Book Club and Steve Jobs

As I type this blog post out on my Macbook, I’m thinking of all the ways this man that I’ve never met has made my life so much easier. Having iTunes and my iPod to select music, make playlists and transport my music from gym to gym. Having this awesome computer that has never once, in over 4 years, acted up. Having my iPhone with all these insane apps that makes it effortless to run my business and travel all over the world without a single worry of missing an email, getting lost in random city, missing my connecting flight info, or making a purchase, all with the touch of a screen in my hand. I can’t imagine what it must have been like to know and interact with Steve Jobs, but it must have been insane. I have the utmost respect for anybody that has a vision (no matter how crazy it may be) and MAKING IT A REALITY. He’s done this more than anybody I’m aware of in the past couple of decades. Kudos, Mr. Jobs.

Job well done.
Moving on:
Book Club, September book,
The Hunger Games!
If you would have told me that I was going to read a futuristic/sci-fi/government conspiracy GUY book and absolutely love it, I would have told you that were straight trippin’. But it’s true. I did.I actually read all three books in the trilogy. In two weeks. Who am I?
So, Blogger Book Club members: Who actually read it? Who read all three books? Who now can’t effing wait for the movies?! Although I’m thinking they’re going to be a bit violent and I’ll have to not watch some of those scenes… I’m so glad I heard about these books once all three were out. Same with Twilight. I would have hated ending one book, having those HUGE cliffhangers, then having to wait another year for the next one to be released. Too bad I’ll have to do that with the movies.
Pumped about the movie.
Not pumped that this kid is playing Peeta.
What?! I mean, I’m totally for this guy in the movie… maybe as a tribute? And he’s from Kentucky, so I support him even more for representing… I just don’t see him as Peeta. What do you think?
But YAY for Jennifer Lawrence.
I think she’s a great Katniss.
AND she’s from the ‘Ville as well.
There’s just something about those peeps from KY…
They’re just so cool.
; )
OK. Thoughts on the book.
And suggestions for October’s book.

October-November Travel

South Carolina was SO pretty! I wish I’d had more time to spend wandering around, but I was pretty beat from waking up at 4am, flying, then teaching 8 hours of TRX. Hopefully next time I’ll get to stay a bit longer… and maybe Ashley will be there to show me around! : )
So I got my travel schedule for the next two months… this is all mostly work, but I’m really excited to make the most out of each of these trips:
South Carolina
(I know I already went, but it still counts. Hush.)

Northern, KY
New York City, NY
Bangkok, Phuket, and Krabi Thailand

Chicago, IL

Grand Bahama Island
for fun,
not work.
I think it’ll be a good couple of months…
Now if I can just remember to take some photos.

TRX Travel: South Carolina

South Carolina! C’mon and raise up! Take your shirt off, twist it ’round your head, spin it like a helicopta! OK, I know the lyrics are for North Carolina, but it works here too. Plus it’s 4:30 a.m. Don’t blame me for being delirious…

A 5:20 a.m. flight sounded WAY better when I booked it…
right now, not so much.
Oh well. Hope you guys are enjoying your Saturday morning. I’ll be back tomorrow!
