March 2020 – Lockdown #1

This is a draft from March 29, 2020 that I never got around to posting. It felt so good to be with my parents and have a backyard for Lu (for my dog). I came back to Seattle near the end of April. I was ready to get back to my apartment, but leaving was tough. I hiked a lot. I drank a lot of Topa Topa beer. Menudo Sundays. We’re coming up on a year in a pandemic and things still feel the same politically. Blessings that people in Seattle wear masks.

Episode 5: Cotton Gives People Split Ends!

My absolute favorite High School Basketball and summer travel ball teammates, Ash & Lex, join me to reminisce about the many hours we spent in our early teens commuting to play travel ball; we talk about Ash’s dream of writing children’s books, societal standards of beauty, and how Ash works at night to watch over her kids during the day as they attend school virtually.

Find the lesson and let it go…

Episode 2: Alexis Crimes

Here it is, hot off the press. This episode was recorded earlier today on December 28. It features my best friend and former professional athlete Alexis Crimes. In it, we discuss the power of athleticism, being freshman starters for our High School basketball team, and Lex finding her style. This is another pandemic phone call check-in, enjoy!

Winter Break Shenanigans: I made a Podcast

Alright, well I finally did that thing I have saying I was going to do. I made a Podcast. It’s called A Little Bit of J. The first episode features my childhood friends, Emily & Haley. If you looking for something new, or merely need some audio to kill time on your walk, give it a listen! This is my first time playing with audio levels and using a plug-in microphone. Here’s to being a beginner and trying new things. A special thank you to everyone who has hyped me up this week! I might have just sat on the audio and never followed through if it wasn’t for the support from everyone. A big thank you.
