What is ATM?

16 Sep

And no, I don’t mean the teller machine that spits out money like big ballin’ is your hobby.

Here, at Hampton University, sure we have one of those, but there is also another “ATM” on campus … the Academic Technology Mall; and what exactly is the Academic Technology Mall you ask? Well, that’s why I’m here.

The ATM, located on the 5th floor of the Harvey Library, is many things. There is a full-functioning computer lab, where the computers are equipped with Microsoft Office, scanning, printing and internet.

Also located on the 5th floor, you have technicians & staff to handle problems concerning student & faculty accounts, computer & software issues, Pipeline and blackboard. There are also student workers who work through work-study in the Helpdesk alongside the technicians.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to call the Helpdesk at 757-727-6931.

#nowplaying – Kanye West ft. Pusha T – Runaway   

On this day, 21 years ago, God saw favor in my mother to allow her to give birth to a son. Niko Giovanni Cortez Clemmons, weighing in at 10 lbs. 8 ounces. (ha just kidding).   

I blew up before I grew up.

Cute eh? Yeah I know, what happened right? Lol. Well today, Tuesday, September 14, 2010, I officially became a “man” as America describes this age.  I felt no differently, but let me say that the people I encountered today made me feel like I was on top of the world.   

I have to say THANK YOU to everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday today, whether it was in person, through BBM or text, Twitter & Facebook. I don’t think people realized how much that meant to me. You took time out of your day to recognize that it was my birthday. Every one of you guys ROCK!   

But it doesn’t even stop there. I also want to say thank you to everyone who graciously gave me a gift on today, whether it was a card, candy, etc. I especially want to thank my mother, father, brother & sister, Chimere, Shay, Dasha, LaTonia & the entire SLP Program.  

Finally, I have to thank Lauren Legette. I have no words right now to really express how I feel. She made me feel like I was special tonight. Never have I ever had a “party” or “gathering” of some sort for my birthday. Tonight, that all changed. When you look in the dictionary for the definition of a “surprise party”, what she did for me tonight was that! I was completely surprised & shocked! My face was priceless lol. I wish I had the picture now, but I’ll probably post it tomorrow in a quick post. Lauren, thank you love.  

My friend #realbad.

What have I learned in my 21 years of existence? God is truly an awesome God. Some people never make it to see this age. Without Him, there is no me! My journey isn’t over yet. There’s still so much more for me to do, so that I can make a difference in somebody else’s life. 

So September 14, until we meet again.  






Who would have thought, I'd be caught in this life.

I’m on the right track baby; I was born this way.

     It may come as a surprise that I am now becoming an “official” blogger. For those who follow half of the things I do, you’d think I’d been blogging for years now, with Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Ustream, Scripps Howard Foundation Wire, etc. I’m ALL OVER the internet; I don’t know if that’s a good or a bad thing lol.

     Sure this newly found adventure that I am about to embark on is required for me to pass this Online Journalism class, but knowing me, I think I’m going to take this very seriously. Recently did I find out that people actually “read” what I say, like on Twitter for instance. I want the followers of Neekopolis (my blog name & Skype name ha) to actually take the time to read what I post, & I truly hope you enjoy it.

   Hello world; I am a Senior, Broadcast Journalism major at Hampton University, from Newport News, Virginia. I work very hard at what I do. I love the color orange, I love the Los Angeles Lakers, I love Degrassi & Viva La Bam, I love the Phoenix Mercury, I love Gatorade, I listen to too much Lil Wayne lol, & I love Rock ‘N’ Roll.

     This is just the preview, & I am already working on the sequel. My name isn’t really important.


He's here to save the word, & blog.

Hello world!
