Today was my last day in Denver. Tomorrow I will be heading to Tahoe to start another chapter. I couldn’t be more excited. Denver has been amazing. I have met a ton of good friends and had some memorable times, but I am looking forward to being back in the mountains, by the lake and working on new projects.
It was a bittersweet day. I hate saying goodbye, especially to friends I am used to seeing everyday, but luckily for me I am able to travel a lot and can hopefully see them sooner than later. I obviously did a ton of packing today, but Heather, Zach, Jack and I also had a final dinner at Sushi Hai. Normally this would just be another dinner and I wouldn’t consider it “Awesome” by 30 Days standards, but since we were all there because I am leaving and it will be a little while before we’re all together again, the night was definitely Awesome and I’m counting it. Already missing these peeps. Tomorrow…the adventure begins with Katie out to Tahoe. Yip! —TS
Tonight Heather and I ventured out to get Awesome together. We both had different things planned, but hit the streets of D-Town for the 20th day of Awesome! Both of our ideas fell through, but that didn’t stop us from winging it. As we wandered the streets aimlessly, we came across an underground comedy club/cabaret and decided to check it out. We snuck right in and stood in the back and caught the tail end of the show. Awesome indeed.
Next we stumbled upon another Awesome. Random statues. Come to realize there are many around Denver and we thought it best to take photos with them. Why not? Lastly, we came across two drunk dudes sitting on the corner of Larimer texting and simply chillin’ on the sidewalk. We approached them and decided to hang out for a bit. All in all another Awesome night in Denver. One more night then I’m off the Tahoe! —TS
I’m in the midst of packing up my life and moving back to Tahoe. I’ve moved at least once a year since I’ve been out of high school pretty much so I’m pretty much pro at this point, but it’s still a major pain in the ass. I wanted to share a few Awesome (and kind of crazy) things I found while packing. Wish me luck! —TS
I’ve wanted to see Red Bull Illume live for quite some time. Yesterday, for the first day of Awesome, I went to the Illume showcase in Downtown Denver. It just so happened to be going on for a week during 30 Days, which worked out perfectly if I must say. If you haven’t heard or seen photos of Illume it is a photography display, showcasing 50 large light boxed action sports photographs, from around the globe. The photos were chosen out of more than 22,000 images in a contest Red Bull has put on for the past few years.
Being a huge fan of action sports, seeing the images lit up is truly captivating and inspiring. If you haven’t had a chance to see the show live, check out the site for a stop near you. It is free and definitely worth your time. Big ups to Red Bull and all the photographers and athletes. My photos are dope, but don’t even do the work and the live showing justice. Truly Awesome. —TS
Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the lovely ladies did on their first day of Awesome at 30DaysofAwesome.com Peaces pumpkins.
When I was in 2nd or 3rd grade, I cried until my parents bought a fake Christmas tree. We also had a can crusher that I used to happily flatten our aluminum cans so we could take them to recycle. And wherever I could I would ride my bike so I wouldn’t create carbon emissions (although I wasn’t even close to driving age). Needless to say doing my part for the environment has been ingrained in me since an early age.
Tomorrow is Earth Day. Although I wish I could participate in the many activities including parades and festivals that Denver has going on, I’ll be up in the mountains being one with nature and cheersing with a lovely mojito complete with mint and lime…in a glass that can be washed and reused of course. I wanted to post a little something to remind my darling readers how important Mother Earth is. Better yet, it’s a reminder for myself. Take five minutes a day to stop and breathe and take in the natural beauty that surrounds you. And while you may not want to give up your real Christmas tree or crush cans in your spare time, just be a little more cautious of your impact on the environment. Happy Earth Day. —TS
