What will she remember?
No ones for sure I guess.
But there are somethings I know deep down,
And I’m certain of this, more than less.

Blog Talk Radio: Talkupy Interview with Marisa Langford (Truck Farm Tampa + Fit Kids Playground)

No Comments Professional, Tampa Bay

Marisa Langford Truck Farm Tampa

People always ask me what I do. Yes, if you know me, you probally already know that I am busy. But that’s just me. It is in my DNA. Always has been.

About 1 year ago, I was able to do an interview on Talkupy Radio on Blog Talk Radio to talk about all the project that I have launched in Tampa Bay. I have listened to it several times and I think it is the best interview that I have ever done that highlights why I do what I do and what my project actually do for the community. It talks about the Fit Kids Playground project, why I started the project and what it does in Tampa Bay. We talk about the Truck Farm Project and hoe it came about and how I got involved with Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution for Tampa Bay.

This is my story. This is who I am. If you want to know what makes me tick, here is it. This is me.

5 Tips To Survive a Hospital (AKA Parent Prison) Stay With Your Child

No Comments Uncategorized

IMG_1607.JPG

For me, a hospital is very much like the only prison I will ever know. I watch a few random prison TV shows (who doesn’t) and have seen OITNB and feel like a hospital stay with kids is very similar. You have to know the tricks to survive. It keeps you away from loved ones. Some people on the “inside” can tell you the reality of how it is and what you need to do to survive. And if you make enemies, watch out. Because they will hold your freedom (discharge papers) hostage or at least tie them up in approval land and it could take much longer for you to leave.
