As you can tell by the title of this blog post, not much has changed with me. That’s partly why I haven’t posted anything in a while. 

I’ll start with some positives: 

  • I just got back from an industry fantasy football draft at the Pro Football Hall of Fame. I spent a few days with some of the top fantasy football minds. 

  • My buddy asked me to officiate his wedding. I’ve been studying / doing mock ceremonies in my living room with stuffed animals. (I’ve never officiated a wedding before, but I’ve been an Ordained Minister for a while)

  •  I’ve been podcasting with my boy Ani. You can can find every episode under the “PODCAST” tab, right here on my page! #FridayFriends (Check out the new logo)

  • I lost about 8 pounds and I can fit in my pants again.

Ok.. Let me get to why #MyLifeIsAMess. I get out of work around 2-3am most days. In the DC metro area public transportation isn’t fully running at that hour, so I drive to work. When I get home 9 out of 10 times the parking lot to my apartment building is full. The free street parking around my apartment building is full. About 4-5 blocks away, there’s available parking but all cars need to be moved by 8am. I don’t mind the walk, right now while it’s summer, but I’m not a big fan of getting home, sleeping for a couple hours, walking back to my car and moving it to my lot before 8 am. Keep in mind, I’m not the only one circling around looking for a spot either. Picture starving sharks circling around looking for something to attack. That’s what it feels like.

MY SOLUTION: Instead of driving around looking for parking when I get out of work, I’ve been driving for rideshare companies until 4-5 in the morning. The ultimate side hustle flex! I live in the middle of 3 airports and I’ve had a steady amount of rides every night. Most nights, I have rides that head towards where I live and I periodically get a chance to check for open spots in between rides, but for the most part nothing has opened up before 4:30am. The people I pick up are a cast of characters and it’s been pretty entertaining.

My question to you is: What would you do? Would you rideshare side hustle or would you just park a few blocks away and move your far a couple hours later?

Dang peer pressure...

Dang peer pressure… You’ve gone and done it. You, YES YOU are to blame for this. Ya’ll are forcing me to do something I’ve never done before, again.

Every Monday, as I’m scrolling through the BIG 3 social media apps, I come across the hashtag “#MotivationMonday.” Well, today is the day I have finally been motivated. In 2019 I will complete my first (and probably only) FULL MARATHON!

I hate running, but I bought running sneakers about 2 years ago and never used them. So, tomorrow I will dust them off and start my training. If you know any good marathons in the DMV, let me know. I haven’t figured out anything past the “get out a run” part.
