Text 17 Apr 2 notes Last week in Lincoln’s Hometown

This is it, my last week in Springfield.

It feels weird to say it but in just a few days I’ll be leaving town and starting on a new adventure.  In this last year my life has seen a huge amount of change.

-started the paleo diet

-started crossfit

-ran my own classroom

-Lost 125 pounds

-Graduated College

-Licensed to teach Social Studies 6-12 in Illinois

-Bought my first gown up car that cost more than $2000

-Made an amazing group of Crossfit Friends

-Competed in the open

-Did my first pull up, strict pull up, learned to do all sorts of crazy and fun strongman stuff

-Got two awards for my work as a Park Ranger

-Lost a job at a park due to budget, but found a new job at a new park.

-Worked for a short time at Starbucks.

-Spent New Years in NYC with some amazing people

And way too much other things to list. 

I’d like to thank all the great people that I’ve met here, and I hope that we will see eachother again soon.  I guess sometime soon I’ll have to change the name of this page into something that reflects what I’m doing now until then thanks for keeping up with me and I hope that you will use this to see how my journey continues in the rest of 2012 and beyond.

I want so many of them, and my collection is already too big, someone help me.

Text 10 Feb 3 notes Love visitors, and funny customer encounters

that1tallbitch:

^ I went to visit Steve (student teacher from first semester) with Evan at his place of employment: Starbucks. LOLOLOLOL. only in america.

It’s funny now she calls me Steve and that the three of us can just sit and joke around.  I love it, and it’s one of the things that I hope to keep going, so if you’re a former student of mine feel free to come in, call me Steve, and enjoy a beverage that I make you.  If you’re not a former student feel free to do those things as well.

If you come visit me and I can swing it, I’ll sit down with you share some laughter and a few smiles but before long my 10 mins of break will be up.  I love talking to people and funny moments to brighten up both of our days.
