Do a 180

In 2002, I was behind the video switcher at a local NBC news affiliate. The Winter Olympics were on, and I had to monitor for live updates over the NBC broadcast feed to switch from national coverage to local commercials. A big red button did it all, but had to be with precision to the second.

One competition was the snowboard half-pipe. An athlete would begin down the course to do tricks and exercises. A 180°. A 360°. A 720°. A 1080°. They would finish and get a score. The top three took their place on medal podium.

I have to do a 180. For my second degree, I need to do 180 hours of field experience. This is just starting.
