Single New York Valentines day!

Chocolate_0Valentine’s day is approaching us, for some of us its a dreaded day, others its the one chance to find there love or to express there love to someone.  So I have a couple suggestions that I came across for singles this year in NYC, because I know how hard it can be to find the best thing to do in such a big city!

  1. Katch Astoria was voted one of the “Best singles spots” in queens. They are hosting a “Nuts and bolts” Valentine’s Day singles party for those trying to meet someone. Everyone will receive half of two-piece nuts and bolts set upon entry and will be challenged to find its match to win a special prize!
  2. For those of you who are trying to just forget completely that Valentine’s Day exists, which I know there are a lot of you because my friends are most of them. However, there is a sweet celebration all month at the City Bakery Hot Chocolate Festival. 3W 18th st, Flatiron
  3. Another way to meet someone is going to the Valentine’s Day salsa Class at Alvin Ailey Dance in Midtown where couples will be encouraged to rotate and try new partners!
  4. Lastly, for those who are just not about Valentine’s Day at all because we all have that one person that made us not like it anymore… There is the “Rejection Show: Valentine’s Day Heart break Haven”. Which is a comedy show at 8pm on the 14th at 14th 622 Degraw st in Gowanus.

Enjoy your day! Id love to hear what you plan on doing!

How to work when your tired

Hey everyone!

So I don’t know about your but there are already some days where I am to tired to accomplish anything. I work three jobs and take 8 classes, it is a lot but it can be done with a few easy tips

Make a list of things you want to accomplish. Make sure you have a clear goal of what you want to do with your day. Regardless if its go to work, make a snack, go to the gym, do one blog post , whatever it is have a set plan to get it all done.

Drink a lot of water. Most people don’t drink that much water when they are tired they end up drinking coffee, which will wake you up for a little but then you will crash and feel worse then before. When you drink water it helps hydrate you leaving you more energized.

Get Rid of distractions. Turn your phone off for an hour or two, don’t go on Facebook, and don’t do my worst habit of watching Netflix while trying to get work done. Go to Starbucks or the library somewhere with limited distractions.

Go to the gym, or just move around. When you start to move around it helps increase your energy. When your sitting in the same spot for to long it makes you sleepy leaving you with even less energy then before. Try to walk around for 5 minutes every 45 minutes it will make a huge difference.

Lastly I know its hard to do but try to get enough sleep at night an odd number of hours of sleep is better then even. So its better to take a snap for 3 hours instead of 2. To sleep 7 hours instead of 8. You tend to be in a deeper slumber in even numbers( I know which is weird). I know I have been extremely tired lately and all of these things have helped increase my productiveness.

Only a week away

So this semester is the first time I will be taking all my classes online , all 8 of them. Although I have taken many classes online before I usually have one or two that I am at school for. I currently have two jobs and will be going to school full time, as well as commuting almost an hour and twenty minutes to Trenton for my internship. I am going to be honest I am pretty nervous, its a lot to take on. I have taken on more in the past but this internship could really be my job right out of college and I would love to work there. So I want to give it my full attention and dedication.

Throughout my years at FIT I learned how to become a very organized multitasker, you could give me 10 projects and tell me to finish them in a week, I may not sleep but you will have all of them by that deadline if not sooner. FIT instills in you to be driven and a hard worker, because being a student here isn’t what everyone thinks. Whenever I mention I go to school at FIT they always assume that I go for fashion and that’s so easy I must barely go to classes, and I sit around in the city like Carrie Bradshaw on the weekends. But my life at FIT has been far from that, extremely amazing, but I haven’t gotten to this point with slacking off. I worked hard everyday, studied, barely slept, and had actual jobs and internships while doing it, sometimes all at the same time. I have had very little downtime to hang out with my friends or do typical college student things but that was my choice and I think when you decide FIT is the college for you, you know that your going to work just as hard if not harder then any of your friends.

College is what you make of it, and regardless if your a freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior, you will find what drives you to make your future brighter.

Good Luck this semester,

Moving on up..

Hi everyone,

So already being a week into the new year my life has been crazy busy. Between new jobs, New Years resolutions and my social life. One of my resolutions was to travel and see more things.

IMG_1644So I tried a new restaurant called EL Escondido in freehold, with the best food I have ever tried. I had a tropical enchilada with mangos, chicken, cheese, peppers.

But today is the best part. I interviewed for a new company which I have been dying to work for, and not even thirty minutes after my interview they called me… I GOT IT. I will only be an intern but I can really see myself working for them long term. I have honestly never been more excited to work for a company. Overall 2016 looks like its going to be a great year so far! How is yours going?

Holidays

Hey Everyone,

As the holidays quickly surpass us one more year, I thought I would tell you a little about mine. For me Holidays mean spending time with friends and family I don’t really get to see. Christmas Eve I was able to spend some quality time with some amazing friends. We had prime rib and huge king crab legs that were the size of me, and even more delicious food that you can imagine. I watched my first Raider game and learned about football, which secretly I still know nothing about I was too busy eating dessert. Then on Christmas I spent more time with friends and family. I first had brunch at my house with my brother, mom, and dad. My mom made waffles and bacon and we had fruits and cookies, it was so perfect. Then we opened presents, I received tons of Kate spade stuff ( but I mean common did you expect anything else from me ) and books this year. I asked for so many books which is so hard now because I don’t know what to read first because they are all so good! So one day I start one then I start another and I go back and forth till I finish them. Then we spent the rest of the day at my grandmas and my friends. We laughed like crazy and ate more then any of us could fit. My cousin Justine got this pie game from one of my other cousins. So we tried to sit at the table and play roulette with this game and see who gets whip cream in the face but no one was truly willing to sit there. It was one of the best holidays I ever had. I barely ever get to spend time with all my family like that and to be all together made me extremely happy.

Happy New Year,
