From Australia to UAT: A Koala-ty Story

It was a hot Australian summer’s day as I stood next to a large production camera that was pointed at a concerned police officer. I placed my face up to the eyepiece and made sure that the focus and exposure of the shot was still correct. The journalist next to me was asking a slew of questions about a possible arson when all of a sudden a vibration in my pocket broke my concentration. I stepped back and pulled out the phone. It buzzed in my hand and the small screen displayed an international number “Unknown.” Having been at the job for almost two years, I was confident that I could answer the call without any trouble. I stepped away from the camera and put the phone to my ear. I was soon greeted by a friendly voice that stated they were from the University of Advancing Technology and that congratulations were in order for winning the Digital Video Scholarship.

Essential Skills: Cooking

Posted on Jul 15, 2015 8:40:52 AM by Admin in Blogs, in Dorm Living, in Friends, in college, in cooking

Most of the time, going to college means getting out of your parents house and fending for yourself for the first time.  One of the more traditional ways to do this is to eat copious amounts of ramen in order to get by, but there is a better way!  Learning to make even just a few simple dishes will not only feed you but will generally make you happier person.  On top of that making food yourself is typically cheaper, better for you, as well as simply tasting better.  Want to get started on some simple stuff that you can even just make in a dorm room?  Get yourself a crock pot.  A crock pot, also referred to as a slow cooker, allows you to throw a bunch of ingredients together and come back to it later.  It actually happens so slowly that it's a really forgiving way to cook.  Another bonus?  Usually crock pot recipes produce a whole lot of food.  The excess food can be then stored for later so you don't have to do as much cooking.  Alternatively it be used to make friends or woo lovers.  Man, woman, doesn't matter you know what sentence has never been uttered in the history of ever?
