Today, is about learning how to do one new thing. What you learn does not have to be huge, it just has to be new. It’s the fact that you are learning. Take the time and learn one new thing today and follow after Pablo Picasso.

I am always doing that which I cannot, in order that I may learn how to do it. – Pablo Picasso

2013 was filled with many memories, some excellent and others not so great. 2013 did go above in beyond in many life categories.MK HYR2013 Here’s a little tribute to 2013 and just a few of the good things that came from a magical year.

A few things that didn’t make the list, that are worth noting:

  • Celebrating my one year at AREVA
  • Attending two Inaugural balls: North and South Carolina
  • Attending Inauguration on the Mall, what’s up Yellow section!
  • Trying homemade (the real deal) moonshine
  • Attending the event of the season: Taste of the South
  • Chatting with Santa at the Daughters of the American Revolution’s Open House
  • Enjoyed a traditional tailgate at Miller Park before a Brewers game
  • Toured the Neuschwanstein castle in Schwangau, Germany
  • Devoured a true Austrian Apfel Strudel
  • Jammed out with Hoodie Allen and Dave Matthews

With 2013 being so awesome, I can only imagine what 2014 has in store for me.

Ladies & Gents a DC family member of mine is making the move to Austin, Texas. I hear everything is bigger there, so it has that going for it. In the past, a few friends visited have said remarkable things about Austin: music scene=dope, food=texmex, atmosphere=amazing. Honestly after these reviews I can’t see her not being happy. She’s going to love it and I’m beyond excited for her. I just hate to see her go. I asked Kimmy to write a little post about expectations, so without further ado here it is:

but, seriously let’s get weird, Austin

So I’ve recently been informed that I’m being relocated to Austin, Texas. Dream come true, right? I think so. I work for a software start up and while there are a few bumps in my road, I’d say I’m pretty frickin’ lucky. Job right out of college, benefits, flexibility, booze at work. Now moving to Austin? I couldn’t be happier.

Given all the buzz we socialites hear about Austin, I’m beyond stoked to see for myself what it’s all about. My musical interests run the gambit and I try to be as open minded as possible. Culturally, I prefer a forward thinking, liberal town with great hills for running, slow-food beliefs, and a hot as balls climate. Below I’ve listed my expectations for this ‘grand’ place and once settled in I plan to comment on my thoughts with true experiences to back myself up.


  • music EVERYWHERE
  • bars with the most diverse/local beer selection imaginable
  • sexy people with even sexier tatoos
  • forward thinking food behaviors with a tex mex bias

Stay tuned yawl!
