October 1st

31 day blog challenge or something.

You know I actually write in a blog every day, but it's not this blog. I think only two people have access to the link. Anyway, I don't really like a lot of the blog challenges I see, I just want to force myself to write more often.

Most of the blog challenges start with an "intro" so here we go.

Fun Facts!

1) I have never in my life completed a blog challenge and I don't intend to start now. So, you know... prepare yourself for disappointment come day twelve

2) I can't believe I'm saying this but I actually enjoy outdoor activities more than video games these days. Give me an all day hike instead of an all day Fallout binge any day. I do particularly like that running only takes an hour or so, though.

James Boyce Park in Charlotte, good for trail runs

3) My favorite breakfast is from a gourmet grocers in Charlotte called Earl's Grocery. I like their White Lily biscuit. My preferred variation is the ham, brie, and apricot jam. I get it every single time I go there for brunch. For later in the day their pozole is on point. Trust me. I sing the praises of Earl's whenever I get a chance.
Okay they didn't have the ham/brie/jam biscuit this day, but it was still pretty good

4) My favorite pick me up treat of all time is dark chocolate and good black coffee. Earl's Grocery is also quite good at fulfilling this need, as is 7th Street Market (chocolate from Zia Pia and coffee from Not Just Coffee

5)  I like craft beer. A lot. This is just a small example
