My day at KVUE

Posted on August 7, 2009 at 12:30pm 0 Comments

A couple Mondays ago, I had the opportunity to shadow at KVUE for a few hours. I got to sit in a meeting (heard the rundown of the 5 and 6:00 news), went on an interview with Noelle Newton, and sat behind the scenes of the 5:00 newscasts with editors and producers. It was really exciting, and although I was only there for a few hours, I did learn a few things along the way:

1. Info. and stories coming into the newsroom are way more juicy and scandalous than what's shown on TV. I… Continue

Hot Topic: Interracial and Interethnic Dating

Posted on July 23, 2009 at 3:00pm 0 Comments

I've been thinking about this hot topic all week, trying to figure out how to respond.

I have never been opposed to interracial and interethnic dating. In fact, I have several members of my family who have married outside of the culture. We have white, black, and even asian members of our family. Interethnic marriage, as far as I know, wasn't too big of a deal in my family--and I never thought of anyone as "white aunt" or "black cousin," just simply as my aunt or cousin. I love my… Continue

Health Class no longer required in Texas. Do you think this is right?

Posted on July 9, 2009 at 2:30pm 1 Comment

When I first heard that the state of Texas had elimated Health as a required class, I was quite shocked. In my opinion, Texas is battling too many issues to rid schools of the requirement. (Note: Individual school districts can still require students to take health.)

According to the National Center for Health statistics, Texas has the third-highest rate of teen pregnancy. This is problematic for many reasons. According to March of Dimes, babies born to teen moms are more likely to… Continue

Marriage and Divorce

Posted on June 29, 2009 at 2:00pm 3 Comments

I'm not married, nor do I plan to be in the near future. Lately though, with many of my friends getting engaged and married, I have become fascinated with the idea of marriage. But sadly, when I think of marriage, I can't help but think of divorce.

As someone who eventually does want to get married, I feel it's important to see why marriages don't work--so that I can try to avoid going through a crappy marriage a painful divorce. So I ask the question--why do so many marriages fail… Continue

On Relationships and Namecalling

Posted on June 20, 2009 at 11:39am 0 Comments

I'm 23, and done with college, done with my first year on the job. It seems that within the past year, everyone has decided to make a life altering change. Friends all around me are getting engaged, married or having babies. I guess that's just the next transition. I'd be lying to myself if I said marriage has not crossed my mind once or twice. But I am in no rush. I am in love with a very special person, who treats me well and respects me, and for now, that's enough.

Deciding to get… Continue
