Long time no blog, but honestly I really should post more–especially considering I have some more free time. Anyways, In the last few months, I’ve:
- Gotten a new, awesome job
- Moved to Ohio for said job
- Trained and completed a marathon
- Turned 25
I could recap all of those, but hey, might as well move forward and not dig too far back. Anyways, to celebrate my 25th birthday I went to FunFunFunFest in Austin, TX and got to see one of my best friends, hear some of my favorite artists, and devour some of the best Tex-Mex this country has to offer (although I’ll say, my favorite Mexican torta still resides in Columbus). Not pictured: a beautiful run around the Colorado River, Texas’s football victory over ranked West Virginia, and even more food.
Here are the photos. I think I’ll start taking more of these.
Pursuant to my last post, here are some of the panoramic photos I took while I was in Taiwan. Click to enlarge, then click again to see them in their full glory:

It’s actually been one of my longest goals to go back to Taiwan. The last time I’d been to the island was when I was 2; and, needless to say, I don’t remember anything from the trip! Unfortunately, with school, a lack of breaks, expenses, and work (in that order) it wasn’t a possibility to return for the longest time. Thankfully, the stars all aligned this past October and, two $1,400 tickets later, my mom and I were jetset across the Pacific for ten days in Taiwan. I took over 1400 pictures during the trip, but I’ll trim to down to the more interesting snapshots.
