Monday Hockey Thoughts | 2.25.19


Thoughts + Rants

Side note before we begin: I am in no way an expert at the game of ice hockey. I’ve been a fan for 9 years and have followed the Pittsburgh Penguins pretty heavily that whole time. I do not play the game nor am I familiar with a lot of players in the league. All […]

Hockey, Personal

I always get asked similar questions when I talk about my obsession with hockey: “Why hockey?” “How did a girl from Georgia get hooked on hockey?

Review | The FOMO Factory | Austin, TX


Austin

Something you need to know about me: I’m a homebody. I enjoy spending my off days at home, sitting on my couch with Stark. However, every now and then, I’ll get off the couch, put on real pants, and have some fun outside of the house. This past Saturday, Jimmy and I both left the […]
