Our community lives in a made up town where the biggest attraction is our cheese factory. We have the largest Kraft Cheese factory in America and crime is at an all time low because people are so happy with the kraft cheese singles.

Live Blogging Good or Bad?

Live blogging is a writing that is happening on the moment whether it is news, shows or even an event. When I first came a cross a live blogging I thought it was very interesting and wanted to keep looking at it more. There are various types of live blogging and I must say I was very impressed with the ones I watched such as the sports and certain TV shows live blogs. But, there is also other types of live blogging that can be very opinionated and also biased. This types of live blogs can definitely alter how I might look into the information and also change my perception of something I love dearly.  It can either make me go against what I thought I loved or it can me hate that live blogging a lot and also it can also make me pursue my loving topic much more as well. 

Positive os live blogging is that it will keep me updated what is happening on the event. Maybe I am at work and can’t watch TV I can simply find a live blog where I will be able to read live time data from what is happening during the event. This is very good because it can make one very informative and also in the loop of what is happening. Live blogging can be very convenient. 

A Taste of What To Expect

Hello fellow classmates. My name is Teddy and I am a mechanical engineering major here at Rutgers. I’m a junior but I’ll probably end up having to do an extra semester.

I have an interest in many things, the first of which is extreme sports. I have been skateboarding and snowboarding since the 4th grade however I still don’t have the skills to show for it yet. Among my skills in skateboarding and snow boarding I have a talent for acrobatics. Flips and aerial spins was my specialty in my high school break dance club.313_22988484510_3091_n

Another topic I am very interested in is more of a guideline than anything, but I like to just have fun. It is how I live my life and it’s how i base my personality. The most important thing that I try to focus on lately is cars. As a kid I always liked going to the classic car show with my friends and family and just looking at all the neat cars. From the 67′ Chevy Impala to the 2013 Subaru Impreza Wrx Sti, I have always been fascinated at the amount of integrity going into these cars. And since I’m on my way to becoming a mechanical engineer I would love to focus more on engines or the suspension of cars.

When I’m not spending the majority of my time outside skateboarding or messing around with cars, I spend my indoor time either working at Sports Authority or just aimlessly wandering Youtube for new and interesting music. Here’s my latest favorite song.

Well that was a little taste of myself. So very nice to spend a class with all of you!

(That’s how we say Hello everyone, My name is… in Portuguese 😀 )

I was born in Brasil and lived there my whole entire childhood & half of my teenage years until I was 13.  After the age of 13, I moved to the United States and it’s today what I call home.  Learning the English language and coming to a completely different country was not easy for me, mainly due to the language and culture. Even today I have some difficulties with the language and various mistakes when it comes to my grammar and pronunciation.

I am currently a Junior and pursuing a major in Human Resources. I am very satisfied with my choice of major. Spare time is not in my calendar, I am loaded with classes from 9:00 am to 5pm and when I am not in class I am interning at United Stationers.  This summer I got very luck and was chosen for an internship with United Stationers.  This internship is allowing me to work hands with the human resource department.  I believe that this internship is only strengthening my passion and love for Human Resources.

During the weekends I tried to catch up onImage my TV shows and some trending music. Some shows that I have become obsessed with are Scandal, Mistress and Orange is the New Black. All three shows are a little bit girly, so fellows I don’t think you would really enjoy them! When it comes to music, I am very open. I don’t really have a favorite band or taste I just like to hear what ever sounds nice. But, I must say I am not a big fan of rock, heavy metal and hip-hop.  One of my all time favorite song is a song called:

 You Give Me Something by James Morrison 

This song means a lot to me and it does not mater how old it gets or how many times it gets played as my ringtone or in my Itunes playlist, it will be forever my favorite song.

Overall, I am a very down to Earth and open-minded person.

I am very easy to talk to and I am very excited to meet everyone in this class!

Salvete!

That means hi in latin! I’m Kat, a junior at RU majoring in English and double minoring in Latin and Classics. I’ve always loved reading, and I have studied Latin for 7 years now. People ask me what I plan to do with these degrees after graduation, and I think the possibilities are endless. I’m interested in publishing, editing, or writing for a sitcom.

I work part time as a cashier and in my spare time I enjoy sewing and watching videos of puppies. One really cute video is the live Shiba Inu puppy cam, found here. I had a dog growing up, but now I have two hermit crabs as pets. I really love dogs, and when I was younger I wanted to be a veterinarian; however, math and science are not my best subjects (I’ve never even taken pre-calc!) so I decided to follow my other passions. I plan to get a french bulldog as soon as I am living on my own.

look how cute… 🙂

I am from north Jersey and I love spending time outside, hiking at Ramapo Res. or having picnics in the nature center in my town. Another fact about me is that I follow a gluten free diet, due to Celiac’s Disease, although sometimes I cheat and eat things that do have gluten because they are so delicious and I can’t stop myself. I like to cook healthy meals and try out recipes I find online. Finally, I spend a lot of time on the internet, so I am hoping to enjoy this class a lot.
