The word “Challenick” does not mean anything on its own. The name is a combination of my first, middle and last name: Chandler Allen Warrick. This name represents exactly what this blog conveys: everything that makes up who I am.
As a 90’s kid, I grew up on Nickelodeon and Nintendo. In high school, I was a bit of a nerd. However, this term never carried any negative connotations for me. Video games, gadgets, and electronic music were always on the forefront of my mind. I was even a disc jockey for a few gigs my Junior year.
After graduation, my love for electronics and dance music did not fade. Instead, I began meeting new people at Middle Tennessee State University who bore the same interests. People like this inspired me to pursue a degree in Emergent Communications, which focuses on everything that has always intrigued me.
I graduated from MTSU as summa cum laude in December 2017. My plans for the future are as they have always been: somewhat vague. I know I wish to continue to pursue media in its multitude of forms. Becoming an online journalist, social media manager, or video producer would be a dream come true. Moreover, I would not complain if I was given the opportunity to work with video games. Only time will tell.
Until then, I will do as I have for all of my life: invest myself in my interests. In doing so, I will continue to publish content based on these topics on this blog. Be sure to come back often to see what is going on in the life of Challenick.
