Peyton Manning began his football career at the University of Tennessee and led the Volunteers to win the SEC championship in 1997. If you have been in Nashville for any amount of time you can tell that a lot of the city of Nashville bleeds Orange during college football season and thus Peyton Manning is very near and dear to the hearts of UT Fans. I ran across this shirt online and thought it was dope. More about Peyton, Superbowl 50, and Project 615 who made the tee…

The Bonnaroo Festival lineup for 2016 has been announced. I’ve never been to Bonnaroo before but I’ve heard the stories about the bag of showers and the camping outside. I’m sure it’s a memorable time, I just can’t stand the bare conditions of an outdoor all-day concert….

Now it all makes sense! Nashville built the outdoor ice skating rink and opened it in December, and the 2016 NHL All Star Weekend is here in Nashville January 28-31 2016. The weekend is full of festivities and events celebrating hockey. If you have never been to a Preds game, I would highly recommend. The games are engaging, the Nashville Preds fans are electric, and the Preds play hard the entire game. But back to NHL All Star Weekend.

Nashville Restaurant Week is a week when certain local Nashville restaurants provide an abbreviated sampler menu showcasing the restaurants ‘ culinary skills.

My friends know I am a music head and recently I was introduced to an Atlanta artist named Leon Bridges. Whew when you listen to this man croon (that’s the only way to describe it) you are going to feel like you have taken a step back into the 60s — think Sam Cooke.
It was December 23rd, and a friend of mine decided to take me to a bar to have a drink. Interestingly enough it was one of the few places I have not been to before and was excited to partake on the adventure.
On 12/9 I was privy to a Networking Event hosted by Stay-On-The-Go at Salsa restaurant. I am working more on networking so I decided to attend the event. I am learning that the best work is network and I am working to continue to expand my network in my quest for purpose and understanding.
Over the holiday’s my aunt was remarking about a Jazz Festival that would be happening next summer. I had not heard about it so I did some research….
Today was a wonderful day. Don’t you like those types of days, when you have plans, but your plans change and the day still turns out great? What I planned to do doesn’t matter. What matters is that I ended up at Bridgestone to watch MTSU vs. Auburn men’s basketball. It was a great game; close score that ended up in overtime. The final score was MTSU 88 and Auburn 81. I am so proud to be MTSU alumni.
