Late Night Scribbles
Do you ever think about what you were like four years ago? On a normal basis, I can’t say I have either but after visiting my high school today and saying goodbye to a teacher who really impacted my life in the best way possible and will be retiring, I’m definitely thinking about my high school days. I ate dinner with a friend (oh hey Neha) last night and we talked about what it...
This Summer vs. Last Summer
I start working in exactly a week. A week from today I’ll be up at 7:00AM, waking up in the worst state ever (but it’s okay because I’ll proudly bleed maize and blue there). This year is already different from last year. Last year I was counting down the days from 30 and my excitement level was on a different level. This year, I’m more calm yet nervous. It’s not to...
Mad Struggles. How do you say "thank you"?
Who knew that my biggest challenge would come after finals. I’ve always been one for thank you notes. And it usually comes naturally as I sit down with a pen and a card. Everything I want to say usually makes it to the page. And after reading it over, I never feel unsatisfied. For some reason that’s not happening right now. What do you say to the person who’s retiring after...
Internships, Basketball, Elections, Social Media &...
Another year just blew past. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t happy that this school year was over. My disinterest in the topics of the classes I was in (with one exception—shout-out to Dave Mayer and MO321 for a great, great class on Leadership that I highly suggest people take) was getting out of control and I don’t ever remember feeling so aggravated about school. So once...
Sports, As It Is: Shut Up and Show Up →
Read. Now. Show up and get rewarded. Simple as that. sportsasitis: I wasn’t planning on writing anything during finals week, but the seemingly absurd backlash at the Michigan athletic department yesterday was too much to dismiss. It was announced that student tickets for Michigan football games next year will be general admission as opposed to the reserved…
It shouldn’t be this difficult to write a thank you letter. But for some reason, I’m at a loss of words because this person has done too much to influence and inspire me for me just to write, “Thank you.” We’ll see how this goes. Might be the hardest thing I’ll ever write but it must be the best.
Journey said Don't Stop Believing. So Don't.
All I remember is my jaw dropped before I scrambled to find my phone and called my mom. “Mom? I’m going to Atlanta next weekend.” It had taken me less than a minute after the final buzzer of the Elite Eight game between Florida and my Michigan Wolverines to make that decision and make that phone call. If you had told me in January that I’d get to see Michigan Basketball...

VOTE youMICH: PROPPE&BOBBY for CSG!
IT’S OFFICIAL: I AM ONE STEP CLOSER TO MY DREAM OF MICHAEL PROPPE BEING PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES COMING TRUE!!!!!!! Had to make this tumblr official because in all seriousness I am SO happy and excited that my buddy Michael Proppe is running for president of University of Michigan CSG with youMICH. This usually isn’t my thing to get involved with student government elections but...
Keeping Cool and Keeping It Real
Interviewing and recruiting is officially over for me, and I couldn’t be happier or more relieved. I’m excited for a summer in Cincinnati because I know being with Procter & Gamble will be an incredible experience, and I worked so hard to get there. Throughout these last few months and recruiting season, I learned two things: I keep cool and I keep it real. Keeping Cool I...
The side of the football heartbreak and some thank...
Maybe it’s just a bad memory but I can’t ever remember a football game that we’ve lost with under 30 seconds remaining on the clock. As a student that is. We have been so fortunate to always be on the other side. Think Illinois 2010 where we went into triple OT just to win that crazy game. And who can forget Notre Dame 2011 where Roy Roundtree caught the game winning touchdown...
Looking back on 2012
This was by far one of the most challenging but rewarding years of my life. College doesn’t get any easier but it sure is a lot of fun with good friends, fun work, and not witnessing a loss of either Michigan Football or Basketball at home! 2012 was a great year and I hope that I can either learn from or build off of everything that happened this year to me. When it comes to school, I still...
We complain about how stressful finals are. We complain about a bad grade. We complain about how it’s raining outside. And we complain that it is cold. Yes, those all can be warranted some of the time but we continuously complain about these things. But with what has happened in Connecticut and a few other events this weekend, I can’t continue to complain. The things I complain about...
A Belated Thank You
Another year has passed and I’m sitting here in awe at how it just keeps getting better and better. I’m still full from dinner, healthy, very happy and shopped-out from early bird specials at Black Friday. I do apologize for this being late but yesterday was a bit of a busy day. And so, to not delay it anymore, here is what I’m thankful for: The University of Michigan. Yes,...
From Receiver to Giver: #Advice
Junior year has now come into full swing. It has come with finally getting to take classes I’ve been waiting for since first day of freshmen year, the reuniting of some very peppy and hilarious Michigan interns, new work and a ridiculous amount of studying. I am doing my best not to blurt out to my marketing professor out of the blue one day about how madly in love I am with his personality…...
Summer Ending: Junior Year at Michigan
It is so strange to think that I’m headed into my junior year of college in the next few days. When did this all happen? I was just looking at pictures a few days ago of when my friends and I were off to our very first Michigan Football game as freshmen. Not knowing where exactly the Big House was by foot. Not knowing where our section was. Not knowing any of the student section chants. Not...
Week Ten & Eleven at Under Armour (July 30 to Aug...
It was a very strange feeling when August came around. Throughout this entire process, it has been “Oh, August 10th is our last day. That’s so far away from now!” But right now, as I type this, it is August 9th, 2012. And by this time tomorrow, my internship will be over. It’s a bittersweet thought because I’m so excited to go home. I’m excited to see my friends and family, get back to the Big...
Week Eight & Nine with Under Armour (July 16-July...
It’s been a crazy few weeks and so I apologize for not posting anything sooner. From the Summer League Sample Sale to Tottenham Hotspur, it seems these last few weeks have just flown by. Actually this whole summer has flown by. I mean…it’s August. Where did July go!? I guess writing this post will remind me exactly what we did in July. So here we go. Week 8: After coming home...
Week Six and Seven with Under Armour (All-Star...
Just got back to Baltimore from an exciting few days in Kansas City for the All-Star Game! I’ve decided to combine both week 6 and 7 as they overlapped. I was told by multiple people before I went to KC that it was one of the most underrated cities in the USA. And I completely agree now. It’s one of the smaller cities I’ve been to but there’s a lot to do, it’s a lot...
Week Five with Under Armour (June 25-30)
Halfway already? It’s the halfway mark. Week five of our 10 week internship. WHAT!? Here are some of the highlights of this week. June 25 The perks of going to a big university like the University of Michigan is that there are Wolverines EVERYWHERE. We have the largest living alumni base in the world. So it only makes sense that a few people at Under Armour are Michigan alumni! Two of them...

Week Four with Under Armour (June 17-22)
Opportunities are really endless at Under Armour. This was an even crazier week than it usually is at UA! A launch, some traveling and overall learning as much as I possibly can..I’d say overall it has been a more than successful week. Here are just some of the highlights of yet another incredible week here. June 20 So June 20 was the launch of SPINE, an incredible new footwear technology...
Week Three with Under Armour (June 11-17)
What a week it has been! Already the end of week 3!? Insane. Once again, everything is always cool at Under Armour but this week was even more special. This week, Baltimore pretty much was one big celebration…a Sailabration! Ships from around the world came to the harbor for the bicentennial celebration of the War of 1812 and the Star Spangled Banner anniversary. And Under Armour got to be...
Week Two with Under Armour (June 3-10)
Time moves so much faster when you’re working for Under Armour. But at the same time, it feels like I’ve been working here forever (in a good way!). There’s never lack of work to do, there’s always something going on and I’ve found that I’m never lacking new ideas. This week, we celebrated a birthday (Happy belated, Jimmy!), had some fun with the other...
Week One with Under Armour (May 29-June 1)
What a whirlwind of a week! For all those who know me, you know that I go to sleep very late…and I mean VERY late to the point of past 2am. I am proud to say that I was so wiped out this week that I was in bed by midnight every night, with only one night with a struggle to sleep. Anyway, I’ve gotten to meet so many of the other interns, especially those who are staying in the apartment...
Take. More. Pictures.
Today's the Day!
Insert scream here. Just kidding but not really. Way too excited. Slept decently. Luckily the flight is super short so waiting to get to Charm City shouldn’t take that long. I’ll instagram when I get there (obviously). Aw come on. Just hearing the rain coming down on my roof. Better not mean any delays for my flight. Till noon, you all should text me :). Boredom is not how I want to go...
It’s crazy. I’ve been waiting for tomorrow for almost four months. When I started the Under Armour Ultimate Intern competition, I honestly kept thinking how amazing it would be to spend a summer in Baltimore. And tomorrow, I get to do just that. It’s fun to think about how much work went into this too. Running around Disney like a crazy person taking pictures with random...
My Website! →
I usually leave this link only as a link on my resume but now I think I’ll leave it public. So enjoy this and I like feedback! :)
Thank you to my teachers.
I’ve always thought myself lucky to have formed really really good relationships with my high school teachers. To the point where I’m still very well-connected with many of them, update them with my life and I visit the high school every time I’m home. I have some awesome role models in them. From opening doors for me, to making me love subjects I thought I never would, to even...

I was talking to my dad yesterday about where some of my friends were going this summer or things some of my friends had accomplished this year. And I found myself not being able to slow down because there were just so many cool things that my friends were doing. I think the picture above is true…in a sense. I think some people can interpret it wrongly by saying that you should just...
