#6 and #80

#6 Take a Random Road Trip. So when I first made the list I intended for this to be a super long road trip to somewhere that I have never been on a whim, but that is not how exactly how it played out. A couple of nights ago my roommate, our friend/neighbor and I ended up at the Fairhope Pier at random hours of the night. I had never been to the pier in Fairhope before, and now I believe it is my new favorite spot. We had a blast jamming out, singing to the top of our lungs the whole way there and back. We also thoroughly enjoyed swinging in the sand looking out over the water to see the lights of Mobile on the other side. I complain a lot about all the things I dislike about Mobile, but it really is a beautiful place.

#80¬†Go to a Therapeutic Recreation Conference. This past week I had the great opportunity to attend the Gulf Coast Coming Together for TR conference in Hattiesburg, MS. It was a great day learning about ways to use TR with many different disabilities. We had 2 speakers come from Canada to tell us about TR there and their healthcare systems. A lady from the Shepard Center in Atlanta came to present on Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries as well as how Geocaching could be used in Rec. Therapy. The last speaker of the day presented on drum therapy, literally one of the coolest thing I have seen related to TR. Who knew drums and other instruments could be used to work on many different aspects of a person’s life. It was just a great day all the way around with my wonderful TR family. Oh, and we ate at this place called the “Thirsty Hippo”. It was an interesting place, but they had some killer burgers.

Stay tuned for more #Kelseys100things updates.
