Playing Paintball for the First Time

I try to live an up-for-anything lifestyle but when I was invited by some coworkers to play paintball my first thought was, “Voluntarily feel pain for recreational purposes? No thanks.” But not wanting to condemn something before I’d tried it, I reluctantly said yes and spent the following days in silent panic. Advertisements

Kentucky Derby 2014 | Suitcasey

Hello again! It’s been way too long since I’ve shared a travel story. I won’t say that my attempt at the Take 12 Trips Challenge was a complete failure, just that I took a three-month hiatus. I’m going to use a lame excuse and blame my busy work schedule but I’m back with another new trip and […]

Take 12 Trips Challenge: November

November was the first full month since my commitment to the Take 12 Trips Challenge and of course it was a month of complete madness. I started a new job with a Chicago sports team and I’ve been balancing the unemployed-to-fulltime transition with a heavy addiction to college sports. My life has been consumed by […]

The Girls: Caribbean Cruise Edition

A lot of spontaneity goes into the trips that my two best friends, Sam and Lindsay, and I take. A few years ago it was a random night that we got together and booked tickets for a 5-day cruise through the Caribbean. This was my first cruise and I learned a lot through a series […]

Giving Thanks | Suitcasey

In the spirit of Thanksgiving and inspired by my roommate and nonbiological sister, Sarah The Half Dietitian Half Human, I’m dedicating a blog entry to the things that I am thankful for. I’m limiting my list to five because when I attempted to make it longer I ended up with a list of my favorite foods.
