It’s been a week now since my 21st birthday, and I have to say, I’ve learned somethings. Things they don’t tell you that you feel. I feel…things. Here’s a list of what I’ve learned so far.
1. Beer is GROSS
Surely not ALL beer is gross. But I’ve never been that person who downs an entire beer then says, “WOOOOO MORE! BEER! YA!” If anyone actually even says that…It tastes like straight up booty butt. What is booty butt? You ask? It’s something gross. Uh, yeah.
2.Wine Taste Like Cherry Cough Syrup
(I HATE CHERRIES!!!) LOL Ok, Story time. When I was little, my dad used to give us this cherry cough medicine when we’d get sick. It was so gross, it actually SCARRED me for life. I know, first world probz. ANDDD TV shows have led me to believe that wine is sophisticated and sexy. What’s sexy about it, if I’m making this face while drinking it?!
3. BOYZ BUY DRINKS FOR YOU?!
Weird. I thought a boy’s way of flirting was making a singing vine for you then making a double chin face at the end…BUT THIS IS COOL TOO. While I was in Tempe, (ASU college land) I was meeting some of my mom’s co-workers at a hotel. YES, I WAS WITH MY MOM, BUT HEAR ME OUT FIRST!!! Ok, I can’t come back from that. But basically, the bartender heard I turned 21m and whipped out this Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle drink for me. I hardly think he was flirting. But if he was,
4. Parents Look At You Differently
It’s all fun and games till you hit 21. The first thing my parents told me was, “okay…you’re 21 now! Officially a grown up!” Grown..u..p? Grown up? I’m grown up. Grown up I am. I can’t live with my parents 4evr?!!?! Okay, I get it…time to get my “ish” together!
5. I feel FREE!
No more age restrictions! No more, “Can I see your ID? Sorry, you’re not old enough.” “Come out with us!! Oh wait, you’re not 21 yet? Sorry…” “21 and OVER ONLY!!” FINALLY! I feel like I’ve finally be let out of this tower called, “Underaged”. 😀
Hey guys! I just got back from NYC, and it was probably the best trip I have ever been on. (Mind you that this is my sixth or seventh year traveling to the Big Apple.) With that, here are my top 5 fav things I did on this New York City trip.
1. NYC in Fall
Those leaves, crisp air, and pumpkin spice lattes(do u even pumpkin spice latte?! jk) I honestly LOVE FALL. Especially in NYC. Since I’m from Arizona,(where the sun’s kisses are like satan’s farts in your face.Wait, what?) it was nice wear a jacket and scarf for once. Also, look how pretty Central Park is!!!

2. Central Park’s Bubble Man (Yes, BUBBLES!)
There’s this magical man in Central Park, around Bethesda Fountain. He literally has a huge net that he dips in a bucket containing magical bubble juice. Then, he waves it around and all the lil’ children gather to pop them. These bubbles are gigantic, and they were MY bubbles. (Finding Nemo reference, anyone?)
3. Eataly’s EVERYTHING.
Oh.My.Gawt. This place is heaven. Eataly, according to the internets: “is a high-end Italian food market/mall chain which first opened in Turin, Italy, in January 2007. A New York City Eataly opened in August 2010.”
The food is heaven. The atmosphere is heaven. The coffee is heaven. Even though it’s expensive, it’ll definitely be worth your money. I just…unffff.
4. Museum of Natural History
Yeah, nuff’ said.
My favorite part of traveling is experiencing it with friends. BoiFromIpanema, Jeshua, is probably my favorite travel partner. (Also, possibly my favorite person, because well, he’s amazing) You gotta have a ride or die when you travel. Some who will drag out to get late night pizza because it’s tradition. (Thanks for that, btw!) It’s also good to have local friends who can show you around. Ever since Vine, I’ve befriended so many wonderful people. I was happy I got to meet some of them in NYC!
1. First night of meeting Vine friends.
2. Second night meeting Vine friends.(Us in Action!)
3. My beautiful cousin Christina!
4. BoiFromIpanema, my favorite travel partner<3
Overall, I always have SO much fun whenever I go to New York. If you’re planning on a vacation, I recommend this wonderful place. Bring comfortable shoes though. (Btw, Thank you Justice, for letting me borrow your winter clothes and boots. <3) I <3 New York. Every time I come back, I always feel like the possibles are endless. I feel so inspired to kick up my career, and to some day reside in the big city. Until next time, New York!
QUESTION: What are YOUR travel favorites?
Hey guys! Happy SUMMMMAH! Here’s a yummy popsicle treat for your summer festivities (like the 4th of July…….) I LOVE Starbucks Refreshers. When I saw they had these babies out, I had to have them. But honestly, they didn’t taste like the original! I had a box full, and they weren’t cheap- I needed to find a way to make the best of them. Why not make them into popsicles?! My mom and I took a trip to Ikea and found these Ice Pop Makers. Leggo!
DIFFICULTY LEVEL= Your 8 year old cousin could make these with her eyes closed while twerking to Justin Bieber.
The molds come like this! I found that the best way is to mix a little bit of water and powder in a cup. The more powder the better! Otherwise it’ll start to taste like water by the 3rd lick. I know, super tricky! :p I left these in while I ran some errands, but if you’re in a hurry, they’ll freeze in a hour. (depending on how cold your freezer is…I don’t know yo lyf!)
Check out this video from NYC’s pride rally! Lady Gaga brings DOWN the house with her amazing vocals. Doesn’t matter if you like her or not, her vocals are on point in this video. This is a performance that is truly coming from the heart and soul. I LOVE seeing people sing like this. Pure, and completely natural. No tricks, or enhancements. Love is love peeps! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
Listen, I understand. It’s summer! The beach (if you have one)! No School! Friends! Junk Food!
Here are MY 5 signs that you may need a summer job or a real world hobby. (TOTALLY not based on my own experience)
WAKE UP, SLEEPING BOOTY! Mmm…Comfy bed…Not so comfy when that morning becomes afternoon. Plus, HALF your day is gone. This is a big one for me. I LOOOVE sleeping. But I’ve noticed that it just doesn’t feel good anymore…I always miss breakfast :/
Here’s an article about Oversleeping side effects.
2. Too Much Internets
Recognize this fellow? That’s what YOU look like when you spend too much time watching Dr. Phil episodes on the weird part of YouTube. Pretty soon you are going to be like this gentleman and need a Forever Comfy (Nothing wrong with those…I bought my mom one for Christmas..love you mom.) I know it’s hot, but go outside! Go make that thing you just pinned on Pinterest.
Here are some tips to beat the boredom of summer. Here’s another from Buzzfeed.
3. No Moneys
Here’s a sensitive topic. Money. Are you borrowing money from your parents? Brother? Grandma? (What? uh me either………..) Getting a summer job isn’t as bad as it seems. I know human interaction daily is constant struggle, but it could actually be good for you. You meet new people, get some cash, get active, and you’re busy! Ain’t nobody got time to tell you you’re lazy now! HAHA! GOTCHA! Unless you are lazy at your job…don’t be lazy!!
Here’s an article on how being busy could make you happy!
4. Depression & Self Loathing
Many people struggle with this and think it’s a permanent thing. It’s totes not! Stop crying about what you don’t have, and start being thankful for what you DO! Life is a beautiful thing and it’s what YOU make it. Doing nothing and ugly crying is not going to make your life better. You have the power be happy! If you’re considered about your looks, go jogging! Be busy and active! You’ll be so busy you won’t even have time to think about why that guy doesn’t like you….(brb gonna go cry) hahhaa. Just kidding! 🙂
Here’s 12 secrets of being happy!
5. Candy Crush is Your Hobby
Cheers! Here’s to a happy summer!
