Walk the Line


I saw Walk the Line the other night and I thought it was very good. The movie is a chronicle of country music legend Johnny Cash’s life. The movie started off from Johnny’s early days on an Arkansas cotton farm to his rise and fame. I really enjoyed the movie because there was a lot of information about Johnny’s life that I did not know about. I thought the movie was very entertaining and I would recommend going to see it.

Central Market

The other night my DG family went to Central Market to eat dinner. I was super excited because this was the first time this year that we have all gotten the chance to get together. (My family includes my grand big, big, twin, my little, and then my twins little). Usually at a function we are missing one or two. This was my first time to eat at Central Market and it was a little overwhelming. There Cafe on the Run includes several featured areas intended to give customers the most extensive selection of options for fresh, convenient meals. I was super impressed with their olive bar which had twenty five different types of olives. Central Market offers a variety of food such as: fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, poultry and fresh fish from California and around the world. My meal tasted like a home cooked meal minus the work of preparation.

Boo at the Zoo

Today, a few of my sorority sisters and I volunteered at the Fort Worth Zoo, decorating for the 7th annual Boo at the Zoo. We spent two hours tearing cheese cloth. We placed this cheese cloth on trees and bushes surrounding the zoo to give the illusion of spider webs. Boo at the Zoo is wildest trick or treat event in town. It is a safe and fun way for families with young children to enjoy Halloween. Children and adults alike are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes and come prepared for a lot of entertainment. This festive decorated event is filled with animal encounters, crafts, keeper talks, and 40 treat stations for children to receive safe candy from volunteers. Last year I volunteered in the children area. I worked with the young trick or treaters to help them make pumpkin bird feeders. I enjoyed the opportunity to see all the participants dressed up in their costumes having a special Halloween adventure at the Fort Worth Zoo. My sorority sisters and I felt the time spent volunteering this afternoon at the zoo was for a very worth while and important cause.

Cross Canadian Ragweed


This weekend I went to College Station to visit some old high school friends. We went to Cross Canadian Ragweed’s CD release party. I was excited because they had played here in Fort Worth last Tuesday but I was unable to attend. The concert was a lot of fun and was completely packed with fans. Their new CD is good and I would recommend buying it. This group is country with a little rock n roll mixed in with their music. People who absolutely hate country music should listen to CCR because they might enjoy their style. I found out a few facts about CCR that I did not know. The four band members have known each other since kindergarten. It was not until after three of them had graduated from high school that they started to jam together. All the band members wanted to get out of Yukon, Oklahoma and thought music was a way to go.

Reflection

After reading a few case studies and from doing my own, I realized that most people blog to share their opinions and experiences. I got confidence for writing on my own blog, because I realized that no matter what I am writing about it will appeal to some type of audience. Once the audience relates to the blog they will continue to come back and read the updates. There are so many people that blog, and everyone has a different goal in mind for their blog. Blogging gives the opportunity to let your voice be heard and it only takes a few minutes to post. I think doing these case studies was a very good idea. Like myself I had no idea what a blog was when I started this class, and after doing the case study I feel like I have a better grasp on the blogosphere world and a different perspective on blogs. I think these same questions that our class used would be good questions for future case studies. In a year from now will people still be blogging for the same reasons from bloggers today? It might be interesting to find out how people started blogger? Had they been following other people’s blogs and finally decided to make one for their own? This might be something to look into!
