TLDR — If you need help, tell someone. Find someone that you trust. If there is no one, call 1-800-273-8255 in the United States to reach the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. You CAN make it through this.
’nuff said. It’s been a wonderful beach birthday, a rapid week of working, and a great night. As I ramp up for a very intense week, I ALMOST took the weekend to head to Columbus, but decided to take advantage of some downtime with the fam, instead. Not even mad though because it was still a great win to watch on TV, cheering on the Hokies from Fredericksburg for the first time in a long time. Here was the scene in Blacksburg…
As I hit the road yet again, I’ll go ahead and leave this here…Great answer to the question of “What’s a Hokie?”, #12! Read more
Greetings, my friends & thanks for reading. I’ve been back home for about two days. And, obviously – I’m hitting the road yet again! Before I leave, I wanted to make sure that I shared some of my favorite snaps from my birthday trip to Bermuda! I hope you enjoy them.
I’m heading to Blacksburg for the next 2 or 3 days for some business thangs. I hope to catch up on life sometime between now and the time I get back…I hope! #LifeNeverStops
TLDR– I’m going to spend in a week completely disconnected from the world, working, thinking, relaxing, and floating in the ocean and deciding what the heck to do with my life. See you all when I get back from Bermuda next Friday! Read more
Check out this great info graphic as we prepare for a 4:00 p.m. kickoff this Saturday against the TRIBE of William & Mary. Beginning 50 years of Lane Stadium football, this will be the first season in 6 years that I don’t have season tickets – becuase I am no longer a student!!
It’s a bummer but it’s excited to usher in a new era of Hokie football nonetheless, and you know I’ll be in Blacksburg to check out the Hokies in person before the season ends! I’ll be jingling my keys on third down from the middle of the Atlantic ocean. :)
Took a spontaneous road trip to the deep south to celebrate my mother’s birthday this week, so I won’t be around much! But, there was one thing I absolutely needed to share – and that was this video of my little cousin just getting his MOVES on! It’s great…check it out. Let me know if you have any props for him, I’ll be sure to pass them on to little MJ!
Last night, I just happened to be going through the backend of the website, cleaning up a few things before I hit the road for a few days. Specifically, I was making an attempt at consolidating a lot of the categories that I formerly used to categorize blog posts as I wrote them. As I’ve revamped the site over the past few weeks and months, many of them just weren’t as relevant. This long, long process took me back to 2011 and reminded me that my blog and brand were originally established for that Homecoming campaign way back when in senior year of college. :) This morning, I was reminded me of that yet again with a message from one of my best friends.
Seeing that immediately took me back to a message I received earlier this year from a friend who had been inside a local Goodwill thrift shop. We eventually established the “Ultimate Hokie” bucket list as a result. Ask about THAT, it’s too funny. :)
