The Zak Zone

July 18, 2011

A few months ago, someone asked me what my dream job would be. I told them that being a sports reporter would be the ideal position for me.

My passion for sports, writing and photography could all be blended together somehow to make the perfect position to fit my talents.

Unfortunately, I didn't realize this truth before I pursued my advanced education, and when I went to college, I studied mathematics and earned a master's in religious studies afterward.
