Oh Brooklyn, still on my mind everyday. Now more than ever, probably because my graduation awaits me in the spring and I can’t stop thinking of what to do, where to go, how to go and, oh,  how the heck am I going to afford this? I guess these are those “real world” anxieties that so many speak of after your school days are complete. So I have ...

From ATL to ‘New Yawk’

Your netWORK is your net WORTH.

I say it all the time: “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” Networking is crucial in the city, and GSU is known for it. I have figured this out as I people-watch on my daily routine to work and class. Here at State we have students who are dancers, musicians, producers, designers, artists, accountants, athletes ...

It’s Not What You Know

In Atlanta, it’s all about who you know. Literally. You can say you go to GSU, say you’re a fashion stylist or that you are an “up-and-coming” rapper. -___- But, who do you know? What have you done? What makes you the “go-to” guy? The answer, people, is EXPERIENCE.

“But Johnny, how can I get experience when I’m in school full time and work at Rec Center ...

On Feb. 6, hundreds of students signed up and were provided with free Panasonic HD camcorders, Apple Computer laptops equipped with iMovie and Final Cut Pro, and training ...

What does your coffee order really mean?

By: Johnny Self

 

When I walk into Starbucks on Peachtree Street, I don’t exactly say “Can I get a Venti Mocha, no stress, with an extra shot of motivation please?” Usually, I just want a quick fix to keep my energy running. Let’s face it, as college students, we all get stressed easily and attempt to avoid any additional tasks ...

Leaves Changing, Scarves Hanging

I know what you are thinking: Fall is here and you need to buy a huge coat and gloves that will last the whole season. WRONG. Since I’ve attended Georgia State, I have seen various interpretations of what I like to call “Jumbo Jacket Syndrome.” People buy these huge jackets that completely swallow them just to stay warm while they are outside — not to mention that it’s about ...

Flat. That’s the first word I think of when I think of my hometown. I would have said small, but everyone is from a “small town” nowadays. Adairsville is the name of the one-stoplight town where I lived prior to my transfer to Georgia State. I was always into the arts and longed to find some inspiration in that town. Mind you, the folks back home didn’t exactly look ...
