Don't pretend you EVER forgot about me

Sorry blog readers and jumpers, my computer has been down for sooo long, and considering the fact that we've been snowed in for over a week now doesn't help at all. Being home and not even being able to blog...stupid Dell computer! Haha but on the bright side...I've had a chance to procrastinate on homework, which really excites me because I usually get the assignment, and BOOM I get it down. And I've found that procrastinating and taking your time pays off! I'm not as stressed, and therefore I feel like I'm doing better on my assignment. What do I do when I'm bored and can't even get outside the front door, make outfits and eat of course! DUH!
And I truly feel the pounds packing on so I've been doing some exercises to Gilad. Mostly jump roping and ab stuff. But of COURSE the 4th day I try to exercise, woop there it is! We have school. So again, blogging's been delayed. Sitting, waiting, wishing for my new laptop! (Oh and college too!)

Speaking Out

So a couple months ago some producers from 'Speaking Out' (a mother and son who want to do a local talk show on teens facing issues today) stopped by to talk to us at Kids of Honor. I was immediately interested and signed up ASAP. They got in contact with me about a week later and I went over to Salisbury University to shoot the broadcast. It was an incredibly warm environment, they had snacks for us in the "green room" and they really did make me feel very comfortable. When it was interview time, me, one other teen, a college student, and the interviewer who was also in college chatted about genetic engineering, genetically modifying animals, vegetarian vs. meat eaters, economy, robotics- just a wide variety of things teens had opinions on. Here's the link to the video on youtube:
I just really loved the idea of it and was super psyched to be a part of it...and I'm on youtube? sweet! =]
