Snowstorm Jonas

2016 has certainly started quite interestingly. I didn’t do anything out of the ordinary to ring the new year in but still within its first 24 days its had its adventures. Until 2 days ago, I would have said that going to Nashville, Tennessee was the most exciting thing that has happened thus far. (Don’t …

I’m Not a Bad Luck Charm…

I’m an adventure token! But really, consider that your fair warning if you ever decide to travel with me. What can I say? What can go wrong always seems to go wrong. For instance a couple of weekends ago, I was planning the most spectacular weekend reunion with my favorite college roommates when on my way …

The 27 Year Old Student (The Sequel)

I’m not getting any younger. Luckily neither are the other students in my classes. I survived my first semester of VCU, in a class which was full of very young underclassman, including a freshman who had no idea what a blue book was, and I earned an A. Now I’m back for my second semester in which I finally …

The 26 Year Old Student

I’m a self-proclaimed nerd. Actually others would proclaim me a nerd too. So when I moved in with 3 girls who are in nursing school, who do a lot of sitting in our living room studying, I didn’t pity them like a normal person would. Most people would think, “Better them than I.” But not …

Thoughts on 13.1

How does one explain the thought process that goes into deciding to run a half marathon? With me, I don’t think there really was one. I imagine it starts somewhere around signing up for the race. One day, I asked my friend, “Hey, do you think I could run a half marathon?” He said yes and …

My Physical Therapy Experience

I have a physical therapist; therefore I’m practically an athlete. Last Friday, I did something I usually don’t do; I went to the doctor. For my knee. After years of it bothering me. Yes, I said years. When I called, the receptionist asked me how long it’d been bothering me and I mumbled something about it …

Fall is finally starting to show its chilly place around these parts and I’m all kinds of excited about it. One of the best parts about fall are the events that take place during this glorious season! Two weekends ago I had the opportunity to attend one of those events: The State Fair of Virginia. …
