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!
