Thank you, everyone, for…

nyc-subway

Uptown? Downtown? Local vs. Express? All phrases one may be unfamiliar with not being originally from or residing in NYC.  While there are many forms of transportation to get around the subway is like the veins of the city. Since moving here I would say the MTA is mostly reliable. However, if you were to ask the 5.6+ million people who ride the trains daily I’m sure they would agree that each trip is like a never-ending guessing game of making…

Long time no see! It’s been a crazy few weeks since my last post but I’ve finally accomplished my goal of moving to New York.  Honestly, even though I’ve been here for a little over half a month it still feels so surreal.  If you follow me on Instagram/Facebook you know getting here involved many flights back & forth for various interviews and then packing up everything in a week once landing the role I’m in now. Why the move?…

“If a window of opportunity appears, don’t pull down the shade.”  – Tom Peters A few weeks ago, the company I was with dissolved and I was laid off for the first time ever in my career.  While devastating & stress-inducing for most I felt like this was the perfect opportunity to achieve my next goal. I know you’re probably sitting here like what do you mean?  You’ve literally lost your major source of income and possibly a part of your mind!…

As he grew older and longer (30 in. from head to tail)…

From the rich history, culture, and cuisine this magical city has stolen a piece of my heart. Where to Stay If you love being in the midst of the party opt for being in the French Quarter.
