Hello everyone my name is Owen Hawk I’m from Bethlehem, PA and I go to the greatest school in the U.S. I love everything about this place, i guess thats why they call it Happy Vally. Im in the PGM program and let me explain that since I have to every time I tell someone. PGM stands for Professional Golf Management and before you ask, Yes it is actually a major. I got my first real taste of science in middle school, and I enjoyed it because I had a great teacher. He talked about the things I wanted to learn about like space and aliens. Then I hit High School and science was absolutely ruined for me. Nothing but keeping your head in the book and memorizing formulas, and don’t even get me started on the teachers. My spark with science was relit when I was told about Andrew’s science class. It was described as the look in science that I actually enjoy. I instantly signed up for the class. I knew it was a great way to knock and credits and avoid a science class that was all about keeping your face in a book.
The reason I am not a science major is for the love I have with the game of Golf. I wanted a career where I could wake up everyday and go to work at a golf course. They say, “If you love what you do you never work a day in your life.” I love this quote, this is what I want to be able to say one day. With the PGM program that is where I’m heading without a doubt.
Although we have only had a few classes I can tell I made the correct decision joining Andrew’s science class. I mean we got to chose the topics we get to talk about! You show me another class offered here at Penn State that you can do this at. Im so excited to learn and talk about all the interesting topics we gave to Andrew. I’m definitely looking forward to talking about anything in space. That is my favorite topic in all of science. I sometimes catch myself just getting lost while staring into the stars and wondering what could be out there. One of my friends back home had a telescope and I could spend hours on hours just looking at stars and if I was lucky a plant. One of my favorite movies of all time is Interstellar. If you haven’t seen it yet first off, what are you doing with your life? Second, go watch it right now. This movie will absolutely get your mind thinking. After you watch it the first time, the secret is to watch it a second time to pick up on the things you missed and trust me there is stuff you will miss.
Here is a link to purchase Interstellar its a must watch.
