Going to fast

I'm sitting here searching the Internet and well I stopped to think, wow I am almost done with school.
I have had by far an amazing three semesters at Cal State Northridge, even though it has been tough the last two semester, I enjoyed every minute of it.
This semester, being assistant sports editor has kept me really busy, but the rewards of getting a story out for people to read has been awesome.
I've been fortunate that in the past two weeks I've been to UCLA, and Cal Berkeley. At those games I photographed the games, which I prefer doing then writing and I'm loving it.
I realize though, I have to write to become a better journalist. I am determined to do more as well as taking more photos at sporting events
Well blogging family I have three more weeks and school will be over. Hopefully I will be writing more on here when I am done.

UCLA..Pauley Pavilion

Yesterday was the first time I walked into Pauley Pavilion at UCLA, I know as a sports fanatic, why haven't' I been there before? I don't know, but I now can say I went.

When I walk into any sports arena I feel like a child in a candy store, they are filled with so many stories of triumphs and struggles. And to be part of that for just a moment is an incredible feeling.

I was more in awe of being in a place where John Wooden, the greatest college basketball coach to live, won all those championships and led players into becoming great professional NBA players.

As soon as I walked in I went down to the court, so I can take photos for the Daily Sundial.
Looking up at all the championship was cool.
Then when the UCLA fans came out and starting their chat of U. C. L. A. brought chills down my back.
The game on the other hand was a blow out for UCLA, who beat CSUN 83-50.
But at the end of the night I am blessed to have the abilty to do what I love and that is covering sports.
