Bucket List Item #11: Pick a City and GO

No, I don’t mean drop a bunch of money and go somewhere exotic. In the wise words of Sweet Brown, “Ain’t nobody got time (or money) for that!” What I mean is to pick a city that you’ve heard about, passed through, or had the chance to go to many times, but never really took…

Bucket List Item #10: Summer X Games!

In honor of today starting the Summer X Games in Austin, Texas, I thought I’d write about my bucket list experience at the Summer X Games. No, I’m not there right now, and unfortunately it’s the last one in Austin (tear), but I did make out there when it was in LA and I LOVED…

Bucket List Item #9: Join THE PLAYERS Club

I can almost guarantee this is not what you’re thinking, but hey, it’s your bucket list… you can join whatever Players Club your little heart desires. What I’m referring to is THE PLAYERS Championship golf tournament! Anyone who knows me knows that golf really isn’t my thing. I’ve never played it (unless we count super…

Bucket List Item #8: Talk Derby to Me

It’s been awhile! But that’s a good thing in bucket list land because that means I’ve been keeping busy. 🙂 As some of you know from seeing my pictures, I was working the Kentucky Oaks and Derby races earlier this month, and I HIGHLY recommend adding the Derby to your bucket list. A few years…

Bucket List Item #7: March Madness

Queue *It’s the MOST wonderful time of the yeeeeear* For some of you, March Madness means absolutely nothing other than possibly an aggressive arrival of spring. But to the majority of us (I mean, of YOU), March Madness is the most exciting time of year – several weeks of non-stop college basketball. For those of…

Bucket List Item #6: “Summit” Up

All of us have passions, whether it be career-focused or personal, and we need to do as much as possible to keep those passion wheels turning. What I’ve found that helps to give you that boost that you need to keep reaching for more is to surround yourself with people with similar passions to learn…

Bucket List Item #5: Hit Up a Museum

I know, I know. Unfortunately, museums have a reputation of being boring and/or snooty, especially in what I like to call our “SQUIRREL! Era” (in other words, our generation with extremely small attention spans and lack of interest in anything that moves slowly). Museums also get a bad rap for the confusion factor, especially in…

Bucket List Item #4: Stop Asking for THINGS

Yes, you read it right, and yes, it can seem a little ridiculous for a bucket list, but I promise you it will make sense. You can thank me later 😉 This week’s item seemed appropriate with Valentine’s Day approaching this weekend. Some of you may despise the Hallmark holiday, while others may expect to…

Bucket List Item #3: Have A Snow Day

This time of year gives all of us some mixed feelings with the mixed weather conditions. Obviously it varies depending on where you live, but most people have a love-hate relationship when the snow and crappy weather comes on strong and you get a little stir crazy (or what I like to call seasonal depression…

Bucket List Item #2: Just Dance

To everyone who knows me and read the title, you’re probably not surprised at all, nor should you be. I am the person who danced as a child and an adult, in the car and in the club, to music and shamelessly to nothing but the music playing in my head. I truly believe that…

Bucket List Item #1: Strike A Pose

When I moved to a new city in 2011, something happened that was COMPLETELY off the wall from what I expected to happen when I moved here. I came to continue my career in sports after working for WVU Sports Communications (go Mountaineers!), because unfortunately, my hometown doesn’t have any professional teams… no offense Seawolves…

I’m Backkkk

Friends, Family, Randoms…. After numerous people have brought up starting a blog to me recently, I feel like it’s a sign to get this one going again! As some of you know who read it before, this was a blog I was required to maintain for a college course that I loved doing, but immediately…
