Shit I Did This Summer

As far as people who read this blog can tell I died at the end of May because I promised to post a recap every month and then I sort of forgot and now it’s September so I’m sorry if you thought I was dead but also I’ve posted plenty of shit on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Periscope over the past three months so if you were worried I was dead you could have verified pretty easily that I wasn’t if you really cared. Jerk.

Shit that happened over the past three months:

  • I wrote a column for Quorum magazine about why I spent two years volunteering on the marketing committee for the 2015 Gay Softball World Series
  • We expanded Drink Up Columbus into a new city: Drink Up Cincinnati. That’s right ladies and gentlemen, Drink Up is taking over the world, one mid-sized city beer-based blog at a time
  • Speaking of Drink Up Columbus I wrote, like, a lot of article there over the summer and you can find ’em all right here
  • I joined the board for The Literacy Project, and we are hosting a Scrabble tournament next week called Letters for Literacy which I’m also MC’ing. Sign up here! Thanks to Good Day Columbus for having me on this morning to promote
  • The Literacy Project is also hosting monthly happy hour fundraisers dubbed Libations for Literacy, and the next is October 28
  • Improv troup Hashtag Comedy is kicking off a weekly news show (think Daily Show and Weekend Update) and I’m going to be their first guest on September 13 at Shadowbox Live
  • The fine folks from Geeks Podcast interviewed me about the Beers and Board Games Club
  • Speaking of Beers and Board Games, we’re hosting a 24-hour gaming marathon in November to raise money for Nationwide Children’s Hospital. You can learn more about the event here and donate to my team here – even $5 would be a big help!
  • Drink Up Columbus kicked off a monthly happy hour series in July and since I forgot to tell you about it on here you missed the first two but never fear because you can join us in September at Milestone 229
  • Visit Buffalo Niagara invited me to spend a weekend exploring their emerging craft beer scene and I swear to god I’m going to get the blog post about that up soon but in the meantime you can look at my pictures and yes Niagara Falls is awesome

    Shit I Tweeted, Facebooked, Pinned, Google Plus’d, YouFace’d or otherwise shared somewhere on the internet:

  • If tag were as complicated as German board games
  • I’m really, really, really, really good at board games
  • Fuck that, a guided meditation
  • Symphonic hip hop history
  • People get scared when you try to do something, especially when it looks like you’re succeeding. People do not get scared when you’re failing. It calms them. That’s why the show Intervention is a hit and everyone loves “worrying about” Amanda Bynes. But when you’re winning, it makes them feel like they’re losing or, worse yet, that maybe they should’ve tried to do something too, but now it’s too late. And since they didn’t, they want to stop you. You can’t let them.” – Mindy Kaling
