Blame the parents?

Marion County School Bus Beating 1.6.12

I interviewed an interesting woman tonight in Ocala.

I was following up on the school bus beating story- the Marion County School Board decided to expel the seven students involved, for one year.

They're accused of beating a 14-year-old girl unconscious on January 6.

The video is pretty disturbing.

I caught Pam Ayers, an Ocala grandmother, before she walked into the school board meeting tonight.

"It's always the parents, the parents should be raising the children...we need to have the parents start parenting again," she said.

Watch what else she had to say here.

My Rhino Story...

After 20 hours in my edit cave, and a solid two months of research, interviews, and trips to the country, I finished my investigative piece on the Yamaha Rhino.

My Station's "Awkward Kicker"

My producer Carl Dotson, is responsible for the glorious "Awkward Kicker" on our show tonight.

I'm so grateful for these guys!!

Hopefully my news director is cool with me acting like a hyena behind the set...


Hey Ma, I'm on GMA!

The morning news anchor at my station woke me up at 7AM, saying Good Morning America was on the phone.

This is cray cray!

Mama G was on her drive to work so she missed my GMA appearance, but Cosmo, (my dad) caught the broadcast.

I know my showbiz grandma, Gilda Rizzuto, aka "GiGi Mayo," a comedian and amazing performer, is smiling in heaven. <3

So I'm sitting in my edit cave at work, trying to put together my sweeps piece, when my producer informs me of AWKWARD KRISTIN BEING POSTED ON REDDIT!

MY CAREER IS OVER!!!! CREDIBILITY OUT THE WINDOW!!!! LOL Well, I hope not... I promise I've learned a lot since college: I've gotten really good at ducking behind printers, and I work well with deer.

Check out my first blog post about "Awkward Kristin" here.

Fluffernutter Friday

It's Friday.
Well I got out of work technically on Saturday a little after midnight, and decided to stop at the grocery store to pick up a few things, (all I have in my fridge is a Brita and a block of gouda cheese).

I just made myself a fluffernutter wheat wrap, (peanut butter and Fluff).
It was delicious.
I've been trolling my YouTube channel, specifically the latest two videos I posted, Girls' Racist Rant Goes Viral, and Racist Teens Ousted.

I'm in genuine disbelief at the comments people have been posting.
Do these people not get tired of HATING each other?

Hate is like metal chains cinching your heart.
You can't truly experience the joys of life when you're holding onto the wrongdoings of others.

You think the arguments you make hiding behind your computer justify your hate?
It takes STRENGTH to love those who are hardest to love.

Peace comes when you learn to accept what you can't change, and let go of the past.
Some things aren't up to us to fix.
All we can do is be a light in the sphere of influence that surrounds us.

The comments posted under my YouTube videos have reminded me of the dark world we're living in.
However, I'm encouraged.
My heart is free from the chains that bind others.
Hate is not crippling me, or holding me back from chasing my dreams.
The sky's the limit.
