Meanwhile...

While I'm achieving my dreams and crossing things off my 25 before 25 list, Sal's also been accomplishing goals of his this year! He started school last year at the Connecticut School of Broadcasting, after a long discussion between the two of us. If he couldn't be out on the field playing football, he wanted to be as close as possible to the sport, and thus decided on broadcasting. There he learned he had a passion for much more than sports, he learned to use programs like Final Cut Pro, and was able to intern on the set of a movie. It seemed like the 17 week program went incredibly fast, and it was over before I knew it. It wasn't just the night classes that had Sal at school, it was the assignments and his determination to learn all he could while he was there. He networked at school, as well as during his internship. I was so proud that he had finally found his passion in life, so when he announced his graduation, I left work early and was prepared to be there for him during this next step in his life.


Graduation was at the school, and while we waited for it to start, they showed pictures and played sound clips from all of their classes and assignments. Though I had already seen most of Sal's work because he had to show me once he finished something, too proud to keep it to himself, it was fun to see the pictures of the class in action. During graduation, they have out awards to the class, and Sal ended up receiving the most! I clapped so loudly for him each time, even though I could have guessed which awards he was going to win! I was a proud girlfriend that day. We went out with his parents afterwards, clinking glasses and listening to Sal talk about his experience.


Since graduation Sal has scored a position as a writer for Football Nation and recently started a sports radio show on his school's radio station - The Sport's Firm. He just graduated and has already had all of these opportunities because he's a great networker and he is persistent! He will not give up or settle for anything less than he deserves, and that's why I love him. I cannot wait to see what's next for him!
