Life Tracks cover

  1. 99 problems - Jay Z
    The reason I chose this song is because in elementary school every morning my dad would play this song before he dropped me off. To this day i still listen to hear it sometimes but i do know every word of it because of those mornings.


  1. Stay- Florida Georgia Line
This song brings back memories. I went to the Florida Georgia Line concert last night with some old friends of mine and it was the best time ever. The last song I remember was Stay. Everytime i

  1. I Just Want It All-  Kid Ink
This song means a lot because the lyrics really hit me and mean a lot. It goes I just want it all, cars and the clothes, money and the girls. When I am older this is what I want, to be successful and have all those things in the lyrics.


  1. Counting Stars- One Republic
I really like this song because it really has a good beat and I’ve always liked One Republic. There really is no significant meaning or memory with this song.

  1. My Town - Birdman
This song means a lot to me because this was my walk-up song last year in baseball. Which means every time I came up to the plate to swing this song played. One of the lyrics “ take a picture when I’m standing on the mound” I am also a pitcher so it is a really relevant song.


  1. Ruff Ryders- DMX
This song is just a really good song to get hype and pumped up for before a big game or the gym. It is apart of my gym playlist, along with about 35 other songs that get my adreynaline going but I put this one on because its the best.


  1. Southern Girl- Tim McGraw
When I took my visit to Nicholls State University for baseball and I had committed, all I saw were country and southern girls which were all beautiful and then i heard this song and I was like “BOOM! This song is on point”


  1. Clique- Kanye West
This song is probably my most favorite because every home game last year we played this song before we took the field. We had such a good bond last year as a team and this song symbolizes that.


  1. Thrill Of It- Wiz Khailfa
This is a song that I would listen to a lot during middle school after my friend had shown it to me. It was really weird at first because I wasn’t a big rap fan but after he had showed me the song I instantly liked that type of music.


  1. Work remix- A$AP Ferg
I chose this song because When I hear it or when I see the name it instantly brings me back to summer ‘13 and all the fun times I had with my college boys and old friends. All the baseball tournaments that we had won and attended. I consider this the song of that summer!

Quotes



  1. Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value. –Albert Einstein
The reason I chose this quote is because you want to strive to be a value and the success will come. If you strive for success that will most likely end up in failure most of the time.
     2. You become what you believe. –Oprah Winfrey
This quote is pretty meaningful because whatever you want to do in life pursue it and dont give up until you are satisfied. I really believe this is possible because i’ve seen so many documentaries on hard working athletes, actors, doctors etc. on working hard and not stopping until they’re at the top.
    3. Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.-- Arnold Schwarzenegger
This is my favorite quote because it really hits me and i can really relate to it. I’ve had to overcome many struggles in training and in life to be where I am today. If I never lived by this, I would not be the athlete, or student that I am.

Artifact

My artifact that I had chosen was my first ever career home-run in high school.  It  means a lot to me because when I hit the home-run it was also a game winner. So it makes it 10x more special to me. It was against Trinity Christian sophomore year at their field. Top of the 7th, and we were down by 1 and i was up to plate, with a runner on 2nd base. High fastball and your boy took it yay town over the left field wall. I keep the ball in a plastic covering hanging on my wall and I will sometimes just look at it and it brings a smile to my face. I will definitely tell and show my kids about it one day.

Brand Statement & Logo




The reason I chose the logo and images that I did is because it has a meaning behind it.. The weights are an indication of strength and also athleticism. The neuron is an indication of  science and also the major that i want to do, Sports medicine therefore the weight and neuron. Last, the black half circle design shows it all comes together as a whole.  The reason my logo is called Ernie Inc is because my last name is Ernestine and when i was a freshmen i was given the nickname Ernie because in “Erne”stine they cut it short and added the “ie”. Ever since then it has stuck with me and will forever.
