Zero-G at Mountain Creek Action Park

Disclaimer: I do not own the photo featured above. KEEP SCROLLING DOWN TO WATCH THE VIDEO

I apologize for low quality video. I wanted to add a background music and do fancy edits but I wanted you guys to experience it as raw as possible so here it is. This was about two weeks ago. It was such a gloomy, rainy, and chilly day but my friends and I decided to stay and try to make the most out of it. There were no lines in any of the slides so I was so thrilled. I decided to go on as much water rides as I could since the no-line situation rarely happens. My excitement when I finally saw the Zero-G was off the roof! I heard about it before and saw it online and I have been wanting to try it since then. The adrenaline rush running through my body got me to the top of the water ride in less than a minute. Then I got nervous. “Should I go on it? Should I wait and try it next time we go here? But when is next time? But I’m scared. I’m nervous.” All those thoughts were running in my head as I was standing under the little umbrella. It was drizzling. My heart was about to jump out of my chest. Then I thought, if that day was my last day, with NO DOUBT, I would go on every single water ride they have  at that park, no matter how scary or high it was. It took me awhile before I finally decided to “JUST DO IT” (just like what Nike says lol). Every second of it was worth it and I would do it all over again.

Blessed with Red Light PR

Header

Hey loves! Remember when I posted my little trip to New York City last week? Well, I was there for an internship interview with Red Light PR. I am so excited to share that I got the internship!!! The showroom manager contacted me two days ago letting me know about the good news. I am so humbled by this opportunity and I cannot wait to share this experience with you.

Red Light PR in New York City is located at Broadway Avenue between 21st and 22nd Street. My interview with Erica, the showroom manager, was scheduled at 11AM. I arrived around the area at 9:50AM. I know. I was way too early. I didn’t drive at all so I wanted to make sure that I had enough time. The commute wasn’t that bad. Like I said in my previous post, I enjoyed it very much, especially going to New York City. I had my second cup of coffee that day and sat outside a nice coffee shop. Was I nervous? Not at all. I figured, I just needed to be myself. If it’s for me, then it’s for me. If I don’t get it, then I just have to try another company, another day. No reason to be upset at all.

Around 10:45AM I went in their office and I was greeted by a gentleman where he led me to the showroom. It was nice, neat, and cozy. I was greeted with smiles as I entered the door. I waited a little bit and finally met Erica. She invited two other interns during my interview to give their perspective on the internship opportunity. It was intimidating at first but I found it really helpful listening to what they have to say about the company and their experience. Overall, they made it clear to me that the internship program at RLPR is nothing like what we see on tv where interns run errands all day. Instead, it is a hands-on opportunity to learn about the company and what they do in the fashion and entertainment industry. I am up for the challenge.

I am so ready to learn more about the company, the fashion and entertainment industry, and even learn a thing or two about myself. I cannot wait to experience it all and I promise to share them with all of you.

Red Light PR is a fashion public relations firm located in New York City and LA. The firm specializes in fashion publicity, brand awareness, product placement, fashion events, and more.

New York State of Mind

wpid-wp-1434653084989.jpeg

I know I know, it’s been a while since I posted on my blog. Sorry loves! My mind has been all over the place lately dealing with so many issues you wouldn’t want to hear about. But, no worries! I’m back! 😉 I recently went to New York City to meet with someone and I just want to share my feelings about it. Not about the person, but about my city.

Technically, I am from New Jersey but my heart belongs to New York City. Most people hate the traffic, overpopulation, long walks, rude cab drivers (rude drivers), nasty subway smell, and the list goes on. Unlike most people though, I can see past all of that and appreciate its beauty and how it makes me feel.

I was able to sit down in a nice coffee shop between 22nd and 21st street on Broadway. I took a seat outside. As I was sipping my cappuccino, I put my phone down (after I took this photo, of course) and stopped listening to my NYC playlist. I listened to the traffic around me instead, listening to the city noises that most people complain about. People’s footsteps and laughters surrounded me as I sat there. It was a chilly and a gloomy day in New York City yet I felt….grateful. Grateful that even though it was about to rain and I didn’t have an umbrella on me, I was there. Alive. Breathing. I was sitting at a nice coffee shop instead of begging for food or money in a street corner. Though the city noises could be annoying, at least I could still hear them. The smelly subway could make my stomach turn, but at least I could still smell. The long walks from the train station to my destination could be really tiring, but at least I could still walk.

The beauty of New York City, at least for me, is not just about the beautiful buildings and amazing lights we witness at night. Every time I step foot in the city, I feel blessed. Walking around New York gives me the time to think and look back on all the things I’ve been through to be where I am right now. It also gives me that moment to dream and hope for the future. I may not be where I want to be at the moment, but I’m here. Alive. Breathing, writing this blog for all of you to read.

This post might be all over the place and a bit dramatic. But I guess, what I want you all to get from this is that no matter how hard life gets, no matter how much pain we feel, no matter what we’re going through, NEVER EVER GIVE UP. Be thankful for it instead. We have heard this before, “Pain demands to be felt.” Which is absolutely true. But pain also reminds us that we’re alive. Life is not just all about the beautiful and happy times that we go through. Pain, sadness, heartaches also come with it. Life happens when you overcome them.
