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.
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.
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.
