Ready. Set. Fly!

Ever imagine what it would be like to fly over a street in Indy? I mean I never really thought about it until I heard the zipline was coming for the Super Bowl festivities. I wouldn’t say I am scared of heights, I love roller coasters. But let me tell you, I was a little nervous about this one. After getting all strapped in and helmet on, it was time for me to walk up what seemed like 300 flights of stairs. (After doing a little research, I learned it’s 7 stories high) Here is what makes it worse, the stairs were the steal stairs that you could totally see right through. So as I was walking up all of the stairs, I could see everything below me. Let’s just say I was hanging on for dear life. And then you get to the very top…holy cow. Breath. Taking.

1. breath taking- it was so beautiful to see the city and all of the people up there.
2. breath taking- HOLY COW I AM SO HIGH AND ABOUT TO JUMP OFF????!!!

After getting a little calmer from talking with the worker, it was tim…

A New Chapter.

Man, I usually like to try and be funny or witty..but today will be different.
Today my sister left for Ireland. Hailey and I are 20 months apart. Yes, we have had our up and downs…but who doesn’t?! I can’t even tell you the longest we’ve been apart. I thought the day would come when I was in college and it was her turn to pick a college. But then she too picked UIndy! I thought the time would come when I graduated college…but I got a job at UIndy!
So today we’re about to test it all. I have been a wreck the past few hours. It’s been difficult so far. But one of my best friends posted on my sister’s wall and suddenly things didn’t seem so bad. So I leave you with this:

Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places!
You’re off and away!

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.
You’re on your own.  And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.

Let's Talk About Being A "Grown-Up"

When you’re younger all you can imagine is what your life will be like when you’re “all grown-up”. So let’s just fast forward…you’re in college and tired of sitting in class, listening to lectures, writing papers, studying for finals and GROUP PROJECTS. And then when you realize you are near graduation, suddenly growing up doesn’t seem so magical or glamorous. I am proud to say that I have just completed my 8th month in the grown-up/work world. I would say there are definitely some pro’s and con’s of working verses college. Here is a small list of what I came up with (more to come later):

College V. Being a Grown Up

1. A pro: NO HOMEWORK/FINALS! Ok, so there are some times you have to give up time on the weekend or stay a little late after work to get a project done. But here’s the good news, no homework or finals. So when you and your college sibling visit home, you have time to relax and have fun. Meanwhile, your sibling is studying their brains out and stressing …
