In your opinion of today’s technology, what is the best invention that has made an improvement for yourself or the world? Is their anything in the future that you would like to see created?
During high school I took a program at Forbes Road CTC for computer networking and engineering (CNET). This program went from changing your screen saver to wiring.
While attending Forbes, we had a project which required us to take a trip to Seagate Research Center in the Strip District and present a PowerPoint. We were proposing new applications for wireless and network attached hard drives in everyday life. While we worked on these projects for a month or so you could see how much more people understood the new application.

I recently started getting involved with races last year in 2009 and have been inspired to continue this healthy trend by signing up once a year for a race. It’s important to get involved around your community and also to get some exercise.
The Great Race- Richard S. Caliguiri
The 5K we signed up for last year, was Richard S. Caliguiri for the 2009 Great Race. My boyfriend absolutely hates waking up early, so when I tried to wake him up at around 5 a.m. I received an earful.
Since we don’t exercise on a regular basis we kind of fell behind in the race, and as we neared the end he said he wanted a running finish to pass everyone up. I noticed a lot of people had mp3 players while they were running, which is a good idea to enjoy the run. The sponsors were very kind, we received a long sleeve shirt, which we wore, chocolate energy drinks one before and one for after the race, hair ties, and a fruit cup. After the race they had food and drinks for us from many sponsors.
We then decided as much as we liked the race we would sign up for another next year.
What are you involved in?
Three words, The Pittsburgh Pirates. I love going to their games and getting score updates on my phone. I’ve been to about four games this year and hope to go to more next year.
What is your favorite thing to do? You should take a few hours or a day to remind yourself why life is so precious. What do I love? I love putting on my favorite hat and standing in the crowd cheering for the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Why you may ask? Because I love the everything about it like the food, stadium, sport, and just getting out for the night.
Everyone loves free things!
In April, when I went to a game with my boyfriend Chris, we had awesome seats and a very memorable day. It happened to be really cold that day which is why I’m wearing a jacket in the picture. Before the game started, we walked past this free game called Spin-A-Wheel. All you had to do was show the workers your ID card and spin the wheel to win a prize. I ended up getting an Eco friendly Pirate’s tote bag, and Chris won a Pirate’s T-shirt.
I always try to get close seats between home plate and third base. Although, the Pirates probably aren’t your favorite team like they are mine, those seats are surely taken fast. Well that night, we had awesome seats which may be why Chris caught two foul baseballs from Andrew McCutchen without a glove! A few people sitting near us weren’t very happy and called us greedy. This is my favorite memory, we had so much fun that night and he even gave me both baseballs. That’s the first and only game we ever caught a baseball at. We are still looking to get them signed.
After the amazing fireworks for the Pirate’s win we left in my car with my Pirate floor mats, license plate frame, and clear stickers on my windows that still makes me think of that day when I look at it.
You can find any of those types of promo products at rushIMPRINT. Having the products we won still has us thinking about this night. Now I buy all of my fan gear from them.
Well as much as I don’t like many other sports, like he loves hockey, I guess I’ll have to repay him by going to a game.
Almost everyone has taken a vacation. Whether it’s a short or a long one, it helps to plan ahead. Knowing where you’re going and what you’ll be doing will be the reasoning for what you pack.
Like me, if you always feel like you’re forgetting to pack something, you can start off with writing everything in a pocket planner or a journal. I would start by writing down the most important items that you can first think of, then write anything else that comes to mind. Always double check the items on the list against the items you are packing.
Step #2 Pack to your own needs
If you usually carry a wallet, it would probably be best not to pack that into the travel bag so you have all of your most important information with you. While you’re on vacation you may need something a bit smaller to carry around with you and keep your personal items together. How about a tote bag, they are big enough to fit many things into but small enough to not get in the way. Don’t forget to take your sunscreen! I hate going on vacations and turning red.
