“Back to school to prove to Dad I’m not a fool…”  Thank you, Billy Madison.

I can’t believe it’s already the end of July.  August is just around the corner and that means so is the first day of the new school year!  The school supply lists are out and there are plenty of advertisements for back to school clothing sales around the area

Watch The Official “Fifty Shades Of Grey” Trailer: Not Safe For Young Eyes

I'm not a reader. I'm not gonna lie to you and say that I am, I'm just not. While admitting that, do you know how long it took me to read the Fifty Shades Of Grey trilogy? Ten days. Yes, three books in ten days. There's no shame in my I-just-couldn't-stop-reading-about-the-many-red-hot-layers of Christian Grey game. (See what I did there?!?)

So, you can imagine my anticipation for the movie. Even thou the movie won't be here until Valentine's Day 2015, the official trailer has been released. (I've already watched it 5 times, haha!)

DISCLAIMER: THIS VIDEO IS NOT FOR ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 18 OR WHO EMBARRASSES EASILY. YES, ADULTS ONLY PEOPLE! OH... ENJOY ;)

Studies Show – “Um” is Good

I've been working in radio for around seven years now, and I can only image how many times I have said "Um" or "Uh" on the air.  In college they told us to stay away from saying these little filler words, but it turns out there was a study we all paid for from The University of Texas
