I've Got The Looking For A Job Blues

NYC is fun, exciting and fresh. There is so much to do and definitely not enough time to do it all. First things first, I need to find a job. Well, a little more than just a job. You see, I can walk into just a store, or just a restaurant and make above minimum wage doing this job or that, but it is a lot more difficult trying to get a good job. One that doesn't have a person working for nickels. In this city, people settle for whatever they can get, which means that they often end up having to work two jobs or more just to pay the rent. And the rent is going towards a 500 sqft. studio that you share with another person...okay, it's not that bad, but it can be. City life is tough. I'm going to do my best to find a good job, really I am, but if you see me behind the counter making your sandwich, don't laugh, okay?

Please Read All The Facts-People Pass So Much Judgement And Usuaully Know Nothing

Let me get this straight: when an Israeli soldier uploads a facebook picture with Palestinian prisoners (they were arrested, keep in mind, not just captured randomly), the story makes headline news and draws international criticism. But when Palestinians chuck rocks at Israeli soldiers and civilians, bomb civilian targets, and force millions of people in southern Israel to live in terror EVERY DAY, nobody cares. There is no international outcry when a bomb falls in Ashdod, but when a soldier posts a facebook picture with prisoners, she is scolded around the world.-Mark N., Yahoo News

NYC Here I Come (Again)

My life feel's like it is a little bit crazy and a lot a bit wonderful. I have been blessed with the ability to do so many wonderful things this summer, and I have also been blessed to be some how given the time to really figure out what I want to do with my life. I am so excited for this next journey which includes moving back to NYC and heading to Spain for a month!
Nine times out of then when I talk to someone about their job they are unhappy. It makes me so sad that I don't even bring up work in conversations anymore. I think it's crazy that in our society our jobs or careers define us. I am trying to break that mold and really just be defined by my actions. I love every moment of my life and thank god that I have been given the life I have!

Top Ten on Hiking John Muir Woods

The other day me and two of my best friends hiked in John Muir Woods, which is in Marin County. After a hell raising adventure finding parking, we traipsed up a 3 mile loop (half uphill). We saw a huge deer and lots and lots of redwoods. It was gorgeous and different from my everyday bay area hanging out. I definitely recommend it if you've never been, or if you'll be in the San Francisco area.

1. Feel one with nature
2. See animals close-up that you've only seen on animal planet
3. Get exercise while having the prettiest views
4. Feel a thousand miles away from city life
5. Nicely placed benches just when you're ready for a break
6. Feeling like an ant among natures greatest giants
7. Instant stress reliever
8. Easy to difficult hiking trails
9. Picture friendly
10. Ample bathrooms

Top Ten Most Annoying Parts of Booking Travel

1. Crazy Airline competition. Expedia, Orbitz, end up seeing tons of different airline prices, and just get more confused and annoyed by the second
2. Checked bag fees...ugghhhh
3. Carry-on bag fees, really?!!
4. Blackout dates for using reward points and miles...not cool man
5. Acquiring miles and points...but booking flights on so many airlines it just kinda evens out...leaving you with nothing
6. Non-refundable tickets...pahhhh-leassse!
7. Not being able to book a flight out on some airlines over six months ahead
8. Airline steals and deals causing website crashes....please get your site's together airlines!
9. Price hikes for leaving any other time besides a Wednesday at midnight
10. "Deals" for booking flight+hotel+car,, yeah....blaaaahhhhh
