There really is no genre or medium that I stick with when I do art. But many of you known me as a photographer is because I’ve been doing a lot of photography recently. It’s not because that’s the only thing I know how to do, but it’s because that’s the only thing I can do at the moment.
Just shortly after I submitted a 2-week notice at my job with the Augusta Chronicle. I checked with the private party classified advertising rep about placing an engagement announcement. She mentioned that I can get a free placement in while I still have my work status at the Chronicle. As frugal person, my eyes are fixated on free deals. As a result, I submitted a quick announcement before Hector even proposed to me. I was able to convenience him that the monetary value is worth it to do it for free, even though the timing is a little premature. Unfortunately, I never got a copy of the newspaper, but I was able to grab a screenshot online.

I love writing, and I started to enjoy reading as well. As a kid, newspaper has been fun to me. My grandpa would buy newspaper at 7-11 almost everyday to look at lottery number and the stock market. The papers he collected soon piled up to a mountain. Grandpa didn’t want to throw them away because they make a good table cloth. My sister and I would fold them into shapes of animals, cut them into paper dolls, and doodle over them. Never did I pay attention to what was exactly on the paper until I reached 18.
A lot of people ask me, what do I do for my job. and I always have a hard time finding that one word or one sentence that perfectly describes it. Now that I have submitted my 2-week notice, I was told by my boss to write a list of everything that I do and how I do it. I am amazed at how much. I’ve learned during the time I’m at The Augusta Chronicle. I will continue to cherish the experience and all the awesome colleagues here.
My goal as a leader is to be available and reachable to help. My greatest taboo of life is to say that I’m busy. I don’t ignore any messages. If anybody emails me or call me, I should be able to reply within the next 3 hours, unless I’m out of town or I’m dead.
My philosophy is to never say that I’m busy, because believing myself to not be busy allows me to do more things. I look down on those who find excuses to no do things.

This semester, spring 2012, I am in COMP 4950, also known as the Book Editing and Production course.
Dr. Van Tuyll, everyone admits, is the best instructor for this subject. When I signed up for this course, I was expecting to edit blocks of paragraphs, design layouts, and read like crazy. However, never would I have thought that the text we edit was going to be published into an actual book.

I’m pretty sure at this point you guys know my experience with flying. If there are ranks in experience, I can say that I’m a senior flyer. My flying experience is heavy: Airlines from Delta, U.S. Air Ways, American, United, Continental, AirTran, to China Airline, All Nippon Airways, Eva, Melanesian Airline, and Korean Airline.

This title of the blog is the name of a song, and I’m sure you guys have heard of it. And oh yes, I have been knocked down flat o the floor. It’s been a while since I posted any blogs. I had been sick for a while, and later I got into some depression.
What’s more saddening than knowing that your alma mater’s name is no longer the same since you graduated?
Having a really infamous person to change your alma mater’s name to something really stupid and then claim himself as the president of both your alma mater and the new school.
