This has got to be the best name for a national park. Continue reading The Badlands
This is Carol, my little sister through Big Brother Big Sister. She and I were matched in 2010 when she was 8 years and we both lived in Prescott, Arizona. Ok I just need to do some before and after shots because I can’t believe how much she’s grown since we first started hanging out! Check it out. The … Continue reading Power Team Big-Lil’ Sis Reunited!
From these last few posts it looks like I’ve just smoothly hopped between cities, but I assure you that the time riding in between has been far from smooth. In a good way, of course! So I thought I’d attempt to describe what is cool about riding a motorcycle. I’ll start from the beginning. Three years ago the day before Christmas Eve, my three … Continue reading The Reason for the Road
I made it to Bryan and Brittany’s house 2 hours before either of them were home, so Bryan took pictures of the hideaway key and my room so I could come in and put my stuff down. This was very generous considering they were complete strangers- no connection to friends or family whatsoever. We found each other on Couch Surfing, which is this awesome … Continue reading Meet Bryan and Brittany

Luckily After the first strike of lightening I found a bridge to hide under and a couple of friends to hang out with. Mike owns the jeep up ahead, … Continue reading When you feel scared of those dark, ominous, fast approaching clouds…

It’s interesting that I arrived as a stranger on Wednesday, and left on … Continue reading Welcome to Philly
On my second to last day of work at the box office, I was left by myself for 6 hours. SIX hours. Completely. Alone. With no one to fight by my side and no one to call for backup. I think I held my own pretty well though. I could have gotten seriously hurt, though. Thanks Mike and Gabrielle. Continue reading Teaching My Bosses a Lesson
As some of you know I am taking off on a cross country motorcycle trip soon. As some of you may not know, I am currently scared shitless. But I think that’s ok. I’ve felt this kind of terror before, and it has usually preceded some cool experiences; like traveling, going to college for the first time, or living on my own. So even though … Continue reading My Motorcycle’s First Selfie!
I have never felt hatred toward any animals. Except for two. One drizzly morning while visiting my stepmom’s family in Georgia, I decided to go for a run. I laced up my sneakers, popped in my headphones, and headed out the door to Geto Boys’ “Damn it feels good to be a gangsta.” As I approached the neighborhood exit I saw trotting toward me on the opposite side … Continue reading Turkey Thieves
