I had the wonderful opportunity of getting hired this past Semester at the local McDonald's. it feels good to be making my own money because God knows I was broke.
SIU has taught me a lot. College has definitely been one of my best and sometimes one of the hardest times in my life. But in the the end, without SIU I don't know where I would be. Probably somewhere in the military… OR NAHH
Well I have only been here at SIU - Carbondale for only about a month and a half. But so far, I really enjoy my time here. I've been going to class and I really can see me doing well here, and I have already made a number of wonderful friends. I am very excited for this new chapter in my life. I have uploaded some pictures of my dorm and the SIU campus in a nifty slide show below.
Earlier this month I went to my summer orientation at SIUC. It was awesome! I recieved good insight and I am very excited to be starting there later in August!! We drove down there, and It took about 5hrs and 45min. I caught a slight cold which may ahve affected my mood, but overall I still had a wonderful time down there in Carbondale, IL with Aunty Cathy.
Me and my group at Free Spirit Media finally recorded our first story! We were reaching out to the public about how they felt about Chicago's youth.

Got a new job with Free Spirit Media @ Tribeca Flashpoint Media Arts Academy as a reporter. So far the experience has been great. This is quite an amazing experience. We get to work with the newest technology to create news stories and blogs, as well as current social media such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Vine. We will use these things to create well developed, and professional stories that hopefully will impact the City of Chicago in a positive way. Once we start creating stories and conducting interviews, I will post some link here on The Calvin Mennyweathers Blog.
