Find Your Passion - 06/11/14

  The class of 2014 just graduated.  Many are headed to college to prepare for a career.  I remember being that age and trying to figure out what I wanted to do so I didn't waste my time or money in college training for a field I may never even work in.
  I was lucky in that I was already working in small market radio in high school and had discovered journalism and believed that would be a great way to combine two things I liked to do, broadcasting and writing.  That was my passion.  It was how I paid my way through college.  I still love what I do and feel blessed to work in broadcasting. 
  A few decades down the road, what I'm hoping for my own daughter who's headed to college is that she feels like she has the room to explore her interests.  She has a major and thinks she knows what she wants to do.  That's great, but I've already told her if you get in there and discover "I hate this," it's okay.  We'll regroup, set a new course and start moving in that direction.
  It's difficult to fathom what you're going to do for the rest of your life at the ripe old age of 18.  There's so many potential careers you've never even considered.  My advice, use your time in college to learn as much as you can about as many things as you can.  Find something that excites you, something you can't wait to learn more about.  Then figure out how you can make a living doing that.  Finding your passion will result in a satisfying career no matter what the financial rewards are.  There's an old saying, I believe is true, if you work at something you love, you never work a day in your life.

GOP 2016-PAUL-MARIJUANA

He met with donors at the Cannabis Business Summit in Denver. Tickets for the fundraiser started at $2,700. In public remarks after the event, Paul didn't mention marijuana and didn't take questions from most reporters.

NBA JERSEYS

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- It's LeBron James versus Stephen Curry, again. And Curry is the winner, again. Curry's jersey is the top seller for the first time. The Golden State Warriors star and league MVP is the best-seller, according to the NBAStore.com. James held the top spot at the end of the regular season, but drops to second. The latest figures cap Curry's incredible year. He led the Warriors to a franchise-record 67 wins -- plus 16 more in the playoffs -- and their first championship in 40 years. His Warriors beat James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in six games for the NBA crown.

SNAKE-MUSEUM TOILET

ARCHER CITY, Texas (AP) -- There was an unwelcome visitor at a North Texas museum -- a nearly 6-foot-long snake. Mary Ann Levy was opening the museum when she spotted the rat snake curled up in a toilet. Sheriff's Deputy Tina Robertson was supervising an inmate crew mowing at the nearby courthouse. A trusty happened to know about snakes and he helped capture the creature. Levy can laugh about it now. She tells the Wichita Falls Times Record News at least the snake now doesn't have a pot to "hiss in."
