Sound Your Barbaric Blog Yawp


Hello World! By world, I, of course, mean the 2-3 of you who will ever read these words.  I currently have no web presence.  In fact, this is the first website. It was a cool experience.  I am the proud owner of this microscopic plot of electronic real estate.

Now on to the assignment.

Who are you?

I am Ben Schlegel. A 23-year-old UAF bachelor of Arts English graduate currently enrolled in UAF Masters of Education department.

 What do you care about?

I care about my family, friends, and the pursuit of knowledge. 

What do you do professionally? 

I am currently employed as a Camp staff Associate at Camp Bear Valley for the summer. In the Fall I will be Substitute teaching in the Anchorage School District. I have applied and am waiting for my teaching certification,

Do you have hobbies?

I enjoy reading, arts and crafts, video games, and tinkering with electronics.

 If you were to participate in a protest, what would it be about?

I would participate in a net neutrality protest. Even with my lack of online presence, I believe that ISP’s hold too much power and have faux monopolies all over the country.

What would you change about the world, if you could?

I want to change the world’s opinion on reading and learning. The idea of education is met with groans which really bothers me. I believe that the only way to live a healthy and fulfilling life is to participate in the world’s conversation. You need to make an impact in your field. Understand what can be improved and throw your two pennies into that conversation.

What would you change about yourself, if you could?

I would change my work ethic. I would love to become a consistent person. I feel that I either I am on top of a situation or I am being dragged below in an undertow of laziness
