Peachtree Ready!

image

Alright… Waves have been assigned, training’s done, and now my number has been picked up! I’m officially ready for the 43rd running of the AJC Peachtree Road Race!

When I naively put my name in the lottery I figured, “There’s no way I’ll actually get picked, so why not!?” Yeah… That’ll teach me! Lol! I’ve never been much of a runner but I’m looking forward to giving it a try… I will say I’m a little nervous, though. Going into this, I had no idea a 10k was equivalent to 6.2 miles! But, I’ve done my best to prepare for this and I think I’ll at least be able to finish (that’s my only goal).

So to the other 59,999 people who will be braving the heat with me on Wednesday, July 4th, down Peachtree Street, I wish you the best of luck!

Share this story with others you may know of in the race! Leave a comment if you, too, will be out there on the 4th! Is this your first time, too? How are you feeling going into it? Ready to make this run your B*tch!?! Lol… Lemme know!

Photo A Day: July

image

Like just about everyone else in this digital age, I’m something of a photo whore, always have been. I have photo albums and scrap books starting from 4th grade all the way through college graduation… It’s just something I do.

Social outlets like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, especially, have given ordinary people the ability to easily chronicle and share even the most mundane of daily activities and, honestly, I love it. It allows people to express themselves and share things from their point of view and not only that, they can receive feedback from their peers who may be feeling the same way and identify with them…

So when I came across the fatmumslim Photo A Day Challenge I had to share it with you guys. It covers all media outlets and is identified universally with the #photoadayjuly hashtag. I think its a great idea that pushes you to be at least minimally creative once a day for a month…

So here we go… July 1 = Day 1! I’m going to try my best to keep up everyday, if not on here, via facebook, twitter, or instagram (vrnk1908)… Share this with your friends, follow me, and send me your best daily pics!

Looking forward to seeing how July unfolds for all of you, one photo at a time!

Enjoy.

Day 1: self portrait… My “it’s waaaaayyyyy too hot out here for football” face

Artist feature!

It may be hot outside (104,in case you were wondering) but its got nothing on the news I’ve got! I just had the incredibly awesome and super talented Richie NoDoze agree to let kravn_designs feature his music here! I’m so excited to work with him and share his talents with you guys! Keep an eye out for this, its gonna be DOPE!

Until all the details are worked out, here’s a sample of the craziness he shared with me today… Its hot as hell outside but baby, That’s Cool …This is officially my summer jam!

7 Bad Habits of Insanely Productive People

In an effort aid my “focusing”, I thought I’d share this for anyone in my boat looking for some tips/pointers/suggestions/rules to live by/habits… Figured this would be a good place to start since I already practice most of those habits… looks like I’m just not using them to my advantage! Lol

Getting Started, Getting Focused

So I decided I’d give this bird wings and see how far she soars… These are my random, scatter-brained thoughts laid out for the worlds pleasure. I’m 25 and learning and growing by leaps and bounds everyday. So far, this quarter-century marker of a year has been an amazing journey… One of the best so far. Right now I’m just trying to flesh out the rest of this trip through life. Or at least my next direction… what am I going to focus on next? Well, between working full-time, doing freelance design (hence the reason that you’re here, kravn_designs), studying for the LSAT and GRE, helping my bff launch her event planning company, supporting my family in their 50 million endeavors, AND attempting something of a social/dating life every now and then… I feel as if I’m going in circles most days. Getting dizzy and going nowhere. Other days, I’m back up on my horse, striding towards… something. Greatness? Perhaps…Haven’t quite figured out what that is yet but its definitely something more. Design has long been my outlet so I’m going to continue to use it for what it has been to me: an outlet, a window, a mirror. I dont know if this will all even make sense in the end as a cohesive body but cheers to the adventure and to seeing where we end up…

So here it is, the journey. Enjoy.
