Apple Watch, Chicago, Melanoma Monday, and Avengers

Wow! Talk about a fully loaded weekend! I saw the new Avengers movie, went to chicago & had tons of fun, saw my cousin at home & at work, and hung out with a ton of friends and fellow nerds! What a blast!

I’m so tired, but it’s the good kind of tired. I’ve done so much walking. I walked about 7 miles this weekend & I walked a mile today so about 8 miles total. Plus I’ll probably be walking 2 more miles on Wednesday so about 10 miles in 4 days. Not too bad. It feels really good to get out on these awesomely nice days & just walk around.

After being so busy & stressed last week, it was nice to get away for the weekend & have tons of fun & just chill with awesome people.

Anyway, below the text, you’ll see 2 videos. The first one is my vlog from today. The second video is my sister’s radio interview from this morning.

Enjoy the videos & have a great Monday.

May the 4th be with you!

 

Melanoma Awareness Month – May

Hey guys!

So yesterday in my VLOG, I told you that my sister had melanoma & that she beat it. I also mentioned that she was going to be interviewed via radio & a printed article. The article just went live and, as promised, here’s the link.

Scared Of Skin Cancer? Get Yourself Checked!

The radio interview is scheduled for Monday, May 4th, 2015 at 10:30 AM EST on 96.5 FM – The Pledge & 1260 AM. These are Grand Rapids, MI area stations.

Please get yourself checked. If you have melanoma and don’t get it check, it can lead to very serious complications or worse. Just using a tanning bed once can be a life game-changer. Be aware. Always check your body for new moles and if you have moles, get them checked out.

Have a good afternoon guys!

Peace

Vacation Time – Away From Crazy Life

Hello everyone! If any college students are on spring break, I hope you are enjoying it. For those not on break yet, I hope your time comes soon.

I’ve been enjoying my break a lot. It started off with a relaxing weekend at my apartment. We didn’t do too much other than watch movies, Simpsons, and the closing ceremonies of the Winter Olympics. It was fun just to relax and hang out.

Monday, I went to my cousin’s house and stayed there for a couple days. We had to take his car into the shop for repairs. More on that later. We hung out with his sister while thier mom (my aunt) worked. We had fun watching Looney Tunes via Netflix streaming. (I’m hoping to see it in iPhones and iPads).  We just stayed at home and relaxed, which is always good especially if your life is hectic and chaotic.

Thursday, my aunt took us to my parent’s house and we began our trip up to my cottage with a stop off at La Señorita, a fantastic mexican restaurant if you are journeying in Northern Michigan.  After the long journey, we were finally able to continue relaxing in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.  It is a wonderful feeling to be able to just relax and not worry about the rest of the world.  And even when you are here in Michigan, especially in the wilderness, you are able to escape the rest of the world.  Sure, I have internet here and satellite TV, but I get to spend time with my family and just hang out with them.

We did get an update on my cousin’s car.  There is a transmission fluid leak somewhere and they are trying to fix it.  Let’s hope that’s the only problem and a new transmission, or a new car, won’t be necessary.

We’ll be making our long Journey back home on Sunday.  I just need to remember to make sure I grab some more bed padding since my aerobed popped last week.  That’s another blog rant for another time.

I hope you all have a refreshing weekend.  Take it easy and I’ll blog some more when I have more time on my hands.  🙂
