About the Author:
I am a mass-communication-public relations major at Texas State University. I originally (when I was age 5) wanted to be a video rewind person at a video store like Blockbuster. My inspiration for wanting such a career came from the movie Superstar (1999). The movie starred Saturday Night Live alum Molly Shannon who worked as a video rewind person on the weekends when she didn’t attend catholic school. When I saw that Blockbuster was closing a bunch of its stores (and eventually all stores) my dreams were crushed and I had to pick a new career. Mass Communications and the study of media it was.
