They never let me anywhere near the studios but I'm sure I'd have the best "one hour - all request hour" if they did!
Hi! I'm Mike The Web Guy. My boss told me that I should start one of these blogs, even though I'm not "on the radio." After being told that it was a "good idea," I figured, "why not?" I could always use another thing to do. Things about me... I'm a HUGE San Diego Chargers Fan (Any SoCal Locals who want to get together for a game - COMMENT back at me and let's HOOK IT UP). I live in Clifton Park. I'm all about APPLE (sorry PC people). I have a woman who lives upstairs in my house who is related to me by marriage. We have two kids who pretty much run our social life.
High School. Those were the days. Knowing what you know now, would you want to go back?
That question comes to mind every time some "coming of age" movie hits theaters. Like this weekend's new release "21 & Over." I'm pretty sure you would agree that there were three types of people in high school: 1) The group that LIVED it up in high school because that time was truly going to be the best time in their life (not that there's anything wrong with it). Everybody needs a Jeff Spicoli, not everyone can BE Spicoli. 2) The kids who were focused on getting in, getting out, and graduating. I think that group pretty much covers most of us. We filled out our schedules, played some sports, marched in the band, went to dances, had relationships, breakups, and after four long years - graduated. 3) The kids who spent everyday wishing the whole mess was over. I kinda felt like that my Junior year. I remember sitting in Algebra class wondering, "when am I EVER going to need to know this stuff in the real world?"
Of course some of our memories of high school are attached to those experiences that would forever shape our social life. BuzzFeed has put together a cool list of the "21 Awkward Situations We All Survived In High School."
I am so glad I never have to bring a report card home anymore!
