Scruff’s Top 5

This past week was a busy one for me, I had to prepare for a wedding, the radio show, and prepare to travel home to New York City for my holiday vacation. I had a few days of fun with a concert on Thursday, and a visitor on Friday. Overall I would say sleep was on the bottom of my to do list, and getting everything done in an orderly fashion was my main objective. Some things got finished early, other’s right at the nick of time, but now I can relax. 

Thursday night I drove up to the Twin Cities for a Brother Ali show, this was the fourth time I had tried to see this artist. Every time I have gone to his show something always happens, whether its going late to the show, lightning at an outdoor venue or something. This time was no different, I went to the show and while I was there I started to feel sick, and sure enough I had to leave the show. I feel like there is a curse between the artist and I after so many tries. I tell you what I will def purchase tickets to the next show of his that I can. I’m just grateful for my friend, who had a warm apartment, and a nice couch for me to sleep on. 

Friday I had a visitor come up from Des Moines, She is a teacher that I met at a concert, changing the lives of the next generation. We made lasagna, watched movies, and enjoyed each other’s company. I look forward to the next time we are able to get together. Before she came to visit I went to the radio station and submitted Saturday’s show. I’m super happy with the mix that I came up with, I’m currently working on the 2 year anniversary of Sheldon’s Dance Experiment, I’m thankful for the opportunity to be on the air and I plan on making that episode something really special. 

Saturday I was back in Orange City at Prairie Winds Event Center for a wedding. It’s always fun capturing the moments that matter the most in the lives of others. I was extremely excited because I had done a wedding for this family before. I feel completely honored when asked to return for a siblings wedding, or another family member. This ensures that I am doing my job correctly, it also makes the event that much more personal to me, it’s like I got an invitation to the event as well, not just hired. After the wedding I packed up my bags and made my way to Omaha for a house party, and my flight to NYC.

I’m looking forward to spending time here with friends and family, enjoying the city in all of it’s glory. Most importantly i’m looking forward to taking the week to relax and rest my body. The city is where I grew up, it’s home, it’s my adventure away from adventure, it’s my safe zone. While here i’ll visit some museums and art exhibits, enjoy the city as an adult.  I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving no matter where it is. Be thankful for everything you have, it can be gone in an instant.

See you on the dance floor!
