A wonderful LI weekend! (And 100 Days of Kindness, Day 2)

Colin and I decided to try something different this past weekend – we left really early Saturday morning to head to NY instead of going Friday evening after work. We figured if we got a good night’s sleep Friday night (we didn’t – we went to bed late) that we’d wake up at the ass crack of dawn to get to NY bright-eyed and bushy-tailed on Saturday morning. I don’t know if we were bright-eyed or bushy-tailed, but we got there early and were happy to be with my family. :)

We had a great time celebrating Kelly’s birthday together!

100 Days of Kindness, Day 2:

I definitely had nice things on my mind today. I was trying to think of new, creative things I could do for people. Even throughout some of the frustrations and overall busyness of the day I was trying to stay positive and think of all the nice things flooding my mind. I decided I need to start jotting my ‘nice ideas’ down in a notebook when I think of them, so I have some in store for these 100 days…

Today, I did two nice things. First, I promoted my friend Greg’s new song on Twitter and I decided I’m going to try to continue to promote his song moving forward. I went to middle school with Greg a long time ago and haven’t seen him in years. However, thanks to the wonders of social media (Facebook) I can still see what he (along with all the other people I haven’t seen/talked to in years) are up to. You know that’s what you use Facebook for! Big time creepin’!

Anyway, back to the point… I recently saw that Greg is pursuing a career in music. I listened to his first single on iTunes, and I have to say – it is amazing! Such a great voice and he is reeally good on guitar. He’s a nice guy who is very talented. I would love to see him succeed, so I’m going to help promote him – I’ll tweet, I’ll Facebook, you know the drill. Now, not that I have a large influence on millions of people or anything, but I just figured, any little bit can help right?

With that being said – check out Greg’s song, ‘New York City Girl’. If you love it, buy it here. I’d say he’s a mix between Jack Johnson, John Mayer, Jason Mraz with a little bit of old school classic rock thrown in. Let me know (or let Greg know on his Facebook page) what you think!

Second nice thing: After our hip hop class tonight, Meg had to pick up Lady in NH. She also had to vote, but hadn’t eaten dinner. I told her I’d make her some dinner while she went to vote so that she could be a good citizen. Then, even though I really didn’t want to  (I can say this because she’s my sister) I took a ride with her to NH to keep her company.

I’m happy to report that I think she appreciated it!
