The Bug

By JAMIE MASSENGALE,

Do you have the bug? In recent years, the sport of tennis has taken over my life.

I’m spending a lot more time on the courts and enjoying playing tennis all year-round.

When I was growing up, I never really played tennis. I was more into soccer.




College!?!

By JAMIE MASSENGALE,

Time keeps on slippin’ slippin’ slippin into the future. -– “Fly Like An Eagle” by Steve Miller Band

Well, I did it. I finally graduated from college with a bachelor’s degree. Sure, it took me a little longer than I planned, but I made it. And I made a lot of great friends along the way.





First-ever trip to Austin and first-ever SXSW experience was mind blowing

By JAMIE MASSENGALE,

As I walked into the lobby of the hotel, I passed this group of guys and thought, “these must be musicians.” 

Then it hit me. 

It was CeeLo Green – singer, produer, guest judge of The Voice and one-half of the Grammy Award winning soul duo Gnarls Barkley.

The past few weeks have been a blur. 




Making Groceries

By JAMIE MASSENGALE,

I’m a big fan of grocery stores. When I was growing up in Meridian, my mom would take my brother and me shopping on a regular basis. 

Now, when I visit my mother in Tennessee, I am always eager to go shop with her at the Kroger, Fresh Market, or Whole Foods. 




Ready Player One

By JAMIE MASSENGALE,

In a dark room, there is a child playing video games. The glow from the screen reflects from his face as he moves his character across the screen. His eyes beam like giant orbs of light when his character achieves the goal. The game's music echoes through his ears, carving its way into his memory.
