It’s been way too long since I’ve updated my own website with anything new. I made it a goal to start blogging every Sunday and that was something that faded quickly. Since my change in location I’ve started school and have been actively involved in my studies as well as two school organizations. One of which is the Asian Pacific American Coalition, which focuses on political and social issues that young Asian-Americans face or will face in their everyday lives. The other organization is the Elements of Hip Hop Student Organization. Both of which have been great decisions for me because I have learned a lot and have much to take from them. I’ve been told that they might be a waste of my time which could be used to achieve much better results. Sure.
More and more I’m beginning to see exactly how subjective these things really are. Or rather, how relative the decisions we make really are. Next semester I’ll be even more active and will likely be in charge of the direction of the Hiphop organization. I feel I’ll be taking a very different approach towards it than most people would expect. My goal is to treat it as if I were running my own agency. Too serious? Maybe to some, but not to me. Sure, it’s college and it’s not a real “legal” organization but that does not mean the interactions aren’t real.
The business world, if you wish to call it that, especially with the internet world in mind has been forced to abide by the consumer’s standards. Think about the vast amounts of businesses that are now on Facebook, once a social network for college students exclusively. I might be in college but I’ve been treating it entirely as if I were conducting research. Learning how to work with specific types of people, learning how to organize events, learning how to educate, inspire, and empower are all part of the experiences I will be bringing with me once I leave college.
I used to tell myself I really wished I just went through with college and finished it as soon as I left high school but thinking about it now, I’m back to holding no regrets. That is, I’ve learned the true value an education holds for me and just can’t let it go to waste. No matter what age you are, there’s something to be learned from everything. Just ask this guy.
By the way, look out for a redesign. I think it’s time for that.
