength. Steve Jobs, the CEO of Apple has promised everyone that owns a phone right now will receive a free case to correct the problem. My question is will that really help it? I guess we will just have to wait and find out. I interviewed a couple iPhone users and one Apple technician to get their imput on what they believe needs to be done. I think that Steve Jobs has his work cut out for him. Even though I am not an iPhone user, I have a Mac and I love it...Steve needs to step up his game to keep his customers happy.

Student Ambassadors

I used to be a Student Ambassador when I was first going to school here at BYU Idaho. I had a roommate who introduced me to the program and I have had many great experiences and memories that I will remember forever from my time as a volunteer. I had the opportunity to meet with the new directors and the administrative leader this week and I will say the program still sounds the same, but yet different. The program has new innovative ideas that will make the program that much better. I was able to interview Carl, who is one of the directors and he told me a bit about the program now. He was a ball of fire and I enjoyed talking with him. Too bad I couldn't interview Sister Morley, but she seems like a great asset to the program. Enjoy learning about the Student Ambassadors.

Cheap and Fun Dating

I have been doing a series of podcast's on dating tips and I thought that this would be appropriate for a story idea here at BYU Idaho. Since there is a lot of dating up here, I thought that I would interview people and see what their thoughts on cheap dating were. I think that I was able to receive some great feedback and see what the students really think about cheap and fun dates. I am a big supporter of cheap dates...especially ones that involve the park.

Amazing Cupcakes

I have always wondered how and why the Cocoa Bean in Rexburg Idaho became so popular? I have had a cupcake here and there from the cupcake cafe and was not that impressed, but was later informed by other students their reasonings on why they like the Cocoa Bean so much. I realized that everyone is different in their reasonings and I am glad that none were super biased. For the majority each student I interviewed really loved the Cocoa Bean, so in fact this is the place to go get your sugar high when you need a pick me up.

Interview

I had the privilege to interview Duncan and he told me some things about him and why he chose to come to BYU-Idaho. He was kind enough to let me interview him and find out some things about him and ultimately helped me with Final Cut Express. I asked him questions like, where he is from and why he chose to come to BYU Idaho and what his major is and what his plans were for when he graduates. He was a great sport and I had fun interviewing him for Comm 360.
