The Anniversary nobody wants to celebrate

Five years ago I received a text from my mom saying Emily was in Brain Surgery. She had been in a car accident and it was serious. I was in the middle of filming commercials for my college’s Freshman Orientations. I was an Orientation Leader and the first orientation was happening in a few weeks.

Kansas City Caffeine Crawl

I know you’ve probably heard of pub crawls but have you ever heard of a caffeine crawl?

How to Cure the Holiday Hangover

If you are anything like me, January is a hard month. It is the first month of a new year and right after two long months filled with some much holiday spirit. First you have November where you are preparing for Thanksgiving and then there is December gearing up to Christmas and New Years. Then finally you come to January, and it all comes to a crashing halt. You are expected to then go back to work with not another company wide day off until Memorial Day. You start your New Years Resolutions which sometimes means a complete change in your normal daily routine. All those cheery Holiday decorations are taken down and you are brought back to reality. With all of these sudden changes you are left with what I like to call a holiday hangover.
