Happy Summer 2014

Hello there fellow bloggers and whoever else may be reading this!!

I hope that all of you are having a fantastic summer.  For those of you who summer is coming to a close calendar wise, I hope that you are looking forward to heading back to school, or whatever else may be coming your way.  

It’s funny that I must say calendar wise.  Even though some people consider August the beginning of Autumn, it most definitely isn’t.  It is still VERY HOT here in Florida and in other parts of the world who are experiencing summer right now.  So it is still summer!  

However it is back to school time.
It is so bizarre to me still how school starts so early in August.  I remember when I was just starting school we didn’t begin until September, and we were done around the first week of May.  Now people go to school from the beginning of August all the way to the end of May, sometimes even the beginning of June!  It is crazy to me.

I began the first leg of a semester of online classes today.  I am taking two classes.  One is an Intro to Spanish class, and the other is an Intro to Public Relations.  Both of which I am super excited to be apart of.  

Living in Orlando surrounds me with a lot of Spanish speaking individuals.  Sometimes it is so frustrating when I want to be able to communicate with someone who can’t speak English very well, but am unable to because I don’t speak the language fluently.  I know a lot about Spanish and some things I can say, but it has been awhile since I took a full on course about it, so I am looking forward to it.

Public Relations has been something that I have always been interested in.  Being a journalism student, and loving people makes it a great classes to gain some more knowledge in the subject.  So I am very much looking forward to what I will take away from this class as well??

Since this became a post more about school I would love to hear your thoughts on this.

Do we go to school too much?  Should school years be shorter or longer?  Do we live in a day, time, and culture where it is better to get more schooling?

I would love to hear your thoughts.

Also be on the lookout for more coming from MIX IT UP very soon!!  Things have been a little wild for me and Alexis so time has not allowed us a chance to do a show in awhile, but we will be back soon!!

In the meantime follow me @calebgraham on Twitter and @mixituptv to keep up with us!!

See you soon!!

An Update from Oz

IMG_7274_2I made a post the other day commenting on the fact that I was coming back from my summer hiatus.  I know that I never really officially said I was going on a hiatus, but I decided to do so after I got behind and away from the blog.

Since my last post, a lot had gone down in my life.  I turned 21.  I had to go to court in Jackson, Mississippi and pay $650 to take care of a fishing license ticket.  While I was there I met a girl from Uruguay that worked at Chik-Fil-A.  That was kinda cool.  My roomate decided to call me two days befre school started and tell me he wasn’t coming back.  As a result I lost the apartment and had to move back on campus.  I lost my work study job at school and didn’t get a job anywhere that I applied.  Then I changed my major from Music Business back to Musical Theatre when I am now a Senior.  I lost my best friend because he is an idiot.  My other best friend decided that she was moving to Orlando.  I had an ear infection, got food poisoning.  My grandmother, Nanny passed away a week ago, and then I ended up having to quit school for the semester because my parents are broke and we couldn’t pay for the rest of the semester.

Can you spell D-R-A-M-A????

So I have been in much need of a break from EVERYTHING.  With so much stuff going on I didn’t really have time to keep up with things in the blog world.  It’s sad, b/c I wasn’t able to get the following that I wanted to try to get, but maybe that I am home now and have some more time, I will be able to get caught up and gain some followers.

As far as my surgery goes, I am doing VERY well.  I just got rubberbands and in November I have been promised that I will get my braces off before I take my first trip to New York City!!!!  I am super excited and it’s going to be so much fun!!!!

Now that I am back I hope to get some “Today In Oz” vids up here and there.  I am hoping to get the second season of Take A Bow that never happened going soon.  I’m also gonna post a video of a monologue that I learned in my acting class earlier this semester while I was still at school.  Maybe I can get some feedback from you guys to see if I have what it takes to make it as an actor.  Also all of the “…Of the Week” posts will be up and going again, and I will keep posting news/entertainment stories that I find interesting here and there!!

Just had a brain fart.  Maybe instead of trying to get two or three topics into “Today In Oz” I should pick like one topic to talk about for a few minutes, so that I can get more in instead of just reading the topic and talking about it for like 2 seconds and moving on.  hmmm we will see about that. haha

Anyways, that’s a little bit of an update on what’s been going on with me over the past two months.  I hope to get back into the swing of things here.

Lemme hear from you!!!!
