Justice for Julian Website Now Open

16 Aug

The Justice for Julian website is now open. If you don’t remember, Julian Collender was a 25-year-old man who was shot to death by Brea Police officers in June after a police report led to his home. Unfortunately, I couldn’t make it to the tribute concert on Saturday night as I only found about it yesterday. Hopefully, the website will have more updates on the investigation and/or any tributes.

Keep it here on The Ed Column or the Justice for Julian website for more info on the Julian Collender shooting.

Community College

16 Aug

Today, I have set the odometer back a bit in my life. I’m back in community college*. Why? As I try to look for a permanent full-time job, I think it’s important that I improve on the skills that I need to go a step further. For instance, newspapers, especially local ones, are looking for people with good photographic skills. Even though I post club photos on a regular basis, I need to have the legitimacy as a photographer. So I’m trying to get added into a digital photography class considering I need the time for a part-time job to fund this venture.

As I stepped foot on the campus for the first time in three years, I noticed some significant changes. First of all, I was turned away from the parking structure for the first time ever because it was filled up. Filled up. Nice. Luckily I found parking in the back, so I can’t really complain, but tomorrow’s another day.

I quote Tupac: “Some things will never change.”

*Unless I fail to enroll in the classes I’m petitioning.
