The Only Constant

5/11/22

Let me begin this post by addressing the elephant in the room: Yes, I know it’s been a long time since I’ve written on this site, and yes that last post was made almost a year ago. I’ve been experiencing… a lot to say the least. I acquired a job with student media on the Georgia State campus running concerts and that has been nothing but a blast. However, a time-consuming blast it is also.

Recently, I and other student media employees received some eerie news regarding affairs that are going on behind the scenes. The result is potential revisions in pre-established positions, such as a cut back on the amount of time the position is served and cuts to the capacity in which some of these jobs operate. There’s only one emotion that was expressed after reading this news: fear. I expressed fear of losing this job that I cherish so much. I expressed fear of losing this creative outlet and the opportunities that come with it.

The only explanation I could provide myself with as to why these modifications are being put in place is change. I was scared of the changes that are being made to the student media organizations. I’m slowly working my way to overcoming this fear and accepting what’s coming to me. I remind myself that change is a good thing. Change allows for a fresh start and allows for the refinement of the attributes that make us the people that we are. The only way to travel from here is up, no going back.

From this moment on, I will embrace these changes with a positive mindset. Listen, or read in this case, when I tell you all that if we don’t start embracing change now, the future will not be so kind to any of us.

Hello all. My name is Henry Hyman; I am an incoming second-year student at Georgia State Univeristy. I work in engagement for Hillel at GSU: a student-run Jewish organization that provides an open space for all students willing to come and learn about the Jewish faith and culture. I also serve as a member of GSU's student-run radio station, Album 88.5. I get behind the mic once a week and have the chance to spread my voice to Atlanta and Georgia State. I'm taking over as coordinator for our sessions program where we host local artists and get the full scoop of what the Atlatna music scene has to offer. Besides my professional life, I love to kick back with friends and listen to music. I played basketball in high school and love the sport as a hobby. I'm a huge Nintendo activist, playing games such as Pokemon, Mario Kart, and Smash Bros. I play kendama, (yes, the ball on the stick) and love to write (if you couldn't tell). I hope you all get a chance to share my journey through higher education as I recount my daily experiences and provide some insight on how to live life as a college student. Also, be sure to stay in touch with me on social media!
