So I might have not quite finished my last project, but that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t just jump right in and start a new one, right?

The Jackster


My mom and Linda left today. :(

This was such a fun few days with them. Not only did we walk all over kingdom come, see a whole lotta sights, and basically keep our days packed to the brim, but it was also just really fun to hang out with them. I’ve known Linda basically since I can remember and it was cool to help her experience some of the things she’s always wanted to do. Also, she LOVES the Washington Monument.

Also, I just want to note that it took almost 12 years, but my mom has finally embraced “The Jackster” nickname. She even signs her notes to us that way. I think it’s hilarious that it’s signed “The Jackster” with “mom” in parentheses (I guess just in case I forget who The Jackster is. Who am I kidding, The Jackster is unforgettable.). Also, her friends call her “JB” which makes me chuckle for some reason.

Day in DC

 111/365 This morning we got up and headed into DC. Linda has never been to DC, so the whole point of this trip was to get in as many tourist attractions as possible. Well, we couldn’t have picked a better day. In my infinite wisdom, I basically picked the least efficient way for us to […]

Gettysburg (110/365)

April 21, 2014

 110/365 This morning we all piled into the car and took what was a surprisingly short trip up to Gettysburg. Only Andrew had been there before and I don’t think any of us knew what to expect. Well, seven hours later, I would say our trip was a success!  Since I grew up going to […]

Season 8 DC Rollergirls Championships (109/365)

April 19, 2014
Bout Day!

109/365 Today was the DC Rollergirls Season 8 Championship. Honestly, I can’t believe the season is over already. I feel like it was just yesterday that I was putting my skates on for our first bout up in Baltimore. But eight bouts later and my first season of roller derby is finished.    My team […]
