This is a social bar league I joined with some friends. Our primary sport is Indoor Bar Bocce...and we're kinda good too. We change our name every season but the awesomeness of the team remains. Below are our results...
Team: Buca Di Bocce

Result: 2nd Place
Winter 2012 (pictured below)

A buddy of mine in Chicago alerted me to the latest awesomeness from the peeps at CollegeHumor. Take a (insert your own adjective here) Nickelback song and the incessant Instagram that the kids and hipster iPhone users do. Okay okay fine...Droid kids are doing the Instagram as well of their food and whatever else they are documenting.
Here's a video that takes Nickelback's "Photograph" (with new lyrics) and pairs up the "art" of Instagram-ing and marries the two together. Enjoy!
You've been asking for years, why doesn't the music television station play music videos anymore? These folks answered that question for you.
It is censored with the beeps and all but I wouldn't totally play it too loud at the office.
Today is Veteran's Day. We give a special thanks to anyone who has donned the uniform and help protect this country and allow us to have the freedoms that we enjoy.
The video below is a special one because the love that is shown is amazing. Troops are serving in Iraq and Afghanistan and they aren't only missed by their husbands, wives, children and other human family members but also their four legged family as well too.
The soldier in this video is a buddy of mine from WVU, Andrew Schmidt. We partied at FIJI house a good bit and he's an overall great guy. "Gracie" missed him so much and shows it in this video.
Thanks again to everyone who has served and are currently serving! You are not only thought about only on this but everyday.
When I was a student at Franconia Elementary, Twain Intermediate and Edison High School, there were two things that I excelled at:
I was so bad at art in fact, that the teacher wouldn't display any of my pieces with the other members of the class so I wouldn't get ridiculed for my lack of art skills. This changed, however, when my buddy Scott emailed a group of us and in an effort to surprise his wife for her birthday, he gathered a bunch of friends together where we would all hang in a painting class with an instructor, dine and drink with whatever we brought and walk away with the artwork we created.
Below, you will find the artwork from my group of friends who went out that evening. Please critique as you wish...just please, be nice. I'm fragile.
1. This was Jen the instructor's painting. This is what the finished product should look like.
2. This was mine.
3. These are Colleen's (birthday girl) and Scott's (birthday girl's husband and ringleader)
4. Kyle and Ashley's paintings are here
5. My buds Doug and Katie's artwork
6. Our buddy Ruda is on the left and some random girl is on the right. I mainly took a photo of hers for two reasons (1) the painting came out really good and (2) she was super cute and I wanted a reason to talk to her...and I totes failed to get her number.
Now I beg of you...please be gentle when critiquing my artwork. If you've never been to one of these, you have got to go. This same group is going back again and trying our hand at painting one more time. I'll get the finished artwork back up here once the paint has dried.
If you're a reader of this blog, you know that I'm weird. Well...duh.
The other thing you might know about me if you read this blog is that I received my master's degree in higher education student affairs in summer 2011 from The George Mason University. When I'm not rocking out on the DC101, I can be found working on a couple different college campuses either as an academic advisor or an instructor. Yeah I know right...they let my dumbass get in front of a classroom and teach the youths. Yup...they did!
For those of you who were members of the Class of 2012 from high school and will soon be heading off to college, here are a few things that you must know to be successful while away at your college/university you'll be attending.
Now...for those of you who attended an orientation over the summer and actually paid attention, you should have already heard the following. If not...write this down!
