Finals Update

The end of finals week is very near. I feel great about my grades thus far, and am mentally preparing to walk across that stage Saturday morning. The same class that had me start this blog had me write a research paper as a final exam on any area of social media. I decided to write about Native Americans and Social Media. Here are my findings: Native Americans and Social Media. I hope you learn something.

Final Semester? Graduation? So soon!?

Sorry it’s been a while, but I’ve been very busy. So here are some updates:

This is my last week interning with Clear Channel Asheville. I learned a lot, made great connections, and even managed to leave with an audition reel. I’ve also freshened up my skills in XHTML and CSS coding within Adobe Dreamweaver.

My photography skills have increased dramatically this semester, photos to appear soon! My lighting techniques still need work, but I am ten times better than I was in January.

My acting final seems to be going well, despite a battle with two GI viruses back to back. Present preliminary to professor tomorrow, he sees it again the day of finals. Which are next week! I can’t believe this semester has literally flown by!

Monday, I take the GRE, which I only started studying for yesterday! Many thanks to Olivia Bellamy for giving me her prep book!

My other two classes are going well, and Wind Song will finish strong with a final episode of season one on Sunday, May 6. Hopefully this fall, it will return for season two with Stefani at it’s head and a new co-host by her side.

Intro

Wind Song Talk Show is my project.

Wind Song episodes will be appearing here very soon. The show started in October 2011 and is still going strong. We discuss Native American (read indigenous) cultures and how they interact with the modern American culture. Issues such as politics, sovereignty, worldviews, and traditions. Basically, it’s two best friends discussing anything and everything Native.

It is our hope that we can educate and inform the masses that 1) Native groups still exist 2) not every Native culture is the same and 3) clear up the common misconceptions about and forced up on all Native Americans as a singular minority.

The radio show is hosted at Western Carolina University’s radio station WWCU-FM Power 90.5 (read ninety dot five). In the Mountains region of North Carolina, tune in to FM station 90.5.
