My Future

The future is something that is in the back of most college student’s life and everyone in general. As for me, by the next decade I hope on having a successful job and hopefully have a family of my own. Since I was a little kid I have always seen myself maybe marrying young and having my first child as early as maybe 25 to 26 years old. I’m actually so serious about this that I already have a name for my first born child (hopefully a boy). The name will be John-Michael Alexander Basilio. The name comes half from the bible and half from me. John as in the Disciple, my Confirmation saint was Michael the Arch-Angle, followed by my first name as his middle name, and of course my last name. In addition to that I hope to be working in the international business industry maybe specializing in the hospitality industry. I love to travel and so why not do something you love to do. My plans sounds simple and if achieve them, I will consider myself the happiest man alive.

Technology Tip

Something that I recently learned how to do was how to take a picture of the computer screen, and everything that’s on it, without a camera. On my HP laptop the way to do it is simple and very helpful when doing things such as online picture and editing them on the spot. First, hold down the CTRL+ALT+INS keys simultaneously. Once that is done open Paint or software of the same sort. Once the page is open, hold down CTRL+V and that should paste the screen shot on page.

Beach!! These two words are like the sound of music to the ears of millions of college students around country. That’s is the time where students can take a breather and just relax in the comfort of their home and get their mind off the craziness of their college life, including their work load, their social lives, and even their relationships. One reason I believe that colleges do this is because not every student lives around the corner and it gives out of state students and international student an opportunity to leave everything behind and just enjoy the comfort of their home, where ever that is. This spring break was very exciting. Even though I didn’t do the usual Cancun trip or Panama City, my home town is Miami so south beach was just around the corner. My entire wee was jammed packed with family, friends, beach, and more beach, and more family. It was very nice to see my family and friends for more than just a weekend, but the most important thing was that we were all safe. Studies show that 1.5 million kids go away for spring break spending over a billion dollars and average about 10 drinks per day. And although that sounds very pricey and outrageous more than 1,700 student die, 599,000 injured and 97,000 cases of sexual assault or date rape reported each year. My spring break was fun but safeJ.

this picture represents me because this is me and some of closest friends (especially girl all the too the right she’s my roommate/sister/best friend for life).  I love going to the beach with my friends and taking crazy dance pictures, and love seeing people react to this group of girls contorting their bodies and such on the beach :).  Actually correction i just love going places with my best friends, we always manage to have the time of our lives and never stop laughing! The only thing missing from this picture is my other best friend shelbie from UCF, and my boyfriend Lorrin in orlando as well <3

Hey I took this picture at the beach on Saturday!!

This is the best picture that describes me.. This picture was taken after graduation and the reason I think this picture describes me is because I feel like I am a family man. To me family come first in front of everyone and everything. Standing here next to my mom and my dad after one of the greatest accomplishments I&#8217;ve made so far truly makes me happy and puts a smile on my face! Family is my biggest thing that&#8217;s why I love this picture!!

Chill song…

What’s a viral video? Basically a viral video is a video that gets watched by a large number of people and then watch by more and more people and then just spreads like wild fire. For this post I wanted to bring everyone back to the video of Bonquiqui. This is a video that like all the other videos started with just a couple of views and its now at almost at 43 million views. This viral was so big; it even appeared on a TV show episode on Comedy Central. Something that makes a viral video is the context in the video. Personally who doesn’t like a video that has that special catch phrase? For example, the video sitting on the toilet, it’s a large girl that sings while she is sitting on a toilet but you’re gonna remember the song sitting on the toilet. In Bonquiqui, hey catch phrase was “I will CUT you.” In addition to the catch phrase she has a catchy song too. I think that’s what made the video so viral, the song. Please I seriously think that everyone that has a computer has maybe heard the song. “On the mic is the queen… you can have it your way.” That’s the song that 42,853,602 have heard.

When it comes to the topic of viral videos giving people their 15 minutes of fame, it really up to the people that make the video. In the video Lincoln Park Rapist Song, the man in that video is not a celebrity; he actually gets paid to make appearances and has almost 72 million hits on YouTube. And let’s not forget the “Beiber Fever”; Justin Beiber was also a YouTube sensation. Viral videos are bound to happen but the celebrities come from those that are discovered.
