A little bit about me
My name is Kellen Hunter Bramlett. I was born in Decatur, Alabama on March 26, 1993. I am the oldest brother of seven: Ember (16), Kolton (14), Kameron (12), Kristopher (10), J.E.B. (7), and Taylor (3). I grew up in Somerville, Alabama. Along with the rest of my family, I have played sports since the time I could walk. My passion for athletics is what made me decide to pursue a career as a coach/physical ed. teacher. I also enjoy being outside. Inspired by Bear Grylls, my friends and I like to go out and do survival videos. Movie buff does not begin to describe me, which makes Netflix is my addiction. I do not watch much t.v. but I do enjoy watching Spartacus, Justified, The Walking Dead, and Prison Break.
I chose The University of South Alabama mainly because it was so close to the beach. Since I come from a small town I felt the need to get out. Here at South I participate in ROTC, where I hope to be a future Army officer. Combining my love for sports and ROTC, I play intramural sports for the ROTC team. I try to attend as many USA functions such as sports games, band concerts, and public speeches as I can. I enjoy spending my time here at South, but i hope to graduate soon and begin my life as a teacher/coach.
Dr. Pausch's video
After watching Dr. Pausch's video, I found myself wondering "why?". Until he brought it up during his speech, I had never stopped when presented with a task and ask myself "why should I do this?" or "why am I presented with this task at all?" Another point Dr. Pausch made was the saying "If you have to eat a frog don't stand and look at it too long, and if you have to eat three start with the biggest". I pondered on this thought for a while and I agree. Sometimes I find that I have sat and thought about something I needed to do for so long that I could have completed the task in half the time I wasted thinking about it.
This is not the first time I have seen Dr. Pausch speak though. I once walked through my living room and saw my dad watching this man speak. When I asked about it he told me Dr. Pausch had pancreatic cancer and that this would be his last lecture. I do not remember much from the speech, but immediately recognized him when I watched his video on time management. His ideas on time management have helped me as I hope to cut down on my "dead time".
