Multimedia in Sport Intro Blog Post

Hey everyone! It's been a few weeks, and most of you may think I haven't posted any content because I left the country at the end of January to begin studying abroad in Florence, Italy. While this is true, I have had time (and interest) in posting, but haven't been able to because my Mac broke my second night in Florence. However, after two weeks on the shelf, I am now back in business. I'll discuss more in future posts, but this post is actually for my "Creating the Multimedia Sports Narrative" course. Our first assignment for the class was to create a sports blog, and I was allowed to use this space for my work. So, as far as my regular content goes, prepare for occasional catch up posts to come.

Enjoying the view from the other side of the pond.

The first assignment was to basically outline why I got started in my Sports Communication major. I have an "About Me" page linked above with some information. I've been a major sports fan since I was around 8 years old, and my favorite sport has always been baseball. Hearing people say the reason they are sports majors is because "they like sports" has always been a huge pet peeve of mine. I've followed statistics religiously, collected all sorts of cards and memorabilia, and have written about baseball since I was 12! I've interned with a minor league baseball team, the Hudson Valley Renegades, and I plan on doing more in the future.

It's a very broad major, and I'd like to say I'm multitalented. I'm not sure where I want to end up down the road, but I've learned that I would not be happy if I couldn't do something I love. I decided to study abroad in part to obtain the International Sports certificate to place on my growing resume, but also to find myself and discover what it is I truly want to do with my life. I'm hoping by taking these courses and exploring Europe I will reach those goals.
