My job last week was to put each one of these itty bitty cards, buttons, magnets and oh so much more into sets of 5 and 25 until I totaled 150 sets. Whew. What a task. Although mindless, very tedious work. Just to catch you up, Rage Against The Haze is a youth powered organization that focuses on keeping teens tobacco-free the same way the diseases spread; through word of mouth.

As quickly as I fell in love with One Minute News, was as quickly as we had to part our separate ways. I got laid off today along with all a large chunk of the crew I grew accustomed to laughing and learning with everyday. The funny thing is; I honestly thought if this were to ever happen, it would be because I broke a camera or something dramatic and over the top, but unfortunately this had to...
I just love going to the movies, munching on some buttery popcorn, or my all time favorite movie snack, Twizzlers and having some mindless thought. However it really revs my engine when I go with someone and they find it necessary to talk and ask questions the whole time. Or worse, text non stop. It makes that awful clicking noise and lights up and is just down right distracting. I take my movie...
I have mixed feelings about the way this guy from Scotland educated people about this issue in Syria. I’m all about spreading the word for human rights. My passion for this comes from Love146. I try and spread the word about this amazing organization striving to help abolish human trafficking every chance I get. I think that this guy would have got just as much attention if he had been...

The weekend atmosphere.
Normally I get into work around 9am during the weekdays and see Michael and Yasmin. They look my way as I pass, flash me a grin and a “Morning Logan” and on they go with their business. By then they have been there for hours along with eight other OMN crew members so things are always buzzing and people are everywhere. I worked my first weekend shift this past Saturday and the...
You are cordially invited to celebrate the end of our marriage! Eat, drink and be marry as we put on our best fake smiles for one last time as a not-so-happy couple! Okay, now this story is bizarre. Check it out.

Plain and simple the people at One Minute News are just a bunch of big kids. Maybe five minutes after I walk in and situate myself to get ready for a successful day of blogging I hear from across the room, “35 days till’ Harry Potter!” in a overly excited tone from who we call the “den mother.” At least that’s what it says on her business cards, outsiders might...

I did my first paid editing job last week! My best friends mom, Mrs. Ray asked me to create a video about passion. She is speaking to a group of 2,000 people about how you need to be passionate in order to be leaders in the church community. It was really difficult to do what my client wanted and still make it visually appealing and powerful. I was talking to Josh, an editor at One Minute News the...

Today I did something I’ve never done before. I built something! James aka “Papa Tech” let me help assemble a…locker thingy ma-jig? Okay, truth is I’m not really sure what it is but it holds a computer and there were a lot of little screws involved. When I jumped at the opportunity to help him he looked a little confused as to why I had any interest in learning how to...
