(Robbie’s note: Ignore some of the awkward photo dimensions. I’ll have to fix that later.)
I never thought I would complain about not being allowed to post about something on social media. It’s perhaps the biggest first-world problem next to, “There are too many games to play! UUUUGGGGHHH!!”
But I can finally, FINALLY, announce that I am an intern for Game Informer for the winter 2018 program!!
Life is funny sometimes. For the longest time, math was my best subject in grade school, and even then I wouldn’t say I excelled at it. Next to anything science related, English/writing was my worst subject. Now, I’m a Stephen F. Austin State University alumnus with a journalism degree with an emphasis in news writing. Ironic, right?
Everything I learned while earning that degree has been invaluable to me. In fact, going to SFA is what helped me discover that I’m a capable writer, but I struggled in my journey to eventually be dubbed an SFA Lumberjack.
You’ve probably seen Pokemon GO all over your social media feeds already, or, more than likely, you already ran over someone who was aimlessly walking in the middle of a street while they were on their quest to catch ’em all.
In just a few days, PGO has already become a sensation of sorts.
Well, a blessing finally fell into my lap more than two months ago: I got a job with The Daily Sentinel, the newspaper in Nacogdoches, Texas, as the assistant news editor. This was all, of course, fantastic, but getting hired on the spot basically meant had about a week to not only find a new place where thousands of college students already had their leases paid for months in advance, but getting moved in as well.
As I finally settled in town after a week lacking exercise, it was a bit difficult getting into a routine, but I was able to keep things up for about two weeks. I signed up to workout at one of the local gyms and used running routes I previously made for myself during my Stephen F. Austin State University days.
Yeah… it’s been just a little while since I posted on here, so I’m going to need you to ignore that.
Anyway, the number of posts I have will change over the next few weeks because, well… I may or may not have been pushed to do a Spartan Race with my dad and cousin, and ultimately signed up for it out of my own free will.
In short, a Spartan Race is where participants go through dozens of obstacles across a certain mileage. According to Spartan’s website, it’s also “the fastest growing participant sport in the world.” I’m not interested at all in most sports, but I’ll take their word for it.
Welcome to the first post on my blog everyone! Ideally, I wanted this to be something more comedic or random because I could not possibly live my life without those two factors. And by the way, if you’re wondering what in the world this site is, head over to my “about my blog” page. Also keep in mind that I’m still working out the kinks to the place.
Anyway, something happened recently I was not at all expecting. It all started with a breakdown I had via my Instagram – and for future reference, don’t have a breakdown via my, er, your Instagram.
