I spent this 90 degree Memorial Day at Marsh Creek Paddle Boarding; it’s becoming my new addiction. We paddled for three hours, at least one full one being spent lounging in the middle of the lake. My friend’s girlfriend informed us that “paddle boarding yoga” is now a thing. We attempted a few yoga poses (none

Last week I paid for the majority of my Ireland trip. It left a pretty devastating hole in my bank account I’ve been trying not to look at. I decided I should probably put in my head that my four day Memorial Day weekend would have to be cheap; I even considered using it as a work weekend.
I was talking with a friend last night about Preakness and she remarked that she didn’t think “regular” people (like me) were able to go. She pictured a classy affair with big hats, navy sportcoats, boat shoes, and fancy drinks garnished with slices of fruit. I had to explain that while this part of the
Memorial Day Weekend is the traditional summer kickoff. Due to all the money I’m already set to spend this summer (thanks, Ireland), I decided to have a low key four days. I did a day trip to Gettysburg yesterday (which will be my next post), and am going to Marsh Creek for a few hours

In very corresponding news, I’m finally going to Ireland this summer! I’m leaving Newark for Dublin on July 24th, and flying back from Belfast on August 6th.
This is the perfect song to add to your CD’s, playlists, etc., for either your ride down to, or your time at whatever shore you go to this summer. Learn it.
Take a look at this music video. Besides being a phenomenal song, what jumps out at you? If you’re anything like me, you took one look at the bicycle/drinking contraption they’re riding around on and said to yourself, “I need that in my life.” My friend Kelsey and my brother introduced me to “One More
Planning a Soberish Fun Day I meant to start this post Sunday, but my body has literally prevented me. I believe I’ve posted before how I try and have “sober fun weekends” every once in a while, to convince myself there is no problem. I try and find some sort of activity (preferably outdoors) which
