This “selfie” craze seems as though it’s here to stay. Hot 96.7 has definitely taken advantage of this at events and online. First it was at the Mankato Career expo, where herds of teenagers scrambled to our booth to take snap some shots next to the Selfie wall. This was a success. Now followers are have to opportunity to send in their selfies to Hot 96.7, via Instagram, for the chance be in our video. #Hot967Selfie.
Yes, the song by the Chain Smokers is awful. In fact, I completely despise it. However, I find it hilarious to see what some people go through just to take an insane selfie. For some, I imagine horrific end results, based off of their positioning and body contortion in the photo. I’ve found a couple of photos that I think best qualify as an “insane selfie”.
Pretty sure I wouldn't want to be in any of these scenarios.
Remember, follow @hot967 on instagram and tag your selfie for a chance to be in our video. But please, dont hurt yourself in the process!
If you were to ask me if I enjoy interning at Hot 96.7, my answer would of course be, yes. However, if you were to ask me if my time here has been completely glamorous, I’d say no. Recently, three situations have occurred that were far from sensational. When combined I consider them to be some sort of intern initiation.
Situation 1: Intern Lauran and I arrived and found a large stack of papers on the intern desk with a note that said, “Organize”. So that is what we did. Two hours later the entire office was covered with papers, sticky notes, and manila folders. Usually I enjoy doing this, however feelings of frustration did surface near the end.
Situation 2: Stunt has been working hard at creating intern nametags and t-shirts for events. However, his crazy schedule has kept him from completing them when I started here. Therefore, at some of these events I’ve been addressed as intern, or “you”. Luckily, I’m not too offended by this, mostly because I’ve been promised a shirt as a parting gift when I graduate in May.
Situation 3: This last one seems to top them all. At the Maverick Mini-Mile on Saturday, I worked with Intern Lauran, Stunt and Johnny. This was a very fun event, full of tiny runners, mascots and student athletes. Everything ran smoothly. My concern occurred after the race, as we were about to leave. We all decided to go out to eat and needed to take the Hot Van to get there. Unfortunately, there are only two seats in it. Intern Lauran and I jumped in the back, struggling to stand as Johnny drove. Now, the positive side of this is that they gave us a ride and didn’t make us walk. However, the fact that a cage separated us from them was a little much.
Looking back, I feel as though I have been officially initiated as an intern. Sure, these situations may not seem ideal, but they actually make me laugh when I think about it. Truth is, I love working here and am going to miss it when I leave. Plus, stunt is in the process of hiring more people, so I suppose it’s my turn to pass along the intern torch.
Well it’s April fools day. I accept the fact that I’m extremely gullible, and am an obvious target for pranks. Lets hope this year I dodge the bullet, especially at the office.
I always wonder what the best prank is. So far I’ve seen some pretty creative stuff, mostly from a list published in Time Magazine. There is some pretty crazy stuff on this list, but there are five pranks in particular that I found to be both ridiculous and incredible.
Personally, I would have applied for the position to be a Pokemon Master. The commercial is pretty convincing. But like I said, I’m pretty gullible.
Anyways, I wish the best of luck to all of you on this day. Watch out for those crazy pranksters!
When stunt arrived at the office today he brought to my attention that there is a touch screen computer out there that functions as a window.
The Samsung Smart Window is 46 inches with a resolution of 1366 x 768. This thing works like an iPad but is completely transparent like a window. My mind is blown. Between this, Google Glass and the UPS Drones, I have a feeling that it wont be long before Robots are walking along side us and we all end up like the characters in Walle.
The coolest feature of the Samsung Smart Window is the “blinds” app. What happens when it’s too bright inside? You shut the blinds on a window. This app does just that, and it looks pretty cool. This would be an awesome device to have in the office. I’m sure we wouldn’t have to worry about closing the blinds on it though; stunt has us working with the lights off most of the time.
Unfortunately the Samsung Smart Window is not on the market yet. But when that day comes I will try it out and feel like Tony Stark, when he used a similar device on the Avengers. This will be epic.
Well spring break is over and its time to face reality. There are 53 days left until I graduate from MSU, meaning my days at Hot 96.7 are numbered.
One intern problem, or challenge, is trying to stay optimistic about the weather when planning for events. Rain or snow can destroy any outdoor event, or just make it unbearable for the interns. It’s easy to vent about this frustration. Instead It's probably best to remain optimistic and make the best of it. I have a feeling our snowy days are coming to an end.

Today, Intern Lauran and I investigated the case of the missing mouse. Both intern computers usually come equipped with a mouse, as anyone would assume. Today was a different story.
We began by searching through the office, from desk drawers to cabinet doors. Though tempted to steal stunts mouse, we decided not to give up so easily. This is where things got interesting. The following items were discovered.
You’d think we’d only find standard office supplies, but I guess not. In case you were wondering, there was no trace of the mouse. However, two things were eventually found. Stunt found Lauren and I in the closest searching through boxes. He was very confused at the sight of it.
After explaining the dilemma, stunt was also confused. We all stood in silence without a clue of what to do. All of a sudden, a miracle happened. Johnny walked into the office with the missing mouse in hand! Our bewilderment quickly turned to relief. Finally, we could start our work.
What started as a critical intern problem turned out to be an eye opening office tour. I didn’t realize there were so many hidden objects here. I can’t wait to see what I discover next!
