Journal 9 from Dallas

Part One:
My favorite profile in Callings must be Sanitation Worker with Angelo Bruno and Eddie Nieves. I was just fascinated with Angelo as a person and how genuinely kind he was to everyone. His outlook on his job is what resonates with me the most and I love his quote “I didn’t look at it as going down the block to pick up garbage. I was going down the block to see my friends (Isay 127).” Angelo is the type of person we all should strive to be.
Part Two:
            I have looked over many careers, trying to find what seems to be the best fit for me. My current major is mechanical engineering and that’s mainly because I love problem solving and a love/hate relationship with putting things together. Before I chose mechanical engineering, I strongly considered getting a degree to be a history teacher. Mainly, because I have a growing will to learn everything about everything and would love to pass knowledge down to my students. If I could be risk taker and not jeopardize my family I would look for a career in sports. Not playing a sport but a front office job or scouting type of job. I have a huge passion for sports and would love to work for an organization. Having a family unfortunately makes you think of your choices before you make them. My wife likes to joke around with me when I’m talking dream jobs. She always says “Dallas, I really don’t care what you do, but I better have a huge house, at least 5 dogs and a few chickens."
It would be a dream to work within the NFL. I am a big fan of the game. 
During the season I will be watching multiple games at once.
The offseason I keep track of  scouting reports, individual players draft stocks, free angency and more.


  1. I too, am a big fan of the NFL. One of my biggest dreams in junior high was to become an NFL superstar.

  2. Professional fantasy football player? That is what I hear talent scouts called anymore. You would be in such a good job to abuse gambling, too. TWO big houses and TEN dogs!

  3. Back in high school all I wanted to do was play football or get into power lifting but life always likes to throw a curve-ball at us.
