Baring My Soul For November Project – New Orleans

Earlier this week, the co-leaders from November Project-New Orleans presented me with the Positivity Award, which is given out to a member who isn’t necessarily the fastest or loudest, but is a steady influence at workouts and does his or her best to promote and grow the November Project movement. November Project allows members to…

Red Dress Run-ning In New Orleans

Of all the things I’ve called to tell my mom — and believe me, there have been a lot over the years — what I told her two weeks ago definitely set a new standard. “My shoulders are impossible to fit in a dress.” She responded as I expected. Then I told her why I…

From New Orleans To Biloxi And Back

Sometimes it feels great to get away. Easy, now: I’m not talking about bank robberies. This past weekend was another festival weekend in New Orleans and unlike the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival or Voodoo Music & Arts Experience, the Essence Festival takes place right downtown. While most of the music is confined inside the…

The Half Hour And More Fun Opportunities

Five months ago I got free tickets to a concert at The Civic Theatre featuring Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. It turned out to be an amazing experience and one where I could truly “feel” the music. Earlier this month, before I went on a 10-day work trip with the USTFCCCA to Eugene, Oregon for the NCAA Division I…

Can’t Believe I’m Living In…

Sometimes it hits me at the strangest times. Like last week as I drove back from the grocery store. I just crossed the intersection of Bienville Street and Galvez Street and caught a very brief glimpse of the skyline through a clearing in the trees. “I’m living in New Orleans.” I honestly said it out loud…

This was a picture from the Usher concert. Shout out to the guy's head in front of me.

Macklemore, Usher and New Orleans, Oh My!

I love live performance art. Musicals? Been to several Broadway shows in my life, including The Lion King when it was sold out for months on end during its hey-day (Thanks a bunch, Grandma!). Plays? Don’t get me started on Dickens  (My family still laughs about it). Professional wrestling? Yes, that counts. It’s so different in person than…

Flipping The Calendar From 2015 To 2016

Once again I have been awful about updating this blog. December was quite a busy month around these parts. Before I knew it, January hit and that means 2016 came with it. Let’s backtrack a bit and fill you in on what happened in December. From December 10 until December 19, I was in San…

Catching Up Since the Move to New Orleans

New Orleans. Wow. I never thought I’d call The Big Easy home. Hell, if you told me after I graduated from the University of Delaware that within the next eight years I’d live in New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, Texas, Georgia and Louisiana, I wouldn’t have believed you. Life takes you where it damn well pleases….

Banner Herald Box

Clark Kent Left the Daily Planet

It started to hit me when I turned off my computer for the last time at the Athens Banner-Herald. Rarely did I turn it off before (mostly logged out), but it felt right. Once I walked out the door and it shut behind me, the realization hit like a truck. That very well could have…

Here's a nifty little map of the moves, which all started from Wilmington, Delaware in August 2007.

On the Move Again: Hello, New Orleans

A little more than two years ago I drove to New Orleans, nervous but excited. As it turns out, not much changes in the span of 859 days. Back in 2013, I decided to attend WrestleMania 30 by myself. I had never been to The Big Easy, let alone stepped out of my comfort zone that…
