Making Moves: From Miami, FL to Athens, OH

22 Jul

As most everyone knows, Addam and I recently packed all of our belongings into heart-shaped boxes and made the move to Athens, Ohio, where we will both be attending Ohio University this fall. I’ll be working on my Ph.D. in journalism, and Addam will be earning a bachelor’s in music production.

While we will always miss Miami and all the beautiful memories it brought us, we are happily turning the page to the newest chapter in our lives. We are, once again, becoming novices in the search for self-improvement — chasing the horizon in the hopes that it will bring us to bigger and better things.

Champagne Showers: VIP at LMFAO in MIA

15 Jul

After Bonnaroo and about a week before Addam and I left Miami, we had VIP tickets for an LMFAO show at the American Airlines Arena — where the Heat had just won the NBA championship one day prior.

Far East Movement opened for Redfoo and SkyBlu, who threw an AMAZING party and definitely knew how to party rock. Since we were VIP, Addam and I were so close we could practically reach out and touch the uncle/nephew duo, and when they showered the crowd with champagne, we could taste the bubbles! We had an incredible time, so I wanted to share some of the photos we took throughout the night.

PARTY ROCK!

Check out this link to my YouTube Channel to view a set of videos I took of the performance.

“Yo, I’m runnin’ through these ho’s like Drano; I got that devilish flow, rock ‘n’ roll, no halo. We party rock, yeah, that’s the crew that I’m reppin’; On the rise to the top, no lead in our zeppelin.” —  LMFAO, Party Rock Anthem, Sorry for Party Rocking (2011).

Blogaroo: The Roo Experience

14 Jul

I know we’re about a month out from Bonnaroo, but I’ve been so busy with all the transitions in my life that this is the first chance I’ve found to update everyone about the amazing time I had there.

I’ll get to all of my life changes in a later post, but this one is dedicated to Bonnaroo 2012 and the bands that made the journey from Miami, Florida to Manchester, Tennessee worth the 14-hour drive.
