Last week I invited one of my best friends, Macie Berlin, to do a guest blog and share some stories about me.
If you haven't read last week's blog, aka Part one of "The Inside Scoop on Jesse Brisendine" you are going to want to read that first before you read today's. Click here to read it.
Before I get to part 2, can I first say how much I love Macie's writing. Over the course of our friendship I have gotten to read a lot of Macie's writings and each time I am amazed by the talent she has for it. She has a way of capturing moments/memories and putting the emotion and feelings right back into them.
Anyways, I know you are eagerly waiting for part two, before I get to that just a quick reminder that beginning tomorrow, Monday January 26th, enrollment will open up for the Six Weeks to Your Greatest You program. I'll only be taking 20 people for this one of a kind experience. Claim your spot quick because this program will sell out. I will be sending an email out on Monday as well as posting it to Facebook on the 1 Year 1000 Challenge page.
Ok, onto Maice:
Next week's blog: Jesse's weird habits, Haiti, more grief, and who he is today
Macie is your average Feminist Studies and Exercise and Sports Science major from UCSB. By average, she means she's a walking contradiction. She loves all things sports and competition, and she is also a passionate philanthropist and activist. Most important, she is a nerd at heart. Macie coaches and runs character development programs from high school girls soccer players, and she continuously pursues her favorite activity - writing. Macie's various, but important passions include her non-profit organization, H.E.E.A.L. (Hope through Exercise, Energy, and Art for Life), which serves to fund other organizations who promote and provide exercise and art outlets (www.heealsb.org). They also include her podcast, Dropping the F Bomb (www.droppingthefbomb.org), which delves into modern-day feminism with a little bit of an attitude, and her blog, Lifestyle of the Torn and Triad, which follows her journey through her 3rd knee surgery in her 20s (http://lifestyleofthetornandtriad.weebly.com/blog). Macie will also be starting as a contributor for Elite Daily (www.elitedaily.com).
There is something both scary and freeing about having someone so close to you write about you. I don't think I would let anyone do this other than Macie. I trust her and I am thankful for that trust as allowing her to do this has been a trip down memory lane for me. It has allowed me to relive some amazing memories and process experiences in the past from the present perspective. I hope you all are enjoying Macie's stories as much as I am.
I have attached a few more photos of Macie and I.
Enjoy the photos,
